On Two Wheels / Re: Is the new Triumph 900 a threat to the Versys 1000 ?

Not a threat for me at all.
I like Triumphs but would never own one due to the lack f dealer support in North America.
I do several long distance trips a year and would not be comfortable if I needed service or maintenance along the way.
Different story in the UK I'm sure.



same tune here...............plus  i like the Speed Twin more , i really only ride pavement so the 900 would be wasted on me .  Plus the V1 just works so well at its intended purpose that there is no other consideration for me

Above, if the bike starts.

Do you have a service manual?  From our forum ... https://www.versys1000.com/index.php/topic,20816.0.html... see troubleshooting

Why can't it start?
Is the side stand down?
Does the normal start-up whine come on?
Check the fuses if possible
Does the 2nd Gen have a kill switch?

That's just it roger,i never got any of them serviced after the 600ml,i ran them up to 5000mls then got rid of them before they needed the expensive service.

Gotcha   :028:

i had 3 1050 tigers also and agree the gearbox was crap,also had 2 zzr14's loved them.

Agreed, the ZZR 1400 is a truly amazing bike,

Interesting gaz, I'm surprised you kept going back with servicing costs that high, my mate keeps his bike under a cover outside and it still looks good

Those servicing costs are extremely high.

I owned a Tiger 1050 in 2007, it had a bloody awful gearbox, so I swapped it for a ZZR 1400  :007:

I wouldn't think they will be stealing sales,iv'e had 14 triumphs in the last 10yrs including 4 tiger 800's,sold everyone of them for the same reason,800 for a 6000ml service is taking the piss big time,my yamaha mt10 was 210,there is no way any triumph is 4 times better it's the other way round,i will never ever have another not with them prices and i had a real job of keeping the rust at bay as they are made from thailand monkey metal.
