Info: I loved my Speed Triple but at just under 50k miles it was time to get a newer one, unfortunately funds did not allow as they hold their money really well so the next best triple buzz had to be a 955i Daytona ! This one is a 2002 Centennial Edition with 39k miles and full service history. Got a great deal and what a difference in ride, handling and power. Once the fork seals and speedo senso

Info: My first big bike after passing my test. Bought needing cosmetics and an mot, this bike was easy to work on and I replaced the shocking original white/burgandy with a gloss black. Added a Motad Nexxus s/s exhaust as the original ones were shot. When I got it on the road I found it had reasonable power and handling but poor brakes. Little wind protection from the top fairing and I never used t

Info: Found with 30k miles and standard apart from the Harris can. Paint scheme as standard is so hideous I had to change as soon as possible ! Soon got a black body from Ebay and some braided lines. The bike feels light and nimble, quick once the exup valve kicks in. Set the suspension up right and the handling is sharp. Big brakes are functional but not exceptional. Mine has had a full brake rebui

Info: 1997 P2 model in red/purple, mods include undertray, tailtidy, mini indicators, carbon hugger and Fuel stainless oval can. First impressions are WOW, compared to the YZF its quicker everywhere, smoother, more comfortable and has a lovely noise. Brakes are much stronger and front end gives lots of feedback, easy to drop on its side. The engine is less rattly, smooth and strong then the YZF, The

Info: 98'' T509 in Roulette Green. When the opportunity arose to get one of these I could not resist. The condition is superb for a 10 year old bike, especially one with 47k miles ! Lots of service history put my mind at rest. There are a few factory options fitted and a clear rear light, but otherwise totally standard. One word about the riding experience....... EPIC !
