    I have found something a bit special on eBay, ordered it and will collect it Wednesday afternoon

    An immaculate Speed Triple 2010 in a unique colour scheme, photos will be up when I collect it

    I have been looking for a 2010 SE for a little while but this came up and I was ready to buy.

    Soon for sale will be my immaculate 2016 Speed Triple R with many extras at 18,000 miles

    You'll do for me mate. I love my SE, especially since l bought a C spanner and took some preload off the rear spring. Exactly like your old one as you know. I'm considering a 955 too, feckin great bikes. All the best with it :)

    They are as rare as hens teeth, I will have to keep an eye out at Christie's auction house.

    It is a Speed Triple 2010 in deep burgundy with central jet black stripe down the centre with gold trim
    Plenty of carbon accessories but not too much, 11,000 miles.

    Can't wait to be seen riding her around, she is an eye catcher for sure

    Out of interest why are you going for an old model over the 2016 model ?

    well I just bought an RS and quite like it . I had an orange 2010 model before but do find the new one more refined and better than orange ! . Must admit though that I do miss the direct throttle response of the 2010 model, but this new one doesn't try to throw me in a hedge if I get too carried away :p

    They are undoubtedly fine bikes Richard. But park one next to an old bug eye Speedy and they just look a touch girly......

    Spot on
    It has the twin underseat chrome Arrows though
    I thought the paint work was a one off, anyone know if they are a very limited run?
    I do want to change the exhaust for a pair of carbons just for asthetic reasons, and put a Nitron R3 shock on the back and bump the front springs up to 10nm...should keep me busy
    Edit: and light up the front using a pair of black projector units

    The 2016 is like riding a computer, ride by wire throttle, ABS and traction control just feel like they are getting in the way.
    The ECU is locked too so cant even clear the service indicator myself
    Don't get me wrong, it is a fantastic bike, but the 2010 just has more soul
