    I'd forgotten that I had posted this here. Sadly, the story doesn't end there and is, ultimately, rather tragic.

    I picked up the replacement bike on 11th February. I immediately did 100miles on it. Bike felt great. The QS was crisper, and the brakes felt better to me (more feel / modulation).

    Got it home that evening, fitted a bunch of my accessories (sat nav, wiring for heated gloves etc) and then, less the 24 hours later, while doing some more running in miles, I'd managed to low-side it on a completely benign turn. Resulting in it being damaged to such an extent, so as to be declared a total loss / write-off by the insurance company.

    No idea what happened. Riding sensibly, and to the conditions (slightly damp, but nowhere near "wet"). Bike let got before I even made it to the entry point of the turn. Felt like the back went but not sure anymore. Could have been the front. Went down like a sack of spuds. Thankfully I had good gear on and my Tech Air 5 almost certainly saved me from injury.

    Most plausible explanation is that I asked too much of the tyres for the conditions (even though I think I was taking it really easy). Something about the whole thing just felt off to me so I'm walking away from Triumph for now.

    Insurance are paying out and I've got a Tuono V4 Factory coming tomorrow.

    sorry to hear that sort of news. But good news that you aren’t damaged….
    Quality riding gear pays off once again. Good luck with the Aprilia. Keep using the forum though as it’s a great place to be.
    Can you post some photos once you get the Tuono..?
    Hopefully this one will last a bit longer…

    Yes, indeed.

    I'll try and keep this one butter side up!

    The Lounge will do for non-Triumph topics. Put a thread in there.

    Yeah, really unfortunate turn of events. I was all-in on the 1200RS because I loved my 1050R and it never missed a beat other than a couple of false neutrals with the QS that resolved itself.

    The 1200RS is, without doubt, a weapon of a bike but the initial reliability issues and then the accident have just put me off. So I figured best to walk away.

    Got a cracking deal on the Tuono which made it a no brainer (had a 2014 V4 RR prior to the 1050R). £16,200 including the Akra.

    Sometimes you just feel cursed! A change of scene is probably the right move.

    Hopefully Spring is just around the corner and we can all start to enjoy the bikes again on some warm, dry, sunny days.

    Hey Neal, yeah I think you're right. I just posted on PH, the Tuono arrived earlier today and the insurance cheque. Happy days!

    44 Teeth put a 1200RS on the Dyno and came up with 156bhp at the rear wheel, which if you factor in a 12% loss from crank to wheel, equates to 177bhp, so spot on to Triumph’s claim.

    Hi guys
    Don't know if people are aware that there's another triumph speed triple 1200rs recall
    Rear rotor bolts.... also for those people who have had "low oil pressure " warnings..triumph have a so called ecu update to solve the problem......well on some bikes I've been told by my dealer if not solve the problem there gonna put new oil pump on all bikes that don't get fixed by the magic ecu update.....yet again so I've been told by dealership....

    I only rode my Speed Twin and CBR650R for last 5-6 weeks ... climbing back on the Speed Triple 1200 my god it's a missile, short shifting and it's still at 100 so fast.

    Evotech.it tail tidy. Looks different, compared to evotech performance tail tidy..... more "road legal"

    It was not exactly plug&play, as they advertised on their web, but it could be installed with few basic tools and 3-4 hours free time for it.
