    So, just out of interest, I had a look at the new bike prices. The Sherman.com site is exactly the same as the Limey.co.uk site.

    How come the Speed Triple is £15,100 here and $18,300 there? £15,100 equates to $20,911. Why are Triumphs dearer here than in Shermanland?

    Probably because it costs more to ship it here from Thailand

    Blimey $2,500 to ship from the US to the UK? All those NOVA barnfinds?

    US Speed Triple is $18,300 (£13,150)
    Ze Germans Speed Triple is 16,150 Euros (£14,000)
    Suid Afrika Speed Triple is R259,000 (£12,900)

    Is everyone here using PCP and are we robbed by all motorcycle manufacturers?

    Ray - Me thinks we need to stick to the pre 80s Trumpets ;)

    From what I understand many US states have a load of add-ons. So the Triumph US list price is not accurate for what a punter over there pays. Still think they are a bit cheaper over all though (any manuf.)

    VAT on vehicles in the UK. In Ireland it is even worse, we have higher VAT of 23% and a VRT (which the UK ditched years ago). VRT on my Tiger was an extra €1565.
