Street Triple 675 Rx, with tasteful mods, FDSH, 12.6K miles, £5,300
I love those bike 'for sale' Ads that start by saying how this is a "very reluctant, heart-breaking, please don't make me sell it" sale of their beloved bike.
This isn't one of those Ads, I want to sell my 2015 Street Triple 675 Rx because I want a Speed Triple 1200 RS, and I wouldn't be advertising it if I didn't
However, that doesn't mean I don't love this bike. You can read my history of posts on this forum for a full history of the bike.
As an Rx, the bike is equivalent to a Street Triple R, but with a quickshifter as standard, and a Daytona rear subframe, which gives it a slimmer rear.
I bought it new from Triumph Norfolk in September 2015, and it has been annually serviced there, including annual oil changes, etc, and the expensive major valve check at 12K miles. It's now done ~12,650 miles.
It's been used, but also cherished. It lives in a brick garage, I SORN it over winter, and don't bring it out until salt is cleared from the roads. It's occasionally been ridden in the rain, but gets a regular dousing in ACF-50 for protection.
It currently has Metzeler Sportec M7 RRs on, with about 4K miles on, which have a very healthy amount of tread remaining - my original set lasted 8.5K miles.
The bike has never had any issues at all, and never been dropped or crashed. If it had, I would have taken it to the dealer for repair, and they can vouch for the bike.
The only problem I've had was the recent front wheel ding from a [presumed] pothole, which I sorted by replacing with a brand new wheel from Triumph. Full background on that is here
The bike is matt silver. This was my first matt paint bike, and I was very sceptical about it, but prepared to get it sprayed a gloss colour if it didn't work out. As it happens, the paint has been a relevation, and I went on to also buy a matt Ducati 959 Corse as a result of this experience.
The bike comes with tasteful mods,
SC Project Conic exhaust, which is street legal, and comes with a card to say so.
Triumph upgrade rear sets (they were £300+ alone)
Triumph LED indicators
Triumph black anodised reservoirs
Triumph bar end mirrors
Triumph tank protector pad (with some wear, as it been doing its job)
Triumph short levers (which I think work great on this bike)
Evotech tail tidy
Evotech shark fin / toe protector
Evotech radiator guard
Evotech rear foot peg blanking plates (I've removed rear pillion pegs, but have them to replace)
MCT tuned suspension (MCT are highly regarded, and have a standard ST3 mod to soften front forks)
Lithium battery + Optimate charging lead (Lithium battery charger not included)
Supabrake-2 (a gizmo that flashes the brake light as a safety feature, but can be turned off, or removed)
Datatag security ID, that can be transferred to new owner
The bike has Kriega tank bag straps in the photo, but these will be removed before sale.
I know people say to return to stock before selling, but I don't intend to do that. I've got the bike exactly how I want it, and it would be a crying shame to return it to stock.
The bike will be supplied with all original parts, except the original lead acid battery. It also comes with an (unused) pillion seat option to switch with the rear seat cowl.
The bike is due its next MOT and minor annual service in September.
I consider it to be in used but very good, if not excellent condition, and if it wasn't, I would have got it sorted. The worst area is the headers are a discoloured, but that is only cosmetic.
It should be apparent from the above, and reading my posts over the years, that this has been a cherished, and well looked after bike with no expense spared (for example, I refuse to put supermarket fuel in any of my cars or bikes), with no issues.
It has all the documentation you would want to see: manual, service book, receipts, and spare key. The bike was bought cash, so there is no outstanding finance.
As said at the start, this isn't a reluctant sale, but the bike has been amazing, and I will miss it when you buy it, for the amazingly good, priced to sell, price of £5,300.
I'm based in Newmarket, Suffolk, and work from home, so very available for viewings. No test rides, sorry.
It's a gem of a bike, don't miss out. PM me if interested.
