ive never seen any kind of numbers dyno or 1/4 mile times to see how fast they are and if they are to aggressive for a newbie? i dropped by a Triumph store here in San Antonio, Tx but they tell u its an awsome bike no matter what. one thing that did catch my eye is that it is cheaper on the insurance than the other brands i.e. yamaha r6 and suzuki gsx-r600 because it falls into a different catogoery. i know these questions are asked all the time so if u are readin this thread and dont even feel like typin a sentence in, a simple yes or no answer will suffice.
