I loved my 675 but the motor blew on me @12k!!!! Immaculate condition and meticulously maintained...seems to be a common problem for the 07's (which i had). Spun bearing in #2 cylinder, destroyed the crank! I will never buy another triumph again! so disappointed but a gorgeous bike...loved the sound too! Oh and btw....parts are very expensive and hard to find compared to Jap bikes..

Keep in mind that catastrophic failure can happen on any brand itís unfortunate but it happens. As for parts yes there are far less used parts and they cost more. New parts cost about the same as Japanese brands. Triumph does have issues with parts availability on unusual parts and occasionally on common parts. But as a whole they are far better then most low production brands like Ducati, MV, Aprilia. People donít think of them as a exotic brand but by the production numbers they definitely are.
