The test ride bikes all came with radiator guards as well. They should make that standard too considering this is India.

Guys. The stock bike will come with bar end mirrors. Thatís not in doubt. I just remembered they also have bar end mirrors as an accessory which sport a slightly different finish - thatís why youíre seeing it in the accessory list as well.

I was going through my pics archive and Iíve put pics of both the bikes - one of stock test ride bike (top half of each pic) and one of the bike which had all the accessories displayed (bottom half of each pic). Iíve zoomed in to show the mirrors in one of the pic collages. Youíll notice other differences too like headlight grill, small windscreen, round indicators, etc. etc.

Re: Triumph Speed 400 Review

From data that I've collected from various reputed reviewers.. Basic bar end mirrors, non-metallic sump guard & engine guard are standard on TS400.

Re: Triumph Speed 400 Review

Why do bar end mirrors (in general) cost so much btw? Even Dominar 400 mirror costs half with more metal/material. And that's a sturdy heavy make compared to regular stalk mirrors.

You must have a crazy appetite if you grew out of Gen 1 Duke 390. I own the Gen 2 2018 Duke 390 and 2021 RC390 and I can still get myself in trouble if I get too enthusiastic. I don't think I need more power for Indian conditions. I keep tuning it and adding performance parts every few months and it has kept me very well engaged since 2018. Of course I still dream of owning a Busa one day but I know it's overkill. But dreams should be overkill. Practically, I'll still have a bike just like my RC390 always as long as I ride in India.

Re: Triumph Speed 400 Review

Let me add that even the though the power was good, the machine was not refined/smooth. Jerky throttle response may the be the word I believe. After a while we just become tired. And its true, we are always made to ride fast since that's when the bike is smoother comparatively and the engine feels at home. The current 390, I tested the SW ADV390, is so much smoother in response. I feel its not quick compared to Gen 1 but good nonetheless. Plus my riding is mainly limited to 0-100kmph in general (can't maintain speeds above that in Kerala for long). Its more about acceleration and less top speed for me.

Which is why the Speed 400 seems good. Similar acceleration like current duke but less frantic. I would have liked a 0-100 of 5 seconds. The G1 Duke 390 was closer to this figure I think.

Re: Triumph Speed 400 Review

Received a call from Triumph Pashan Pune to check if my booking is confirmed.

The person on the line told me that Test Rides are starting THIS MONTH (not August). We will be called in for TRs when the bikes arrive.

He asked me for my booking receipt which I forwarded to him on WhatsApp, nothing else to report.

Looks like "Riya Triumph Ahmedabad" is the slowest amongst them! No news or updates whatsoever from them

They had originally told me that test ride bikes will be available in late July, and deliveries will begin in August. There is no further update from the dealer, but Triumph India keeps on sending messages to keep the engagement up.

Let's hope we get to hear something soon. I firstly want to see the actual bike.

This is how you learn to kill the engine. He is not using the clutch "AT ALL".

However the engine sound is decent, but a few reviewers state that the engine does not sound well. Still, trying to figure out whom to believe?

He said Speed 400 sounds similar to the Dominar 400 which is not a bad thing (in another comparo video). The Dual exhaust option should only make things better, even if marginal. The dual exhaust doesn't look big enough I would add compared to the stock exhaust.

Re: Triumph Speed 400 Review



The video shows us the Headlight LED quality. Seems decent on video if not exceptional. I was expecting poor Headlight throw. Low beam better than high beam. I feel auxillary lights necessary for highway rides. Maybe other videos will pop up now. How come no other review focused on the headlight usability? What is axe777's opinion on the headlight?

Re: Triumph Speed 400 Review

The most awaited comparo is here: Speed 400 vs Duke 390.
