Just for the record , i agree with Hayden. The Sprint or speed triple isnt a hard core sportbike,you wont be able to keep up with the current top tier superbikes at 10-10ths but it is easy to fast on. Skydorks situation is puzzling because ive NEVER heard anyone ever having engine problems , oil leaking ect on any of the NEW Triumphs. I have heard such problems with the old 1950s 1960s engines but thats comparing apples to oranges .

My buddies bike may be the exception. He certainly let the oil level get way too low on his own and that caused the spun bearing. But when doing some research on the issue on some of the forums, using oil over a length of time seemed to be more common.

Fun bike though! not knocking it at all. Just sharing my experience.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

The only modern engine that I have seen that burns oil is the Honda CBR1000RR. My 2008 Burnt 1 quart per 1000 miles .Irreguardless of the oil consumption the CBR1000RR seemingly runs forever.

Even Harley Davidson have increased in durability By using premium metals,increased quality control,testing and the latest assembly technologies. You Can get 100,000 miles on the engine before an overhaul.

The Korean-Taiwonese-India brands like Hyosung,CFMOTO,Royal Enfield have modern assembly plants....but... use
the same poor quality metals as the ultra cheap mail order Chinese brands. The difference between the 2 is modern assembly makes the Korean-Taiwonese-India DEPENDABLE , but not DURABLE. Meaning they start/run well till 20,000/30,000 miles then the cylinders are worn oval burning oil . Most people never know this for they never put that many miles on a bike.. I wonder what would happen if one of these Korean-India ect companies built a cheap Harley full dresser Clone for 9000$. Being a simple design after the engine is worn at 20-30k a quick cylinder/piston replacement could be worth the 20,000$ cost saving
