    Purchasing a 2014 Speed Triple - What to look out for?

    Hi guys, I am considering purchasing a 2014 Speed Triple that has come up locally for sale.
    Are there any known issues/recalls I should be looking out for?
    I tried doing a search on here for that specific MY and didn't come up with much.

    Thank you for your help.

    You should be good. Most wrinkles have been ironed out by 2014. Most of the issues were with the models prior to 2010.

    Thank you for the positive feedback. I've been reading some engine threads and it seems to be a fairly solid motor.

    Motors have always been good. Prior years had stator issues and some other minor things. Nothing major.

    Look at the standard stuff as with any used motorcycle, tires, brakes, chain, overall condition and service records...

    I have a 2014 Speed Triple R since new. I have have not an ounce of trouble. I do regular maintenance and I change replaced the original Pirelli Corsa tires. This is my third bike and by far my favorite.
