I read somewhere on this forum that owners of the '95 Speed Triple couldn't make up their minds as to how many gears the '95 model had. As I understand it both the '94 and '95 models had 5 gears and anything after that had 6. My own experience with my '95 Triple was that it had 5 gears and was the norm for all these models. The only negative I have to say about this model is that I was left stranded with a busted spraque clutch which cost me an arm and a leg to get fixed. If you've had a '95 Triple and sold it before or have never experienced the spraque clutch problem, think yourself lucky. I purchased mine in 2007 and sold it in 2011, graduating to a Sprint ST 955i which I sold in June this year. I've now upgraded to a 2011 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX ABS Quattro, a totally different type of MC which I'm very happy with. I've had several Triumphs, both Meriden and Hinckley, but with the bad experience from Triumph workshops here in Norway have now dropped them entirely. Pity really, since the Hinckley Triumphs are an excellent machine.
