Something to consider, customer support and service. I own a Triumph and I love it. However, scheduled maintnance is very expensive, $600, to $1000 a year. Second, I have found that warranty service is worthless. I have had problems with front brakes, fuel tank venting, rear brake mount, and loose steering head bearings. All issues had to be resolved by me because Triumph was not interested. Another issue is parts. It took four months to get replacement bulbs for the instrument cluster. I know four other people who own or have owned Triumphs, similar stories.
