2007 Triumph Speed Triple 1050
Color: Black
Mileage: 52,700
Location: Atlanta Area
I recently purchased this bike from a friend that bought it new. He had some health issues last year and wanted something a bit tamer so I bought the bike to help him out. I really didn't intend to keep it (though I would like to) as I've got more now than I need. Most of the miles are from commuting. Garaged since new and in great shape cosmetically and mechanically. Regularly serviced at recommended intervals.
Upgrades as follows: Triumph Off-Road Silencers w/TORS tune, Bikemaster Superbike Handlebars, with custom grips, CRG Blindsight billet aluminum bar-end mirrors, Triumph color-matched rear seat cowl, Smaller, custom front turn signals w/clear lenses, Clear Alternatives Fender eliminator kit w/integrated turn signals, TechSpec Snake Skin tank pads, Monster Energy Tank Protector, Blade Style Clutch & Brake Levers (Machined Billet 6061 T6 Aluminum with 6-position Roll-N-Click Adjustment). $4,295

Only if it has a sidecar on it.  ;D

$600 less than original asking price. Is 52K on a well maintained bike such a big deal ? Really ??

Mine is 10 years older and has lived a hard life (two ocean voyages, two years in storage, use in all kinds of weather, me as a home mechanic) and is still pulling strong at 98,660 miles. So I wouldn't say 52,700 miles is disqualification. The trouble is, in this country where most people think motorcycles are toys, there are always low-mileage used bikes available.

Had decided to keep the bike after last selling efforts here (2016) but I just don't get to ride it enough to justify keeping. Other than needing tires and fork seal(s) it is still mint. Has just over 54K on it now but still looks, runs & rides great. Lance (motociclista) has one just like it with over 100K on it. This bike has many good miles left in it.
 
Could be yours for only $2,895 !!! (metro ATL)

That just seems like an exceptionally good deal. Hope it goes quick.

And if it doesn't, hang in there. Based on past behavior, I'm expecting the entire used market to pick up as soon as Bubbles makes his last alimony payment.

My '97 rolled over 110,000 miles last weekend and it's not nearly as good a bike as a 2007.

Oh ok. Thought yours was same year for some reason. Still a good testament to the brand and model  8)
