TnT 1130 and also Cafe Racer


Recommended Posts

I bought a TnT in 2007, the lay out is as follows:- ( £8700 now about 7500)

3 cylinder

1130 cc

135 Bhp

approx 150 mph top speed.


Positives

In my opinion great looking (read as marmite, you either love or loath)

Great grunty engine. The triple has the best of all formats

You always know where you park it ( nothing else looks like it)

Great handling


Negatives

High service costs

Poor fuel economy in high power mode (not that good in low power mode)

Poor residual unless you stay with dealership.

Over 150 miles in a day was V painful to the backside.

Sounded like it was a diesel train.

Group 17 insurance


The Cafe Racer (9700pounds)was exactly the same engine but looked better it also has a bit of carbon on it. It has clip ons and is more comfortable for longer trips. I toured Normandy France on one.



I did approx 9 K miles in three years on the two and truely enjoyed the bikes. I would recommend one to anyone as long as they were aware of the costs.
