Triumph’s first offering in the vitally important 600cc class, the TT600 arrived in 2000 to less than universal acclaim. Handling and braking were judged as good as any, but the fuel injection needed further work, a shortcoming addressed by a succession of improved fuelling ‘maps’ downloadable from Triumph dealers. By 2002 Triumph had eliminated most of the glitches. “The TT’s power curve is now a smooth, straight-ish line with no untoward dips and bumps to trap the unwary,” revealed Bike magazine. “It’s still a long way short of most of the other (Japanese 600cc) bikes on peak power, but in the low- to mid-range it’s a very different story.” There, the Triumph’s high torque and low gearing really scored, making it one of the most useable bikes in everyday traffic conditions. “The TT has the best combination of handling and ride quality, for normal riders on normal roads – not just of any bike here, but of anything you can buy,” enthused Bike. And despite the lower gearing the TT was still good for 150mph!This TT600 has covered a mere 8,700 miles from new and has not been used on the road for the past 12 months. The vendor advises us that minor damage to the fairing has been expertly repaired and that the machine seems to be in full working order. Nevertheless, some gentle re-commissioning may be required before further use. The machine is offered with MoT to March 2007 and Swansea V5 document.
