1. Triumph Colour coded fly screen and visor.
2. Triumph rear hugger.
3. Triumph gel seat.
4. Scotoiler fitted.
5. Shortie black levers.
6. Bar end mirrors (originals included)
7. SP Engineering Moto GP carbon cans, sound fantastic (originals included)
8. Carbon 4U front fender (original included)
9. British flag tank pad.
10. Fitted with Metzeler Z8 tri compound Tyres fitted 2k miles ago and have easily got another 4k left in them.
11. R and G crash bungs.
12. R and G engine slider.
13. R and G stand bobbins.
14. Beowulf rad guard in black.
15. Triumph colour coded belly pan.

Oh sorry i read it as having 12k not 15k. Still get the r. The extras can allways be added later.

Would you say the 15k would be a problem, i mean are they reliable enough?

Get the R, just the adjustable suspension and better brakes make it worth it, the Leo vince exhausts will probably sound gorgeous too.

See if you can test ride both versions?

Yes get the R just for the increase in resale value when you sell it.

Either will be great.
I would have personally swayed towards the standard one with all the gear if it wasn't black. They look a bit boring in black. Therefore I'd go for the R.

Test ride both! I found the R far too hard for everyday riding and a lttle harsh on my wrists so bought the standard street. Even though the R has adjustable sussies its still budget and most people replace it with aftermarket shizzle anyway. At 15k if the bikes been looked after its still good for a few k more.

Whichever you decide on they are bloody good bikes. Really easy to wheelie too.
