What We Think
Needless to mention, both these motorcycles are incredibly capable machines. With the local partners, the prices have been quite competitive which will be a major draw for a whole bunch of bike enthusiasts. The Triumph Speed 400 is certainly more powerful than the Harley Davidson X440 which can translate into a better performance but the torque figures for both these bikes are almost identical. Hence, it would be interesting to see what the actual performance difference in the real world would be. In any case, it is hard to go wrong with either of these accomplished motorcycles since the features list on both bikes is quite extensive.
