Triumph Announces Bonneville and Speed Triple Special Editions
Triumph Motorcycles announced two special edition SE models of its iconic Bonneville and Speed Triple bikes.
The new Special Edition Bonneville, with its characteristic 865cc engine, retro chrome styling and cast aluminium wheels, boasts an array of enhancements to create a hugely distinctive bike. The motorcycle has a bold red frame and distinctive Matte Black and Cranberry Red paint scheme. The front end gets new front indicators and headlight (as per the Thruxton), while the rear end sees the addition of a black pillion grab rail and “bash” plate. Contemporary black mirrors complete the new look. The Bonneville SE also sports a unique seat design comprising new stitching and vinyl covering.
The Special Edition Speed Triple is also based on the current model, powered by Triumph’s charismatic 1050cc 3-cylinder engine. Boasting a distinctive blue frame and swingarm, the Speed Triple SE comes in Matte Graphite with twin Matte Blue decals. The special edition gets the lightweight treatment with a carbon fiber front mudguard, side pods, tank cover panel and inner radiator panels. The color-matched fly screen, belly pan and seat cowl all come as standard, as well as finishing details such as a rubber tank pad and clear rear light. A new styled clutch, alternator and sprocket cover further enhances the makeover. Finishing the look are blue wheel pinstripes, new styled mirrors and black silencer heat shields, handlebars and clamps.
Both Special Edition motorcycles will be available via the U.S. Triumph dealer network starting May 1, 2013. The Bonneville SE is priced at $7,999 while the Speed Triple SE will retail at $13,399.
