2010 Triumph Speed Triple Special Edition

Triumph is celebrating 15 years of its most successful model with a distinctive new high-specification special edition of the 1050cc Speed Triple. The Speed Triple is so significant to Triumph, that company owner John Bloor has authorised use of his signature on the fuel tank for the very first time on the 15th Anniversary Special Edition.

Adding to the desirability of the new model, each buyer will receive an exclusive Speed Triple 15th Anniversary watch as a special gift. This high-quality timepiece will not be available to buy separately and is only available to purchasers of the bike.

History

Triumph is celebrating 15 years of the Speed Triple, the most

successful motorcycle of the company-s modern Hinckley era, with a distinctive limited edition model.

Triumph pioneered the now-famous -streetfighter- style in the early 1990s by pulling inspiration

from a growing group of enthusiasts that were modifying their track-based motorcycles for a more

menacing look on the street. The -streetfighter- or -naked- category of motorcycles was born and the

Speed Triple has maintained a strong hold on the category ever since.

The limited edition 15th Anniversary Speed Triple stays true to the bike-s original inspiration by

featuring unique Phantom Black metallic paint, hand-finished red pinstriped wheels and -15th Anniversary Special Edition- decals on the flyscreen and rear bodywork. A number of Genuine Triumph accessories available as options for the regular Speed Triple come as standard equipment to complete the custom look of the 15th Anniversary model, including a gel seat and a color-matched flyscreen and bellypan.

This anniversary has prompted John Bloor, the British entrepreneur who rescued Triumph and

rebuilt the marque to become one of the fastest growing motorcycle manufacturers in the world, to

authorize the use of his signature on a production model for the very first time.

-There are very few motorcycles that truly break through and shift design for the entire sport. The

Speed Triple is one of those motorcycles,- said Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles. -The Speed Triple has been refined over the years for even better styling and performance, but the bike has always remained true to the original concept and has always been one of the most recognized streetfighter style motorcycles. It is one of Triumph-s greatest success stories.-

Each new owner also will receive an exclusive Speed Triple 15th Anniversary watch as a special gift.

This high quality, marine grade timepiece takes its styling cues from the motorcycle itself with stylish red and black detailing, and is only available to those who purchase the anniversary edition motorcycle.

The watch is custom designed with a stainless steel case, crown and pusher buttons. It has a tachymeter on the bezel, high-precision three-hand movement with date, and is water resistant up to 328 feet. The timepiece-s integrated leather strap sports a stainless steel buckle with engraved logo.

More than 35,000 Speed Triples have been sold since the model was introduced. First hitting the

showrooms in February 1994, the three-cylinder Speed Triple embodies Triumph-s British bulldog spirit.

Drawing heavily on the influence of the stripped down café racers of the 1960s, the first models were

powered by a 97hp version of Triumph-s modular engine and were a regular sight on British race tracks in the thrilling Speed Triple Challenge racing series.

Over the years, the Speed Triple evolved to become the definitive factory streetfighter. The arrival

of the fuel-injected T509 Speed Triple in 1996 saw the introduction of the radical twin bug-eyed

headlights, single-sided swing arm and oval section frame that have since become Speed Triple

trademarks. In 1998 the streetfighter look was completed with the switch from low-slung clip-on

handlebars to the classic tall and wide handlebars. The Speed Triple also hit Hollywood, first in the Matrix and then alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2. With each generation, the Speed Triple has become lighter, more powerful and brimming with even more attitude.

Weighing in at 416 lbs. and developing 130hp and 77 ft. lbs. of torque, the 2009 Speed Triple is

the lightest and most powerful version to date. The bike-s distinctive triple sound is accompanied by a

Triumph Speed Triple Special Edition

smooth and muscular power curve that pulls strongly from idle to red line. Handling is agile and precise

and is augmented by powerful Brembo radial front caliper brakes.

The limited edition 15th Anniversary Speed Triple is available at authorized Triumph dealers

throughout North America.

The Speed Triple is the most popular Triumph of the Hinckley era, selling over 35,000 units since being introduced for the 1994 model year. Such is the significance of the Speed Triple to Triumph, company owner John Bloor has authorised use of his signature on the fuel tank for the very first time on the 15th Anniversary Special Edition.

The limited edition model comes in a unique metallic Phantom Black colour scheme, with hand finished red pinstriped wheels to match unique -15th Anniversary Special Edition- decals on the rear bodywork and flyscreen complete the special edition-s sophisticated yet aggressive look.

The Speed Triple 15th Anniversary Special Edition is based on the 2009 Speed Triple and comes equipped with a number of additional items as standard, including a colour matched bellypan and flyscreen. Also included is a stylish and comfortable Gel Seat from the Genuine Triumph Accessories range.

Adding to the desirability of the new model, each buyer will receive an exclusive Speed Triple 15th Anniversary watch as a special gift. This high-quality timepiece will not be available to buy separately and is only available to purchasers of the bike.

Commenting on the special edition, Tue Mantoni, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles, explained: -The Speed Triple has become one of the great success stories of the Triumph Hinckley era and epitomises the evolution that our brand has gone through in that time. A lot of things have happened in the 15 years since the first Speed Triple hit the showrooms but the purity of the concept has remained the same. The bike remains one of the most exciting models on the market today and this limited edition model is a fitting way to pay tribute to a true Triumph icon.-

First hitting the showrooms in February 1994, the three-cylinder Speed Triple has been the quintessential embodiment of Triumph-s British Bulldog spirit. Initially drawing heavily on the influence of the stripped down café racers of the 1960s, the first models were powered by a 98PS version of Triumph-s modular engine and were a regular sight on British race tracks in the thrilling Speed Triple Challenge race series.

Over the years, the Speed Triple evolved to become the definitive factory streetfighter. The arrival of the fuel-injected T509 Speed Triple in 1996 saw the introduction of the radical twin bug-eyed headlights, single-sided swingarm and oval section frame that have become Speed Triple trademarks ever since. In 1998 the streetfighter look was completed with the switch from low-slung clip-ons to the classic tall and wide handlebars.

The Speed Triple also hit Hollywood, first in the Matrix and secondly playing a starring role alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2. With each generation the Speed Triple has become lighter, more powerful and brimming with even more attitude. Whatever the improvements, the Speed Triple has always remained faithful to the minimalist approach that has gained the bike a cult following around the world.

Weighing in at 189kg and developing 132PS and 105Nm of torque, the 2009 Speed Triple is the lightest and most powerful version to date. With its distinctive triple sound accompanying a muscular linear power delivery that pulls strongly from tickover to red line, combined with precise and agile handling and powerful Brembo radial front caliper brakes, the Speed Triple perfectly embodies the streetfighter spirit and, like most 15 year olds, is most definitely a bike with attitude, vigour and a lust for life.
