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. Now 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.
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.
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.
The limited edition 15th Anniversary Speed Triple is available at authorized Triumph dealers throughout North America.
