Triumph has introduced special edition of two of its motorcycles, the Bonneville and the Speed Triple. Both machines now look much prettier than their standard models and feature mostly cosmetic changes.
The iconic Bonneville special edition motorcycle gets a matte black paint job with the cranberry red finish on the tank-top, fenders and frame and this has added some spice to the look. The mirrors and headlight mount are covered in black chrome whereas the grab rail gets the black normal finish.
The Speed Triple special edition is now painted with matte graphite color with blue finish on the frame, wheel pinstriping and the swingarm which makes this motorcycle look absolutely stunning. It also sport the carbon fibre jewelry abounds which includes the front fender, side pods and the fuel tank cover. The seat gets a stripe line over it, new mirrors and rubber tank pad. The exhaust heat shields, handlebars and clamps are painted with black.
Mechanically, both the motorcycles remain unchanged. The Bonneville and the Speed triple special edition has been priced at $7999 (Rs 4.40 lakh) and $13,399 (Rs 7.35 lakh) respectively. We are expecting a launch for the Indian market once Triumph have successfully established its operations in India which will happened in next few months.
