Mean and Moody
Stripped down and laid bare, the new Triumph Speedmaster is a small cruiser that makes a big statement.
At the heart of the bike is our revered 865cc parallel twin engine, a classic configuration favoured by custom builders around the world.
Re-engineered for 2014 for better tonal quality - the fuel-injected unit delivers a peppy 61PS and 72Nm of torque with a satisfying growl befitting the sporting looks.
The look is dominated by the 19” cast aluminium front wheel with single disc brake and ‘skinny’ tyre, giving a classic chopped hot-rod look. Emphasising the Speedmaster’s dark attitude even further a whole host of components – from wheels to bars and headlights to foot controls – get the black treatment for 2014.
The Speedmaster sports a low, 690mm, seat height which, when married to the wide handlebars deliver a comfortable and intuitive riding position. To complete the look, the Speedmaster sports blacked out engine cases, a carefully crafted teardrop tank, minimalist mudguards, a 15” cast rear wheel with high profile tyre and a small single headlight design.
The new Speedmater is available in Phantom Black or Matt Graphite with twin Matt Black centre stripes – OTR from £7,199.
