Triumph has a swanky new factory visitor experience.
Triumph has been the oldest British motorcycle manufacturer that has a rich 115 years of heritage. Expressing this to the world, the Hinckley firm has built a brand new Factory Visitor Center for £4million ($5.3 million) spanning across eight distinctly-themed areas that combine to create a full Triumph experience.
Showcasing the brand’s achievements in design, engineering, racing and popular culture, the visitor center will allow fans to get behind the scene through both historic and modern era of motorcycles and legends riding them.
British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph upgrades their Speed Triple 1050 with a multitude of carbon fiber pieces and calls it a limited edition model. This exclusive naked motorcycle relies on the very same 1050cc inline-triple engine powering the standard Speed Triple with its 130 bhp while the Brembo brakes and Showa suspensions are also there.
The Speed Triple Carbon limited edition model additions are purely cosmetic so the only color matching the carbon fiber flyscreen, cowl, infill panels, heat shield and front fender was matt black. The handlebars have also been black painted and the mirrors were anodized.
Only 55 such bikes are available for the price of $11,800 so contacting your local dealer now would be an inspired move if you’re caught up by this unique model.
Triumph has its own special way of celebrating its entry in the World Supersport Championship as Together with the Scuderia SC Team, it has created the Garry McCoy World Supersport replica of the Daytona 675.
The bike not only celebrates the first year for Triumph racing in the World Supersport Championship, but also the Triumph-SC partnership so the new approach towards this bike had to be a little different. In fact, they’ve made it look like a racing bike with headlights, two seats and mirrors, something that puts Triumph on the map.
Because we are talking about a street bike, the Garry McCoy replica was kept “pretty much” the same. I am here referring to the tuning cylinder head and gas flowing, camshaft inlet and valve kit. Though it is improper said the same as he power commander Dynojet increases performance and Termignoni full titanium race system deals with the extra power, making the bike sound as good as it looks. It still had to remain stable through the corners so the FG Gubellini was the perfect solution for the question mark appearing in the minds of Triumph engineers.
Of course, it had to feature the Garry McCoy replica paintwork and Triumph SC decal kit and there have also been added carbon parts such as the front and rear mudguards and frame protections.
So if you were considering on buying a Triumph Daytona 675, you can now have the tuned-up and special painted version for 14,000 euros. Isn’t that great? But what if you already have a Daytona and wish to upgrade it like this? No problem at all as the kit can also be sold separately for 3,500 Euros, but you’ll have to deal with the mounting in this case.
