Default Re: Special Edition Speed Triple Coming; Only 50 To Be Made.

For a go-fast bike there are precious few go-fast items here. The Speed Triple is supposed to be about speed, not poser looks. Hows about some color. I guess it's better than than brown. But some sort of candy-apple red or burnt orange would be special. And why worry about putting a competitive price on a run of only 50? Who is running that shop any way?

...then steal them from someone else. It's crime, not rocket science.

Where are the Ohlins? They're the whole point of special editions.

Ahh, the Speed Triple with the Arrow 3 into 1...the perfect way to welcome the new neighbors.

Move a few more boat anchors out of that garage and the wifey will let you have one.

Default oddness

something about this seemed strange to me as well. this bike's picture has been just background imagery more or less for the triumph website for quite a while, with no mention of it being a special edition. it was just kind of what you'd get if you used all of the carbon paneling options in the catalog.


i'd still take this bike over a stable relationship any day of the week, though.
