As of today 9/17, Triumph's web site has been updated to include 1 new model, the rebirth of another, and the continuation of the T100.

The new model, called the Speedmaster, is a factory custom based on the Bonneville America featuring a "gunslinger" saddle, flat bars and cut fenders along with the same 790 paralllel twin engine.

The rebirth of the Thunderbird sport...

And the T100, whose original purpose was to be as a limited production model celebrating the centenial, but who came in such low numbers due to the fire that they decided to keep the model.

Noticeably absent from the lineup was the fabeled '22', a rumored super cruiser, based around an inline triple displacing some 2200cc. Also absent was a promised TT600R which was supposed to signal Triumph's racing intentions for 2003 AMA Supersport season.

Maybe there's still more to come? Check www.triumph.co.uk for more details, photos and specs.
