Triumph Speed Triple special editions

Category : Biker News

Triumph Speed Triple special editions

TRIUMPH has launched two special edition models, the Speed 94 and 94R, based on its Speed Triple range.

The new bikes have been given various styling tweaks over the standard models to celebrate the first Speed Triple rolling off the production line 21 years ago.

The 94 is based on the lower-spec Speed Triple and will be offered in Racing Yellow or Jet Black. Other changes include a subframe painted in a graphite finish, black exhaust silencer wraps, a black filler cap, a colour-matched fly screen, seat cowl and belly pan. 

Each 94 also comes with Speed Triple logos in the original 1994 typeface and a commemorative Speed Triple 94 tank-mounted plaque.

The 94R comes with all the same styling tweaks as the 94 but gets fully-adjustable Ohlins suspension, Brembo monobloc brakes and Pirelli Supercorsa tyres, as found on the higher-spec Speed Triple R.

Both machines will be available from April priced at £9,749 for the Speed 94 and £10,999 for the R version.

Triumph also announced it will be offering a number of new colour schemes on its Daytona 675 and Thunderbird range, also available from April.

The Daytona 675 will now be available in a Crystal White and Jet Black combination, as well as a Diablo Red and Matt Silver finish.

The Thunderbird Commander will be offered in a Lithium Flame and Frozen Silver finish. Triumph’s Thunderbird LT will be available in a Crystal White and Phantom black finish, and the Thunderbird Storm will get a new Lava Red paint scheme.

Best mobile phone Gps

I’m looking and I’m at the point of frustration with Google. It’s hard to export a route done on Google maps to a non 3/4 g based platform like copilot etc but seems easier with a garmin gps. I’m still searching for a good setup but I came across this and thought I’d share:bikerie:

Photos Irish Championship Mondello 29/03/15

With a icy wind that would have a polar bear looking for shelter, the 1st round of the Irish Championship races took place at Mondello on Sunday.
The weather was very changeable throughout the day and the rain seemed determined to fall each time the Superbikes were coming out, so it was "steady as she goes" for the main part. I think it was Brian McCormack that said it’s only the start of a long season, so it wasn’t a day for heroics.
With that said, there were a few trips to the gravel and a few offs, as far as I know none too serious, but "get well soon" to anyone who was injured.

But most importantly – We’re underway for 2015! :thumbsup2:

P.S. Have a thought for the poor togs who had to expose their naked shooting hands to the elements and risk severe cases of frostbite:biggrin_old::biggrin_old:

A few photos below and plenty more on the site as usual :thumbsup2:

Side gate for the house

Hey guys and gals, I my trying to get my bike down the side of the house but it is very tight.

Actually at the posts of the side gate I can’t manuveure the bars in at all :(:(

Therefore this side gate must go. Has anyone had the same sort of problem before? Does anyone know what sort of hinges I could use to give me MAX room to get the fat bars in?
