Triumph Speed Triple R ‘Dark’ launched!

Triumph's Speed Triple R 'Dark'. Only 30 will be made.
Triumph has knocked-out another limited edition version of one of its best-sellers with a fancy new paint job.

The limited-edition Speed Triple R ‘Dark’ has been painted by leading custom paint shop 8-Ball. Just 30 of them will be built.

The bike features standard specification kit as you’d get on any Speed Triple R, but also gets a colour-matched bellypan and fly screen as standard.

The paintwork uses a crystal midnight black veil effect over bright scarlet red. The bike’s livery is airbrushed in intense white with a smoky aged appearance. Both sides of the tank carry a hand airbrushed union flag.

Triumph’s Bruno Tagliaferri said: “Each special edition Speed Triple R is an individual, with its unique number hand painted on the tank. These bikes really do look the business and with just 30 available, we anticipate they will attract strong interest.”

The new bikes cost £11,549 on-the-road and will be on sale from February 18.
