Triumph Speedmaster

Changes for 2006:

  • Moody new Jet Black and Sunset Red paint scheme
  • Dark, brooding lines and a pared-down hot-rod essence make the Speedmaster a standout middleweight cruiser from every angle. Its 865cc, parallel twin-cylinder engine uses a 270 crank firing interval, giving a distinctive throbbing beat and smooth, torque-laden power delivery. Peak power of 55PS arrives at 6,500rpm, with maximum torque of 68Nm available at just 3,500rpm. Both cylinders vent through a pair of long, deep-chromed silencers while the satin-black engine finish adds a crisp, understated edge to the handsome lines of what is a very evocative powerplant.

    The riding position too, which is slightly more purposeful than the usual laid-back cruising stance, sets the Speedmaster apart. High risers mount the flat 'drag' handlebars on the slab-style top yoke and match the chromed, forward-set footpegs. The rider sits supported and 'cupped' into the gunslinger seat, ready to launch at the horizon.

    Cast wheels add style - the 18-inch front wears a 110/80 tyre, the near-solid 15-inch rear a 170/80. The twin shocks and wide-style telescopic forks straighten the curves and iron out the bumps, giving a planted and supple ride. Twin 310mm front discs - gripped by twin-piston calipers - haul the Speedmaster up extremely hard.

    As a hot-rodded 'Factory Custom', the Speedmaster proves the ethos of less is more, and minimalism is key to the bike's harder edge. The rev-counter is mounted discretely on the fuel-tank nacelle, the large round white-faced speedo perches cleanly in the rider's line of sight on its top-yoke mounting. The tank itself holds 16.6 litres of fuel, giving a useful range. The Speedmaster's paint options are plain Jet Black, Jet Black with Sunset Red infill and Jet Black with Neon Blue infill.

    If the Speedmaster's bare bones want a little more flesh on them, the Triumph accessory range features an array of bolt-ons specifically designed to lend even more appeal and individuality.

    With its punchy engine, mean looks and souped-up chassis the Speedmaster is the very essence of an old-school street rod, packing performance and style into one very individual motorcycle.
