Presented at Intermot Cologne, the new range cruiser has a lot to Triumph. In Italy is one of two segments, along with the tourist, who gave a positive signal. Here then is that the English House renewed its long forks. After testing the America Bikes more style “fat” by the conduct peaceful and easy to drive, is now the turn of the Triumph Speedmaster.
The look is much more aggressive sister and custom America. The target to which it is addressed to a user looking for a first bike and wrists just looking for a custom and aggressive driving pleasure first performance, but as we shall test some satisfaction there you can take in the saddle the Speedmaster.
If the chassis and engine, the classic parallel twin 865 cc Triumph of 61CV of power and 72Nm of torque, remain unchanged, the look has been changed to make it more custom. It has been lightened by removing the front fairing of the fork and one of the two brake discs, the wing is thinner and the name actually is skinny and has built a new larger front wheel with tire 19 “. For the ride comfort has been improved triangle handlebar-seat-platform: the first floor was enlarged and positioned closer to the rider to move closer to a wider range of riders. The saddle lowered to 690mm from the floor while the footrests have been approached for a seat more comfortable and less tiring.
The latter has been streamlined by acting on the wing which is no more in common with America but the style is cut-off, more custom then. In general, the intention was to remove as much as possible while maintaining the essential and eliminating the chrome for the benefit of black as the casing and the engine. The result is a motorcycle from the look is clean and minimalist.The price is the same America that is € 8,990. Not to create internal competition, but to put the customer in front of a choice. The purchase of one over another is not an economic but becomes more of character and taste. The Triumph Speedmaster is available in two colors: the classic Phantom Black Metallic and the new and original Cranberry Red.
