The new-for-2011 Triumph Speedmaster features a host of updates to deliver an improved riding experience and an even more aggressive appearance. The stripped down sports cruiser now features a new 19” cast aluminium front wheel with single disc brake and ‘skinny’ tyre for the classic chopped hot rod look and a whole host of other updates to give the Speedmaster more attitude and improved accessibility.
At the heart of the Speedmaster is Triumph’s revered 865cc parallel twin engine, a classic configuration favoured by custom builders around the world. With its 270-degree firing order and twin slash cut pipes, the fuel-injected unit delivers a peppy 61PS and 72Nm of torque with a satisfying growl befitting the sporting looks. Ergonomics have been improved for the 2011 model year, with a low 690mm seat height married to new and wider handlebars that deliver a new riding position that feels substantially different to the previous model and which will appeal to a wide variety of riders.
To complete the back to basics street rod look, the 2011 Speedmaster sports blacked out engine cases, a carefully crafted teardrop tank, minimalist mudguards, a 15” cast rear wheel with high profile tyre and a new front headlight design. Two colour options are available for the 2011 Triumph Speedmaster: classic metallic Phantom Black and Cranberry Red, a new colour which is debuting on the Speedmaster. A full range of genuine Triumph accessories are available to accompany the Speedmaster, including a range of saddlebags, screens and alternative seats to meet the preferences of the individual rider.
