Triumph Bonneville and Speed Triple Special Edition

2013 Triumph Speed Triple SE.
Triumph Motorcycles has launched two Special Edition SE models of its iconic Bonneville and Speed Triple bikes.

The new Special Edition Bonneville – with its characteristic 865cc engine, retro chrome styling and cast aluminium wheels – boasts an array of enhancements to create a hugely distinctive bike. Whilst the funky red frame and stunning paint job immediately catches the eye, there is a wealth of other changes styling the bike.

The front end gets new front indicators and headlight mounts (as per the Thruxton), whilst the rear end sees the addition of a black pillion grab rail and ‘bash’ plate. Contemporary black mirrors complete the new look.

However, it is the red frame and Matt Black and Cranberry Red colour scheme which really grabs the attention. Not to be outdone, and with an eye on function and fashion, the Bonneville SE proudly sports a unique seat design comprising new stitching and vinyl covering.

The Special Edition Speed Triple is also based on the current model, powered by Triumph’s charismatic 1050cc three cylinder engine. Boasting a distinctive blue frame and swingarm, the Speed Triple SE comes in either matt graphite with twin matt blue decals or crystal white with twin gloss blue decals.

The special edition gets the lightweight treatment with carbon fibre front mudguard side pods, tank cover panel and inner radiator panels. Colour-matched fly screen, belly pan and seat cowl all come as standard, as well as neat finishing details such as a rubber tank pad and clear rear light. A new styled clutch, alternator and sprocket cover further enhances its distinctive makeover.

Finishing the dynamic look are blue wheel pinstripes, while new black mirrors, silencer heat shields, handlebars and yokes complete the aesthetics.

Both new machines will be available via the Triumph dealer network at a date to be confirmed. The Bonneville SE is priced at just $12,990 available March whilst the Speed Triple SE will retail at $18,190 arriving late April.
