Triumph Speed Triple R Dark Motorcycle | UK Exclusive

When its original entity filed for bankruptcy protection back is 1983, motorcycle maker Triumph was on the verge of suffering the same fate of other great British manufacturing icons like MG Rover, Jensen Motors, and TVR. Fortunately for the brand’s longtime supporters, the company recovered and in the process gained a new cadre of fans. Following the success of its Daytona 675R “Dark” as well as a “thank you” to its homegrown supporters across Great Britain, Triumph created the Speed Triple R “Dark” Limited Edition. Together with custom paint specialist 8 Ball, Speed Triple R “Dark” features a subtle dark veil over the original scarlet red decor. Each airbrushed by hand and finished with details, like a fluttering Union Jack flag. Only 30 made and priced at around £11,349 GBP, or $17,312 USD, each. Individually numbered, this collector’s edition will only be available through Triumph dealers in Great Britain.
