2021 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS Coming on January 26

by Daniel Patrascu from Despite all the troubles of 2020, or thanks to them, the motorcycle world enjoyed a hell of a ride last year. Harley-Davidson had it particularly hard, Ducati rolled like a champ with several high-profile releases, and Triumph, well, the Brits contended to planting the seeds that would make 2021 a year to remember. And for them, it will all start on January 26, when the bike maker will be presenting the new iteration of the Speed Triple 1200 RS, the bad boy of the motorcycle family born all the way back in 1994. The news broke earlier this week thanks to a very short video posted on Youtube to tease the unveiling. “All-new in every dimension the Speed Triple 1200 RS will deliver an absolute revolution in terms of Speed Triple power, performance, handling and technology, for the ultimate performance naked sports ride,” Triumph says about the newcomer. “Join us for the live reveal of the new Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS and be part of the revolution.” The video (attached below) is literally unrevealing from a visual standpoint, showing nothing but a sketchy outline of the bike and a front end shot. What we do get to experience is the sound the bike will make while revved, something we’ll probably hear when customers will finally get to experience it. What to expect, then? Well, if we are to trust both what Triumph is saying but also the way it did things these past few years, you should look forward to the Speed Triple 1200 RS having perhaps the most powerful engine offered for the range since forever, as well as some styling changes meant to differentiate from what came before in the range. At the same time, it should build on the design of

Former home of Triumph Cycles founder up for grabs

by Elis Sandford from The building has been brought back into use. The former home of Triumph Cycles founder Siegfried Bettmann is on the market having been converted into a series of luxury apartments and bungalows. Located in the Stoke Park area of Coventry, the Victorian villa has been transformed as part of a huge development project. The former home was sold by Coventry City Council to property developers three years ago having fallen into disrepair. Since then, it has been restored and now exists as 14 one and two-bedroom apartments and garden bungalows. It is described as being located in a leafy conservation area of the city. According to the developers: “Each property has been individually designed with an emphasis on lifestyle and space. All properties have luxury fully fitted SieMatic kitchens, large living areas, good size bedrooms and fully equipped Porcelanosa bathrooms.” Apartment sizes range from 840 sq ft to 947 sq ft, the bungalows from 430 sq ft to 915 sq ft and the mews range from 431 sq ft to 721 sq ft. All properties come with either one or two parking spaces. Prices range from £180,000 to £360,000 and the Help to Buy Scheme is available for first-time buyers. All properties will be owned on a shared freehold basis. What has been said about the properties? Laura Wilson, New Homes Manager at Loveitts Estate Agents, said: “Witnessing this stunning Victorian villa – notably known as Siegfried Bettmann’s former residence – being restored to its former glory first-hand has been something of a marvel. “Elm Bank’s clear historical significance coupled with its beauty as a property makes it a hugely sought-after location for any home hunter. The combination of the Victorian feel with modern furnishings truly epitomises luxury living – and all are up for

Triumph Trident 660 and Tiger 850 Sport Reach U.S. Shores

by Daniel Patrascu from British bike maker Triumph had a host of high-profile premieres this year. The most recent are the Trident 660, the entry bike in the world of Triple roadsters, and the Tiger 850 Sport, it too an entry-level. Neither is presently available at U.S. dealerships, but since that will change in early 2021, the company thought a promotional tour is in order. Triumph initially planned to show the two models as part of the New Product Tour events it had planned, but the health crisis forced a change – instead of a tour, a so-called sneak peek is offered on the grounds of dealerships across the U.S. “With the cancellation of the motorcycles shows, it was an obvious choice for us to get these in the hands of as many dealerships as possible,” said in a statement Adam VanderVeen, Marketing Director, Triumph Motorcycles America. “I was blown away to learn the strong support of the dealerships, including a handful opting to open on Sundays or Mondays they’d usually be closed just to have an extra day to preview these hot new models.” Two pairs of each bike will be trekking the country, hopping from dealership to dealership for what the company calls “a first-hand look.” The four motorcycles are, according to Triumph, the only units of their respective ranges currently on display anywhere outside of Europe. And no, they’re not available for test rides. The Trident 660 is powered by a whole new breed of the Triple engine that develops 81 PS (80 hp) at 10,250 rpm and 64 Nm (47 lb-ft) peak torque at 6,250 rpm. It is priced at $7,995 and should be available in January. The Tiger 850 Sport packs an 888cc engine rated at 85 PS (84 hp) at 8,500 rpm and

You Can Now Buy Certified Pre-Owned Triumph Motorcycles in the U.S.

by Daniel Patrascu from Going for a pre-owned vehicle, regardless of its type or number of wheels, is always risky business. Despite all the tools the modern world puts at the disposal of the buyers, one could always end up taking home something really faulty. That’s why we have certified pre-owned programs. Generally ran through dealers or the car/bike makers themselves, these initiatives try to put the buyers’ minds at ease by supplying them with all the correct info and checks for a vehicle. British bike maker Triumph has been running such a program on the home continent for a while now, and apparently it was successful enough for the company to decide an expansion on the U.S. market would be in order. As such, starting November 23, the Triumph Certified Pre-Owned Motorcycle Program kicked off. According to Triumph, bikes sold through this program come with a few perks. First, there is the quality check performed by the bike maker’s or its dealer’s personnel. The two-wheelers will thus have a full-service history, but also multi-point inspection and all rectification work, if needed, completed. Then, each one will come with minimum 1-year, unlimited mileage warranty, but also 1-year roadside assistance. Financing for bikes sold this way is also available. This program is good news for those trying to sell as well. Triumph accepts into this program bikes up to 5 years of age from first registration, with a maximum mileage of 25,000 miles (40,000 km). Those involved in major accidents, used for racing, or equipped with non-Triumph hardware will not be accepted. “We are proud to offer a Certified Pre-Owned program, ensuring that customers joining the Triumph family with a pre-owned motorcycle are given the same great product experience and factory-backed assurances as someone buying a brand-new Triumph,” said in

Reimagined Triumph Thruxton 900

by Silvian Secara from The Titan Is Tamarit Motorcycles’ Reimagined Triumph Thruxton 900 You ought to pack your bags, because we’re just about to embark on yet another bespoke adventure! Look, the magicians over at Tamarit Motorcycles are no strangers to the fascinating art of motorcycle customization. Ever since its birth, the enterprise stacked up on a plethora of aftermarket components for countless brands, as well as several bespoke masterpieces that’ll soothe just about any gearhead’s soul. A little while back, we visited the workshop’s portfolio to examine a staggering two-wheeled entity, based on Triumph’s almighty Bonneville. This time around, we’ll be proceeding with a quick analysis of Tamarit’s achievements on a breathtaking Thruxton 900 from Triumph’s range. The overhaul was concluded at the start of 2018. The donor in question is brought to life by an air-cooled DOHC parallel-twin powerplant, with four valves per cylinder head and a healthy displacement of 865cc. It is capable of delivering up to 68 hp at 7,250 revs, along with 53 pound-feet (72 Nm) of monstrous twisting force at around 5,750 rpm. A five-speed transmission feeds this power to a chain final drive. Ultimately, the whole shebang leads to a quarter mile time of 13.2 seconds, while top speed is rated at 115 mph (185 kph). Tamarit kicked things off by removing the bike’s original side panels to make room for their very own custom counterparts. They also went about installing a solid belly pan module and one rugged headlight grille that does a neat job at looking seriously rad. Thruxton’s stock tail section and saddle unit were swapped out in favor of a two-seater quilted leather item, which rests on a one-off loop-style subframe. The seat in question was meticulously upholstered by the Spanish specialists in-house. In terms of performance upgrades,

Triumph gives closer look at upcoming Trident in new images

from Sports bike is undergoing final testing ahead of spring release. Triumph has showcased its upcoming Trident in a series of up-close new images. The Trident, which is set to hit UK dealerships in the spring, is the British bike manufacturer’s latest brand-new motorcycle and is now undergoing final testing at the firm’s Hinckley headquarters ahead of its full reveal in the coming weeks. These new images show high-end Showa suspension and Nissin brakes, as well as Michelin Road 5 tyres. Though no details have been released about the Trident’s engine, Triumph has said that it will be A2 compliant which means it’ll produce a maximum of 94bhp. The Trident is set to become the new entry point to the Triumph range The photos also showcase the Trident’s LED lighting as well as the bike’s combination of retro-inspired and ultra-modern design features. The rear end of the motorcycle has the look of a classic racer, while the cut out tank is a nod to more classic bikes. It’s set to become the new entry point to the Triumph range of motorcycles, sitting under the Street Twin and Street Triple S. Though full prices have yet to be revealed, it’s expected that it will cost under £8,000 when it goes on sale in order to contend with the likes of the Yamaha MT-07. The Trident was first showcased last month as a full concept, though due to the bike’s entirely white paint scheme, it was difficult to make out the finer details of the motorcycle’s design. These photographs signal the end of a four-year programme of development, too. During final testing, engineers will fine-tune the Trident’s characteristics. Triumph is pitching the bike as incorporating a ‘rider friendly chassis’, making the Trident into ‘the first choice for a new generation of

Tamarit Motorcycles’ Custom Triumph Bonneville Is Ready to Steal the Show

by Silvian Secara from This gorgeous thing’s outfit boasts some serious retro vibes. Back in 2015, the motorcycle realm was delighted with the arrival of a new player on the scene. Tamarit Motorcycles debuted with as many as five magnificent projects that served to let everyone know they aren’t messing around. Over the years, the Spanish firm amassed an impressive selection of no less than 52 custom entities. Besides constructing some of the raddest one-off two-wheelers you’ll ever come across, the Elche-based company also prides itself with a delicious inventory that hosts over 170 aftermarket components manufactured in-house. One thing’s for sure; these moto specialists are no amateurs! Their stunning one-off machines guarantee to soothe the soul of even the most pretentious rider out there. In case this stirs your curiosity, Tamarit’s majestic undertakings can all be admired on their social media profiles. But first, let’s take a minute to drool over one such masterpiece, namely a 2008 model in Triumph’s iconic Bonneville lineup that’ll certainly raise your pulse. I’ll have to point out the obvious and say the ‘08 Bonneville is one hell of a donor. It is powered by a vicious DOHC parallel-twin behemoth, with a generous compression ratio of 9.2:1 and a truly humungous displacement of 865cc. At around 7,200 rpm, this fiendish piece of air-cooled machinery is capable of producing up to 66 bhp, along with a feral torque output of 52 pound-feet (70 Nm) at 6,000 revs. A five-speed gearbox transmits the engine’s unholy force to Bonnie’s 17-inch multi-spoked rear wheel by means of a chain final drive. The powertrain is hugged by a tubular steel cradle frame, which rests on a set of 41 mm (1.61 inches) forks at the front, coupled with fully-adjustable dual shock absorbers and a double-sided swingarm on the
