In addition, each purchaser of the special edition model will also get an exclusive Speed Triple 15th Anniversary watch as a special gift.
The limited edition 15th Anniversary Speed Triple, offered as a 2010 model, features the unique Phantom Black metallic paint, hand-finished red pinstriped wheels and ‘15th Anniversary Special Edition’ decals on the flyscreen and rear bodywork.
The model is based on the 2009 Speed Triple and comes equipped with a number of additional items as standard, including a colour matched bellypan and flyscreen. Also included is a stylish and comfortable Gel Seat from the Genuine Triumph Accessories range.
“There are very few motorcycles that truly break through and shift design for the entire sport. The Speed Triple is one of those motorcycles,” said Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles.
“The Speed Triple has been refined over the years for even better styling and performance, but the bike has always remained true to the original concept and has always been one of the most recognized streetfighter style motorcycles. It is one of Triumph’s greatest success stories.”
More than 35,000 Speed Triples have been sold since the model was introduced. Weighing in at 189kg and developing 132PS and 105Nm of torque, the 2009 Speed Triple is the lightest and most powerful version to date.
Just 255 units of the 15th Anniversary Speed Triple motorcycles are designated for the U.S., at a price of $12,299, a reasonable $1,000 more than an off-the-rack regular model.
