U.S. Triumph dealers will begin displaying the new models May 1. The Bonneville SE will retail for $7,999, the Speed Triple SE for $13,399.
The Bonneville SE, with its characteristic 865cc engine, retro chrome styling and cast aluminium wheels, boasts an array of enhancements. First and foremost is a red frame and a matte-black-and-Cranberry Red paint scheme.
Other styling changes: The front end gets new front indicators and headlight (like the Thruxton), while the rear end sees the addition of a black pillion grab rail and “bash” plate. The Bonneville SE’s seat has new stitching and vinyl covering. Contemporary black mirrors complete the new look.
The Special Edition Speed Triple is also based on the current model, powered by Triumph’s 1050cc three-cylinder engine. Boasting a blue frame and swingarm, the Speed Triple SE comes in matte graphite with twin matte-blue decals.
The special edition gets the lightweight treatment with carbon fiber front mudguard, side pods, tank cover panel and inner radiator panels. The color-matched fly screen, belly pan and seat cowl all come as standard, as well as finishing details such as a rubber tank pad and clear rear light. A new-styled clutch, alternator and sprocket cover add to the makeover.
Finishing the look are blue wheel pinstripes, new-styled mirrors and black silencer heat shields, handlebars and clamps.
