Triumph Speed Triple: Jack Lilley Special

The hooligan-friendly Triumph Speed Triple is one of the very best streetfighter-style motorcycles around, and is often a favourite candidate for a bit of customization. Triumph’s UK dealer, Jack Lilley has built this one-off special for Speed Triple fans who want a bike that’s a bit different from the usual, everyday Triple.

Lilley’s bike is a 2007-model Speed Triple painted in what Triumph call Caspian blue, and sports white ‘speed stripes’ inspired by the Shelby Cobra. Fork legs have been anodized in gloss black, fork sliders have been coated in low-friction gold nitride, and a ceramic-coated Zard unit replaces the stock exhaust system.

The bike is available in the UK for the equivalent of US$22,000 – almost US$6,500 more than the stock bike! Those interested may call on 01784 420421 for more details.
