Triumph have announced a new special edition of the Speed Triple R – the ‘Dark.’ The bike has been created in collaboration with custom paint shop, 8 Ball, and only 30 units of the Speed Triple R Dark will be produced. Technical specifications remain unchanged though the Dark will come with a colour-matched belly pan and fly screen as standard.
“Employing the very latest creative paint shop techniques, Triumph has created a striking crystal midnight black veil effect over bright scarlet red. The bike’s livery is airbrushed in intense white with a smoky aged appearance. Both sides of the tank carry a hand airbrushed union flag adding to the craftsmanship and allure of the bike,” says a press release from Triumph.
The new Speed Triple R Dark will be available at Triumph dealerships from next week and the bike is priced at £11,549 OTR.
