Triumph Debuts Bonneville Sixty, Speed Triple SE At EICMA Bike Show

Tony O'Kane | Nov 10, 2009

ALONGSIDE ITS recently-launched Rocket III Roadster, Triumph has unveiled two new special-edition models at the 2009 EICMA bike show in Milan, Italy.

The Speed Triple SE (above) joined the Rocket III Roadster on the Triumph show stand, flaunting new two-tone paintwork and an upgraded suspension system.

Triumph also took the wraps off the limited-edition Bonneville Sixty at EICMA, which comes in a retro-inspired two-tone colour scheme that harks back to the classic 1960 Bonneville T120.


While the Bonneville Sixty's enhancements are limited to its Meriden Blue-on-Caspian Blue paint (above) and 650-unit limited production run, the Triumph Speed Triple SE comes with upgraded suspension specs.

Things down below have been revised with new damper internals and a five percent softer rear spring rate, improving ride comfort and reducing fork-dive during hard braking.

The Speed Triple's 95kW 1050cc three-cylinder engine carries over unchanged.


In addition to the Rocket III Roadster, Speed Triple SE and Bonneville Sixty, Triumph announced at EICMA the beginning of a new partnership between it and suspension specialists Ohlins.

Ohlins will now supply Triumph with a range of accessory rear suspension units for its Urban Sports range, which includes the Daytona 675, Street Triple, Speed Triple and Tiger.
