Triumph unveil Barbour special edition

Published: 22 May 2015

Triumph have unveiled yet another special build, following on from the release earlier today of the Venom. This new street tracker has been built to mark a tie-up between the two world-famous British brands, celebrating the launch of a unique clothing collaboration. The ‘Barbour International Triumph 1 Street Tracker’, or BIT1 for short, is a stripped down flat-track styled Bonneville build completed in-house at Triumph.  

Far from being just a lick of paint, the BIT1 features extensive frame modifications, with all of the rear passenger metal work, pillion pegs, subframe and battery box removed. A bespoke Redmax Speedshop seat was modified to provide the authentic flat-track tail, while suspension duties are handled by custom built K-Tech Razor rear shocks, and the complete replacement of the Bonneville front end with a Street Triple R fork. Slash cut pipes and a conversion to carbs, swapping out the stock EFI system for Keihin 36mm smooth-bores are yet further nods tpo the heritage theme.

Barbour International have customised a jacket exclusively for the collaboration, featuring CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows, authentic four pocket detailing and a signature International Jacket belted waist. Available in both men’s and ladies fit the Triumph Barbour Riding Jacket will be available in Triumph dealerships from August 2015. Sadly the BIT1 is a one-off, and won’t be available at your local dealer. You can see it at Bike Shed London this weekend, May 23-24, though.
