Bike of the day: Triumph Speed Triple 1050

Published: 02 July 2017

Naked is fun, this Triumph Speed Triple will convince you of that which is why it’s today’s bike of the day.

Seller says

“This is an absolutely lovely bike, my pride and joy but baby due and lack of use forces sale. Comes with ABS, Fly Screen, Bar End Mirrors, USB Charger, Belly Pan, R&G Crash Bungs, Rear Hugger, Seat Cowl, Twin Arrow Exhausts, Spare Battery, Two Keys, Datatool Alarm and was MOT'd in April with no advisories. Only done 200 miles since. Service History. Always garaged. Never taken on track.” 

MCN says

“For 2011 the Speed Triple got an all-new chassis package, frame and swingarm that changed MCN’s favourite big-bore naked bike into a thoroughly modern big-bore naked bike. Changing the round ‘bug-eyed’ glass and chrome twin headlights for modern plastic items could have gone so badly wrong for Triumph. After all, changing something so iconic can be likened to downgrading the M1 to 45mph maximum speed limit. Thankfully Triumph got it spot on.”
