Destination dealer: Ongar Motorcycles
Triumph has taken its brilliant Speed Triple and made it even better with the launch of the Speed Triple R. The £11,299 bike has already made the front page of MCN and now you can see it in the metal at Essex-based Triumph dealer Ongar Motorcycles.
Triumph have established themselves as the leading brand of motorcycles in the UK. The strength of Triumph is rideability, durability and longevity. The triple engine offers a truly satisfying ride and the bikes hold their value superbly, too.
Ongar Motorcycles have been selling and servicing Triumphs since day one and now have 21 years of working with the marque. The Essex-based dealer runs a full range of demo bikes – so if you are in the market for a new Triumph you should make Ongar your first destination. It’s a great place to experience the brand first hand.
Along with the new Tiger Explorer 1200, the new Speed Triple R is set to be a landmark model for 2012. For an extra £2500 over the standard Speed Triple (£8799) you get Ohlins suspension, lightweight forged aluminium wheels, Brembo monobloc brakes, a host of cosmetic goodies and a 2kg reduction in weight. If you are planning a track day, this bike will be hard to beat.
