Limited Edition 2013 Triumph Speed Triple R “Dark” Revealed
Triumph announced a very limited production run of the 2013 Speed Triple R in a special “Dark” livery for the U.K. market.
The British manufacturer teamed up with custom paint shop 8 Ball to produce 30 units of the Triumph Speed Triple R Dark. The livery is predominantly black with red highlights to match the Speed Triple R’s red frame and pinstriped wheels. Finer details include new “R 1050″ logos and air-brushed Union Jack flags on the fuel tank.
The Dark version includes a color-matched flyscreen and belly pan, both of which are usually available as accessories at a total price of £320 (US$495). The Speed Triple R Dark however is only priced £200 over the regular price of £11,349.
