Triumph Announce New Bike Launches
Visitors to this year’s Carole Nash Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show at the RDS in Dublin are in for a special treat — with three exciting new Triumph motorcycles on view in Ireland for the first time.
Triumph announced today that Irish motorcyclists can look forward to seeing the Bonneville Bobber, Street Triple 765 and Street Scrambler models for the first time on these shores. The Street Triple 765 was only unveiled on January 10th and this will be time it has featured at a Motorbike Show anywhere in the world.
The Triumph launches will be one of the many highlights at the show, and demonstrates the prestige which major manufacturers attach to the Irish event.
Jeff Murphy, Managing Director, Dublin Triumph, Rosso Ducati & Dublin Harley Davidson, said: “We are very excited about the Carole Nash Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show this year as we will be launching a host of new bikes across all our brands. For us this is the ideal platform to unveil so many brand new models to a huge gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts. We are particularly excited to be showcasing the Street Triple at the show. It will be the first time in the world that the public at a motorcycle event will get to see the bike in the flesh.
“In addition we have no doubt that the Triumph Bobber will be a massive draw as well. With so many accessories available to customise it to how the rider wants it, it is a dream bike for any motorcyclist who want to stand out from the crowd. In fact, I believe that outside of England, where the bike is manufactured, this is only the second time this motorcycle will have been on view to the general public before it goes out to be showcased across the rest of the world.”
The Triumph Bonneville Bobber can trace its heritage back to the 1930s. The newest version keeps up the tradition of those early bikes, boasting clean lines and low stance, single seat, wide flat bars, minimal bodywork and headlight, sculpted tank, wire-spoked wheels, with wide rear wheel and that all important hard tail look. An all-new chassis, suspension and frame deliver a supremely confident, dynamic and comfortable ride.
Triumph has also improved the engine on the new model by taking its 1200cc high-torque engine and upgrading its electronic and adding a new dual airbox/filter design which enables it to produce more torque and power down low, when compared to its immediate predecessor the Bonneville T120. The new Bonneville Bobber has a 27-inch seat height, 2.4-gallon fuel tank, 503-pound dry weight, is available in Jet Black, Ironstone (gray), Morello Red, and Competition Green and Frozen Silver. The price will be announced at the show.
Ruth Lemass, event organiser stated, “The Show is shaping up to be one of the best yet. By all indications, we will be launching more new bike models to the public that have not been seen in Ireland, than ever before. The fact that Jeff will be showcasing some bikes to our visitors ahead of the rest of the motorcycling world is a major ‘Triumph’ for the show!”
Entering what is commonly known among the motorcycle fraternity as the “Naked Class”, the all-new 2017 Street Triple line up caters for anyone looking for an everyday ride or a full-on track experience. With three options available, the new Street Triple S, R and RS, each come with their own unique tailor-made level of power, performance, technology and suspension.
With a new higher capacity ‘Daytona’ derived 765cc triple engine, the motorcycles provide more power, performance and torque — delivering up to 123PS peak power at 11,700 rpm, an increase of 16% on the previous generation. This is combined with state-of-the-art technology, sharper styling, a more aggressive and athletic poise and the highest specification suspension, chassis and tyres ever. The motorbikes come in their various colours depending on the model: Street Triple S is available in Diablo Red or Phantom Black (Metallic), the Street Triple R in Jet Black (Gloss), Matt Aluminium Silver or Crystal White and the Street Triple RS comes in Matt Silver Ice or Phantom Black (Metallic)
