– 2004 Triumph Speed Four
Drawn from the same athletic gene pool as the Daytona 600, but with something more than a little special added all of its own, the stunning Speed Four proves that it is all in the mix. And this mix, with its raucous engine, surgically precise handling, jaw-dropping styling and outrageous lines, sets the Speed Four a class apart.
Completely redefining how a ‘naked’ 600cc machine should perform, the Speed Four is a highly specified motorcycle with a sophisticated 599cc, DOHC, sixteen-valve, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder engine. Its cam profiles and EFI system are specifically designed to give a broad spread of mid-range torque and driveability. The slick six-speed gearbox allows maximum use of the engine’s output as does the Speed 4’s chassis.
The sweet-revving engine is housed in a sharp-handling aluminium frame, which blesses the Speed Four with razor-sharp and accurate steering plus plenty of ground clearance. Fully adjustable suspension front and rear provides a wide range of set-up options and up front a pair of massively powerful four-piston calipers clamp on 310mm floating discs. The rear wheel features a 220mm disc and lightweight single piston caliper.
The Speed Four then, combines near supersports performance with a truly unique look and style. From its distinctive pair of chromed headlights and compact instrument cluster, nestling behind the saucy little fly screen, to the twin air scoops and tasteful satin black finish on the frame, engine and swingarm, the Speed Four stands out. A varied choice of paint options – from understated Jet Black to retina-popping Roulette Green – are joined in 2004 by gorgeous Racing Yellow.
