2008 Triumph Speedmaster

A standout middleweight cruiser.

With its dark, brooding lines and a pared-down hot-rod essence, the Speedmaster is a standout middleweight cruiser from every angle. Punchy 865cc engine, mean looks and souped-up chassis – the Speedmaster is the very essence of an old-school street-rod, packing performance and style into one very individual motorcycle.

The Cruiser Range – Performance and looks – no compromise. Triumph cruisers deliver performance with a balance that revels in every sweeping curve. Powered by torquey twin and triple engines that feel and sound like no other. Individual bikes for riders with an individual spirit – covered in chrome and infused with Triumph’s original and authentic styling, they are ready for you to customize with Genuine Triumph Accessories.
