After an hour of riding, my wrists and forearms were quite sore. The Speedmaster is a tough looking, no-nonsense cruiser that's brimming with attitude. With blacked out engine cases, slash cut pipes and cast black wheels with polished rims, the Speedmaster embraces the attitude of the hot rod motorcycles of 60's. As a hot-rodded 'Factory Custom', the Speedmaster proves the ethos of less is more, and minimalism is key to the bike's harder edge. Stable handling with good feel made the sweepers a lot of fun. Also, the forks have a new dual-rate spring, as well a top-out spring to not only offer a brilliant ride, but also deal with the extra weight.

The rev-counter is mounted discretely on the fuel tank nacelle, the large round white-faced speedo perches cleanly in the rider's line of sight on its top-yoke mounting.

With its punchy 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.

Blackout touches start at the fork sliders and encompass the rims, tripletree, headlight can, handlebars, mirrors, rear fender struts and exhaust system, for quite a bit more achromatic treatment than the Speedmaster that carries a tasteful amount of chrome mixed in with the black. We have a huge range of English made classic motorcycle seats as well as some budget foreign made options. The pillion seat, along with chrome grab rail can also be easily removed to create a clean single seat set-up and silhouette.

It deals with heavy braking situations, sporty riding, and the casual urban crawl in equally commendable fashion. Plus, if the Speedmaster's bare bones want a little more flesh on them, the ever-expanding Triumph accessory range features an array of bolt-ons specifically designed to lend even more appeal and individuality. It'll appeal to both the boomers who are buying more of the motorcycles these days and younger cats fond of looking back to the future with classic-looking bikes, straight razors, snuff and vinyl. The turns on the east side of the mountain were less tight and opened up more towards the bottom. The Speedmaster, though, adds forward mounted pegs and the ability to carry a passenger.
