A NEW HOPE FOR HINCKLEY
Before the Speed Triple, Hinckley Triumphs were worthy and a bit dull. With this bike the reborn firm found their mojo and they haven't looked back.
Nakeds, ie de-fairinged sportsbikes, didn’t really exist before the Speedie. Hinckley’s handsomest changed all that.
THE SPEED TRIPLE CUP
One of the better one-make racing series did Speedie sales no harm. And, yes, that is Ron Haslam (number 19).
TRIUMPH’S STREET TRIPLE
The success of the big Speedie led a smaller version: first the Tt600-based Speed Four before finally the 675 Street Triple.
