Triumph Goes Special Edition Crazy for 2010 With Bored-Out Thunderbird, Dressed Up Daytona 675, and More

By February 23, 2010

Follow me on:

2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1700I've had Triumph on the brain lately-- not only because I just picked up the new long term Bonneville SE tester (which you'll be reading about before week's end real soon), but also since they just announced a slew of limited edition 2010 bikes. First up: a "big bore" version of the Thunderbird, dubbed the Thunderbird 1700. The new cruiser might satisfy riders who envy the displacement enhanced Rocket III; its 1,700cc (104 cubic inch) powerplant is 100cc bigger than the regular 'Bird, and boosts horsepower from 85 to 99. The bike, seen here in its exclusive Phantom Red Haze paint scheme, will be priced at $14,799.

2010 Triumph Daytona 675 SEAlso new-for-2010 is another iteration of the Daytona 675 SE, which takes last year's Pearl White bodywork over Sparkle Blue chassis and adds new graphics and carbon fiber trim-- quite the departure from the black and gold '08 Daytona 675 SE I tested back in the day. The new Daytona 675 SE comes in at $10,299.

Other special edition offerings include a touring-oriented Thunderbird SE ($14,999), a two-tone blue Bonneville 60 ($8,999), a blacked-out Bonneville T100 Black ($8,599), and a red with white-striped, seat cowl and flyscreen-equipped Speed Triple SE ($11,299.)

You'll be able to view every 2010 bike when I post a new buyer's guide, but in the meantime here's the 2009 Triumph lineup.

Did you get a chance to see the limited edition Bonneville with the red frame? It was pretty snazzy.
