TRIUMPHS GET A SPLASH OF COLOUR

carry over , Triumph has upped the ante with some cool new colour options . The Tiger 900 Rally gets a new hue in the form of Sandstorm , a khaki base that works well with the adventure bike ’ s goals of getting out and dirty . For the more roadoriented GT models , Caspian Blue joins the ranks as an attractive option . Over in the Roadsters , the Speed Triple and Trident gain the very bight Matte Baja Orange , which not only grabs eyeballs with its bright pallet , it won ’ t look out of place outside the Tui brewery in Mangatainoka at a park up day . Over in the Rocket corner , the largest displacement production motorcycle in the world also gets some shiny new colour for 2023 . The popular GT model ( which boasts pillion comfort from the factory floor ) adds Carnival Red and Sapphire Black schemes to its repertoire while the more racy R model gets a Matt Silver Ice option . While Triumph is still offering variations of its more traditional blacks and silvers , we ’ re pleased to see some real colour adorning its machines . Matt Carbon Black and Carbon Black join the Street Triple lineup . While the bright new colours might not be everyone ’ s cup of tea , they ’ ll definitely do the job of getting bikes noticed , whether they ’ re standing still or overtaking traffic .
