Triumph Motorcycles and Breitling are partnering up to bring a limited edition Speed Twin. The duo first announced their partnership back in July 2021, and the partnership has since seen quite a few bikes gracing several Breitling boutiques and locations around the world.
Now, Triumph and Breitling unveiled a new limited-edition Triumph Speed Twin with a matching Breitling timepiece. What sets the limited model apart from the standard Speed Twins is the paint scheme called polychromatic blue, which is said to be color-matched to the original 1951 Thunderbird 6T, a bike that was ridden by none other than Marlon Brando in ‘The Wild One.’
On top of that, you get Triumph’s stellar attention to detail and build quality. Accent paintwork is performed by hand which includes the coach line details from the brand’s master painters at Hinckley. The seat is also upholstered in a perforated black leather material with contrasting stitches, and its analog gauge clusters draw inspiration from the Breitling timepiece that accompanies the bike.
There will only be 270 of these units for the entire world, and all will be individually numbered with certificates of authenticity signed both by the Triumph CEO Nick Bloor and Breitling’s CEO Georges Kern. As for the price of the bike, it’ll retail for $18,300 USD, or around P940,000, but that price is expected to go up should it ever reach our archipelago.
Buying the bike will allow you to put in a special request with Breitling for a matching timepiece called the Top Time. The request must be put in before August 22, 2022, and by doing this you will be able to buy a matching number Breitling timepiece with a matching color to boot.
There will be two versions of the Breitling Top Time Triumph chronograph. One’s reserved for Triumph Speed Twin Breitling owners, while the other is available for everyone else. The limited-edition will feature “a radiant sunray-finished dial,” while the standard version will feature “an opalescent vertically brushed dial.” Owner editions will specifically be made to order.
The time pieces will set you back an additional $5,700 USD on top of the price of the Triumph Speed Twin, which equates to about P300,000. Meanwhile, the reference number available to the public will cost $5,500 USD, or about P290,000.
