I pulled the trigger today and placed a deposit on the new 2018 Speedmaster. Phantom Black and Fusion White.
First one for my dealer but Triumph has pre-orders in the US for 28 already.
Expected delivery date is late February or early March

Going to be a long winter, but it gives be time to sell a few things and raise some capital.




Congrats! What does that mean for the current stable?




Commander is going, darn I wish I could keep all my toys. Now where is that lottery ticket I just purchased

Congratulations Mike! That is the color I like the best. It reminds me of the '02 TBA black and silver paint scheme. Are you going to trick it out for touring?

Thanks, I've got a few ideas in mind, so yeah I'll add some personal touches. Probably have to think outside the box a bit for touring luggage with this design.

I'm thinking the sissy bar and rack would work w my Iron Rider luggage. The Triumph windscreen for the new SM is pretty ugly though, IMO. The touring seat looks pretty cushy though. But I would probably not pre-order one. I'd want to at least sit on it first.

I agree Paul that windshield is horrendous. First thing I noticed. They have a seat option like the Commander, but in the picture I saw it looked a bit thin. What luggage are you referring to ? Got a link

I noticed that the wheelbase is 6 inches shorter than the older models. There is a pic on the UK site of a couple 2 up riding and the bike looks tiny. I'm 6 feet tall and one of the things I like about the older models is it is a full size motorcycle. When my bike is parked next to my buddies Softails and Dynas my 2006 Speedmaster looks the same size , it does not look small like the bobber does or like how a Sportster does.
