Triumph is reverting to chrome, but why?

October 26, 2022

It is not all gold that shines, no indeed, but it is chrome. Triumph releases limited edition Chrome Editions of all its models. This Triumph Chrome Collection is inspired by iconic primal versions, such as the 1937 Speed Twin with its chromed tank and the 1960s Trident. An ode to the brand’s history, then, and it produces darned fine motorcycles that arouse a certain degree of greed.

The Triumph Chrome Collection includes ten models. They are only available in limited edition for one year. It is Triumph’s already classically styled motorcycles in particular that undergo this special chrome treatment. These are the models with the upright twin engine and the Triumph Rocket 3 variants with the huge three-cylinder block of 2.5-liter displacement.

2. Triumph Speed Twin 900 Chrome Edition
