A labour of love, and a good career move as well, the Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin Concept is the what-if result of two young UK designers, who freed the classic Triumph Bonneville from the continuing retro look demanded by its fans. The Bonneville was originally launched in 1959 and is still in production—while still in school, Roy Norton and Tom Kasher began re-imagining the bike’s evolution along a more steadily modern path. They secured the support of Triumph, along with a production frame, and heavily modified their way to their ultimate Speed Twin: 865cc engine, Thruxton brakes, unique gauges and levers, and girder forks. British bikewear history is acknowledged with seat and grips covered in Barbour fabric. The concept build was eventually finished at UK motorcycle design specialists, Xenophya Design, where the duo now work. The Speed Twin is not slated for production, but may make it onto the road as a custom job. Nice!
