Alongside the long-awaited brand new Tiger 1050, Triumph Motorcycles also unveiled some significant changes to several existing models at the North American dealer conference last weekend.

The ever-popular Triumph Bonneville and Bonneville Black gain an extra 75cc for 2007, taking the engine to an energetic 865cc, while the stylish models’ looks are further enhanced by a sophisticated black engine finish, capped with a polished cover. The 2007 Bonneville is available now in Jet Black, Goodwood Green and Aluminum Silver, while the Bonneville Black, as the name suggests, is available in Jet Black only with black engine covers.

The Triumph America, renowned for its British take on the cruiser concept, sports a host of changes that improve both its individual look and performance. An increased engine capacity to 865cc gives an even easier drive without losing any character, while a plusher pillion seat has been added to allow travel in comfort. Further improvements to this model include brand new 12-spoke cast wheels and four rich new paint schemes, enhancing this popular, easy-going cruiser yet further.

While the Speedmaster’s punchy 865cc engine is essentially unchanged, the evocative loping exhaust note now vents through a pair of deep-chromed slash-cut silencers. Receiving similar attention to the America, the Speedmaster gains brand new wheels and restyled pillion footrest hangers, as well as four new paint schemes. These schemes underscore the model’s dark, brooding lines, ensuring that the Speedmaster remains a standout middleweight cruiser from every angle.

Both the Triumph America and Speedmaster will be available from December 2006.

Triumph has added a special edition to the Rocket Family for the upcoming season. The Rocket III Classic Tourer adds a package of must-have touring accessories to the Rocket III Classic at a special price. The accessories include a screen, bags, sissy-bar and pad, are valued at almost $2,000, but the Tourer is priced only $700 more than the standard Rocket III Classic. The Tourer features 3 unique paint schemes and is distinguished from the standard Classic by its silver engine.

Triumph’s Sprint ST, which has come to represent the very pinnacle of sports touring refinement, has received a number of thoughtful enhancements. The seat has been re-profiled for added comfort and the handlebars have also been altered. Now higher and further back, they have been tailored to give a more relaxed riding position. The high screen, which was previously available as an accessory option also now comes fitted as standard, as do Triumph’s latest generation panniers. These factory-designed, specialist-made panniers are fully waterproof, durable and easy-to-fit yet quickly detachable, operating via a single key which also works for the ignition.

Although the engine is unchanged, for good reason, the 2007 Sprint ST comes with Triumph’s second generation Keihin Engine Control Unit, with more sophisticated mapping for quicker starting, cleaner running and better fuel economy.

Two new color options join Caspian Blue in 2007, Phantom Black and Tornado Red. All three are available for both the standard and popular ABS models.

The Sprint ST has proved itself a class mover – in every sense – and is now even better. Available from January 2007, it remains undoubtedly the shrewd choice of any rider looking for a versatile, all-round motorcycle with a sporting edge and real sense of style.

The Rocket III, Rocket III Classic, Bonneville T100, Thruxton, Scrambler, Speed Triple, Sprint ST and Daytona 675 all continue into 2007 with a number of minor updates and a whole host of new colors, including the striking Roulette Green and Silver Scrambler and the racy Tornado Red Thruxton.
