Triumph Motorcycle Ltd. has built the last of its four-cylinder motorcycles and will limited future production to triple-cylinder engines.
“The couple of hundred 2006 model year Speed Fours that we’ve brought in are already spoken for, and those represented the last four-cylinder bikes we’re ever going to make,” Triumph USA’s Todd Andersen recently told Powersports Business.
As if to prove the point, Triumph led the 2006 model year launch with the introduction of the Daytona 675 (MSRP $8,999), a bike that sits as the lone three-cylinder in a middleweight sport market dominated by inline fours.
