The 2023 Triumph Speed Twin Breitling is born from a shared philosophy of bold and original design, the beautiful Triumph Breitling Limited Edition sets a new precedent for specification, style, and exclusivity. Limited to 270 worldwide, celebrating its 270-degree crank parallel twin, each bike is unique, featuring an individually numbered handlebar clamp and fully adjustable Öhlins piggy-back twin rear suspension.

To enhance this special edition’s reputation with motorcyclists, the 2023 Triumph Speed Twin Breitling gets Öhlins shocks. The twin shocks are fully adjustable, have piggyback reservoirs, black springs, and the shocks are unique to this motorcycle. Marzocchi continues to supply the inverted fork.

The Polychromatic Blue paint job is inspired by the 1951 Triumph 6T Thunderbird—you know, Brando’s iconic motorcycle in The Wild One. Triumph started with a preserved color chip from the original Thunderbird, ran it through a spectrograph, and mixed up a custom batch of paint. The tank is hand-masked, with Triumph paint team artist Gary Devine adding the hand-painted detailing.

The 2023 Triumph Speed Twin Breitling Limited Edition has a perforated leather seat. The black seat gets contrasting gray stitching around the perimeter, evoking the matching Breitling Top Time Triumph chronograph available as an option to buyers—more on that later. Oh, and don’t miss the scripted “B” embroidered distinctive Breitling branding on the tuck-and-roll seat with black stitching doing its job unobtrusively.

Not surprisingly, the analog-style clocks have styling cues from the Breitling Top Triumph chronograph. There are still twin LCD displays for providing essential technical information.

Machined billet aluminum adds to the well-appointed appearance of the Breitling Speed Twin. The tastefully dark-anodized badges on the clutch cover and alternator are subtle, reminding you that it’s the details that matter.

There will be 270 examples of the 2023 Triumph Speed Twin Breitling Limited Edition. The handlebar clamp is numbered, and the buyer gets a certificate of authenticity signed by Triumph Motorcycles CEO Nic Bloor and Breitling CEO Georges Kern. The number 270 was selected to pay homage to the vertical twin’s 270-degree crank.

To show its appreciation to purchasers of the Breitling Speed Twin, the watch company is offering the opportunity to buy a Breitling Top Time Triumph chronograph. Buyers taking advantage of the proposition will take possession of a watch numbered to match the purchased motorcycle. The option is available exclusively to the original buyer and must be exercised by August 22, 2022.

The 2023 Triumph Speed Twin Breitling Limited Edition’s MSRP is a $5800 premium over the standard Speed Twin. The list price is $18,300.
