Established more than a century ago, TRIUMPH is a British motorbike manufacturer with not only modern models, but also a number of vintage models that recreate the flavour of the past. The word ‘quality’ is the first word that comes to the mind of many enthusiasts when they see TRIUMPH’s motorbikes, whether they are modern or vintage. When a British motorbike, which has always maintained a high level of quality and has a century of history, meets a Swiss watch, which also has a century of history, what kind of beautiful and delicate flavour will be created? Recently, TRIUMPH and the Swiss watch brand BREITLING have given us one of the possible answers to this question with their exquisite quality and craftsmanship.

As mentioned in the title, TRIUMPH and Breitling have teamed up to offer a limited series of special products – the Speed Twin BREITLING Edition by TRIUMPH and the Top Time Chrono by Breitling. Time Chrono by Breitling. Here we will find out what special changes TRIUMPH has applied to this Speed Twin.
First of all, the Breitling Exclusive Edition features an exclusive handmade blue and black colour scheme inspired by the TRUMPH Thunderbird 6T ridden by the famous actor Marlon Brando in the 1953 film “Speed Racer”.
The Centurion Edition is finished in an elegant blue and black paint.

The most obvious difference from the standard version, apart from the paintwork, is the hardware – the Centurion features a higher-end ÖHLINS twin-shock with a gloss black spring. The clutch/panel covers, which are cut from aluminium, are also finished in an exclusive black anodised finish, giving them an understated but present appearance.

The clutch cover and the outer cover of the motor plate have been anodised in black.
In addition to the shock absorbers, paintwork and engine cover, which can be seen and appreciated from a distance, TRIUMPH has also added a number of beautiful details that are more visible to the rider himself – for example, the Breitling logo is painted and embroidered on the fuel tank and saddle respectively, and the instrumentation is modelled on the Breitling co-branded watch.
