Bukit Tinggi, Pahang (March 3, 2018) -- Triumph Motorcycles today expanded and
updated its model line-up in Malaysia with the introduction of eight new models; the new
Bonneville Bobber Black, new Speedmaster, and the eagerly awaited new Tiger 800 range
comprising six variants.

Triumph, which is officially imported by Motoradic Sdn Bhd and distributed in Malaysia by
Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd, introduced the new models at a glamorous evening event in Bukit
Tinggi, Pahang, attended by 350 guests from the Triumph motorcycle club officially known
as the RatPack, guests and members of the media.

“We wanted to celebrate the launch of the new bikes amongst people who have stood by the
brand through the years, from the very first customer to the one who has just bought his
Triumph and is now a member of the RatPack. We wanted these bikes to be welcomed by
the people who are most passionate about the brand,” said Dato’ Razak al-Malique, Chief
Executive Officer of Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd.

All four new Triumph motorcycles are now available for sale in Malaysia with prices starting
from RM79,900 for the Bonneville Bobber Black and the Bonneville Speedmaster. The full
range of the Triumph Tiger 800 family; Tiger 800 XR, XRx, XRx Low, XRT, XCx, XCa - will
be available with prices starting from RM56,900 up to RM81,900. All bikes come with a two-
year unlimited mileage warranty.

The new Bonneville Bobber Black builds on Triumph’s ultra-successful Bonneville Bobber
model, which is currently the best-selling Triumph motorcycle in the world. The Bobber Black
features a “fat” 16-inch front wheel as compared to the 19-inch wheels on the standard
Bobber. It also comes with chunkier 47mm Showa front forks (vs 41mm on the Bobber), full
LED headlights with new distinctive daytime running lights and a single button cruise control
as standard feature.

Speaking about the new addition to the Bonneville Bobber family, Dato’ Razak said, “The
Bonneville Bobber has taken the Triumph brand to unprecedented heights. It is a bike that
appeals to just about anyone, and is perfectly suited for those who prefer a touch of classic
bobber styling. And now the Bobber Black is set to complement the Bonneville Bobber
package with its bold custom style, elegant engineering and more importantly, a thrilling hot
rod ride and sound.”

The Bonneville Speedmaster on the other hand works on the classic DNA of the Bonneville
family and blends it with the Bobber’s unique attitude but with practicality and versatility. It
offers more laidback riding ergonomics with swept back beach bars, twin and single seat set
up whereas the Bobber is a strict single seater.

It also comes with forward set foot pegs, 16-inch wire spoked wheels and a larger 12-litre
fuel tank for increased range, which makes the Speedmaster ideal for long distance cruising.
Powering the Speedmaster is Triumph’s critically acclaimed 1200cc High Torque parallel-
twin engine with an even higher torque engine tune of the Bobber. Peak torque is rated at
106Nm at 4,000rpm - a 42% increase from the 2015 Triumph Speedmaster and 10% more
than the current generation Bonneville T120. Horsepower is rated at 77PS and is transferred
through a slick shifting six-speed gearbox. Peak power output is up 25% on the 2015
Speedmaster, and 10% on the Bonneville T120.

“The Bonneville Speedmaster provides a level of comfort, practicality and versatility to the
otherwise very capable Bonneville family. It is perfectly suited to those who want a dash of
classic styling to their touring machine, or for those who wish to add pillion versatility to their
ride. The Speedmaster brings a new dimension to the Bonneville family with a more classic
British custom cruiser laid back style,” said Dato’ Razak during his speech at the launch of
the four new motorcycles.

Completing the latest range of Triumph motorcycles in Malaysia are two of the best-loved
and most critically acclaimed motorcycles ever - the brand new, off-road hungry Tiger 800
XCx, and the road-focused Tiger 800 XRx. Both bikes feature more than 200 upgrades to
the chassis and engine, and offer a more responsive and optimised 800cc, triple-cylinder
engine with a peak power output of 95PS. The gearing too has been reworked and now
features a shorter first gear ratio that enables enhanced off-road traction, low-speed
manoeuvrability and improved acceleration. Both the XCx and the XRx also offer six riding
modes including a new “Off Road Pro” riding mode.

Both the Tiger 800 XCx and XRx are fitted with a new adjustable full colour TFT instrument
cluster, new signature LED lighting, updated cruise control, a five-position adjustable screen,
high-specification Brembo front brakes, new suspension configurations, handlebar-mounted
switch cubes with elegant backlit buttons, enhanced chassis and new premium bodywork.
However, even with the updated comforts and technologies, both new motorcycles retain the
trademark handling and category-defining core technologies that have come to be the very
foundation of this Tiger’s riding experience. All the essential adventure standards have been
retained with ABS, traction control, ride-by- wire throttle, cruise control, heated seats and
grips on some models, power sockets and a two-position seat height (810-830mm for the
XRx, 840-860mm on the XCx).

“The Triumph Tiger 800 XCx and XRx have come to be some of the most successful
adventure bikes in in their respective segments. Both bikes are very easy to ride, offer great
control and comfort, and now have been updated to offer even more technology improving
on the now infamous Tiger triple engine spirit,” said Dato’ Razak about both the new Tiger’s.
