Following the successes of the 2022 Triumph Bonneville Gold Line collection, which showcased the hand-painted gold lining skills of Triumph’s paint shop, and the 2023 Chrome Line editions, which celebrated the company’s state-of-the-art chrome-detailing facility, Triumph has returned the spotlight to the paint shop with the 2024 Triumph Stealth Edition motorcycles.
The new custom-style paint finish will make its debut on eight of Triumph’s Modern Classics and will be available for one year only. Each model features its own unique tank design that showcases a dramatic hand-painted finish that intensifies in the light to reveal vivid color.
The process starts with a base layer of mirror-finish metallic Silver Ice applied to each tank, followed by a precisely placed dark-to-light Sapphire Black graphite vignette. Finally, a translucent tinted lacquer is applied in multiple layers to create the topcoat. The transition from dark tinted graphite to vibrant color springs to life when exposed to light, varying in hue and tone under different conditions and appearing different from every angle.
During the unveiling of the Triumph Stealth Edition bikes, James Wood, Triumph’s global marketing manager, said the limited edition models have “a really dark and dramatic aesthetic that suits these bikes really, really well.”
Wood continued to say that because of the way the color is applied, “the finish is really deep and rich, intensified and accentuated by changing lighting conditions, all of which enhances that timeless design DNA and adds a great contemporary twist. And because the entire paint process is completed by hand, no two motorcycles are the same.”
The eight Modern Classics that will feature the Triumph Stealth Edition custom paint work include the Bonneville Speedmaster in red, the stripped-back Bobber in purple, the T100 and T120 in blue, the Speed Twin 1200 in red, the Speed Twin 900 in green, the Scrambler 900 in orange, and finally, the T120 Black in a matte silver finish.
“This is a premium paint effect you’d normally associate with custom work,” Wood said. “I know it’s a very well-used cliche, but you really do have to see these in order to appreciate them in full.”
Triumph dealers are taking orders now, with bikes expected to be in dealers in spring of 2024. For more information, read the press details from Triumph below.
