What happens when one of the coolest bike brands hooks up with one of the coolest watch brands? Well, in the case of Triumph and Breitling, you get one sweet ride. Well, technically, 270 sweet rides.

The storied British motorcycle manufacturer has teamed up again with the Swiss luxury watchmaker for their latest collaboration: 270 limited-edition versions of the Speed Triple 1200 RR; with each bike offering the chance to purchase a matching Triumph Owners Exclusive watch made by Breiting.

Let’s tackle the bike first. This new edition is the pinnacle of Triumph’s contemporary Speed Triple range, first released last year.

Known for its exhilarating performance, the Speed Triple 1200 RR won’t fail to impress thanks to its Öhlins semi-active suspension, track-derived specification, and beautifully crafted cockpit.

This new Limited Edition features a bespoke paint scheme with premium gold hand-painted detailing, black leather seat with French stitching, exclusive high-specification Akrapovič silencer and ultra-light carbon fibre parts.

Breitling’s presence is in the details: a custom Breitling start screen, the Breitling logo laser-etched onto the machined rear-wheel finisher, and a distinct gold Breitling badge on the tank are all markers of the partnership.

Owners of the new motorcycle will also have the unique opportunity to purchase a made-to-order Triumph Owners Exclusive watch including a caseback engraved with their motorcycle’s unique number, also inscribed on the top yoke of the bike.

The watch itself is Breitling’s Chronomat B01 42 Triumph, finished in titanium and 18k red gold, with an anthracite dial and brown leather strap.

The watch’s styling echoes the dark shades of the motorcycle, while its golden details pay homage to the Speed Triple 1200 RR’s class-leading Öhlins front forks.

This new iteration is perfectly complemented by a perforated brown leather strap, capturing the essence of freedom on the open road.

Originally designed for the Italian aerobatics team Frecce Tricolori in 1983, the Chronomat was a key watch in bucking the quartz trend and helping reinstate mechanical chronographs to their former prominence.

It’s this spirit of bold innovation that links both these brands. Triumph CEO Nick Bloor says, “Teaming up with Breitling, we’ve united two worlds, delivering our shared passions for precision, speed, and impeccable style.”

“The Chronomat and the Speed Triple 1200 RR exemplify our joint devotion to the highest standards of design and performance,” added Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling. “With Triumph, we share a rugged spirit that combines artistry with adventure.”

The new Speed Triple 1200 RR Breitling Limited Edition will be available from £22,995 OTR. Customers can register their interest at triumphmotorcycles.co.uk.
