Triumph Motorcycles Street Twin Black Inspiration Kit 2018

Murdered Out: Triumph Street Twin Black Inspiration Kit

In 2018 Triumph Motorcycles created an inspiration kit for the 900cc Street Twin. The Street Twin Black inspiration kit is a combination of blacked-out Triumph catalogue components and accessories or to use popular vernacular, the bike is murdered-out.

Street Twin Black Inspiration Kit

The Black inspiration kit gives the likeable Street Twin, a similar look to that of the Bobber Black ( mean and moody). This is an inspiration kit – so obviously no changes to the Street Twin 2018 platform.  

However, it should give you an idea of the type of look you can achieve with parts from Triumph’s own catalogue. Incidentally, parts from Triumph’s catalogue number in the region of one hundred and thirty items – which offers the flexibility to create your own look.
