What Is It?

The Triumph T509 is a naked bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 885cc triple engine, producing 108bhp at 9,300rpm and maximum torque at 7,600rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame with single sided swingarm
  • Dual 320mm discs up front with 2 piston calipers
  • 220mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable Showa 45mm fork
  • Adjustable Showa rear shock
  • 3->1 exhaust system
  • Plastic fuel tank
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the T309 power is up 11bhp, the tubular frame is far more obvious, the soon to become iconic "bug eye" headlights were introduced and the swingarm switched to a single sided design.

The bike is basically the Aluminium frame and brakes from the T959 Daytona but with a new 885cc engine featuring fuel injection, while the transmission is moved up from 5 to 6 gears and the front disc is slightly larger.

The 3-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.

Colours: Green, black, orange
