Review

For the more dedicated Triumph enthusiasts, the British engineers have launched a special version of the Adventurer, in the shape of the Triumph Adventure 900 Limited Edition.

Sporting a 885cc, three-cylinder power plant capable of producing 70 horsepower and 72 Nm of torque, as the base Adventurer, the engine is especially effective at mid-range power delivery, making the bike a joy to ride on winding, countryside roads during the weekend.

Triumph have produced only 50 of these machines, and, to tell them apart, they have fitted them with an engraved, chromed cover on the left side of the bike that simply states: "Limited Edition, Nr. X/50".
