Renowned British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph has announced the launch of its Speedmaster Gold Line edition for the Indian market. Priced at INR 12,75,000 (ex-showroom), the new bike is the most expensive among 5 other Gold Line editions. The brand has stated that it will produce the Gold Line edition of the Speedmaster for just a year. To enhance its exclusivity, the bike will feature the Triumph paint shop’s hand-painted, gold lining skills, resembling the other bikes.
Artists from Triumph’s paint shop state that it takes years of patience, expertise, and steady hands to develop gold-lining skills. Upon applying the two-tone colour palette, the paint team begins to flatten the meeting point between the two colours. A single trained artist from the shop then applies the continuous gold pinstripe by hand via a soft-bristled sword-liner brush. Finally, the process is complete after the coat of lacquer has been applied to seal the gold pinstripe.
