Hi as a new owner of a 2011 Speedmaster i was wondering why some Speedys have 2 front disks and others including mine only 1, i hope this is not a stupid question. :confused::confused::confused:

I think that they decided that 2 disc's were an overkill and 1 was good enough. Single disc on my bike and no problems stopping here.Tho i like the looks of 2 discs up front myself.

This is just a theroy but usally you can find the answer to most questions by following the money, yea that's right "COST". Why put extra money in a bike if you can make a better profit. :eek:

Triumph wanted to 'clean up' the front end on the Speedy and did this by removing the upper fork covers, painted the forks legs black, new front wheel with skinnier tyre and a single disc.

I prefer the heavier look of the pre 2011 Speedy, but that's just personal preference.
