Given the Speedmaster's retro styling and affordable price point, Triumph saw no need for fuel-injection. These carbs work well enough, though, supplying a good, smooth draw from 1500 rpm on up. There's a nice surge in the middle before things turn their usual shade of fuzz and motivation goes soft as you thunk the next cog. Good clutch action, too, with nice engagement and lever effort. Similarly, the brakes, front and rear, have on tap sufficient friction that is easy to modulate.
