REASONS TO RIDE
The all-new Speed Twin is exactly how a custom roadster should ride, sound, and feel.
The Speed Twin is a beautiful high-specification blend of premium modern classic style, thrilling roadster performance and category-leading handling. This exciting new bike has been designed with all the sporty torque of the Thruxton, all the modern custom style of the Street Twin, and all the iconic DNA and presence of the Bonneville T120. But the Speed Twin is much more too; if you want the next generation of dynamic riding capability and 1200cc high power performance, combined with stunning modern custom style and sound, then the Speed Twin is your perfect choice.
Here are some highlights to look for when you take this incredible motorcycle out for a test ride.
1. BONNEVILLE 1200cc ENGINE
At the new Speed Twin’s heart is an updated high power 1200cc Bonneville twin engine with the celebrated Thruxton performance tune that peaks at 97PS @ 6,750rpm. Evolved from the Thruxton powerplant, this enhanced engine is a low inertia high performance 6-speed 8-valve parallel twin that now features a magnesium cam cover, a revised clutch assembly and mass-optimised engine covers.
2. THRILLING TORQUE DELIVERY
This is a new kind of performance modern classic, with an exhilarating torque delivery from low down and then right through the range. Torque peaks at 112Nm (@4,950rpm), matching the output of the Thruxton R, and a whole 40% more than Triumph’s latest Street Twin model.
3. HIGH SPECIFICATIONS
Built to a high performance specification, the Speed Twin noticeably showcases twin Brembo front brakes. In addition, lightweight cast aluminium wheels and high specification Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3 tyres both contribute to the Speed Twin’s class leading agile and dynamic handling. An Anti-locking Braking System (ABS), and traction control that is easily switchable via the left hand switchcube, deliver enhanced control of the Speed Twin’s high torque performance whatever the riding conditions.
4. DISTINCTIVE TWIN SOUND
This incredible motorcycle has a thrilling deep British roar to match the Speed Twin’s legendary name. The distinctive twin black megaphone upswept sports silencers produce a wonderful throaty sound which is all capably supported by Triumph’s innovative uninterrupted flowing exhaust header run, with hidden cat box, so the lines are as smooth as the ride itself.
7. CATEGORY-LEADING DETAILS & FINISH
A huge aspect of the Speed Twin’s allure is its beautiful custom classic looks, which is why the detailing and finish that you’ll find on the Speed Twin are nothing short of category-leading. Specially-crafted brushed aluminium features include mudguards, throttle body covers, side panel finishers, and heel guards. The magnificent aluminium theme continues with a bright anodised forged aluminium headlight bracket and clear anodised aluminium swingarm.
8. BEAUTIFULLY MODERN CUSTOM STYLE
Triumph’s timeless DNA is at the core of the Speed Twin’s modern classic looks, and this is blended together with a more contemporary stripped-back custom style and poise. Original equipment features also include the Speed Twin’s 14.5-litre signature sculpted fuel tank, the comfortable stylish bench seat, minimal front mudguard & rear end setup with elegant rear light, and bar end mirrors.
9. CUSTOMISING OPTIONS
The beauty of a Triumph modern classic motorcycle lies in how it has been built with customising in mind, and the Speed Twin has over 80 custom accessories available to enhance your bike’s style, capability, comfort and security and create a true one-off special.
