2019 Triumph Speed Twin unveiled
Triumph Motorcycles introduces an all-new model in its modern classic range - the 2019 Triumph Speed Twin. The new Speed Twin will be part of the Triumph Bonneville family and will combine the performance of the Triumph Thruxton R cafe racer with the practicality and easy accessibility of the Bonneville T120. It shares the same 1200 cc Bonneville "high power" engine as the Thruxton R's, producing 96 bhp at 6,750 rpm and 112 Nm of peak torque at 4,950 rpm.
The original Speed Twin was first produced in 1938 and was known for its power and handling, until production was stopped in 1966. The new era Speed Twin also promises to be a sporty machine, sitting between the committed Thruxton R and the easy and casual ergonomics of the Bonneville T120. And at 196 kg, the Speed Twin is also got a 10 kg lighter dry weight than the Thruxton R. Ergonomics are slightly sporty and the engine also gets lighter components, and 2.5 kg of weight is saved in the engine alone - with magnesium cam covers and other changes in the internals, including a revised clutch assembly.
The new Triumph Speed Twin is expected to be launched sometime in mid-2019 in India.
