The Triumph Speed Twin has always been one sweet motorcycle, and with an updated engine (plus some other changes), it’s likely to become even nicer.
The bike has the same liquid-cooled, 1,200cc parallel twin as before, but it now makes more power – 98.6 bhp alongside 11.42 kgm of torque. That’s not all. The suspension now has 43mm Marzocchi USD forks, and the rear shock absorbers are preload-adjustable twin-sided spring units. The 320mm twin discs up front have Brembo M50 callipers, and the single 220mm rear disc has a Nissin calliper; the tyres are Metzeler Racetec RR.
There are a bunch of cosmetic upgrades too. There are new graphics, three new colours and anodised headlight mounts, plus new mudguard mounts. Triumph is offering a range of accessories as well, such as a TPMS, heated grips, a quilted seat and an alarm system. The new Speed Twin has been priced at Rs 10.99 lakh, ex-showroom India.
