Triumph Motorcycles has launched the 2019 Triumph Speed Twin in India for a starting price of Rs. 9,46,000 (Ex-showroom, ). The all-new Speed Twin uses the same 1200 cc 'high power' parallel-twin which is offered on the Thruxton R. The engine of course gets a few revisions such as a low inertia crank and a high compression head. The cam cover is now made of magnesium and the clutch assembly too has been revised. The engine makes 96 bhp at 6,750 rpm along with a peak torque output of 112 Nm at 4,950 rpm. The engine is lighter than that of the Thruxton R by 2.5 kg and it is paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Speed Twin looks sharper, sportier and more aggressive too. The overall styling looks fresh yet classic with elements like the brushed aluminium body parts offering that premium touch. It is offering up to 80 accessories on the new Speed Twin range, which include styling, practicality and security upgrades.
The new Speed Twin is basically a model that Triumph calls a modern custom roadster. The classic lines along with retro styled panels and the chiselled fuel tank are testament to the same. The design is all retro but underneath that classic look, the new Speed Twin is a fully modern motorcycle. Triumph offers features such as torque-assisted clutch along with three riding modes (Road, Sport and Rain) and ride-by-wire as well. Then there is ABS and traction control too, which can be switched off. The motorcycle also gets full LED lighting as standard. There is also a USB charging socket along with a twin-pod instrument console with each pod having a small digital readout. Triumph Speed Twin is being offered in three colour options - Jet Black, Silver Ice/Storm Grey, and Korosi Red/Storm Grey.
