  • Triumph Motorcycles launches the Speed Twin in India

    Triumph Motorcycles has launched the Speed Twin in India at INR 9,46,000 (Ex-showroom). The new Speed Twin carries the legacy of the 1938 legendary Street Twin in terms of its contemporary custom style but adds more premium details. The modern roadster character comes to life through its 1200cc high power 8 valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine, specifically updated for the new Speed Twin. This revised high performance engine features a low inertia crank and high compression head, and is developed from the Thruxton R’s power plant.

    Engine updates include:

    1. New magnesium cam cover
    2. Revised clutch assembly
    3. New mass optimised engine covers


    Together these deliver a 2.5kg weight saving versus the Thruxton engine. It makes 97 PS peak power @ 6,750rpm and peak torque of 112 Nm @ 4,950rpm. The Speed Twin’s all new distinctive twin upswept silencers deliver a rich and deep exhaust note. The motorcycle features a liquid cooling system, carefully integrated to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving clean emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency. Combined with an extended first major service interval of 16,000km, this contributes to a reduced overall cost of ownership.

    The new frame developed from the Thruxton R delivers comfortable engaged roadster ergonomics. The Speed Twin brings also gets cartridge front forks and twin rear suspension units with adjustable spring pre-load; Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres, twin Brembo 4-piston axial calipers on the front with twin discs, and a 2-piston floating caliper and single disc on the rear A 10-kilogram weight saving compared to the Thruxton, contributes to its exciting handling.

    Designed with personalisation in mind, the Speed Twin comes with over 80 accessories to help you add more style, practicality and security.

    For any Interceptor 650 owners this will be perfect upgrade when the times comes.

    If you ever need to own a Bonnie, this is the ONE. Right amount of power a nd truck loads of bottom end torque. Makes the new Street twin, T100, T120 useless to buy in India.

    This is the only Bonneville to ride and own! Has all the right things in perfect doses.

      I also heard that triumph announced that they'll be opening up their own store where they would sell 2nd hand triumphs. Something that Harley has been doing for some time now.
