Triumph to launch Bonneville Speedmaster on February 27

Triumph Motorcycles will finally launch the Bonneville Speedmaster on February 27th. This makes this launch the company’s first in the current calendar year. 

The Bonneville Speedmaster is a cruiser version of the Bobber. It’s been targeted at countries that have demand for such cruisers. While the Speedmaster looks quite identical to its single-seater cousin, the Bobber does get some additions that makes it stand out. Things like chrome, wide handlebar, and pillion seat gives the Speedmaster a distinctive identity. 

This cruiser uses the same 1200cc ‘High-Torque’ engine as the Bobber which 76bhp at 6100rpm and 106Nm at 4000rpm. It also shares the Bobber’s ‘swing-cage’ type swingarm. Triumph has increased the fuel-tank capacity to 12-litres to give the cruiser a bit more in touring capabilities. The Speedmaster gets a suspension upgrade with 41mm KYB forks up front. The rear gets a KYB monoshock that is hidden away under the seat. The bike also gets Brembo brakes for the front and a single-disc Nissin at the rear.

Just like the most of the bikes in the Bonneville family, the Speedmaster too gets a host of latest technologies. It sports two riding modes- road and rain, switchable traction control and cruise control along with ABS.

The Bonneville Speedmaster will go against the Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom and the Indian Scout in the Indian market. It will be sold as a completely-knocked-down(CKD) unit through all Triumph showrooms. We’re expecting this bike to be priced close to Rs 10 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). 

Ex-showroom, Mumbai
