Triumph Motorcycles recently launched the Speed Twin in India with a price tag of Rs 9.46 lakhs (ex-showroom, India). We bring to you the 5 major highlights of the newest member of Triumph's modern-classic family in the country.
The Speed Twin as we mentioned is part of Triumph's modern-classic range and borrows styling cues from the smallest motorcycle of the lot; the Street Twin. It gets a round headlamp with an LED DRL and LED turn signals, a beefy tank, single-piece seat and twin, stubby exhausts.
Powering the Triumph Speed Twin in the tried-and-tested 1200cc, parallel-twin engine from the Thruxton R. This motor is capable of generating 96bhp of power and 112Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
Suspension and braking
The Speed Twin rides on alloy wheels on both ends with suspension duties being taken care of by telescopic forks for the front and twin shocks at the rear. Meanwhile, braking is done by twin 305mm disc at the front, held on by Brembo four-pot calipers and a 220mm disc at the rear.
Electronic rider aids
Triumph has equipped the Speed Twin's electronic kitty with a ride-by-wire throttle control system, traction control and three ride modes; Road Rain and Sport along with a dual-channel ABS unit.
The Triumph Speed Twin is being offered in three colour schemes namely- 'Silver Ice', 'Korosi Red' and 'Jet Black'. These colours are mainly on the fuel tank with most of the Speed Twin's components like the drivetrain, suspension and alloys being finished in black for a modern look.
