Triumph Speed Twin BS6: Top 5 Highlights

Triumph Motorcycles India has updated its portfolio with the launch of the BS6-compliant Speed Twin. The retro-style motorcycle has been launched in the country at an ex-showroom (India) price tag of Rs 10.99 lakh. Here we list the top five highlights of the new Triumph Speed Twin BS6.


In terms of design, the 2021 Triumph Speed Twin looks similar to its predecessor. However, the new model features a few styling tweaks over the previous model. These changes include anodised headlight mounts, new mudguard mounts, 12-spoke alloy wheels, and new graphics. The exhaust gets a revised, dual-tone finish and the units on the new model use black tips. The features retained from the old model include a rounded fuel tank with Monza cap, bench seat, and bar-end mirrors.

Instrument Cluster


Standard features on the Speed Twin BS6 comprise full-LED lighting, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a USB power socket, and an engine immobiliser. The electronic rider aids include three riding modes (Rain, Road, and Sport), switchable traction control system, and ABS. The company will offer 50 accessories for the Speed Twin BS6. These include a quilted seat (brown or black), a tyre pressure monitoring system, engine embellishers, radiator and sump guard, heated grips, and an alarm.


Similar to the international markets, the Indian model is available in three colours – Red Hopper, Matte Storm Grey, and Jet Black. The graphics on the fuel tank are similar for Red Hopper and Matte Storm Grey paint options. The Jet Black colour, on the other hand, only features a Triumph branding on the tank and a Speed Twin badge on the side panel.

Right Front Three Quarter


The mechanical specifications on the latest iteration of the Speed Twin include a BS6-compliant 1,200cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that produces 98.6bhp of maximum power at 7,250rpm and 112Nm of peak torque at 4,250rpm. In comparison, the old model made 96bhp of maximum power and 112Nm of peak torque at 4,950rpm. The service interval for the motor stands at 10,000 miles/16,000 kilometres. The motorcycle is backed by a two-year/unlimited mileage warranty.


The new Speed Twin benefits from updated hardware. The suspension setup at the front includes 43mm Marzocchi upside-down front forks instead of conventional units on the BS4 model. The shock absorption tasks at the back are handled by preload-adjustable twin-sided springs. The braking duties are performed by Brembo M50 callipers with 320mm twin discs at the front and a Nissin-sourced calliper with a 220mm single rotor at the back. The 12-spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in Metzeler Racetec RR tyres. The motorcycle tips the weighing scale at 216kg (kerb) and boasts a seat height of 809mm.
