Triumph Motorcycles has finally launched the Speed Twin in India. This bike is priced at Rs 9.46 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), making it Rs 51,000 cheaper expensive than the Bonneville T120.

The British maker has dipped the bike in black to give it a proper modern-classic street look. The bike sports an LED DRL along with turn indicators. The bar end mirrors, forged aluminium headlight bracket, and brushed aluminium front and rear mud guards enhances the overall appeal.
The Triumph Speed Twin is built around the same chassis that is used on the Thruxton R. In fact, the 1200cc parallel-twin motor is also from the Thruxton R. This engine churns out 96bhp of peak power and 112Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Braking duties are done by dual 305mm discs at the front with Brembo four-piston calipers and a 220mm disc at the rear.
