Mechanical specifications retain the 1,200cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled layout. The updated model, however, makes slightly more power than its predecessor. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the updated engine makes 98.6bhp at 7,250rpm as against 96bhp on the old motorcycle. The peak torque remains at 112Nm although it now comes at 4,250rpm as against 4,950rpm on the old model.

The 2021 Triumph Speed Twin also gets improved hardware over its predecessor. The suspension tasks are handled by 43mm Marzocchi upside-down forks with cartridge damping at the front and preload-adjustable twin-sided springs at the rear. The braking setup includes 320mm twin discs at the front that are grabbed by Brembo M50 callipers. The anchoring setup at the back comprises a 220mm single rotor with a Nissin-sourced calliper. The 17-inch, 12-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped in Metzeler Racetec RR tyres.
