premium motorcycle brand, Triumph Motorcycles has launched the 2021 Speed Twin
in India at Rs 10.99 lakh (ex showroom Delhi). The new Speed Twin is
significantly updated for 2021 with higher performance, better handling,
enhanced technology and even more premium custom style and detailing.
Farooq, Business Head- Triumph Motorcycles India said, “We are excited to
re-introduce the 2021 Speed Twin to the Bonneville Family; it’s popularity and
demand has been consistent since we first raised the curtain off this one. With
this launch, we expand the Modern Classic portfolio in India to seven
motorcycles, each with a unique character to suit the discerning tastes of our
consumers. The 2021 Speed Twin, which is now BS6 compliant, offers a seamless
amalgamation of character and style, combining the torquey character of the
Thurxton R and the contemporary style and nimbleness of the Street Twin which
is sure to attract younger audiences.”
for having the power and torque of the Thruxton R in an even more accessible
set up, the Speed Twin delivered the contemporary custom style and engaged ride
of the Street Twin, with even more premium and beautiful details and touches.
updated for 2021, the Speed Twin’s 1200cc High Power Bonneville twin engine now
has even higher performance, as well as lower emissions, making it fully Euro 5
compliant. The engine now delivers 3PS more peak power with 100PS at 7,250rpm,
plus more power in the mid-range than the previous generation.
2021 Speed Twin also has a fuller torque curve, with peak torque of 112Nm
arriving more than 500rpm lower down the rev range compared to the previous
responsiveness of the Speed Twin engine has also been enhanced, thanks to a 17%
reduction in inertia obtained via a new lightweight crankshaft and alternator.
These enable the engine to spin up faster than the previous generation, and rev
harder for longer, with a red line now 500rpm higher than before. In addition,
new high compression pistons, revised ports and a new cam profile complete the
list of performance enhancements.
distinctive sound of the Bonneville Twin is amplified by the new brushed
stainless steel megaphone twin upswept sports silencers that have been
carefully crafted for a deep, throaty roar to match the Speed Twin’s legendary
name. The innovative and uninterrupted exhaust header run cleverly conceals the
catalyst box, delivering the characteristic clean-line “straight-run” design.
with all the models in Triumph’s Modern Classic range, the cost of ownership is
kept low thanks to the high first major service interval of 16,000 kilometres.

front forks with cartridge damping, bringing a more confidence-inspiring and
