Triumph Unveils The New Bonneville Speedmaster

Written By:

British iconic bike maker has taken the cover off the new Bonneville Speedmaster cruiser at an event held in Hinckley, England, the home of Triumph.

The latest addition to the Bonneville range, the Speedmaster is based on the Bobber with higher-spec components including brakes and suspension.

While the Bonneville T120 and the Bobber cater to riders looking for traditional style but with all the modern and engineering, the new Triumph Speedmaster takes everything a step further.

The new Speedmaster uses the Bobber's 1200cc ‘High-Torque' version of the new Bonnie engine, in the same state of tuning and producing the same peak figures of 106Nm at 4,000rpm.

The 1200cc parallel twin, liquid cooled unit produces 76bhp at 6,100rpm and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and also gets a torque-assisted clutch for quicker gearshifts.

The new Triumph Speedmaster draws inspiration from Triumphs of the 1960s with attention-to-detail components and looks every bit as other Bonneville bikes, but carries its own identity well.

    The Bonneville T120 and the Bobber are known for their traditional style and new engineering, but the Speedmaster is for riders who look to laidback style and has more touring capabilities.

    For India, Triumph did not offer the previous Speedmaster; however, the new model is expected to debut at the 2018 Auto Expo to be held in February.
