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 Speedmaster is based on Bobber, but there are differences. The Speedmaster gets a 310mm twin-disc brake setup at the front along with a slightly fatter tyre as well.
Standard features on the new Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster are the ride-by-wire, switchable traction control, ABS, two riding modes (road and rain), cruise control and a full LED headlamp with a DRL.
There two accessories kit on offer: 'Highway kit' and the 'Maverick kit.' The highway kit receives a full set of soft-luggage panniers while the maverick kit receives a single seat and raked out bars for that laid-back look.
Also, Triumph will be offering over 130 custom bits which include a Vance & Hines exhaust, adjustable touring screens, highway pegs among others.
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.
