The Triumph Speed Twin is powered by a liquid cooled, 1,200cc parallel twin engine from the Thruxton, which has been updated for the new motorcycle. The Speed Twin's version of the parallel twin engine features a new magnesium cam cover, mass optimised engine covers and revised clutch asembly.

The 2019 Speed Twin from Triumph features a new frame that is based on the found on the Thruxton R. The suspension setup on the Speed Twin features  41mm Kayba catridge shocks up front and twin shock absorbers at the rear that feature pre-load adjustment.

To bring the powerful new Speed Twin to a stop, Triumph has fitted the modern classic bike with twin 305mm disc brake with four-piston axial callipers up front. The rear wheel is stopped by a 220mm disc brake at the rear which features two floating callipers from Nissin. The 2019 Speed Twin sits on 17-inch alloy wheels that are fitted with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres. The Triumph Speed Twin features ABS and traction control as standard equipment and the bike features three riding modes: Rain, Road and Sport.

Speaking at the launch of the new Triumph Speed Twin in India, Shoeb Farooq, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles India said, "We are proud to launch the 2019 Speed Twin that adds up to our existing modern classics range.
