Triumph Motorcycles has resurrected a legendary name from its history by unveiling a new modern classic, the 2019 Speed Twin.

It looks like it has relation to the Bonneville family, but with a muscular styling and newer engine, the 2019 Speed Twin does look more enticing. It is built around a chassis that has been borrowed from the Thruxton R. At the front, there are 41mm non-adjustable cartridge forks and at the rear, there’s the traditional twin shock setup with adjustable pre-load. The braking on the Speed Twin is taken care of by a Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and dual 305mm discs at the front and 2-piston Nissin floating caliper with single disc at the rear.

The Speed Twin gets 7-spoke cast aluminium wheels, measuring 17 inches both front and back. These wheels are shod with Pirelli Rosso Corsa 3 tyres. The fuel tank can hold 14.5 litres of fuel and features the Monza style filler cap. 

The Speed Twin gets its power from a 1200cc parallel-twin engine that is also seen on the Thruxton and the Bobber. It churns out 96bhp at 6750rpm and peak torque of 112Nm at 4950rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The bike gets three riding modes, ABS and switchable traction control system.
