Triumph Motorcycles has expanded its lineup of retro classic roadsters in the Indian two wheeler market by bringing the Speed Twin to our shores. The new Triumph Speed Twin has been priced at Rs. 10.99 (ex-showroom, India) and comes with a number of comprehensive updates as compared to its erstwhile version.
2021 Triumph Speed Twin: Design
The new Triumph Speed Twin comes with the same classic design lines with a round headlamp with a daytime running LED, LED turn indicators and tail lamp, dual-pod analog instrument console with LCD screen, bar-end rear view mirrors, upswept dual exhausts and a flat long seat.
The new Triumph Speed Twin has been made available in three new paint options, namely Jet Black, Red Hopper and Matt Storm Grey. In all these three color options, the motorcycle comes with stripes on the fuel tank and side body panels with aluminium finished nameplates of ‘Speed Twin’.
2021 Triumph Speed Twin: Engine and Transmission
The new Triumph Speed Twin retains the four-stroke, liquid cooled, parallel twin, 1200cc engine from the previous generation model. However, this time around, the engine has gone under several revisions, including revised intake and exhaust ports, new cam profiles and higher compression pistons. All these changes have been introduced to make the engine cleaner and more responsive.
In the process, the engine no makes a higher power output of 100 bhp and a maximum torque output of 112 Nm. Like before, the engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox.

For the new BS6 Triumph Speed Twin, the bike receives a new steering rake angle, which is reduced by half a degree. Other changes include new bigger 43mm upside down hydraulic telescopic forks from Marzocchi at the front and dual sided fully adjustable hydraulic coil springs at the back.
The new 12-spoke alloy wheels are shod with Metzeler Racetec RR tyres. Lastly, even the brakes are new as well, with the radially mounted M50 monobloc calipers replacing the axially mounted calipers. The Speed Twin comes with 320mm discs at the front and single 220mm disc at the rear.
