Updated Triumph Speed Twin launched in India at Rs 10.99 lakh: Check out what’s new on the bike- Technology News, Firstpost

The 2021 Triumph Speed Twin – unveiled globally in June with a host of improvements and cosmetic tweaks – has been launched in India today, at a price of Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Introduced in 2018, the Speed Twin is among the biggest motorcycles in Triumph’s Modern Classics range and has found over 11,000 buyers globally in the three years it has been on sale. For 2021, Triumph has upgraded the Speed Twin’s engine, so it’s BS6-compliant (Euro 5) but also makes some more power. Additionally, there are upgrades to the motorcycle’s suspension, tyres and brakes.

Still the same size as before, the 2021 Triumph Speed Twin’s 1,200 cc parallel-twin now makes 100 hp – three horsepower more than before. Triumph attributes this to the inclusion of a lightweight, low-inertia crankshaft and a rare-earth alternator, high-compression pistons and revised ports and cam profile. More importantly, Triumph has tuned the engine to deliver enhanced mid-range torque and made it more responsive. Peak torque of 112 Nm arrives at 4,250 rpm, which is 500 rpm lower than before, and the engine’s rev limiter also kicks in 500 rpm higher than the previous bike’s.

Other important additions include a new 43 mm USD fork by Marzocchi, four-piston M50 monobloc callipers by Brembo to bite down on the twin 320 mm disc brakes up front, and new Metzeler Racetec RR tyres. Also part of the update are upswept ‘megaphone’ exhausts and 12-spoke, 17-inch cast aluminium alloy wheels, which are said to be lightweight. That said, the wet weight of the 2021 Triumph Speed Twin is 216 kg – two kilos heavier than the bike it replaces.

Triumph says it has revised the three ride modes of the Speed Twin – Road, Rain and Sport – to include new throttle maps and dedicated traction control settings. Dual-channel ABS is standard as before, as is the switchable traction control.

Visual changes for the 2021 Triumph Speed Twin include an anodised headlight mount, new mudguards and new tank graphics. The bike will be available in a total of three colours – Red Hopper, Matt Storm Grey and Jet Black.
