2021 Triumph Speed Twin Launched at Rs 10.99 lakh
The 2021 Triumph Speed Twin which was unveiled but Triumph globally in June earlier this year has finally made its way to India and has been launched at a price of Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Speed Twin comes with a host of improvements and cosmetic tweaks that now give the bike a stronger emphasis on performance over older Speed Twin model it replaces.
Styling details and finishes of the 2021 Triumph Speed Twin are harmonised across the motorcycle, including brushed aluminium front and rear mudguards with new mounts along with the side panel finishers and heel guards. There are also neat touches in the form of the new anodised headlamp mounts, classic Monza fuel cap and swingarm.
The revised liquid-cooled power unit houses new high compression pistons, revised ports, a new cam profile and even gets a new lightweight crankshaft and alternator which the company says has collectively led to a 17 percent reduction in inertia, thus allowing the motor to spin faster and rev longer with the red line now 500rpm higher than on its predecessor. Power is now up to 100PS @ 7,250rpm which is 3PS over the older model, while the motor puts out a peak torque of 112Nm at 4,250rpm which is delivered at 500revs lower than before.
The new bike gets higher specification 43mm USD Marzocchi front forks that replace to the previous gen's KYB setup. Braking performance has improved with the new gen Speed Twin as well. At the front, the latest model sports 4-piston Brembo M50 radial monobloc brake calipers and twin 320mm discs, with the rear getting a 2-piston Nissin floating rear caliper with a single 220mm disc. With ABS fitted as standard, the new setup on both ends is expected to deliver a stronger initial bite and improved feel. The 2021 Speed Twin now sports 17-inch Metzeler Racetec RR tyres instead of the Pirellis that featured on the outgoing model. Weighing in at 216kg, the 2021 Speed Twin is two kilos heavier than the model it replaces.
The new-gen Speed Twin comes with a torque-assist clutch, an enhanced ride-by-wire system that enables three riding modes: Rain, Road and Sport, ad switchable traction control. The bike will be available in a total of three colours Red Hopper, Matt Storm Grey and Jet Black.
