2021 Triumph Speed Twin revealed

The 2021 Speed Twin gets chassis and engine updates among other changes.

Triumph has unveiled the 2021 Speed Twin, packing more performance than before.

The updated Speed Twin features new 12-spoke alloy wheels that are wrapped in Metzeler Racetec RR tyres. It gets an analogue instrument cluster featuring a digital screen, new graphics, anodized aluminium headlamp mounts and swingarm, upswept exhausts with brushed aluminium finish, new mudguard mounts and brushed aluminium side panels and heel guards.

Powering the Speed Twin is a 1,200cc, parallel-twin engine that revs a bit higher and makes slightly more power thanks to a 17% reduction in inertia as a result of a new crankshaft, balancer shaft and cam profile. The engine puts out 99 BHP @ 7,250 rpm and 112 Nm @ 4,250 rpm. The bike gets three riding modes – Rain, Road and Sport.

On the chassis side, Triumph has changed the steering geometry. The bike gets new 43 mm Marzocchi forks at the front and twin rear shock absorbers with adjustable preload. Braking duties are handled by dual 320 mm disc brakes with Brembo 4-piston calipers at the front and a 220 mm rear disc with a 2-piston Nissin calipers.

The service interval for the 2021 Speed Twin is 16,000 km. The bike is likely to arrive at our shores later this year.
