Triumph’s Stylish Modern Classic: The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin
In any configuration, the Triumph Bonneville is the quintessential British motorcycle. However, for those who want the perfect combination of classic heritage and modern performance, the Speed Twin is the only model that should take your fancy in the 2021 Triumph line-up. It takes everything we love about modern Triumph motorcycles, but installed in a stylish, retro chassis.
The heart of the Speed Twin is Triumph’s high-powered 1200cc liquid-cooled, 8-valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine, uprated with Thruxton tuning. In terms of power, the Speed Twin produces 95 horsepower and 82 lb-ft of peak torque. The power is delivered to the rear wheel via a six-speed transmission and kept under control using Ride-by-Wire technology, switchable traction control, and ABS, a torque-assist clutch, and three riding modes.
Aside from the sleek and classic styling of the Speed Twin—which includes a signature 3.8-gallon tank, upswept exhausts, a bench seat, and sculpted bodywork—other goodies include stylish instrumentation, LED lighting, a tire pressure monitoring system, immobilizer, and USB charging port. Plus, Triumph offers more than 70 accessories for riders to choose from.
For 2021, the Speed Twin is available in three color options: Silver Ice / Storm Grey, Korosi Red / Storm Grey, and Jet Black.
The 2021 Triumph Speed Twin starts from $12,200 USD / $13,400 CAD.
