The 2023 Triumph Speed Twin 900: All In The Name

You can be fully forgiven for thinking the illustrious British Motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph, has brought out an all-new model. Initially, I was hopeful as well, but then it all became clear. The beloved Street Twin has been renamed the Speed Twin 900. This does indeed make sense when looking at the 2023 Triumph lineup, making the Speed family complete with both 900 and 1200 versions.

As the Street Twin, this bike last saw an overhaul for the 2019 model year. Powered by the latest generation of the 900cc Bonneville engine, the parallel-twin offers an impressive peak torque of 59 LB-FT at a low 3,800 rpm and peak power of 64 HP at 7,500 rpm.

Triumph made sure to provide heaps of safety and technology for the Speed Twin bikes and these include selectable riding modes, Switchable Traction Control, ABS, and a torque-assist clutch. The 41mm front forks, preload adjustable twin RSU rears, and Brembo brakes provide tremendous confidence to toss the Speed Twin 900 around at pace.

The seat height of just over 30 inches and the sub 500-pound wet weight, make the Speed Twin 900 the perfect entry point into the joys of riding a Bonneville machine. Triumph has also included the Speed Twin 900 in the special Chrome Editions. For a $500 upcharge, you can get this unique version.

Color choices for the 2023 Triumph Speed Twin 900 models: Jet Black, Matte Ironstone, Matte Silver Ice, and Chrome edition.

2023 Triumph Speed Twin 900 model pricing starts at: $9,895 USD / $11,195 CAD
