2019 Triumph Speed Twin Equipment and Specs

The new Speed Twin is powered by a 1,200cc, 8-valve, 270° crankshaft parallel-Twin big bore mill, same as the one on the biggest Thruxton, Scrambler, and Bonneville. It is capable of producing 96 horsepower and 83 lb-ft of torque, and comes with three ride modes- Sport, Road and Rain.

 The motorcycle also gets a few upgrades in the form of revised clutch assembly, and magnesium engine and cam covers. The whole block is thus lighter and aids in providing an agile dynamic. However, its selling point will rest in a comfortable and relaxed ride.
