Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled the latest model of its Speedmaster crusier. The 2018 Triumph Speedmaster adds to the Bonneville lineup and will be sold as a classic cruiser offering when it arrives in India.
The 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster looks pretty much like a souped up Bonneville T100/T120 with low pulled back handlebars and lowered seating, making it more comfortable for longer rides. It features the classic British motorcycle looks but adds modern twist with some brushed metal around the engine, while the headlamp and the daytime running lamps get the LED treatment.
You get two seats, but it can easily be converted into a single seater if needed. Adding to light modern design elements, are ride-by-wire technology (two riding modes), ABS, traction control and even cruise control.
As for the engine, the Speedmaster offers a 1,200 cc, liquid-cooled parallel-twin that produces 77PS and 106 Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission and reportedly offers up to 10 percent more power than the 2015 model.
The cruiser sits on 16-inch wheels both at the front and the rear and rides on 41 mm front shocks and a single rear monoshock.
