The ‘Maverick’ kit gives the Speedmaster an even more stripped back, mean attitude with a brown quilted single seat set up, flatter raked out handlebars, black Vance & Hines exhausts and other blacked out details, including exhaust headers, oil filler cap, and a grab rail removal kit and rear mudguard finisher for a stylish and minimal rear end.
The new 2018 Triumph Speedmaster come equipped with split seat setup, twin disc brakes at the front, full LED headlight with DRLs, LED tail light, LED blinkers and number plate light. The motorcycle also features a 12-litre fuel tank and rides on 16-inch 32 spoke wire wheels.
The motorcycle continues to use Triumph’s 1200cc liquid-cooled, 8-valve, 270° crank angle parallel twin engine which is tuned for 77 PS of power (25% up on the 2015 Speedmaster and 10% up on the Bonneville T120) at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm of peak torque (42% more peak torque than the 2015 Triumph Speedmaster and up to 10% more than the current generation Bonneville T120) at 4,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and features a torque assist clutch. The motorcycle comes equipped with Ride-by-Wire and features two riding modes: Rain and Road.
Stopping power is provided by 310mm twin disc with Brembo calipers upfront and a 255mm single disc with Nissin caliper at the rear.
Buyers can choose from over 130 custom accessories available through Triumph’s online configurator. Official accessories include premium Vance & Hines exhausts, swing arm bags and panniers, highway pegs, engine bars, and an adjustable touring screen. For those wanting to set up their Speedmaster in the single seat configuration, there is also a grab rail removal kit and rear mudguard finisher.
Bonneville clothing collection will also be available in Triumph dealerships globally, timed to match the bike’s availability. The new Speedmaster range includes four t-shirts, a casual quilted jacket, a monochrome checked riding shirt, and a trendy grey hoodie.
