Triumph Motorcycles had previously announced that it will introduce three new products in the Indian market – the Bonneville Speedmaster, the new Tiger 800 XC/XR and the Tiger 1200. While we’re yet to hear the official launch date of the Tiger range, Triumph Motorcycles will launch the new Bonneville Speedmaster in the Indian market on February 27, 2018. The new 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster was previously showcased at the 2017 India Bike Week although the prices were not disclosed.
The new 2018 Triumph Speedmaster is based on the Bobber and incorporates the Bonneville’s character. It features a split seat setup, and twin disc brakes at the front. Illuminating duties are performed by a full LED headlight with DRLs. The new Speedmaster also sports LED tail light, LED blinkers and number plate light. The motorcycle features a 12-litre fuel tank. The new Triumph Speedmaster rides on 16-inch 32 spoke wire wheels.
It continues to use Triumph’s 1200cc liquid-cooled, 8-valve, 270° crank angle parallel twin engine which is tuned for 77 PS of power at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and features a torque assist clutch. The new motor is claimed to delive00r 42% more torque than the previous generation Speedmaster, and 10% more than the current model Triumph Bonneville T120. Ride-by-wire, and an engine immobiliser with transponder key come as standard. The motorcycle is also the first in the range to feature cruise control. The first major service interval arrives at 10,000 mile / 16,000km.
