2020 Triumph Street Twin, Speedmaster Launched, Priced From Rs. 7.45 Lakhs
Triumph Motorcycles India have expanded their BS6 model range with the launch of two more motorcycles.
Triumph has launched the 2020 Bonneville Speedmaster with a price tag of Rs. 11.33 lakhs (ex-showroom) and the 2020 Street Twin at Rs. 7.45 lakhs (ex-showroom). Both motorcycles are now BS6 compliant and are priced similar to the BS4 versions.
Speedmaster – Built on the same platform as the Bobber, the Speedmaster gets a similar design upfront with circular headlights, analogue instrument gauge with LCD display, fat forks, neatly styled fuel tank and an engine that barely fits inside the frame. However, the subframe is different, for it gets a pillion seat, and the suspension setup has changed too.
Despite the 2020 Triumph Speedmaster price remaining unchanged for the BS6 update, the manufacturer has provided a new colour called Cobalt Blue with Jet Black. Other colour options available are Jet Black and Fusion White and Phantom Black with handpainted coachline. The last is a Rs. 30,000/- option.
Engine on the bike is a 1200cc parallel-twin that produces 77 PS and 107 Nm which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Suspension on the bike are KYB 41 mm forks upfront and KYB monoshock with linkage and stepped preload adjuster at the rear. There are twin 310 mm discs at the front with Brembo calipers and a single 255 mm disc with Nissin caliper at the back and ABS is present too.
Overall, the bike weighs a portly 245.5 kg and has a 12 litre fuel tank. Triumph even offers over 130 accessories for those who feel the 2020 Triumph Speedmaster price is not burning a big enough hole in their wallet.
Street Twin – Although the Street Twin looks like the BS4 model, Triumph has made some changes to the motorcycle, the chief of which has been done to the engine.
Displacing 900cc, the parallel-twin now produces 65 PS, 18 percent more than the BS4 model. We suspect this is because various tuning companies found that Triumph had restricted the 900cc engine so much (so as to not come near the 1200cc models) and they set about unleashing its real potential. Some even came up with a custom cam to draw more power.
Torque produced by the bike is 80 Nm and the motor is linked to a 5-speed gearbox that also has an assist clutch. Other features include ride-by-wire, two-into-two exhaust system and multi-point sequential electronic fuel injection.
Other than that, the model remains the same with its classic styling and modern hardware. Thus, it continues to get KYB 41mm front forks upfront, preload-adjustable KYB twin suspension at the rear, alloy wheels, 310 mm disc at the front and 220 mm rotor at the back doing the braking duty along with ABS and for additional security, there is traction control.
Offered in three colours – Jet Black, Matt Ironstone and Korosi Red, the latter two cost more at Rs. 7.58 lakhs (ex-showroom). Weighing in at 198 kg, the bike is not light and it comes with a 12-litre fuel tank and there are over 140 accessories to personalise the bike at the showroom.
