Tri­umph Bonneville Speed­mas­ter

Bike India - - IGNITION -

BASED ON TRI­UMPH’S SUC­CESS­FUL BONNEVILLE PLAT­FORM, THE Speed­mas­ter brings the Bob­ber’s 1,200-cc in-line twin and tubu­lar steel frame back to­gether, this time in a laid-back, arms-wide, feet­for­ward stance. The liq­uid-cooled en­gine makes 77 PS at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm at 4,000 rpm and is mated to a six-speed gear­box. The bike fea­tures KYB sus­pen­sion at both ends, two 320-mm discs and Brembo twin-pis­ton calipers up front and a Nissin sin­gle-pot set-up at the rear. It is also equipped with ride-by-wire throt­tle, two rid­ing modes, ABS, trac­tion con­trol, and cruise con­trol.

This Speed­mas­ter fits per­fectly into the cruiser mould, with its long and low-pro­file fat tyres on 16-inch spoked wheels, wide 705-mmhigh seat, and sin­gle-pod in­stru­ments. Priced at Rs 11.11 lakh (exshow­room), this Bri­tish mo­tor­cy­cle is well set to take on our cruiser mar­ket, one dom­i­nated by Amer­i­can brands thus far.
