2019 SPEED TWIN TRUM­PET

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - NEWS -

We know we’re more into clas­sic Jap and retro Jap bikes than look­ing at the British stuff, but we rather like the look of the 2019 Speed Twin from Tri­umph. Their blurb says that: “...the beau­ti­ful new 1200cc Speed Twin rein­tro­duces a leg­endary Tri­umph name and sets a new cat­e­gory bench­mark for how a cus­tom road­ster should ride and feel, with class-lead­ing han­dling and thrilling per­for­mance.” We clearly can’t com­ment on all that, but she sure does look rather saucy, fea­tur­ing such mod­ern touches as Brembo brakes, ABS, switch­able trac­tion con­trol, low seat height, 1200cc Bon­neville-based par­al­lel twin with around 97bhp, LED lights, slip­per clutch and even a USB charg­ing socket! Price isn’t avail­able un­til Jan­uary 18, so for more, go to: www.tri­umph­mo­tor­cy­cles. co.uk/mo­tor­cy­cles/clas­sic/bon­neville­speed-twin

We like... a lot!
