It is one of the mythical motorcycles, in a class by itself. The original Triumph Speed Twin was introduced in 1938 and was the world’s first successful parallel twin engine packaged into a chassis. It rode smooth, its handling was a dream and it would establish Triumph as the leading motorcycle brand in the world for its performance and handling. It earned the reputation for being the first real rider’s bike. And so 80 years later, the house brought out its all new 2019 Speed Twin in November of 2018 in Paris, France. It’s a racy looking vehicle and the new 1200cc Speed Twin is what a custom roadster should ride and feel like. The handling is world class as usual and the motorcycle offers a performance that is nothing less than thrilling. Features include the distinctive British twin sound from twin black upswept sports silencers, twin clocks with a digital menu system packed with loads of features, to charge the riders’s essential devices a USB charging socket, 7-spoke aluminium wheels and bar end mirrors.
And the roadster ride is precise, agile and dynamic and the motorcycle is equipped with three riding modes: Sport, Road and Rain. The motorcycle comes in three colors, Silver Ice and Storm Grey, Korosi Red and Storm Grey and Jet Black.
