New Speed Twin from Triumph

For power, it uses an updated 1200cc Bonneville twin engine with ‘Thruxton’ tune, pumping out maximum power of 97PS @ 6750rpm, and a torque figure of 112Nm @ 4950rpm.

It’s not all about power though. The new bike is 10kg lighter than the Thruxton, so it should be more accessible, with a more relaxed riding position too.

Brembo brakes, LED lights and USB socket give an idea of the tech level, and 80+ accessories make it possible to really turn the bike into your own.
