Triumph teases 2019 Speed Twin

Triumph Speed Twin

This teaser video shows glimpses of the 2019 Triumph Speed Twin which was expected to be unveiled at the recent European motorcycle shows but will be launched on December 4.

The video only shows dark and blurry images and some very short glimpses of the 1200cc bike in silhouette.

While the Street Twin ($13,700) is the cheapest version of the 900cc range, the Speed Twin may not be the cheapest version of the 1200 range.

In spy shots, we have seen it fitted with expensive Ohlins suspension.

However, in the video it seems to have more budget-conscious gaitered conventional forks and non-piggyback shocks.

Other features we can see include low-profile mirrors, twin instrument pods, straight bench seat, straight bars, a chopped front fender and seven-spoke mag wheels.Triumph Speed Twin

It is difficult to see whether it has dual brake discs as in the spy shots, but we would expect so.

Perhaps, like the recently launched Scrambler 1200 in XC and XE versions, the Speed Twin will come in two version.

The top-spec variant could have Ohlins and other juicy gear.

There is no word yet on when it will arrive in Australia or pricing.

Current Bonneville 1200 prices range from the T120 at $17,200 to the Thruxton 1200 R at $21,100.

One thought on “Triumph teases 2019 Speed Twin

  1. Regardless of the purpose of a teaser video, this video is lacking content and visuals required to appeal to anyone with a pulse. Stylistically, it seems a little high school and not up to a level that I’d expect from a global company.
