The 2023 Triumph Speed Twin 1200 higher performance, better handling, enhanced tech and even more premium style. The incredible Speed Twin 1200 sets a new benchmark.
A significant engine update sees an increase in both peak power, now up 3 HP to 98 HP, and also mid-range power. The torque this is also up in the mid-range, which is where the Bonneville twin engine excels, and better still, there is also a reduction in inertia thanks to a lightweight crankshaft and a rare earth alternator. Combined with high compression pistons, revised ports and a cam profile, the Speed Twin is even more responsive than before, spinning up faster and revving harder for longer.
Delivering the pinnacle in modern classic sports riding experience was a key part of the design team’s brief. The front suspension was upgraded to higher-specification Marzocchi 43mm upside down forks with cartridge damping for an even more precise, agile and dynamic modern sportster ride.
From the stunning lightweight cast aluminum 12-spoke wheels to the contemporary paint schemes, even more premium style and detailing was engineered into the Speed Twin. Built with all of Triumph’s timeless DNA and beautiful stripped-back modern custom style, now with anodized headlight mounts, mudguard mounts and contemporary graphics, which complement the Speed Twin’s signature 3.8 gallon fuel tank.
Advanced rider-focused technology for rider safety and enjoyment is sensitively incorporated into the Speed Twin’s clean and minimalist lines. The three riding modes (Rain, Road and Sport) were upgraded for the latest generation Speed Twin with a dedicated throttle map and traction control setting for each mode. Easily switchable via a handlebar-mounted button, should riding conditions or rider mood change, the ideal setting is just a touch away.
Easy-to-read twin clocks with contemporary 3D dial faces feature a huge range of useful information from fuel range to gear position, riding mode setting to service indicator, all easily navigated via a handlebar-mounted scroll button. A handy USB charging port and a built-in immobilizer bring rider convenience, while the latest generation ABS and traction control systems improve safety and rider confidence.
