2021 Triumph Speed Twin
However, the British brand has tried to keep its iconic look. However, the 2021 Triumph Speed Twin still comes with several new features, including large 12-spoke wheels, dual stainless steel exhausts, anodized headlight and fender mounts. As part of the update, even the fuel tank of the brand new bike receives distinctive graphics.
Three color schemes will be part of the updated Speed Twin palette. To be precise, these are – Jet Black, Matte Storm Gray and Red Hopper.
The Triumph Speed Twin might look retro in terms of design, but deep down it is no less than any modern motorcycle. Technologically, it comes with ABS, switchable traction control, LED headlight with DRL, USB charging socket, engine immobilizer and three driving modes (rain, road and sport) on offer.
According to updates, the 2021 Speed Twin is now available with a 1200cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine that meets the Euro-5 standard. Speaking of numbers, this engine’s horsepower is up to 98.6 BHP at 7,250 rpm compared to the older 96 BHP. Likewise, many of us will expect higher torque delivery from this engine. But in reality, the maximum torque remains the same at 112 Nm.
Finally, the updated bike also gets a 43mm Marzocchi USD fork up front. At the rear, it is still available with classic double shocks. Another update for the 2021MY is the Brembo M50 calipers which are available with two 320mm discs up front and a single 220mm disc in the rear.
