TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE SPEEDMASTER LAUNCHED IN INDIAPosted On: February 27, 2018 By : AutoLife Team
Triumph Motorcycles has launched the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster in India. The Bonneville Speedmaster is Triumph’s least expensive cruiser and extends the hugely popular modern classic range with the introduction of a cruiser.Powering the cruiser is the same 1,200cc parallel-twin powerplant seen on the Bobber, which delivers 77hp at 6,100rpm and peak torque of 106Nm at 4,000rpm. In comparison, the Bonneville T120’s motor pumps out 80hp and 105Nm of torque whereas the Thruxton R’s engine produces 97hp and 112Nm of torquw. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Talking about electronics, the Speedmaster features two power modes (Road and Rain), switchable traction control, ride-by-wire, and is also the first Bonneville motorcycle to get Cruise Control.Its fuel tank capacity has also been bumped – from the 9.1-litre tank seen on the Bobber – to a 12-litre tank, for better range, while touring. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock which is adjustable for preload. Stopping power is provided by 310mm twin disc front brakes setup with two twin-piston Brembo callipers and a single 255mm dia disc at the back, while ABS is standard. The Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster will compete in the cruiser segment with the likes of the Harley-Davidson Street Bob and even the Indian Scout Sixty.
