A legend re-born

Changing the face of motorcycling, the original 1938 Triumph Speed Twin, with the world’s first successful parallel twin engine packaged into a game changing chassis, was a revelation to ride. Its smooth dynamic handling and superb responsive feel established Triumph as the number one motorcycle marque globally for performance and handling, setting the template for all that followed, and earning a global reputation for being the first real ‘riders bike’.

For 2019, the all-new 1200cc Speed Twin re-introduces this illustrious Triumph name to our Modern Classics line-up, setting all over again a new standard in class-leading handling, and delivering a new benchmark for how a modern custom roadster should ride and feel.

The brand new Speed Twin carries all of the contemporary custom style of the Street Twin but adds even more beautiful premium details. It delivers all the power, torque and technology of the Thruxton R, in an even more accessible modern set-up. And, it offers all of the confidence inspiring ride and rider comfort of the Bonneville T120, but with even more engaged ergonomics.

The result, just like its iconic 20th century namesake, is a new performance icon that sets a whole new standard, with the chassis set-up, riding position, braking ability, suspension, and thrilling power delivery of a truly modern roadster.

Class leading handling

The all-new Speed Twin brings a new standard for class leading handling, with a precise, agile and dynamic modern roadster ride, and a confidence inspiring, intuitive feel.

The dedicated new frame developed from the Thruxton R delivers comfortable engaged roadster ergonomics, which combined with the high specification cartridge front forks and twin rear suspension units with adjustable spring pre-load, make for a truly unparalleled ride.

High specification twin Brembo 4-piston axial calipers on the front with twin discs, and a 2-piston floating caliper and single disc on the rear, provide excellent stopping power, complementing the motorcycle’s modern roadster character.

Adding to the confidence inspiring ride, the new Speed Twin also benefits from:

  • 17 inch, lightweight 7 spoke cast aluminium wheels
  • High specification Pirelli Rosso Corsa 3 tyres
  • ABS and switchable traction control as standard
  • Comfortable, upright, engaged riding position 
  • Tapered handlebars and new upper yoke and risers
  • A comfortable new bench seat at a low height of 807mm, making the bike accessible for all riders
  • A significant 10 kilogram weight saving compared to the Thruxton, contributing to its class leading handling.


The modern roadster character comes to life through its 1200cc High Power 8 valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine, specifically updated for the new Speed Twin.

This revised high performance engine features a low inertia crank and high compression head, and is developed from the Thruxton R’s powerplant.

Engine updates include:

  • New magnesium cam cover
  • Revised clutch assembly
  • New mass optimised engine covers

Together these deliver a unique 2.5kg weight saving versus the Thruxton engine. With 97PS peak power @ 6,750rpm, the new Speed Twin achieves an impressive 76% increase over the 2016/17 Street Twin, and 49% more than the 2018 Street Twin.

Additionally the new Speed Twin engine also delivers a strong peak torque figure of 112 Nm @ 4,950rpm - an amazing 40% more than the 2018 Street Twin.

The Speed Twin’s all new distinctive twin upswept silencers, with satin black painted wrap and stainless steel end caps deliver the unmistakable sound of a British Twin, a unique exhaust note that matches its powerful and legendary character – rich, deep and full.

Behind the stylish exterior sits a liquid cooling system, carefully integrated to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving clean emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency. Combined with an extended first major service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000km), this contributes to a reduced overall cost of ownership.

Representative Example, provided for illustration purposes only.

In PCP finance examples, the final payment is optional and is the minimum guaranteed value of the bike (providing the bike isn't damaged or beyond reasonable wear and tear for the age and mileage). 

Your options at the end of a PCP agreement are to either hand the bike back to the finance company, use the bike as a part exchange against a new one or pay the final payment and take ownership of the bike.

In all cases of finance, the motorcycle belongs to the finance house until the final payment is made at the end of the agreement.

PCP agreements work best when you have a low deposit, want to have low manageable monthly payments and intend to part exchange or sell the bike at the end of the agreement.  If you have a significant deposit, can afford higher monthly payments or plan to keep the bike beyond the term of the agreement then a finance proposal based on a regular monthly payment without a deferred final payment may provide the lowest total cost.  We can talk you through all of the options we can offer.
