Look at this Speed Twin 1200!! It looks like NEW!!!!
2019 Speed Twin- Triumph’s 2019 Speed Twin is more than just a comfier Thruxton. Taking the best bits from the raciest of their retros and laidback roadsters, its fast, fun, all-day-comfy, easy to manage and with its suspension and braking hardware, it has the ride quality, poise and stopping power of a Street or Speed Triple. The Speed Twin is classy, and affordable, a retro bike that its rivals will struggle to keep in their sights.
So, what’s new for 2019? Quite a bit – some changes you can see, and some you can’t. The most noticeable tweak from the first model is the upside-down forks – chunky 43mm Marzocchi items, – and fitted with posh Brembo radial calipers biting big, 320mm discs. The wheels are new style too, – 12-spoke lightweight aluminum rims. A reworked 'High Power' 1200cc parallel twin-cylinder Thruxton lump provides the Speed Twin's beating heart and darkly gruff soundtrack. Making 96bhp to the crank, the Speed Twin delivers supersport punch when you dial in the revs, but there's so much grunt, delivered from almost tickover, it’s more rewarding to use lazy gears in the corners and surf the Triumph’s great wave of torque on the way out. There’s traction control (switchable) and three-way riding modes – Rain, Road and Sport. All three deliver full power, so it’s just the delivery and throttle response that vary. The lighter engine internals help the motor spin up more quickly and you can really feel the difference. It’s still got the grunt to be able to pull hard from low down, although perhaps it feels a little harsher than before without the extra crankshaft mass to damp down vibration, but let it spin just a bit higher – – and it really drives, perfect for slingshotting between bends on these twisty roads. This one is super clean and it only has 4,279 miles on it!!1 It has been fully serviced, and it is ready to ride!!!
