Priced below Book!!!! 2019 Triumph Speed Twin 1200. This is Triumph’s most successful custom classic, bringing torque-rich Bonneville power, higher-specification equipment for more control & comfort, first-in-class technology, and premium style. The inspirational spirit of the original 1959 Bonneville lives on. Better performing, better looking, and even more fun to ride; everything about the new Street Twin is designed to deliver maximum riding enjoyment. Thumbing the starter, the Speed Twin roars to life with a deep rumble. Here’s a stock exhaust that doesn’t make the motor sound like it’s been sucking helium. The 1,200cc engine is in the same state of tune as the Thruxton’s (low-inertia crank, high-compression ratio), but features a new clutch assembly with reduced rotating mass, magnesium cam covers, and lighter side covers that shed 5.5 pounds from the engine alone. Overall, the Speed Twin is an impressive 22 pounds lighter than the Thruxton. Let that sink in. There’s plenty of power from down low in the rev range with a progressive build to peak power output at 6,750 rpm and peak torque at only 4,950 rpm. Practically, it means you can short-shift the thing all day long and pass cars without second-guessing yourself or wasting time kicking down through the gearbox. Leave the thing in fifth or sixth, grab a fistful of throttle and things happen with wonderful immediacy. Twin gauges with in-set LCD screens display all the necessary info. The Speed Twin has three ride modes (Sport, Road, Rain), which each have different throttle maps and levels of traction control intervention. TC can also be turned off. Triumph did a good job of streamlining the system with one-button adjustability to get on with the business of riding. As we’ve come to expect from Triumph, the Speed Twin’s fit and finish is industry-leading. From aluminum mud guards to hand-painted coach lines around the tank graphics, the Speed Twin exudes thoughtful quality. It’s a timeless-looking motorcycle that will have you pouring yourself a pint of bitter and absconding to the garage to revel in the glow of its gloss black paint. ---------Riding the Speed Twin, you get the sense that Triumph’s designers, engineers, and test riders wanted to build something that would resonate on a bone-deep level where sound and speed feel as necessary as the air that fills your lungs. I think they succeeded. Note, The pictures have a black spot on them, this makes the side covers look like it has a big black stot on them, it is my camera, I have a new on on order!!!
