Triumph Speed Twin 2019 with ‘Thruxton’ tune is what was actually missing in the Bonneville family

Triumph Speed Twin 2019 is a revelation like no other. It strikes the perfect balance between design, nippy performance and the legend of Bonnie. This one claims to be sharper and edgier than the softer Bonnies. But at the same time not too extreme as the Thruxton if you know what I mean. Triumph Speed Twin 2019 looks absolutely stunning down to its tiniest detail. Yes, I know, so does the Bobber and Speedmaster, but this is more sublime.speed twin motorcyclediaries

Triumph Speed Twin 2019; Design

Just look at it! Menacing yet classy at the same time. That glorious engine still sits as the centrepiece. But it looks compact too, unlike its bulkier brothers. And Speed Twin will bring in a host of customisation trinkets to makes yours look super unique. The finish on parts is excellent and you’ll get 80+ more to play with as accessories.speed twin motorcyclediaries

Triumph Speed Twin 2019; Performance

Obviously, you cannot ever question the performance of a Triumph. But if you remember the Street Twin left room to be desired. Triumph Speed Twin 2019, however, has a 1200 twin which will push out 95 horses backed by 112 torques. This is what the Thruxton generates, hence sportier output. And is 2.5kg lighter than it as well?speed twin motoryclediaries

Triumph Speed Twin 2019; Electronics

What good is power without thorough control, right? Triumph Speed Twin 2019 has a ride-by-wire throttle with selectable riding modes for a response. A Traction control system keeps everything sane while hard cornering. Clutch lever is light making it easier while negotiating traffic. Those twin clocks are a design feature which happens to deliver crisp details as well. I mean there is a host of telltales gear, throttle mode, distance to empty, TPMS if equipped and a lot more. But all of that in a twin pod classic setup just looks brilliant, and no I’m absolutely no fan of TFTs on motorcycles. Sorry, needles just look right.speed twin 2019 motorcyclediaries

Triumph Speed Twin 2019; Customisation

Okay, it already is a thing of beauty, but Triumph will offer you a ton of goodies to create your own individual Triumph Speed Twin 2019. The sculpted tank and twin silencers are nostalgic, yes, but quilted seats to go with that tank and end pipes as Vance & Hines are a more personal approach. And not just design, there are disc locks and luggage options which provide more function.triumph speed twin motorcyclediaries

I am definitely falling for the Triumph Speed Twin 2019. The Bobber is too much attention, the Speedmaster is too old for my taste and the Street is too less. Triumph Speed Twin is the perfect Twin there can be. A magnificent British twin that looks menacing and ultra-classy at the same time, Christmas is here!
