2021 Triumph Speed Twin Engine Specifications
Powering the 2021 Speed Twin is a characterful Bonneville Twin engine. The 1200cc High Power engine is fully Euro 5 compliant but delivers 100PS of power and 112 Nm of torque. This power performance figure is 3 PS more than the predecessor. The torque also arrives at 500 rpm earlier compared to the predecessor.
The brand has worked on the crankshaft and alternator, making it lighter, resulting in a 17% reduction in inertia. This enables the engine to spin faster and harder for a longer duration.
