The latest entrant into Triumph India’s 2023 model series is the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster. We have already seen Bonneville Bobber in its 2023 avatar, of which the only change is a new colour option. Now, Triumph India has come up with the Bonneville Speedmaster. For this as well, there’s no change as such. However, for 2023, customers will have a new Cordovan Red colour option. The other colour options include Sapphire Black with Fusion White and Jet Black. Like other models from Triumph’s Modern Classics range, the Bonneville Speedmaster got a Euro-5 compliant engine and some more significant updates in 2021. As mentioned, in the 2023 update, we only get to see a new colour option for the motorcycle.
2023 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster – Colours & Prices
Of all the three, Cordovan Red is the new addition. All these colours are single-tone options. Hence, the colours are more prominent on the fuel tank with subtle blacked-out body parts that provide a contrasting outlook. The Jet Black colour shade’s price tag stands at INR 12.05 lakh (ex-showroom). Meanwhile, for the new Cordovan Red, the price is set at INR 12.18 lakh (ex-showroom). The most premium offering is the Sapphire Black and Fusion White, which retails at INR 12.35 lakh (ex-showroom).
2023 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster – Highlights
The Bonneville Speedmaster is a cruiser bike with a minimalistic look that is widely appreciated worldwide. The double-seater Bonneville Speedmaster uses a more retro-based design language that makes it even more attractive. Based on the platform, as with Bobber, Speedmaster gets a low, stretched-out look. The equipped cantilever rear suspension and pulled-back handlebars further attenuate the motorcycle characteristics.
Apart from the new colour option, the 2023 model retains the same mechanical parts. Thus, the Bonneville Speedmaster uses the same 1200cc liquid-cooled 8-valve SOHC parallel twin engine. Its 270-degree firing order also makes up for the exciting exhaust note. The motor produces 78 PS of peak power at 6,100 rpm. Meanwhile, peak torque of 106 Nm comes in at 4,000 rpm. Triumph also uses a 6-speed gearbox unit with a wet multi-plate, torque-assist clutch.
Suspension and brakes, too, remain exactly the same as the outgoing model. As a part of its 2021 update, Triumph had added higher specification Showa 47mm cartridge forks for the front. At the rear, the Speedmaster continues with the preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. Braking power comes from twin 310mm discs with Brembo callipers at the front and a 255mm single rotor with a Nissin calliper at the back.
