Soon after renaming the Street Twin to Speed Twin 900 and introducing new colour options internationally, Triumph brought the bike to the Indian market. The brand has launched the 2022 Speed Twin 900 in India at INR 8.35 lakh ex-showroom. The new names now come in handy in further defining the model. Previously called the Street Twin, Triumph has now made it a part of the Speed Twin family instead. Hence, the Speed Twin range now consists of the Speed Twin 1200 and now the Speed Twin 900.
2022 Triumph Speed Twin 900 – Colours & Prices
Apart from the new name, the Speed Twin 900 also gets new colour options. Triumph is offering three colour options for the retro-style motorcycle. These are – Triumph Jet Black, Matte Ironstone and the new Matte Silver Ice. The Matte Silver Ice draws inspiration from the latest Speed Twin 1200 and gets similar silver and yellow graphics.
The pricing of the Speed Twin 900 also depends on the colour option you opt for. The range starts at INR 8.35 lakh ex-showroom for the Triumph Jet Black colour option. At the same time, the other two options, Matte Ironstone and Matte Silver Ice cost INR 8.48 lakh ex-showroom. Thus, compared to Jet Black, they command an INR 13,000 premium.
2022 Triumph Speed Twin 900 – Highlights
When it comes to the design and styling, there are no changes apart from the new colour options. Thus, the model continues to get a round headlight, tear-drop-shaped fuel tank, round-shaped rear-view mirrors and twin-sided exhaust canisters. The Speed Twin also continues to remain an easy motorcycle to ride with its comfortable single-piece saddle and low seat height.
Mechanically there are no changes as well. The Speed Twin 900 uses the same 900cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin motor linked to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine makes 65 PS at 7,500 rpm and 80 Nm of torque at 3,800 rpm. The suspension setup consists of 41 mm cartridge-type forks at the front and twin RSU shock absorbers at the back. The rear also gets preload adjustability. Meanwhile, the braking setup consists of single discs at both ends with a Brembo calliper up front and a Nissin one at the rear.
