Written by Nayak

Triumph Motorcycle has introduced its new Gold Line and Special Edition motorcycles in India. Under this, a total of 9 motorcycles will be added to the existing portfolio of 18 motorcycles. And thus, the overall tally of Triumph in India stands at 27 motorcycles. Triumph has put on a sticker price of INR 8,85,000 ex-showroom, for this Street Twin EC1 Special Edition.

Street Twin EC1 Special Edition

This motorcycle gets its name from the iconic EC1 postcode in England. And the special edition draws its inspiration from the vibrant custom-classic motorcycle culture of London’s East End. The Eastern side of London is known for its love of motorcycles. Moreover, this region also has a thriving design community. And the passion for the art of customization is also pretty much visible in this region. With the Street Twin EC1 Special Edition, Triumph wants to pay the tribute.

Street Twin, which is Triumph one of the best selling products, aims to attract more riders to join the Triumph umbrella. The motorcycle, with its rich British character, is one of the top choices in the younger generation. And given the host of customization available, the Street Twin EC1 Special Edition does add to the exclusiveness. Triumph has mentioned this EC1 Special Edition that is available with its unique custom-inspired scheme will go on sale only for a limited period of one year only. 

What Are The Changes In The Special Edition?

The fuel tank gets a beautiful new Matt Aluminum Silver and Matt Silver Ice paint shade. The fuel tank also gets subtle design inserts along with a distinctive Triumph badge. All these reflect on the side panel as well. Matching the body paint shade, both the front and rear mudguards also get a matt aluminium silver finish. Attenuating the looks further are the minimal indicators on the front and rear and an elegant looking rear light.

Mechanicals And Kit

Powering the motorcycle is a latest-generation Euro5/BS6 spec 900cc Bonneville twin engine. The performance figure stands at 65 Ps and 80 Nm. The chassis gets the support of 41mm cartridge forks at the front and adjustable preload twin rear shocks. Braking power comes from a 4-piston Brembo setup. In terms of rider aids, the motorcycle gets ABS and switchable traction control as standard. There are also two riding modes on offer, Rain and Road.

Other key fitments include torque-assist clutch, analogue speedometer, digital tachometer, handlebar mounted scroll button, under-seat USB charger and more. In terms of personalisation, customers have plenty to choose from. Triumph mentioned that the motorcycle has over 120 genuine Triumph accessories. And all these come with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty, just like the motorcycle.
