Triumph To Resurrect The Bonneville Speedmaster



Triumph UK has released a teaser image on Twitter which points to an imminent unveil/launch of the next generation Bonneville Speedmaster on October 3rd. The original Speedmaster conceived in 1960 was a ‘factory custom’ based on the Bonneville and intended for the States, to take on the likes of Harley Davidson and Indian Motorcycles. The bike sold well overseas and was only recently discontinued due to Euro-IV regulations coming into effect. 


The new model will be based on the new Bonneville lineup. Going by the teaser image, the bike will have slash-cut exhausts, wire wheels and forward foot controls. In fact, there were spy shots of a more laid-back custom based on the Bonneville Bobber and this might very well be the new Speedmaster. We suspect that the ape hanger handlebars and rear seat backrest might be an optional accessory and the bike will come with flatter bars as standard fitment.


We expect the bike to use the Bonneville T120’s 1200cc parallel-twin motor, in keeping with the lineage. This motor in the T120 makes 80PS at 6550rpm and 105Nm of torque at 3100rpm and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. 

As Triumph has been bullish on getting most of its modern classic lineup to India, we expect them to get the Speedmaster here as soon as early next year. We expect Triumph to price the Speedmaster at a premium over the Bonneville T120. When it comes here it should go up against the Harley Davidson 1200 Custom and the Indian Scout.
