Triumph Motorcycles is going to launch its new classic cruiser, the Bonneville Speedmaster, in India on February 27. The British bikemaker already announced to launch three new motorcycles in the country this year, and the other two bikes will be an 800cc and a 1,200cc model from its Tiger rage of adventurer tourers.
Triumph Motorcycles India already offers two big bikes in its cruiser category — the Thunderbird Storm and the iconic Rocket III (with world’s largest capacity production motorcycle engine) — but the new Bonneville Speedmaster will join the Modern Classics family. Moreover, the existing cruiser range starts at Rs 14.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the upcoming one is expected to be priced around Rs 10 lakh.
Triumph has already confirmed that the company will launch New Generation Tiger 1200 and New Generation Tiger 800 with Bonneville Speedmaster in India. We have also seen the Triumph’s New-Zen Tiger 1200 on the magnificent streets of Morocco. Triumph Motorcycle has introduced the 1200cc high torque Parallel-Twin engine in the new Bonneville Speedmaster. This engine has the capacity to generate 106 bhp power at 6100 rpm and 106 Nm peak torque at 6000 rpm, while the bike’s engine is equipped with a 6-speed giabox.
When this bike will be launched in India, it will be Triumph’s cheapest cruiser bike in the country. It is estimated that the price of this bike in India will be between Rs. 10 lakh and Rs. 11 lakhs. Bonneville Bobber Triumph is the best-selling bike in the world, and the company expects Bonneville Speedmaster to do something similar.
