Bonneville Speedmaster Story
Introducing: a truly stunning new British classic custom icon.
The Bonneville Speedmaster is the very latest Triumph launch to make its indelible impression on the motorcycling world. And what an impression.
Combining the raw power in Triumph's Bonneville DNA, the independent nonchalance of the Bobber, and the very best in cruising luxury and technology, the 2017 Speedmaster delivers a distinctive and unmistakably unruffled riding experience for those looking for more touring options from their modern classic motorcycle.
It's a Triumph newcomer, which means this is a high specification bike with confident curves, a deep rich Bobber-style exhaust note, and the kind of superior quality and control you'd expect from the very best cruisers. It is of course fully customisable too, with over 130 accessories to turn your Speedmaster from a stunning rough diamond into your very own dazzling statement.
This latest innovative incarnation of Triumph's Bonneville 1200 engine is a liquid-cooled, 8-valve, 270° crank angle parallel twin, with such a responsive performance that it offers up to 10% more torque at 4,500rpm than even the Bonneville T120. In addition, the Speedmaster is packed with technological trickery including ride-by-wire, two riding modes ('road' and 'rain'), single button cruise control, latest generation ABS with switchable traction control, torque assist clutch, and immobiliser.
You'll also find high performance features from nose to tail; the Brembo front brakes and Nissin rear brake (both with ABS) inspire total control, while hidden rear suspension provides a more self-assured swagger with a more comfortable ride.
That's not all; Triumph's impeccable authentic heritage means that each motorcycle is infused with the kind of style, indulgence, and attention to detail that comes from decades of really understanding what makes a perfect ride. So with the new Speedmaster you don't have 'just' a fuel tank, you have a 12-litre capacity sculpted Bonneville tank. You don't merely have a headlight, you have a full DRL* LED headlight with classic 'nacelle' detailing. And you don't have just an exhaust, you have a twin skin chrome exhaust system with signature Bonneville hidden routing into a cat box.
But don't think that hi-tech means minimal comfort. With a seat height of 710mm this is an exceptional low rider and superior handling whether you elect to travel alone or with passenger, while the swept back beach bars and forward pegs encourage you naturally into a pleasing cruiser-style riding position.
The Bonneville Speedmaster ensures a truly remarkable riding experience, whether you're looking to rumble solo around town or embark on a more adventurous tour with your favourite pillion passenger; both single and twin seat set ups provide equally appealing alternatives.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN...
And to help you get the most from your new Speedmaster, Triumph have developed two 'inspiration kits' to get your customisation started; the 'Highway' kit focuses on the Speedmaster's touring capabilities with a full pannier set, touring screen, extra comfort seat, and additional features designed to maximise comfort. Alternatively, the 'Maverick' kit offers a more rugged stripped-back streetwise look with single seat setup, flat raked out bars, and stylish blacked out details.
The Speedmaster is an exciting new development that represents the very best of Triumph's classic DNA, elegantly combined with a laid-back attitude and riding flair of the very best in classic British custom comfort.
It's a new generation Bonneville, built on authentic Triumph heritage, with all the versatility of a custom cruiser. The new Speedmaster is thrilling, it's versatile, and it's timeless.
