- 2012 Triumph Speedmaster Review

2012 Triumph Speedmaster

Speedmaster. Stripped down hotrod.

Bad boy good looks. Slash cut pipes. Engine cases in black for real attitude. Black cast wheels with machined detail. The Speedmaster. Air-cooled 865cc parallel-twin, 270 degree crank engine. Unique 'hot rod' style. The very essence of low-slung, old-school cruiser re-invented for the demands of today's rider. New for 2011, short guards, big wheels and a totally new feel. Ready to roll if you’re ready to rock.

The Speedmaster has gained a host of updates for 2011 to give a new look and feel to this stripped out street rod.

At its heart, the Speedmaster features Triumph’s distinctive parallel-twin power plant, a unique proposition in a sea of V-Twins.

With a 690mm seat height, the Speedmaster is accessible to even more riders than before, while wider, higher and more pulled back handlebars suit perfectly the bike’s style and give a totally different riding experience to its predecessor.


Fuel Efficiency:

48 MPG City / 59 MPG Highway

Engine:

Air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin, 270º firing interval

Fuelling:

Multipoint sequential electronic fuel injection with SAI

Seat Height:

27.1 inches
