We know we’re more into classic Jap and retro Jap bikes than looking at the British stuff, but we rather like the look of the 2019 Speed Twin from Triumph.
Their blurb says that: “…the beautiful new 1200cc Speed Twin reintroduces a legendary Triumph name and sets a new category benchmark for how a custom roadster should ride and feel, with class-leading handling and thrilling performance.”
We clearly can’t comment on all that, but she sure does look rather saucy, featuring such modern touches as Brembo brakes, ABS, switchable traction control, low seat height, 1200cc Bonneville-based parallel twin with around 97bhp, LED lights, slipper clutch and even a USB charging socket!
