Triumph Motorcycles India has announced that it will launch the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster on the 27th of this month. The brand unveiled the bike in the country at the 2017 India Bike Week in Goa.

The Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster is based on the Bobber, but is designed to be a more practical motorcycle than the Bobber. The booking has already commenced, and the bike is likely to command a premium of INR 1.5 - 2 lakhs over the Bobber. The Bonneville Bobber costs INR 9,56,000 (ex-showroom pan India). The 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster employs the same tubular steel cradle frame as the Bobber. But, Triumph has designed the rear subframe to accommodate a pillion seat and a grab rail as well. The bike comes with a full LED lighting system. For laidback ergonomics, the cruiser employs beach bars and forward-set footpegs.

The Speedmaster employs the same 1200 cc SOHC parallel twin engine with liquid cooling as the Bobber. It generates 77 PS of power at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine mates with a 6-speed transmission with assist clutch. At 12 litres, the bike gets a three-litre bigger fuel tank than the Bobber. Electronics package includes ABS with switchable traction control, ride-by-wire with two riding modes- road and rain, and cruise control.

When launched, it would be the most affordable cruiser motorcycle from Triumph after the Thunderbird family. Notable rivals would be the Harley-Davidson Street Bob, and the Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom.
