This might sound kind of obvious. Between the introduction of the new Moto2 spec bike (and new engine) for the 2018-2019 season and the mule spotted testing in Spain a few months ago, we weren’t so much wondering if the Daytona was making a comeback. We were only left to wonder when. If you’re one of the many interested in getting their hands on one of the most beloved sportbikes in recent years, you will want to act fast: there won’t be many of them.

By aiming the Speed Twin at the space between the T120 and the Thruxton, Triumph filled a natural gap in its model line – and naming structure. For those who find the 2019 Triumph Speed Twin enticing, be of good cheer. It will appear in U.S. dealerships in mid-March for a base price of ,100.

A shameless love letter.

Triumph Unveils Not One But Two New 2020 Rocket 3 Hello Rocket 3, we’ve been expecting you. Oh, you brought a friend! require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); After months of anticipation, we finally get to lay eyes on the production version of the Rocket 3. We knew it was coming and had already had a taste of it back in January when the company released the limited-edition Rocket 3 TFC. This time, we’re getting the version that’s here to stay and won’t run out after a few hundred units.

While I’m able to look back and easily point at the highlights and the dark times of my test riding season, in all the years I’ve been writing about bikes I’ve never been struck by Cupid’s arrow. At least not close enough to the heart to make me seriously consider buying a certain motorcycle. You would think that with all the goodies we get our hands on, the danger of wanting to spend all our money on all the bikes would be a regular occurrence.

Thankfully, I’ve personally managed to Indiana Jones my way out of the Temple of Temptations. Whether it’s the bike itself or the price tag, I’ve always found something that helped me cool off my passions. That was until I rode the new 2020 Triumph Speed Twin. Sorry guys, I tried really hard to be objective about this. There’s no diplomatic or measured way to put this: I absolutely love the Speed Twin. This isn’t a review as much as it is a love letter. 

Bajaj And Triumph Will Officially Ink Partnership Deal In 2020

Bajaj And Triumph Will Officially Ink Partnership Deal In 2020 Those two crazy kids are finally gonna make it work. Triumph and Bajaj have been in seemingly endless talks about combining forces and forming moto-Voltron since 2017. Now, Bajaj executive director Rakesh Sharma told Money Control that the two companies plan to sign a formal contract no later than Q3 of 2020. According to Sharma, all the important stuff has been settled—now it’s just a matter of formal process.

While the original Triumph Speed Twin , initially produced in 1938 as the first-ever parallel- twin in the company’s lineup, brought new levels of performance and handling to the 500cc category—back then, the premium capacity class in British biking—the new 2019 model of the same name strives to do the

From The History Books

The Speed Twin name itself isn’t new. In the late 1930s, the manufacturer introduced the original Speed Twin featuring what Triumph claims was the first successful parallel-twin engine. The Second World War put Triumph’s activities on pause and production of the Speed Twin only resumed in 1947 and ran until 1966, when it was finally put to rest. Fast-forward to 2018 and the Speed Twin made a spectacular comeback.

Triumph unveiled the Speed Twin in early December last year as the lovechild of the Thruxton and the Bonneville. The idea behind its design was to take the elements that make both models so great and combine them into a sort of hybrid. Of course, most of the time when you hear all those fancy words and raving, it can easily be dismissed as marketing fluff. I mean, most of the parts used on the Speed Twin are existing Triumph bits and pieces. The result could have been a water-down Triumph with no real identity. Boy was I caught off guard. 

The 2020 Triumph Street Triple Is Getting An Updated Engine

The 2020 Triumph Street Triple Is Getting An Updated Engine We finally know what the test mule spotted was hiding. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); If you thought Triumph was hard at work preparing the new Scrambler and Speed Twin last year, you haven’t seen anything yet. This year, it looks like the company is working overtime if the flock of new bikes that were spotted is any indication. From the Rocket to the Tiger to the Daytona to the Thruxton R Black , Triumph is about to one up itself in terms of productivity.

The Numbers

The good-natured twin is ready to give you as little or as much juice as you want. It doesn’t want to throw you off the saddle nor does it want to bore you out of your mind: the throttle input is supple and precise enough to give you the right amount of going power. There’s no need to continuously fiddle with the throttle to maintain a constant pace but keep in mind that the engine braking is quite torquey. Releasing the throttle will slow you down considerably—a little quirk that’s easy to get used to and use to your advantage. 

The Speed happily cruises along at highway speeds and then leaps into action as soon as you open fire, even at low rpm. Don’t be fooled by its looks: it can most definitely go and it can go fast. The power is there and surprisingly flexible. In addition, the 1200cc is a low-revving engine with a redline set around the 7,000rpm mark. The thumping it produces keeps undesirable vibrations at a minimum, making it comfortable for longer periods of time.

Speaking of thumping, the note that emanates from the dual tailpipes is a real treat. The deep purr of the well-balanced engine creates music that made my insides all tingly. Think of a sailor visiting Sirens Island, except for the part where I tie myself to the mast. I kept looking for opportunities to open the throttle, increase the rpm, and listen to the engine sing.  

Quick Ride: 2019 Triumph Street Twin

Quick Ride: 2019 Triumph Street Twin Good things come in small packages. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Despite Triumph's long, fabled history in the motorcycle world, I had never ridden a Triumph before. Fortunately, it's demo season and National Powersports Distributors was holding a Triumph demo day, so I decided to educate myself in the wonderful world of fine British motorcycles.

Then this new 2020 Triumph Speed Twin could be perfect for you! It has 5 miles, and You can own it today for 12200 dollars. This Triumph Speed Twin may not be available for long. Located in Roseville, California, visit, email, or call AS Motorcycles at 1-916-250-0871.

The 2019 Triumph Speed Twin is the latest addition the British marque's successful 'Modern Classic' line up, which makes some large claims to potential

The braking power matches the bike’s personality well. It’s efficient and responsive, unlike other models where the brake pedal feels like stepping on a loaf of bread and the pads gently hug the rear-wheel into submission. I like to feel that my actions to slow the bike down actually do something. 

Once you hit the city, the Speed’s small waist makes the bike easy to handle in an urban setting. The 31.8-inch seat height also makes the reach to the ground accessible and comfortable—my 5’8” self easily flat-footed the bike on each side. 

Modern Comforts

The riding stance is comfortable. The angle in the saddle tips the rider slightly forward, making the handlebar easy to reach without having to put too much weight on the hands. The footpegs are positioned toward the back, but the distance from the saddle means a nice close-to-90-degree angle in the knees ensures prolonged comfort. After an hour and a half in the saddle, my bottom started to get tired before my knees did.

While I’m not usually a fan of taking a passenger on a bike—a personal preference—I decided to leave the city behind and head for the countryside with a partner in crime for a few hours of joyriding. The engine worked a little overtime to haul our combined weight but did so pretty elegantly. It might not be the ideal passenger bike, especially in the absence of proper grips, but if you’re happy having your passenger hug you, know that it is perfectly doable. 

The one flaw I found with the Speed Twin is the position of the cylinder heads in relation to my knees. While the gas tank has convenient knee dents, the riding geometry actually positioned my joint a bit lower on the frame. I regularly found myself squeezing the top of the engine with my knees, which is an unsettling feeling. Combine that with the impressive amount of heat produced by the block and you get a nice BBQ-like experience when stuck in traffic under the hot August sun. 

Did I Mention I Love It?

At this point, how could I not be in love with the bike? It checks off pretty much all the boxes on my personal “perfect bike” list and more. I wanted to like the Speed Twin, but I didn’t expect to love it. The worst (best) part? It’s not even that expensive. The 2020 Speed Twin is priced at $12,200. When you consider that Triumph didn’t get too greedy, this leaves very little for me to say to try and convince you of how good the bike is. I know, I’m gushing. I hate it. It’s hard not to.
