The Speedmaster is based on the Triumph Bobber platform which is a modified version of the T120’s platform. The motorcycle is powered by the same 1200 HT engine that does its duty on the T120. It develops 77PS and 106Nm — 10 per cent more than the T120. The Speedmaster shares the same frame as the Bobber while other bits on the chassis that include the brakes, suspension and the size of the front wheel are different.
It gets a plethora of features like cruise control, ride-by-wire, full LED headlights, different riding modes and more. ABS and immobiliser are fitted as standard across all variants. There are over 130 custom accessories available through Triumph’s online configurator.
The Speedmaster gets a 16-inch front wheel. It also gets a 310mm twin disc set up (the Bobber gets only one disc) with Brembo callipers up front, and a 255mm single disc with a Nissan calliper at the rear wheel. The suspension has also been uprated with 41mm cartridge damped KYB forks up front and an adjustable (for preload only) monoshock at the rear.
