Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster India Launch LIVE Updates Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster India Launch Highlights

Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster India Launch Highlights: The all-new 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster cruiser has been launched in India at a price of Rs 11.11 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The new Speedmaster is highly based on the Bonneville Bobber that Triumph launched last year in the Indian two-wheeler market. Both motorcycles share their motor with the Triumph Bonneville T120 that comes powered by a 1200cc, Twin-Cylinder motor. The Speedmaster’s design is what you would get if you fused design cues from a classic British cruiser with the Hanging-Ape style cruisers from America. What really sets the new 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster apart from rest of the Bonneville cruisers is the fact that that the Speedmaster gets a pillion seat and more laid back and relaxed ergonomics. However, Triumph’s new Speedmaster is so much more than a Bobber with that generous pillion space. The Speedmaster gets a rear seat, rear mudguard as well as chrome grab rails at the rear, but the steering geometry is slightly different with a slightly smaller rake angle. The rider ergonomics are also equally updated courtesy forward set allowing the rider a laid-back riding position. Here are the complete LIVE updates from the new 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster India launch event that is currently taking place in New Delhi.
