It’s official, the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster is set for its global debut on the 3rd of October 2017. The confirmation from Triumph on this score came in the form of a tweet, which confirmed that the British manufacturer would launch the Speedmaster. The tweet was followed by a sneak preview video of the new Speedmaster. The new bike which is set to launch globally in October confirmed for India as well. Which means we can expect it within three months of the launch. This launch will also be a platform to inaugurate a new visitor centre at the company's headquarters in Hinckley, UK.

Currently, Triumph already has the Speedmaster and the America models for global markets, but these were never offered on sale in India prior to this. However, with this upgrade Triumph intends to debut their Speed mater in India as well. Beefing up their already extensive portfolio. We expect that the Speedmaster will bear the underpinnings of Triumph's new Bonneville Bobber launched in March this year. To further our suspicions, we spotted a Triumph Cruiser going on tests in Spain earlier this year. Sans the camouflage this could easily be Triumph’s new SpeedMaster.

Rumour has it that while in previous generations, the Speedmaster was powered by Triumph’s 865cc air-cooled engines, however, it is likely that the new Speedmaster will get the T120s new 1200cc parallel twin-engine. In India however, Triumph is yet to specify when exactly they will be bringing the new cruiser but have confirmed wholeheartedly that it will be a part of their portfolio. We expect it to be priced at around the 10 lakh mark.
