That might be the new Speed Twin. Only new Bonneville 'like' ride in Triumph's line up that fits that description.
Dedicated frame and tune to the Thruxton engine that makes it unique and not really a Bonnie, but it's own bike.
Is that the bike you were thinking about?
The reports are coming in . 20 or 30 lbs lighter, some magnesium parts, brakes and suspenders good but not R standard, R motor, excellent fit and finish, reasonably priced , all day riding position, will certainly steal some Thruxton sales. Looks like a winner .
Yesterday, at the weekly BS session at my HD/BMW dealer a friend said there is a new limited edition Thruxton with more HP coming out. He pulled up a picture off the internet. I will be going to the Chicago MC show next month & hope Triumph at least has a speed twin on display.
Cycle World says 106 HP & 10pounds less than the current Thruxton R which puts it below 440 pounds. Limited production and probably pricing above $17,000. It has a titanium V&H exhaust system which I would guess accounts for the 10 pounds less weight. The fork is a Ohlins. Since I have as much HP at the rear wheel as they are claiming at the crank and the bike already handles better than I can ride I think I will stick with what I have. If I were buying a new Triumph it would be a T-120 with a lower bar conversion.
