The new bike packs the same 1,200cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine. It is a Euro5/BS6-compliant engine that is known to deliver 98.6bhp of maximum power at 7,250rpm and 112 Nm of peak torque. For the record, previously the motorcycle delivered 96bhp.
The new Speed Twin uses 43 mm Marzocchi upside-down front forks that now get cartridge damping. This unit is supported by preload-adjustable twin-sided springs at the rear section.
The braking setup on the motorcycle includes Brembo M50 callipers with 320mm twin discs at the front and a 220mm single rotor with a Nissin-sourced calliper at the rear.
Internationally, the new Speed Twin is offered in three colour options - Red Hopper, Matte Storm Grey, and Jet Black. Expect the same to be also launched in India.
The new 2021 model is likely to be slightly costlier in comparison to the previous model. It may cost somewhere in the starting range of ₹10-11 lakh (ex-showroom).
