Triumph has revealed two of its latest offerings, the 2018 Bonneville Speedmaster and the Bobber Black. Both of which will be India bound next year. The 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster is based on the T120 and offers a more classic design inspired by the classic American cruisers of the 50s and the 60s. The Speedmaster employs the twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 1200cc that also does duty on the Bonneville T120. Triumph states that the Speedmaste gets the same midrange performance as the Bobber, which makes for a 10 per cent gain in torque at 4,500rpm over the regular T120. The other bits that the Triumph Speedmaster shares with the Bobber is the hard-tail-look chassis and swingarm, which we believe adds to the retro classic appeal of this motorcycle. The Speedmaster differs from the Bobber Black with new 41mm cartridge fork and a rear suspension unit with both a dual-rate main spring. The fuel tank size too has been increased for a better range to make it more suitable for those highway runs. Triumph India is yet to confirm an India launch, though we expect the bike to be launched in the country in 2018. Scroll below to see detailed images of the 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster
