The Speed Twin sits somewhere between the cafe racer style Thruxton RS, which it shares the High Power version of the 1,200 cc engine with and the everyday Bonneville T120 which features the High Torque version.
Think of it as a slightly sportier and lighter T120 with a taller seat, cool mirrors, more power and a modern exhaust system or simply as a bigger version of the popular Street Twin.
Compared to the 2019-2020 model there's a new beefier and upside down fork from Marzocchi, larger front discs with Brembo M50 calipers and a new 12-spoke wheel design. The engine gets a very small power bump 500 rpm higher up the range and peak torque appears 700 rpm lower down the range.
The 12-spoke 17" wheels take a Metzeler Racetec RR 120/70 tyre at the front and a 160/60 at the rear.
Accessories include the engine bars, knee pads, round bar end mirrors, black / brown quilted seat, machined headlight bezel, Aluminium sump guard, Vance & Hines silencers, heated grips, TPMS, bullet style LED indicators and the general Bonneville parts catalogue.
