2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster First Ride Review

The Bonneville family continues to expand with its 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster. The new Speedmasterbuilds on the Bobber and Bonneville lines to offer a versatile cruiser with a level of refinement and finish that has become synonymous with Triumph’s recent model releases.

Triumph continues to release additional models with its 1200cc “High-Torque” parallel-Twin engine, and it’s easy to see why. The SOHC, 8-valve engine with the 270-degree firing interval is an excellent beating heart to any of these new motorcycles.

Triumph claims 77 hp at 6,100 rpm and 78 lb-ft of torque at 4,000. This power and torque is spread on smooth with a near flawless ride-by-wire system which only seems to have slight abruptness at low rpm during on/off throttle inputs. The 270-degree crank helps emit a low exhaust note that sounds even more appealing as the revs climb.
