    An award-winning motorcycle, the Speed Twin has been a great success and a customer favourite.

    Higher Performance

    Significantly updated for 2021, the Speed Twin’s characterful 1200cc High Power Bonneville twin engine now has even higher performance, as well as lower emissions, making it fully Euro 5 compliant. The engine now delivers 3PS more peak power with 100PS at 7,250rpm, plus more power in the mid-range than the previous generation. 

    Alongside the incredibly strong and linear power delivery, the 2021 Speed Twin also has a fuller torque curve, with peak torque of 112Nm arriving more than 500rpm lower down the rev range compared to the previous generation.

    SpeedTwin_Details10.thumb.jpg.c89e5c5c98bbfb259b0cfc38d806251e.jpg

    The responsiveness of the Speed Twin engine has also been enhanced, thanks to a 17% reduction in inertia obtained via a new lightweight crankshaft and alternator. These enable the engine to spin up faster than the previous generation, and rev harder for longer, with a red line now 500rpm higher than before. In addition, new high compression pistons, revised ports and a new cam profile complete the list of performance enhancements.

    The distinctive sound of the Bonneville Twin is amplified by the new brushed stainless steel megaphone twin upswept sports silencers, that have been carefully crafted for a deep, throaty roar to match the Speed Twin’s legendary name. The innovative and uninterrupted exhaust header run cleverly conceals the catalyst box, delivering the characteristic clean-line “straight-run” design.

    As with all of the models in Triumph’s Modern Classic range, the cost of ownership is kept low thanks to the high first major service interval of 10,000 miles / 16,000 kilometres.

    Better Handling

    Already acknowledged for its superb, sure-footed comfortable handling, the new generation Speed Twin benefits from a number of significant upgrades for an even more precise, agile and dynamic ride. 

    New for 2021, the Speed Twin comes equipped with higher specification upside down 43mm Marzocchi front forks with cartridge damping, bringing a more confidence-inspiring and comfortable ride with 120mm wheel travel. These are perfectly matched to the twin rear suspension units with adjustable spring preload, and 120mm rear wheel travel, both precisely tuned for even better handling and the perfect modern roadster ride.

    SpeedTwin_Details4.thumb.jpg.549218d3c5f391883e813889cbecf0f5.jpg

    Further enhancing the new generation Speed Twin, braking performance is improved with new higher specification Brembo 4-piston M50 radial monobloc front brake calipers and twin 320mm Brembo discs. Alongside the Nissin 2-piston floating rear caliper with 220mm disc, and ABS fitted as standard, these deliver a stronger initial braking-bite, more feel and better fade characteristics. 

    Ensuring incredible grip, precision and high-speed stability, new Metzeler Racetec RR tyres are fitted as standard for the 2021 model, along with new cast aluminium wheels, 17” on both front and rear, with a lightweight 12-spoke design.

    A beautifully balanced motorcycle, the Speed Twin brings an intuitive and confidence-inspiring ride. The ergonomics are perfectly proportioned with an accessible 809mm seat height, a slim stand over width, tapered handlebars and a comfortable roadster foot-peg position, which are 38mm further forward and 4mm lower than the Thruxton, providing the rider with a more relaxed riding position.

    Enhanced Technology

    The new generation Speed Twin is packed with rider-focused technology, including a sophisticated ride-by-wire system that ensures precise throttle control and enables three riding modes: Rain, Road and Sport. These have been enhanced for 2021, adjusting both the throttle response and traction control settings to suit the rider’s preference. The riding modes can be changed at the touch of a button while on the move, to respond to any change in riding conditions, maximising rider confidence and safety. The rider can also choose to switch the traction control off independently through the instrument menu.

    SpeedTwin_Details.thumb.jpg.68da8a42e57ba44189a16f4d8c68dd85.jpg

    The bike is also equipped with an LED rear light and indicators, and, where market legislation permits, the signature LED Daytime Running Light (DRL) is incorporated into 
    the headlight. 

    The contemporary 3D clocks incorporate a digital menu system accessed by the scroll button mounted on the handlebar. This provides the rider will all of the key information, including gear position, two trip settings, fuel level and range-to-empty, as well an average and current fuel consumption, access to traction control settings and TPMS indicator if fitted as an accessory. 

    SpeedTwin_Details2.thumb.jpg.a5dc261b0db1aa908e54cce95ddb4f1a.jpg

    Other rider focused technology includes an under-seat USB charging socket, an accessory Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and an immobiliser with transponder integrated into the premium Triumph branded key.

    More Premium Style and Detailing

    In addition to the new 12 spoke cast wheels and twin upswept sporty silencers with brushed stainless-steel headers, the Speed Twin is characterised by its signature-shaped 14.5L tank with knee indents, beautiful bar end mirrors, sculpted side panels and stylish bench seat. 

    SpeedTwin_Details9.thumb.jpg.a2498664252c19b209146cd59234b822.jpg

    Premium details and finishes are harmonised across the bike, including brushed aluminium front and rear mudguards with new mounts, plus brushed aluminium side panel finishers and heel guards. Additional premium touches and details can be found in the new anodised headlamp mounts to compliment the painted headlamp bowl, classic Monza fuel cap and clear anodised aluminium swingarm.

    For 2021, the Speed Twin is available in three paint schemes: the new vibrant and lustrous Red Hopper scheme, the sophisticated Matt Storm Grey with subtle yellow accents, or the timeless Jet Black. 

    The Genesis of a Motorcycle Icon

    Changing the face of motorcycling, the original 1938 Triumph Speed Twin, with the world’s first successful parallel twin engine packaged into a game changing chassis, was a revelation to ride. Its smooth dynamic handling and superb responsive feel established Triumph as the number one motorcycle marque globally for performance and handling, setting the template for all that followed, and earning a global reputation for being the first real ‘riders bike’.

    SpeedTwin_6.thumb.jpg.d02f68d1026dd6260d3dbe0b353e99dc.jpg

    For 2021, the new Speed Twin sets the benchmark all over again for its balance of torque-rich performance, agile and dynamic handling, and stunning contemporary custom motorcycle design and character.

    50+ Custom Accessories

    The 2021 Speed Twin is the perfect platform for personalisation with over 50 custom accessories that riders can add to enhance the style, practicality and security of their bike. These range from multi-function LED indicators, to quilted seats and luggage, knee pads, engine embellishers, head bolt covers, sump plates, heated grips and many more.

    SpeedTwin_Details5.thumb.jpg.63cf1a51b9360dabf05f2ed805b8b0aa.jpg

    All genuine Triumph accessories have been designed and developed alongside the bike itself, to the same exacting standards, to ensure perfect integration and excellent durability, and all come with the same two-year unlimited mileage warranty.

      Triumph Motorcycles has recently revealed the all new new Triumph Tiger Sport 660 ADV tourer to the media globally via a virtual press conference (C*VID right?) - At first glance, the bike is quite a departure from the current Tiger’s design philosophy with a sharp and sporty-looking half-fairing that holds twin LED headlights. The fuel tank has grown larger to 17 litres — from the 14 litres in the Trident — and the bike gets a new digital display with a small colour TFT section. Overall, a marked improvement from models of previous years.

      The motorcycle is expected to arrive in Singapore sometime in 2022 and will be distributed exclusively through Triumph's agent in Singapore - Mah Pte Ltd. The Triumph brand in Singapore has long been held in great regard with the camaraderie amongst Triumph riders strong enough to keep bikers in the family - and the fact that Triumph motorcycles evoke a sense of emotion in you that you'd be hard press to find in other marques is just the icing on top of the cake. Fundamentally, Triumph bikes have always been quality and rider focus first, and that recipe has been working for them for many years.

      The side and tail angles are more familiar to the Trident, but the bigger fairing will give the Tiger Sport 660 a stronger sense of presence. There are three colour combinations available — Lucerne Blue and Sapphire Black, Korosi Red and Graphite and a minimalist Graphite and Black option.
      Features wise, the Tiger Sport 660 gets self-cancelling indicators, dual-channel ABS, switchable traction control and two riding modes — Road and Rain. Triumph says there are over 40 homologated accessories, including specially designed panniers and a large top box.

      The Tiger Sport 660 uses the steel main frame from the Trident, but the subframe is now different to accommodate the extra load that this bike is designed to carry. The swingarm is a little longer as well and the wheelbase has gone up by 11mm. Triumph says that the seat has been redone for better comfort. The bike has a seat height of 835mm.
      The Tiger Sport 660 gets 150mm of suspension travel at both ends, compared with 120mm and 133.5mm of front and rear travel on the Trident.

      The suspension components are made by Showa, with a non-adjustable 41mm USD fork and a pre-load adjustable shock with a remote preload adjuster. The rest of the chassis components, including the 17-inch wheels, Nissin brakes and Michelin Road 5 tyres are shared with the Trident.
      The 660cc three-cylinder is nearly identical to the Trident and produces the same 81hp and 64Nm. The internal gear ratios and final drive ratio are untouched, but Triumph says there are some small differences in the overall tuning for this application. As with the Trident, the six-speed gearbox can be optioned with an up/down quick-shifter.

      The Tiger Sport 660 wrapped in Triumph Camo prior to the release
      Here are 10 facts about the Tiger Sport 660 to get you up to speed on the 2022 model and expect a full review to follow when the motorcycle arrives in Singapore:
      The 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is street-focused. Like the Tiger Sport 850 before it, the Tiger Sport 660 has 17-inch street tires—that seals the deal as far as off-road capability goes. This is a pure street-going motorcycle with adventure styling, which includes a bit more suspension travel and taller seat height to enhance your view of the world as you tour or commute.

      The Tiger Sport 660 gets the same motor as the Trident, and in the same tune. That means an identical 80-horsepower peak delivered at 10,250 rpm, and maximum torque output of 47 ft-lbs at 6250 rpm.
        Touring bona fides come from integrated mounts for panniers. Although the side cases are an accessory, the Tiger Sport 660 comes from the factory with mountings integrated into the rear subframe. A 52-liter top box is also optional, and it will swallow up two full-face helmets.
        The 4.5-gallon fuel tank and estimated fuel consumption of 44 mpg work out to a range of just under 200 miles. That’s a decent number for a touring bike and for trips up North for when the border opens!


        Michelin Road 5 tires are all about long wear and high-performance in the wet. When you’re touring, you never know when the weather will come after you, so Triumph slipped a pair of tires on the Tiger Sport 660 that can handle inclement weather.
        Showa handles the longish-travel suspension. The Showa suspension on the 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is on the basic side. The fork is non-adjustable, though of the inverted persuasions with cartridge internals. The shock allows remote hydraulic adjustment of spring preload, plus rebound damping adjustment. Wheel travel at both ends is just under six inches—long for a street bike, modest for ADV.

      With the longer suspension travel comes a higher seat height. The Tiger Sport 660’s seat is 32.8 inches above the pavement—a bit higher than a Tiger Sport 850.
        The windscreen can be adjusted with one hand while riding.


        The electronics suite on the Tiger Sport 660 includes two power modes, switchable traction control, and a ride-by-wire throttle, plus a TFT display to monitor it all. There’s also a slip-and-assist clutch, though no quick-shifter. The My Triumph system, which coordinates your smartphone and the Tiger Sport 660, is optional but does not have support for Singapore / Malaysia mapping at the moment.
        Availability of the Tiger Sport 660 should be sometime in 2022 and we will advise on OTR pricing closer to the date. If you want to express interest and place your reservation - Check in with Mah Pte Ltd, details are at the start of this article.

      Celebrating the partnership between two British icons, Triumph are pleased to announce a stunning new limited edition motorcycle inspired by the incredible Tiger 900 Rally Pro, which features in amazing stunt sequences in the forthcoming 25th James Bond Film, No Time To Die.

      Just like the Bond films, Triumph Motorcycles brings a well-established and instantly recognisable British authenticity, fashioned and proven over time.

      With a long and illustrious history in designing, developing, and manufacturing premium motorcycles with exceptional levels of performance, capability and handling, Triumph provided the James Bond stunt team with the perfect fit for the key action sequences in Bond’s latest outing, through the incredibly capable Tiger 900’s and Scrambler 1200’s.

      Lee Morrison, No Time To Die stunt coordinator: “The Tiger 900 is the most confidence-inspiring bike, it allows you to really push the ride as far as you want, you can take as many liberties as you want; stand up sideways drifting in third gear, slow wheelie it, slide it Supermoto-style.  I honestly think it’s one of the best bikes I’ve ever ridden, it’s fantastic.”
      Limited Edition
      Strictly limited to just 250 motorcycles, the new Tiger 900 Bond Edition celebrates the iconic British partnership between James Bond and Triumph.
      Each of these stunning motorcycles are individually numbered and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.

      Desirable, Distinctive and Sophisticated
      The Tiger 900 Bond Edition features a unique and eye-catching Matt Sapphire Black paint scheme and 007TM graphics, enhancing the bike’s stand-out look and premium style and making this a truly unique and desirable motorcycle.

      Each motorcycle also comes with a premium, billet machined handlebar clamp, with the bike’s unique limited edition number.
      Finally with the unique styling details, the Tiger 900 Bond Edition includes premium ‘blacked out’ detailing throughout. The frame, headlight finishers, side panels, sump guard, pillion footrest hangers, auxiliary lamp shrouds and engine guards all have a premium, black finish.

      Premium detailing and equipment
      Enhancing the Bond Edition theme, the new limited edition Tiger 900 features an exciting bespoke 007TM start up screen animation and heated rider and pillion seat, crafted with unique Bond Edition branding.

      Along with all of the Tiger 900 Rally Pro’s category-dominating specification the new limited edition also comes with an additional pair of high performance Michelin Anakee Wild handbook approved off-road tyres (in addition to the factory fitted Bridgestone Battlax tyres), and a premium Arrow Silencer, which features a lightweight brushed stainless steel body, with a carbon end cap and strap.

      Triumph has recently expanded its popular Speed Triple range with the introduction of the 1200 RR - which was unveiled to journalist just 2 weeks ago. What Triumph brought to the fair was hands down on of the most impression launches in recent times - with a big part of that awe coming from just how jaw-dropping the 2022 Triumph Street Triple 1200 RR looked. Dare we say, this could be one of the most beautiful cafe racers to ever grace our eyes in recent times but without all the traditional niggles and problems of yesteryear motorcycles?

      TRIUMPH Motorcycles are distributed exclusively in Singapore by:

      Mah Pte Ltd

      Bringing a retro feel, the 1200 RR is based upon the Speed Triple 1200 RS which was released earlier in the year. The two share the same 178bhp 1160cc triple engine, but the RR takes a slightly more cafe racer-style approach to looks.
      The most noticeable change between the two motorcycles is the fitment of a single round headlamp, which replaces the twin headlamps on the RS. This is joined by clip-on handlebars, while the footpegs have been moved backwards. Combined, they give a more forward-leaning riding position.

      The RR incorporates Brembo brakes with 320mm discs, as well as lean-sensitive ABS. Adjustable Ohlins suspension is fitted as standard, too. They’re semi-active units, too, which means that they can be adjusted depending on the kind of riding you’re doing. Metzeler Racetec RR K3 tyres are fitted as well.
      All bikes get a full-colour five-inch TFT screen, while Triumph shift assist with up and down quickshifter comes as standard too.

      Here are 10 quick facts to get you antiquated with this latest offering from the British brand:
      1. The big news from a performance perspective is the new semi-active Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension with OBTi (Objective Based Tuning Interface) software. Servo motors for the damping adjustment controlled by constant computer monitoring give the 2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR the pinnacle of street suspension technology. The suspension is adjustable on the fly, and Triumph describes it as “track-derived” with the “performance of a supersport bike.”

      2. The Speed Triple line has been known as a naked upright, but that doesn’t apply to the RR. The RR breaks with tradition, being a faired sportbike with clip-ons. It is a pure café racer.
      3. Even a cursory look tells you that the RR has its own ergonomics. The grips are down a stunning 5.3 inches compared to the naked, upright RS, and moved forward nearly two inches—a huge difference. Triumph also moved the footpegs up and back slightly. It’s a seating position built for speed rather than comfort.

      4. The fairing is upper-only, and is proudly led by a traditional round headlight. It’s not quite as retro and the MV Agusta Superveloce, being wider and more angular at the leading edge.
      5. Although the motor is unchanged, the RR gets higher-spec tires. Triumph is mounting up Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tires on the RR’s cast-aluminum wheels, with Supercorsa SC2 V3 rubber available as an option. That will help harness the 177 horses produced at 10,750 rpm by the DOHC triple, as well as the brutish 92 ft-lbs of torque at 9000 rpm.

      6. Carbon fiber is part of the RR’s upgraded package. The lightweight black stuff is used for various infills—tank, fairing, cockpit—plus the side panels and front fender.
      7. Triumph is using “ultra-premium high-quality” candy paint for the Speed Triple RR. The Red Hopper & Strom Gray is the flashy choice, with the Crystal White & Storm Grey appealing to the sophisticated buyer who will appreciate its gold detailing and pinstriping.

      8. There are a few other RR-specific upgrades worth mentioning. The handlebar clamp is branded Speed Triple. Additionally, the belly pan and seat cowling are color-matched. Don’t worry if you want to ride two-up—the RR included a pillion seat that you can install instead of the seat cowling.

      9. Triumph did a complete reboot of the Speed Triple this year. You will want to know about the Brembo braking system, highly customizable rider modes, the up/down quickshifter, and the full electronics suite (including the My Triumph connectivity system for your smartphone, developed in cooperation with Google and GoPro).

      10. The Speed Triple RR can be fitted with a variety of Triumph accessories. There’s everything from machined billet-aluminum goodies to an anti-theft system to luggage. Oh, and to keep the RR looking good, there are frame and fork protectors, plus a rubber tank pad.
