The Speed Twin offers the same engine performance and handling comparable to the Thruxton R, but with the upright riding position of the Street Twin and sportier mag wheels. You could consider it the more performance-oriented big brother to the Street Twin.
Engineering Cousin to the Thruxton R
We found that the Thruxton R and Speed Twin share much of the same DNA and are able to use many of the same parts, including our British Customs Slip-On Exhausts and Race Headlight Ears. Over the years, we’ve developed kits and accessories to help clean up the fender and tail light areas, as well as offer modifications to the Speed Twin’s handling with our Retro Handlebar Kit.
Later this year we plan to add many more custom Triumph Speed Twin parts to the collection, including tire kits, lighting kits, and seats. We always listen to our fellow riders in the community, so contact us and let us know if there are any parts you’d like to see developed or carried.
