Credit where it’s due, the Bonneville household needs to be the primary reason that Triumph increased to excellent heights, much like a phoenix increases from the ashes. Over 3,67,000 systems of the contemporary traditional series have actually been offered considering that 2001. When the whole item lineup went through a significant revamp in 2015, the Street Twin became a beloved for those who desired the traditional British twin experience however in a somewhat contemporary avatar.
It has actually considering that gone on to end up being the most popular bike of the lot, offering more systems than any other design up until now. After the mid-life upgrade in 2018, Triumph has actually made the Street Twin a lot better in 2021.
Not a lot really. The Street Twin stays basically similar to the 2020 BS6-compliant design that was offered in India. The small styling tweaks are more of the blink-and-you-miss kind. The cast aluminium rims are machine-finished for a premium touch. There’s a ribbed bench seat with a 10mm thicker seat foam, providing a comfier saddle experience. It has actually increased the saddle height by 5mm (now 765mm), which should not be much of a trouble for much shorter riders.

The side panel has mesh components situated right listed below the Street Twin badging, sort of comparable to the ones discovered on the Speed Twin. The throttle body covers and headlight-mounting components are offered a brushed-metal surface; the previous even has a little black plastic panel nicely incorporated into it.
The Street Twin will continue to be offered in 3 tones: brand-new Cobalt Blue, Matt Ironstone, and Jet Black. The very first 2 colour alternatives likewise get cool grey-and-white striped decals.
Almost whatever else on the bike stays the very same. The 900cc parallel-twin HT motor continues to thump out 65PS at 7500rpm and 80Nm at 3800rpm, peak torque now beginning 100 revs greater. The engine continues to keep up a five-speed transmission, assisted with a slip-and-assist clutch. Electronic rider help are restricted to simply 2 rider modes (Rain and Road), switchable traction control, and dual-channel ABS.
Even the double-cradle chassis, the KYB open cartridge fork, preload-adjustable twin shocks, and the braking hardware have actually been unblemished.
What’s The Price? Who Are Its Rivals?
Triumph India hinted that the 2021 Bonnevilles will strike the dealers April onwards. We think the Street Twin will be the very first bike to show up, offered its appeal amongst the Indian masses. We anticipate a small premium of Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 for the 2021 edition. While there are still no natural competitors for the Street Twin, bikes like the Kawasaki W800 ( have a look at our evaluation here) and the Ducati Scrambler Icon ( which was released subtle updates previously this year) use a rather comparable contemporary retro ambiance.
What’s The ‘Gold Line’?
There’s going to be a brand-new restricted edition of the Street Twin, called the ‘Gold Line.’ Accomplishment will be producing 1000 systems of the bike, a handful of which will ultimately make their method to India. The Gold Line gets a special matte sapphire black paint, with the knee recess completed in a contrasting ivory white. The name ‘Gold Line’ is the ideal fit, considering this alternative gets hand-painted coachlines on the tank and side panels. Plus, the Street Twin and the heritage Triumph logo designs are in gold. To finish the appearance, a gold rim tape exists on the brand-new machine-finished alloy rims.
The Bonneville design might not have actually gotten significant modifications for 2021, however that should not prevent you from getting your hands on this really unique riding experience. The Street Twin’s appeal remains in the method it stabilizes neo and retro ever so delicately. It must be as rewarding a trip as it remained in the BS4 times, so what the traditional British rumble might be a little controlled now.
