General information about the Triumph Speedmaster

The powerplant strikes a balance between the looks of the iconic parallel-twin engine from the 1950s and the performance afforded by modern engineering. It pushes out a respectable 62 horsepower at 6,800 rpm, and the torque maxes out at 53 pound-feet at 3,300 rpm, which gives the rider plenty of roll-on for passing and plenty of grunt for pulling holeshots from the light. Triumph blacked the engine out and machined the cooling fin edges, drawing the eye to the air-cooled, 865 cc centerpiece.
