Triumph Speedmaster Bike Overview
You’ll find you get a lot of bike for your money with the Triumph Speedmaster. Although it’s a junior cruiser, it doesn’t feel like it’s lacking in any way. For instance, it’s not underpowered and doesn’t feel cheap when you’re riding it. Sure, the wheels can look a little budget, but this doesn’t put us off. It has a lot of appeal overall, and would suit someone not bothered about the higher specs.
This bike gives you non-adjustable front forks with twin shocks on the rear. The bike has a total weight of 250kg so it’s not the best for handling. You won’t want to ride pillion on this bike either. It can be a little uncomfortable to ride if you’re on a rougher road with some potholes. However, the 60bhp Bonneville parallel twin engine is supported by 53ftlb of torque, so it has enough punch to get you going.
You can rely on the brand of this bike. These bikes can keep going for years, as long as you look after them with regular servicing. All of this in a bike and you can pick it up for around £7k- which really is a lot of bike for your money. It is a competitively priced model that is honest and reliable.

Trip to Belgium no problems, comfortable no aches.Single seat so don't know what pillion comfort is like.
Never broke down,just usual consumables,brakes clutch,chain,same as any bike, regular services,oil and filter,no problems.
Good enough, fitted braided lines.
Not heavy easy to ride corners well enough for the type of bike it is.
Rides as it should, it's not a sports bike,it gets up to speed limit quick enough and will do it all day long.
Did over 50 mpg on Belgium trip,40+normal riding.
Love this bike, ride handles well just have to remember the ground clearance on tight bends
Tried and tested Bonneville engine torque and response first class
Gel seat as standard
Typical of Triumph to build a quality bike
Stops on a sixpence for those of you that knows what one is
Having problems with water getting into electrics.
Great handling for a cruiser, doesn't feel heavy. Engine is very smooth. Rear shocks are terrible over bumps very harsh.
Engine is smooth and torquey if not hugely powerful. Definitely needs 6 gears.
Broken down after picking it up from the dealer! Turned out to be a small issue however it took two weeks to locate the issue. No problem since. Indicator connectors are very exposed to rain and require regular cleaning. I ride everyday and the finish is standing up so far.
Adequate for normal riding.
