Triumph Speed Twin 900 And Scrambler 900 Launched- Price Starts From 9.45 Lakh
The Speed Twin 900 and Scrambler 900 models, which are simply rebadged versions of the former Street Twin and Street Scrambler, respectively, have been formally introduced by Triumph in India. The starting price for both versions stays the same, and the Hinckley-based manufacturer’s decision to rebadge neither vehicle entails any mechanical modifications.
For the model year (MY) 2023, Triumph has rebadged the smaller 900cc modern classic models from its enduring Bonneville lineup to better align them with their larger brothers, the Speed Twin 1200 and Scrambler 1200. One new paint scheme and fresh side panel badging customised to the appropriate models are included with this rebadging move.
Three colours are offered for the Speed Twin 900: Matt Ironstone (Rs. 8.48 lakh), Matt Silver Ice (Rs. 8.35 lakh), and Jet Black (Rs (Rs 8.48 lakh). The Speed Twin 1200’s older sister, the Matt Silver Ice colour option, trickles down to the new Speed Twin 1200 for this year.
Three different colour schemes are also offered for the Scrambler 900: Jet Black (Rs 9.45 lakh), Matt Khaki (Rs 9.58 lakh), and Carnival Red/Jet Black (Rs 9.75 lakh). This year’s Carnival Red/Jet Black paint is brand-new and costs a whopping Rs 30,000 more than Jet Black alone.
Although the Triumph Speed Twin 900 And Scrambler 900 have new badges, their fundamentals are the same as the versions that were replaced and carried the previous name. A 900cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree firing order, producing 64hp and 80Nm of torque, powers both. Although peak output ratings are equal, the Scrambler 900’s engine delivers it a little bit earlier in the rpm range to fit its off-road orientation. Both motorcycles are connected to a 5-speed slipper clutch transmission. A single 310mm disc at the front is paired with a four-piston Brembo calliper that is positioned axially, while the single 255mm disc at the rear is clamped down by a two-piston Nissin calliper. The fuel tanks on both Triumph Speed Twin 900 And Scrambler 900 are the same sizes, at 12 litres.
These two differ greatly in their wheel sizes and construction. The cast-alloy wheels of the Speed Twin 900 have tyre sizes of 100/90-18 up front and 150/70-R17 at the rear. True to its moniker, the Scrambler 900 has spoked rims with a 100/90-19 front wheel and a 150/70-R17 rear tyre. The Scrambler 900 weighs 223kg and has a little taller, yet workable, 790mm seat height, while the Speed Twin 900 weighs 216kg and has a very accessible 765mm seat height.
