History of Speed Twin

Evolution in all its aspects

The first Triumph Speed Twin was designed by none other than motorcycle engineer and designer Edward Turner. Launched in September 1937 and produced in large quantities, this motorcycle with 500 cc engine was the inspiration for all models with twin-cylinder engines of the company Triumph Engineering Co. Ltd. until 1983.

These first Speed Twin were Triumph's first attempt to incorporate a rear suspension, in addition to having its own damping system. His ambitious spirit led him to want to meet the American demand for motorcycles adapted to long-distance racing, for which Turner built a 650cc version of the Speed Twin design, baptized under the name “Thunderbird”.

Whatever their performance, the Speed Twin is, from the very beginning until today, a unique piece of equipment that gives you the opportunity to ride an exclusive motorcycle. Their above-average rating is justified by their powerful sporty performance, enviable comfort and attractive details that give life to a small but mighty motorcycle.
