Overdrive  reported that the 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster will arrive in India in 2018, along with a wide range of accessories and equipment as is with other motorcycles in the brand. The exact launch date and pricing details have yet to be confirmed.

The 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster looks pretty much like a souped up Bonneville T100/T120 with low pulled back handlebars and lowered seating, making it more comfortable for longer rides. It features the classic British motorcycle looks but adds modern twist with some brushed metal around the engine, while the headlamp and the daytime running lamps get the LED treatment.

You get two seats, but it can easily be converted into a single seater if needed. Adding to light modern design elements, are ride-by-wire technology (two riding modes), ABS, traction control and even cruise control.
