Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd introduces new 2016 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin starting from RM55,900 (sans road tax and insurance).
- First of the new Bonneville range launched in Malaysia
- Improved new 900cc parallel-twin
- From RM55,900*
Authorised Malaysian importer and distributor of the Triumph Motorcycles brand Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd recently welcomed its latest addition, the highly anticipated 2016 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin.
The classic cruiser Street Twin is the first of the new generation Triumph Bonneville variants to be introduced here in Malaysia. The new generation Triumph Bonneville was introduced globally in October last year with the Street Twin slotted as the range’s entry-level variant amongst its total of five variants.
The 2016 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin is an all-new bike from the ground up as it shares no components and parts with its predecessor. The most crucial update here is its new liquid-cooled 900cc parallel-twin powerplant that develops 54hp and 80Nm of peak torque – a significant improvement from its predecessor.
Also paired with the unit is a new five-speed transmission primed with a slipper assist unit. Triumph claims that the new Street Twin’s powertrain is now 36% more fuel-efficient than its predecessor as well.
The powertrain is encased in a bespoke new chassis design as it rolls on new tyre sizes front and aft. Tyre and wheel sizes now measure 100/90 R18 in front from the previous model’s 110/70 R17 whilst the rear now features a larger 150/70 R17 size – larger than its predecessor’s use of a 130-section here.
Weight has been reduced as well by 11kg with this new Street Twin tipping the scales at just 198kg dry. Seat height stands at a decent 750mm while the rake at 25 degrees and trail at 102.4mm promises improved handling abilities as well.
Notable highlights in the features list include alloy wheels and ABS brakes, with both items primed as a standard feature for the 2016 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin model. Furthermore, all new Bonneville models sees an upgrade to new and more modern LED taillights with this new Street Twin model included. Other notable features include an under-seat USB charging port, as well as a neat and comprehensive LCD instrument display to complement the analogue speedometer unit.
Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd states that it will offer the 2016 Triumph Street Twin with its full range of five paint scheme options – Jet Black, Phantom Black, Matte Black, Silver, and Red – along with the model’s extensive catalogue of over 150 accessories and its three custom ‘Inspiration Kits’ – Urban, Scrambler and Brat Tracker.
Prices for the 2016 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin will start from RM55,900 inclusive of 6% GST without road tax and insurance costs. The new Street Twin is now available for viewing and bookings with Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd in the Triumph Premium Flagship Store located in Petaling Jaya. More information is available online as well via the official Triumph Malaysia website, triumphmotorcycles.com.my.
