The 2022 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster gets a more responsive motor with additional midrange power from the vertical-twin 1200HT engine. The powerplant also meets Euro 5 emissions standards. Additionally, a new Showa 47mm cartridge fork replaces a 41mm unit, so the front end of the newest Speedmaster should have a noticeably better feel in the corners, as well as enhanced stability.The Speedmaster’s dual seat also gets an upgrade. The rider’s seat now has specific lumbar support, and the passenger seat boasts nearly a half-inch more padding. The passenger can be removed when not being used, and an accessory rack can be installed in its place. Due to the accommodations for a passenger, the Speedmaster’s Showa shock has spring-preload adjustability to set the ride height properly.
Triumph redesigned the analogy-style single clock, giving it a new dial face and bezel. There’s also a tasteful Bonneville badge on the bezel. Nearby is a new all-LED headlight.The 2022 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster will be available in three colors. The standard Jet Black will run $13,150, with the price jumping to $13,450 for the Red Hooper version, and $13,650 if you like the two-tone Fusion White/Sapphire Black color scheme.We have tested the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster.2022 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster SpecsENGINE
