The 2019 Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin is perhaps lacking in the seat styling and exhaust pipes of the 1938 model but nevertheless it does deliver on the retro looks. I like the silver ice/storm grey colour rather than the red or the black.

Now that some of the reviews have started to come in, the Speed Twins technology may not hold up to its looks?
