Latest Images Of The Upcoming Triumph Street Twin Confirm The Much-rumored Name Change
The Triumph Street Twin will now become Speed Twin 900 and a similar nomenclature will follow for its stable-matesby Punya Sharma, on
In recent times, there’ve been a lot of rumors suggesting Triumph will change its nomenclature for entry-level Bonneville models. All these rumors have now been confirmed, as images of the 2023 Street Twin have surfaced on the internet revealing crucial information.
2023 Triumph Street Twin Renamed To Speed Twin 900
Posted by a German Triumph dealer on eBay, the images of the bike show an updated side panel that gets a “Speed Twin 900” badge replacing the existing model’s “Street Twin” badge. Not only does this confirm the new name but also hints at a new nomenclature in the Bonneville family with the engine capacity at the end. Accordingly, Triumph will rename the Street Scrambler to Scrambler 900 while the Speed Twin will become the Speed Twin 1200.
Coming back to the 2023 Street Twi…sorry, Speed Twin 900, it also dons a new Matt Silver Ice livery with a neon stripe to set it apart from the 2022 model. Besides these, there seem to be no changes and you can expect it to continue pumping out 64 horsepower from its 900cc, twin-cylinder engine while rolling on 18/17-inch alloy wheels. Official confirmation for these specs will follow suit, especially now that the bike has started reaching dealerships.
What Does This Mean For Triumph?

Thinking what’ll happen to Triumph’s “Street” moniker? Well, by the looks of it, the British bikemaker will use the now-free “Street” name for its upcoming entry-level, single-cylinder models. To jog your memory, these models will be the fruits of the Bajaj-Triumph partnership and Triumph has already started road-testing its 300-400cc models.
The arrival of Triumph’s new “Street” model is still afar, though, and they will probably hit the stores by early next year. Before that, Triumph is all set to take the wraps off its first-ever electric bike, the TE-1, on July 15, so gear up for that.
