It houses a dual-pod semi-digital instrument cluster. The bike rides on 17-inch cast aluminium alloy wheels wrapped in Metzeler Racetec RR tires.
The 2023 Speed Twin 1200 is offered with a 1,200cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that is linked to a 6-speed gearbox with a torque-assist clutch. The motor generates a maximum power of 98.6hp at 7,250rpm and a peak torque of 112Nm at 4,250rpm.
