A new cruiser is about to hit the motorcycle scene, the 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster, as seen in this teaser video. Touted as the new British icon, the 2018 Speedmaster is set for an October 3 release date at the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience in Hinckley.

From what little can be seen of the motorcycle shown in the video, the Speedmaster will probably carry the current iteration of Triumph’s Modern Classic engine, a parallel-twin in either 900 cc or 1,200 cc displacements, and will join Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber as part of its cruiser range. Spoked wheels and forward-set foot controls are also shown, along with the classic Triumph tank badge.

A good guess will be the inclusion of ABS, which is now mandatory for all European market motorcycles, along with traction control and/or ride modes, which are standard on most of Triumph’s Modern Classic such as the Speed Twin, Street Scrambler and Thruxton R. The previous generation Speedmaster came with an 865 cc parallel-twin closely patterned after American iron cruisers.
