The Triumph Speed 400 has a Hybrid spine/perimeter, tubular steel, bolt-on rear subframe with high-quality suspension. Altogether, it provides both a neutral and confidence-inspiring nimble ride. With a seat height of 790mm, this motorcycle gives you a natural riding position. With the feet-down maneuvering, it is suitable for new and experienced riders. 

The bike has a wet weight of 176 kg and is easy to maneuver in the city. Thanks to its wide 814 mm handlebars. Also, the seats are cushiony with premium quality finishing on it.

The front suspension gets 43mm upside-down Big Piston forks with 140mm wheel travel. The rear suspension gets Gas mono-shock.

Tyres & Brakes

The front & rear wheel of Speed 400 is 17 inches with a 10-spoke cast aluminum alloy. The front tyre of the bike is 110/70 R17. The rear tyre is 150/60 R17 (Apollo), providing a perfect city grip.

To stop this beast brakes of this bike have to be good. Therefore, Triumph-Bajaj has nailed it by providing a 300mm fixed disc front brake, a four-piston radial caliper, and ABS. On the rear, it gets a 230mm disc brake with a floating caliper and ABS.

Value for money

Triumph is offering a two-year warranty with unlimited kilometers straightaway. Surprisingly, the Speed 400 service interval is at 16,000 km. Yes, you read it right: the first service of the bike is at 16,000 km; therefore, the running cost of this bike will be very low. About the mileage of this bike, it will give you between 30-35 km per litre. So, it is a bike to consider at a price point of 2.33 lakh from Triumph.

Triumph is going to sell it in its own showrooms; hence, it will be challenging as there are not too many Triumph outlets in India. The manufacturer is significantly working on expanding its outlets. They believe without a doubt that Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X are both going to perform well.
