India-Spec and vs International-Spec Speed 400 – What is Different?

The India-specific Speed 400 weighs 176 kilos wet which is 6 kilos heavier than the international version. Here are the changes…

  • Tyres – Internationally, Triumph is offering the Speed 400 with Metzeler and Pirelli tyres. However, our Indian version is equipped with MRF and Apollo tyres.

  • Wheels – The wheels of the Indian model are also strengthened and are heavier.
  • Other Bits – The weight increase is also because of the regulation – saree guard, engine guard and number plate mounting. The grab rail is also different and adds weight.
  • Sump guard and crash guard are standard on the Indian model
  • The Indian model also comes with slightly wider fenders.
  • Bajaj has also tuned the suspension on a slightly stiffer side for the Indian model that may suit our relatively bad road conditions.
