From the outside, the Twin’s engine looks identical to the 1200cc parallel-Twin in the Bonneville and Thruxton models but the Street Twin’s actually only displaces 900cc , making it the entry-level model in the revamped Bonneville line. It has an extra 35cc on the 2015 Bonneville engine but at a claimed 54 hp, it’s actually down about 13 horse from the old engine. The Street Twin makes up for it in torque, claiming 59.0 lb-ft., a 17.6% improvement from the previous engine.
