Cromwell 1200

RIDE THE NEW OLD SCHOOL.

THREE COLOURS,
ONE OF A KIND.

UNFOLLOW THE
‘SAME OLD’ CROWD.

 

Don’t want to ride the same old bike, the one you see everywhere you go? With the new Brixton Cromwell 1200, you can ride with old school style in a way that’s all your own. Because this is the bike that launches one of motorcycling’s hungriest up-and-coming names into the heavyweight arena. And we’ve no plans to step up quietly.

 

Without a care for reputations, the Cromwell 1200 packs the kind of kick-ass performance that holds its own, and more, against the best in class. So don’t let those classic lines and throwback features fool you. It may be a thing of beauty, but the Cromwell’s also a brute.

 

Here you’ll get the full lowdown on what makes the new Cromwell tick. So, if you’re seeking something different, why not take a look and find out why it could be the one for you. Like what you see? There’s only one thing for it – book a test ride, saddle up and twist hard.

ENGINE

 

1222 cc displacement, 1222 cc Brixton. The water-cooled in-line two-cylinder produces 83 hp at 6,550 rpm with a whopping 108 Nm of torque already available at 3,100 rpm. Mahle pistons are operating in the 8-valve engine and an FCC anti-hopping clutch in the 6-speed gearbox. And what comes out in the end is pure driving pleasure and rich sound thanks to 270° crank pin offset.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

 

The two-pipe exhaust system is made entirely of stainless steel and runs straight down and straight to the rear – looks good, sounds even better. In the colours Cargo Green and Timberwolf Grey the surface is brushed, in Backstage Black it is lacquered black.

SCHOCK ABSORBER

 

Engineers at Japanese suspension specialist KYB/Kayaba have tuned the Cromwell’s shock absorbers precisely to the sweet spot between comfort and sportiness. Protected by classic bellows, a telescopic fork with 120 mm travel and 41 mm stanchion diameter operates at the front for precise responsiveness. At the rear, the spring preload is adjustable and the stereo shocks have 87 mm of travel.

LED lights & indicators

Daytime running lights, headlights, tail lights and indicators: with LED equipment all around, the Cromwell is fully up to date without forgetting the unmistakable charm of classic forms.

Tyres

A motorbike that makes no compromises also needs uncompromising grip. No Brixton gets inferior rubber, and neither does the Cromwell. Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres are fitted here, and wider tyres can be fitted as an option – 110/80-18 at the front, 160/60-17 at the rear.

Bosch ABS & Traction Control

The Bosch dual-channel ABS in version 9.1 has been perfectly matched to the Cromwell 1200. With its featherweight 640 grams, it is not noticeable when riding, but in tricky situations you are glad to have it. A disengageable traction control also ensures safety during hard acceleration.

Cruise control

1222 cc can also cruise comfortably. For motorway stages or long local stretches, the standard cruise control can be conveniently operated with just one button on the left-hand end of the handlebar.

Riding Modes

Eco and Sport: In both riding modes, the same full power and torque are available. In Sport mode, however, the throttle valves open more quickly, giving the engine a more direct and aggressive feel at the throttle.

BRAKING SYSTEM

 

To catch the Cromwell again, two Nissin double-piston floating calipers on two 310 mm brake discs decelerate at the front. At the rear, a double-piston floating caliper from Nissin works on a 260 mm brake disc. At the front and rear, Bosch ABS version 9.1 prevents wheel lock-up.

TFT-DISPLAY

 

All relevant data are neatly arranged in the classic round TFT display. In ECO mode the speed indicator dominates, in Sport mode the rev counter. A practical detail: a discreet USB port on the side.
