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.
Because we know that the Cromwell 1200 delivers what it promises, we offer a warranty extension to 3 years – free of charge for everyone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
