Designed in Austria, built in China

KSR's own brand Brixton was only founded in 2015, named after a London district. So it is a good thing that this "Briumph", alias Brixton Cromwell 1200, looks like it comes from good old England.

Now it's getting thick: For Brixton, whose largest motorcycle to date has a displacement of 486 cc, the full-size Cromwell 1200 is a real hunk. The 1,222 cubic twin is said to generate 108 Newton meters of maximum torque at 3,500 rpm and a beefy 82 hp at 6,500 tours. 

In the stand, the design of the Austro bike, which was built in China, turns on: the Brixton Cromwell 1200 stands sturdy and harmonious on its wire-spoke wheels - 17 inches at the back and the traditional 18 inches at the front. Narrow Pirelli tires, 110 at the front, 160 at the rear, and a compact 1.45 meter wheelbase promote handling. In any case, the not only visual proximity to the Triumph Bonneville T 120 is striking.

Pre-production copy of the Brixton Cromwell 1200

The stereo struts are really classic, but retro charm. The well-known supplier KYB supplies suspension struts and telescopic forks, the stanchions of which are protected by bellows. The brown, quilted bench has a chic effect, and crash bars integrated into the concept appear individual from the start. This first copy is from the pilot series. He is still missing the Brixton emblems on the tank, some details still look a bit shirt-sleeved. In any case, the 1200 will be the first Brixton with a modern TFT cockpit, including various display modes. A conscious counterpoint to retro design.

The same applies to the LED round headlights, which wander charmingly between the eras, whose luminous ring stylizes the four cardinal points and literally illuminates the name Brixton. The cheeky taillight on the rear fender and the short, clipped front fender appear smart.

The water-cooled twin of the Brixton Cromwell 1200 is likely to be a counter-runner with a 180-degree crankshaft - KSR doesn't really know that itself. The sound is tremendously powerful and full - the twin is unlikely to be homologated so loudly.

Two driving modes, Eco and Sport, should tame the fat engine. At the moment, however, there are still occasional hiccups on one or the other gas opening or closing. No, the software for ride-by-wire is not quite finished yet. After all, there is traction control and probably also cruise control and immobilizer.

Sitting comfortably on the Brixton Cromwell 1200

More than the second, third gear on a small, cordoned-off area was not possible at the first contact. Therefore only so much driving impression: Something is really pushing ahead. The temperament is slowed down by Nissin double-piston floating calipers in the front wheel, including Bosch ABS.

The seating position on the Brixton Cromwell 1200 turned out to be traditionally good, with an upright relaxed upper body you crouch as before, your hands find their own butted tubular handlebars. And the detent position amidships ensures a moderate knee angle.

Even smaller people can safely bring both the soles of their feet to the ground when they are standing. There are three paint variants of the Cromwell 1200, which is specified as ready-to-drive at 235 kilograms. In addition to the pastel green shown, there are also gray and black.

CONCLUSION

The announcement of steam is followed by a declaration of war: the price should be around 10,000 euros. Let's see whether this can be maintained when the first series models are to be on the market in March 2022. Is Brixton's bloodhound making Britain tremble now? A Triumph Bonneville T 120 built in Thailand instead of China would then cost around 3,000 euros more than the Brixton Cromwell 1200. Shocking? this will only have to be finally assessed when the series machines are available.
