The name Cromwell 1200 is pure understatement, the Twin has 1222 cubic!

Paddle instead of spill! That was probably the motto during the development of the Cromwell 1200. While 486 cc in the A2-capable Crossfire 500 was the greatest feeling at Brixton, the 1222 cc Twin is now opening a new chapter in the young history of the brand. With a maximum torque of 108 Nm at 3,100 rpm and a peak output of 82 hp at 6,550 rpm there is no need to hide from the British competition. Unfortunately, this also applies to the heat generated by the engine, which really drives the pilot out of the city on hot days (it was up to 37 degrees on the test day), i.e. up to the Exelberg.

The two-cylinder rumbles off wonderfully sonorous and soon after rolling it is clear: the data sheet does not promise too much. The Cromwell 1200 is motivated to get down to work, even in ECO mode. This also suits the Brixton much better, as can be seen after switching to sport mode. The sport mode is tuned directly, almost digitally, in any case too toxic. Gently applying gas to fire confidently from the radius becomes a real challenge. So you are well advised to use the ECO mode and do not have to switch between the modes often. In a way, this is an advantage, because this change requires holding the mode button for a few seconds.

Brixton Cromwell 1200: A successful mix of styles between classic and modern

Not only the display view of the small TFT display, which changes when changing modes, shows concessions to modern times, despite poor readability in direct sunlight. The Cromwell is also fully equipped with LED lighting units. Above all, the minimalist turn signals and the rear light are a real ornament. The main headlight, surrounded by daytime running lights, bears the letters N,W,S,E as a homage to a compass, as is already known from other Brixton models. We are already familiar with the classic bellows on the telescopic fork.

The two-tone finish Timberwolf Gray of our test machine with lines on the tank, on the other hand, celebrates its premiere in the Cromwell 1200. The two shades of gray give the motorcycle an elegant appearance with a lot of understatement. If you want it more colorful, you can go for the mint green Cargo Green version, for fans of black motorcycles there is Backstage Black. The raised logo is reminiscent of the Union Jack, fitting for a brand named after a part of London. The seat also fits harmoniously into the overall picture, although it is somewhat tightly padded. The quality of workmanship and the feel of the controls are impressive and stand out from the cheaper models of the brand. You have learned something new and hide cable harnesses and technical necessities, such as the water cooler, in an elegant way.

Ergonomics like back then on the big Brixton

A straight, rather narrow handlebar, an equally straight saddle, a relaxed knee angle thanks to low-mounted footrests. If you give an elementary school student pen and paper to draw a motorcycle, the silhouette will be quite similar to that of the Brixton Cromwell 1200. This classic design has advantages and disadvantages in terms of ergonomics. On the one hand, the sitting position is upright and relaxed, on the other hand, the position conveys little feeling for the front wheel and the freedom of leaning is naturally limited by the mounting point of the footrests.

Two people can also ride the Cromwell 1200, as long as they don't weigh more than 220 kg (maximum payload) together. The spring preload on the two stereo spring struts can unfortunately only be adjusted with a hook wrench, following the old-school motto. It's still enough for the way to the ice cream parlor, the space is reasonable.

Equipment at a high level, but functionality is not always 100% successful

Brixton doesn't splash out and has given its new flagship, in addition to two driving modes, the obligatory ABS, traction control (which can be switched off) and even cruise control. As welcome as this step is, it seems as if the latter was unfortunately not fully developed when it came to tuning. Activating the system requires holding the button (felt) forever, we already know it from the mode button, setting a speed requires luck and feeling. Setting the cruise control does not work at all if the gas valve is opened too far, which leads to the following process: Accelerate to 150 km/h, then press the button as often as possible and wait to see whether the small symbol in the display changes from yellow to green. That here and also with the mode switch simply a new programming could help,

Driving impressions Brixton 1200 Cromwell

In the winding hills of the Vienna Woods we were able to let the Cromwell 1200 off the leash a bit. Following the classic appearance, the fork with 120 mm travel holds an 18 inch front wheel. The response of the damping is okay, while the steering behavior is noticeably influenced by the dimensions of the front tire and requires strength and an occasional corrective hand to stay on course. The rear suspension struts offer 87 mm of travel and only allow very limited sporting ambitions, but overall the tuning fits the lean angle freedom.

The Nissin brake system - 310 mm double disc at the front and 260 mm single disc at the rear - can surprise you positively and is definitely in no way inferior to the performance of the 1200 engine. Once you have adjusted to the above circumstances, the classic machine with the powerful twin drives very harmoniously (especially in ECO mode). With high gears, you bang confidently even through narrow bends. Even the Pirelli Phantom Sports Comp, which is getting on in years, presents itself as absolutely suitable tires for the classic spoked rims. In fact, the footrests that hit early mark the end of the road in terms of driving dynamics. So take a deep breath and enjoy cruising in the saddle of the 243.5 kg Brixton (weight measured by us on the 1000hp livestock scale with a full tank).

The price of the Brixton Cromwell 1200 is hot - full power at a savings rate

Coming to what is perhaps the Brixton Cromwell 1200's most important argument, its price. In Austria you get 10,990 euros, while in Germany you stay below the 10,000 euro hurdle. Current offers for the Brixton Cromwell 1200 in your area can of course be found on our 1000hp marketplace. To put that in perspective: At this rate, the British competition (which also manufactures in Asia) only offers the 900 cc Bonneville. On top of that, you have to do without the power of the larger motor, driving modes or cruise control. If you want the T120, which is comparable in these categories, you have to pay a good 3500 euros more.
