Our 1050cc inline three-cylinder engine in the new Triumph Speed Triple is a masterpiece, smooth, balanced and unmistakably charismatic. It is tuned to deliver fists full of linear torque for instant overtaking grunt whatever gear you’re in, and stunning top end performance. The introduction of ride-by-wire delivers an instant response to your throttle input and the selectable riding modes and variable traction control, results in a package that is simply the epitome of road bike engines.
Pure, linear torque is the goal for serious road-based riders, and the new Speed Triple is tuned to deliver more than ever. The new intake system, ports, combustion chambers and new exhaust system are all designed to increase gas flow efficiently, resulting in stunning performance and improved fuel economy.
The inline three-cylinder layout of the new 1050cc engine in the Speed Triple delivers the best real world riding available, with a flexibility no other powertrain can match: acres of sumptuous full range torque, deliciously smooth midrange drive and stacks of hard-charging peak performance – all from a compact, highly controllable and reliable power unit.
The under seat exhaust styling is very much a Triumph Speed Triple signature, and highlights the single-sided swingarm. The lighter, 70% freer-flowing exhaust system on the Speed Triple incorporates new headers, and new silencers for more power and better efficiency that significantly increase its gutsy, characteristic inline triple exhaust roar.
The new Triumph Speed Triple features, for the first time, five selectable riding modes – Rain, Road, Sport, Track and a Rider-configurable mode. Each mode varies throttle response, ABS settings and traction control levels. Rain provides a softer throttle response than Road, whilst Sport and Track provide a sharper, more aggressive throttle map. Rider mode allows the storage of a preferred custom combination of settings for one-touch convenience. Modes can be quickly altered via new handlebar switchgear during riding.
For added levels of rider engagement in conjunction &nbnbsp;with the new riding modes on the Triumph Speed Triple, are variable levels of anti-lock brake and traction control. Rain mode has the most sensitive traction control, Road and Sport modes feature ABS and traction control for normal road riding, while Track mode uses the minimum intervention for ABS and traction control. Custom settings can be stored in Rider mode, or ABS and traction control can also be entirely disengaged.
Highlighting the attention to detail of the Triumph Speed Triple, slim-line and long-life LED indicators are fitted as standard (in applicable markets). Featuring a durable polished aluminium body, the indicators add a finishing touch to the new, slim profile styling and enhanced quality.
The new Triumph Speed Triple features a ride-by-wire throttle using electronics to interpret grip position for more instant and accurate throttle response and control. It also improves engine efficiency and fuel economy by increasing fuelling consistency.
SINGLE SIDED SWINGARM
More than just a signature styling characteristic, the new Speed Triple’s single-sided swingarm is engineered to optimize handling stability – not to mention making it easier to clean the rear wheel, or remove it when changing tyres.
The new Triumph Speed Triple has agility, stability and engagement at the heart of its handling characteristics, unleashing the thrill with every ride. Designed, engineered and tested extensively, the frame dimensions and geometry are refined for the road by Triumph’s development engineers and test-riders, building on our enviable reputation for delivering a supple, dynamic and refined ride balanced by a bold, aggressive attitude that lets you ride the way you want to.
The Speed Triple R uses 43mm Öhlins NIX30 upside down forks and Öhlins TTX36 twin tube rear monoshock both fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping.
WHEELS, BRAKES AND TYRES
For the ultimate in stopping power, the new Triumph Speed Triple R uses radial Brembo monobloc calipers, gripping 320mm discs, in conjunction with switchable, variable ABS. Adding to all-round braking performance and balanced high-grip and durability, The Speed Triple R uses Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tyres running on light, cast aluminium wheels.
With heritage drawn from the ground-breaking 1995 Triumph Daytona T595 superbike, the new Speed Triple has a twin spar tubular aluminium frame bringing its perfect blend of rigidity and feel.
RIDING AND HANDLING
The Triumph Speed Triple is defined by its ability to deliver dynamic handling in all riding conditions, and the new Speed Triple builds on that reputation. A forward, aggressive riding position ensures total control, total confidence and the mastery of your environment, whether you’re forging a path through urban sprawl, sweeping at speed across the countryside, or hitting the apex at a race track.
With its bold, distinctive looks, the Speed Triple is one of the most instantly recognisable silhouettes in motorcycling. The new Speed Triple continues that tradition; new twin headlights, single-sided swingarm and underseat exhaust are its signature. The new Speed Triple refines the look with a purposeful front end and aerodynamic bodywork for a sleek, integrated and iconic style.
HANDLEBAR CLAMPS AND RISERS
Exclusive to the new Speed Triple R, outstanding attention to high quality detail is evident immediately when you reach for its handlebars. The wide alloy bars are held by a pair of clamps and risers exquisitely machined from a solid aluminium billet, giving the Speed Triple R’s cockpit an air of customised class.
MUDGUARD AND TANK INFILL PANELS
Saving every ounce of weight makes a big difference in performance. That’s why the Speed Triple R features an exclusive, lightweight carbon fibre front mudguard and a pair of carbon fibre tank infill panels, both for that high-performance style and to save weight.
REAR WHEELS FINISHER
The smallest details can make the biggest impact, which is why the new Triumph Speed Triple R comes with a rear wheel finisher made from machined billet of aluminium, a true reflection of our attention to detail.
‘R’ STYLING FEATURES
The new Triumph Speed Triple R comes with a red colour-coded theme across the bike to highlight its extra special appeal. It includes red stitching on the new rider and pillion seats, red wheel pin stripes, red-painted subframe and red side cowls.
The new dynamics of the Triumph Speed Triple front end is epitomised by a pair of profiled headlights and a standard-fitment fly screen with air intake scoop between the lights giving a lower, more aggressive look. The overall effect honours the famous Speed Triple‘face’.
BAR AND MIRRORS
The new Speed Triple features a pair of aluminium bar-end mirrors instead of conventional stalk-mounted mirrors that give an improved rearward view and more aggressive profile.
The new Speed Triple features a sleek fuel tank with a low side profile for a fully integrated design. Its contoured shape is ergonomically styled and made from magnetic tankbag-friendly steel.
A narrow radiator gives the Speed Triple a slim front end profile. The sleek radiator cowls and a bellypan (standard fit on the R version) adds to the distinctive design silhouette.
The new Triumph Speed Triple’s seat is a separate two-piece design, focussed on the best individual shape for comfort. The rider's seat has a narrow front profile for better control and improved ‘stand-over’ but is also now wider and more supportive at the back. The Triumph logo is embossed on the leading edge of the pillion seat, giving added conspicuous detail.
The under seat exhaust on the new Triumph Speed Triple, with black wrap and shot-blasted and anodised aluminium heat shields are lightweight and incredibly efficient but best of all, they sound amazing.
