Triumph’s big unveil at Intermot today included the latest version of the iconic Speed Triple, which has an aggressive new look and an extensive number of new features, including an overall weight reduction, colour-coded radiator cowls and a 825mm seat height.
The British motorcycle manufacturer has sold over 70,000 Speed Triples since its introduction in 1994, but the latest incarnation is said to offer more power and deliver a new level of handling. The new bike is available in three colour options: Crystal White, Phantom Black and Sulphur Yellow and uses Triumph’s latest generation ECU software and modified exhaust system.
The new Speed Triple ‘R’ also includes Ohlins forks, which have been specially developed for the bike, as well as track-developed Pirelli Supercorsa SP rubber.
