2009 Triumph Speed Triple

2009 Triumph Speed TripleTriumph Speed Triple09 Triumph Speed Triple

Triumph’s Speed Triple has become an iconic model since the launch of the original version in 1994, delivering unparalleled attitude in a uniquely styled package.

Over the years it has been constantly developed in order to maintain its position as the definitive factory streetfighter and the latest Speed Triple is the sharpest yet. The 1050cc fuel injected three-cylinder engine that powers the Speed Triple is key to the bike’s brutish charm, pumping out a great surge of bottom-end torque, followed by a massive mid-range punch and an impressive level of overall power, all of which is delivered to the rear wheel via a slick shifting six-speed gearbox.

Peak power is 132PS (131bhp) at 9,250rpm while peak torque of 105Nm (77ft.lbf) arrives at 7,500rpm. Triumph’s second generation Keihin Engine Control Unit offers sophisticated mapping for quicker starting, cleaner running and fuel economic engine.

A rigid aluminium frame contains the engine and provides massive strength with steering geometry that gives fast-steering neutrality plus great stability. The fully adjustable 43mm upside down forks and rear monoshock – specifically developed for the Speed Triple – add superb levels of quality and control. The evocative single-sided swingarm adds style and substance while the twin-level oval section exhaust pipes enhance the engine’s distinctive and addictive induction roar.

Top quality cycle parts include radial-caliper four-piston Brembo front brakes, Magura tapered bars, an all-new subframe and redesigned multi-spoke wheels. These developments have already proved a big hit with Triumph customers, with strong demand making it once again one of the best-selling bikes in the company’s range.

Speed Triples are famous for being offered in a variety of eye-catching shades over the years, with the 2009 model coming in four alternatives: Blazing Orange, Matt Black, Jet Black and Fusion White.

The Triumph Accessory range for the Speed Triple includes the popular Arrow three–into–one full race system (for circuit use only), as well as a host of other factory-approved parts. The list includes fat handlebars, high performance silencers (for circuit use only), belly pan, rear hugger and a wealth of carbon fibre parts and other cosmetic additions, such as the anodised radiator cowl and heel guards.
