Triumph’s iconic Speed Triple receives the ‘R’ treatment for 2012, with a new model lavished with the most desirable components from the biggest names in the motorcycle industry. From the iconic Öhlins forks, developed especially for the new Speed Triple R, to the track-developed Pirelli Supercorsa SP rubber, it’s clear that this is no ordinary motorcycle.

The Speed Triple R takes Triumph’s class leading roadster and creates a machine dripping with beautiful engineering to deliver a whole new level of poise and agility.

Working in close collaboration with Swedish suspension wizards Öhlins, the Speed Triple R sports the latest specification NIX30 43mm forks at the front, with a jewel like TTX36 unit at the rear. To minimise unsprung weight as much as possible, the lightweight five-spoke forged aluminium wheels from PVM are over
1.7kg lighter than those on the standard machine, delivering even more precise and agile handling. Stopping the Speed Triple R are top specification four-piston radial monoblock calipers from Brembo, the leading brand in MotoGP racing, with Triumph’s electronic anti-lock system available as an option. Together, the brakes and wheels offer a 5% increase in braking performance over the standard Speed Triple.

Powering the Speed Triple R is Triumph’s legendary 1050cc three-cylinder, producing an impressive 135PS and a mighty 111Nm punch for effortless sports riding. The Speed Triple R also debuts the 1050’s completely redesigned gearbox, for more positive and refined shifting action.

Of course, every Triumph ‘R’ model comes with some added touches for that extra touch of quality. Paint options are classy metallic Phantom Black or Crystal White, with subtle details like the R branded tapered black alloy bars, carbon fibre radiator, mudguard and tank covers, unique decals and red coloured subframe
making the Speed Triple R stand out discretely to those in the know.

As you would expect, the Speed Triple R is highly specified with a comprehensive instrumentation package that includes programmable gear shift lights, digital speedometer, lap timer, fuel gauge and trip computer alongside the large analogue tachometer, with a coded key immobiliser fitted as standard. A wide range of further options are available from Triumph’s Genuine Accessories range, including stylish flyscreens, belly pans and seat cowls, security and luggage solutions. The accessory slip-on silencers and three-into-one ‘low boy’ exhaust, developed in collaboration with Arrow Special Parts for the Speed Triple, are also available for the Speed Triple R.
