Triumph’s most iconic model, the Speed Triple,
delivers a new level of handling and composure to
the super naked class.
With the sharpest and most aggressive look yet from
a Speed Triple, and more power from the legendary
1050cc triple, the latest model is adding to the legacy
that has seen over 70,000 Speed Triples sold since
its introduction in 1994.
At 214kg fully fuelled, the latest Speed Triple
is a whole 3kg lighter than the previous model. Front
and rear wheels are each over one kilogram lighter,
while the narrower frame and improved packaging allows
for increased ground clearance and makes the machine
feel incredibly light and nimble. The new 43mm forks
offer excellent control and plushness and are fully-adjustable
for preload, rebound and compression
damping on both legs, while Brembo radial caliper
brakes grip 320mm discs, with the option of Triumph’s
anti-lock braking system available.
The aggressive body panels and heavily sculpted
seat accentuate the Speed Triple’s street fighting
stance and complement the twin headlights. Colour-coded
radiator cowls are a new feature and sport stylish
Speed Triple decals. Three colour options are available:
Crystal White, Phantom Black and Diablo Red, with
colour-coded flyscreen, seat cowl and belly pan available
as genuine Triumph accessories.
The 820mm seat height gives a confidence inspiring
riding position, placing the rider further forward
and inspiring much more confidence when carving through
twisting corners, all making the Speed Triple more
accessible and comfortable than before, Triumph’s
1050cc triple endows the Speed Triple with a mighty
135PS at the top end.
With Triumph’s latest generation ECU software
and modified exhaust system, the new Speed Triple
delivers its raw power in a satisfyingly refined manner.
The 2012 Speed Triple features a high specification
as standard, including fat alloy handlebars, a coded-key
immobiliser and an improved instrumentation which
includes digital speedometer, fuel gauge, trip computer,
analogue tachometer, lap timer, programmable gear
change lights and service interval announcement display.
Triumph’s accessories division has also developed
a full range of official accessories for the new Speed
Triple. Highlights include performance enhancing slip
on silencers and a full three-into-one ‘low
boy’ exhaust system developed in conjunction
with Arrow Special Parts, while a tyre pressure sensor
kit is available for the first time on the Speed Triple.
