2016 Speed Triples arrive

MORE than 100 engine updates grace the 1050cc triple engine that powers the 2016 Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R, which have just been unveiled by legendary bike brand Triumph.

The bikes take the legacy of the first factory street fighter to a completely new level in terms of performance, agility, power, handling and capability.

Centered around a new 1050cc triple engine, the new Speed Triple S and R redefine the naked performance roadster. The new engine more power and, more importantly, more torque across the whole rev range whilst still meeting Euro 4 regulations and delivering an increase of up to 10% fuel efficiency.

The engine updates also include a new combustion chamber, new cylinder head, a new machined crank, new piston design and new ‘Ride-by-Wire’ throttle bodies. Additional developments also include a slip assist clutch, smaller, more efficient radiator and a new free-flowing exhaust that has a 70% increase in flow rate.

The Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R also feature a suite of rider-focused technology. Among the features that add to the Speed Triple’s performance and capability are a new ECU coupled to a new adjustable Ride-by-Wire throttle with selectable throttle maps that increase the feel, responsiveness and control.

There are now five distinct riding modes to choose from: Road, Rain, Sport, Track and a new Rider Configurable mode, that all allows the rider to set-up the motorcycle to the optimum performance relative to road conditions or environment.

Key to the new Speed Triple S and R is the aggressive, athletic styling and a narrow, focused design. A low, lithe stance is accentuated by sleek new bodywork and a completely new, Daytona 675R-inspired, tailpiece. All of which has been achieved without losing any of the naked minimalist beauty that is synonymous with the Speed Triple.

Featuring four new colour options РPhantom Black and Diablo Red on the Speed Triple S, Crystal White and Matt Graphite on the Speed Triple R Рthe new Speed Triple models are designed to be true to the Speed Triple DNA Рdelivering the perfect balance of performance, handling, capability and character.
