Triumph Motorcycles has just showcased the Speed Triple on their UK website, touting it as the most powerful, sweet-sounding and agile Speed Triple yet. While we really look forward to having the Speed Triple back on road in India, let’s take a quick look at what all it brings to the table.
On the styling front, the Triumph Speed Triple doesn’t look much different from the earlier model. Available in two variants, the Speed Triple S and RS have just one visually differentiating factor among them - the red and grey stripes that run down from the headlight cowl to the rear end on the RS.
New updates include bug-eyed headlamps with LED DRLs and an adjustable TFT colour display, similar to the one seen on the Street Triple RS. Otherwise, the tank, seats, the rear end and even the exhaust positioning remains unchanged. The Speed Triple RS though gets Arrow exhaust as stock fitment.
Powering the Speed Triple is a majorly updated 1050cc, 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor mated to a six-speed gearbox that is operated by a slip-assist clutch. As opposed to the outgoing model, the new Speed Triple now delivers 10PS more power, with 4 per cent more torque. As a result, power produced is 150PS at 10,500rpm, with peak torque of 117Nm coming in at 7,150rpm. The power and torque output of both the variants are identical, even in terms of the rev band at which it’s delivered. It is expected to be priced at approx. Rs. 12 lakhs (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
