Race-spec Öhlins suspension. Iconic 1050cc triple engine. New, smoother gearbox. Brembo monobloc brakes and lightweight forged alloy wheels from PVM. It’s the real deal. The essence of the Speed Triple honed, sharpened and distilled to the ultimate R grade. Razor sharp on road or track. An intravenous connection of man and machine, tyre and tarmac.
Nothing comes close. From those iconic Öhlins NIX30 43mm front 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. Looks a million dollars. Looks as good as it rides. Beautifully engineered forged aluminium wheels reduce unsprung weight by 2kg for scalpel like precision. Carbon fibre radiator and tank covers. Black anodized tapered handlebars. Jewel-like Öhlins TTX36 rear suspension for ultimate control and adjustability. Yours in black or white, with telltale red subframe for those in the know. It looks brilliant because it is brilliant. Triumph’s ultimate factory streetfighter.
