Triumph’s all-new performance roadster, the 2016 Speed Triple, arrived in dealerships nationwide earlier this week (29th February). More focused, more powerful and more capable, the aggressive model pairs state-of-the-art technology with eye-catching design to deliver maximum fun and maximum thrills.
Harnessing an all-new 1050cc triple engine, the 2016 Speed Triple retains its legendary style and minimalist beauty, while improving performance and capability to redefine the performance roadster segment.
Available in both ‘S’ and ‘R’ configurations, both new models feature a suite of rider-focused technology designed to maximise control and allow the rider to optimise performance depending on conditions, climate and riding style. A new ride-by-wire throttle system – complete with five rider modes – provides enhanced control, feel and responsiveness, while delivering improved fuel efficiency.
No expense has been spared in giving the Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R class-leading chassis and suspension componentry. Both models feature Brembo M4.32 radial monobloc brakes and fully-adjustable suspension as standard, while the Speed Triple R also comes with Öhlins NIX30 upside down front forks, as well as an Öhlins TTX36 race shock absorbers. The Speed Triple R also features a billet machined handlebar clamp and risers, together with machined swingarm spindle finishers and rear wheel finisher.
A return to the ‘hooligan bike’ looks of the original Speed Triple, the two new models are also more focused and assertive in their styling. Striking lines through the fuel tank and tail unit create a more aggressive look, while a 20mm narrower seat head improves stand-over and lowers profile.
Available from authorised Triumph dealers across the UK from 29th February 2016, the all-new Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R are available at an OTR price of £10,200 and £11,500 respectively, as well as via TriStar – Triumph’s PCP programme – for highly affordable monthly payments from £155.
