SPEED TRIPLE 1050 R (2016)
- Tech Spec
Our 1050cc inline three-cylinder engine in the new Triumph Speed Triple is a masterpiece, smooth, balanced and unmistakably charismatic. It is tuned to deliver fists full of linear torque for instant overtaking grunt whatever gear you’re in, and stunning top end performance. The introduction of ride-by-wire delivers an instant response to your throttle input and the selectable riding modes and variable traction control, results in a package that is simply the epitome of road bike engines.
Pure, linear torque is the goal for serious road-based riders, and the new Speed Triple is tuned to deliver more than ever. The new intake system, ports, combustion chambers and new exhaust system are all designed to increase gas flow efficiently, resulting in stunning performance and improved fuel economy.
The inline three-cylinder layout of the new 1050cc engine in the Speed Triple delivers the best real world riding available, with a flexibility no other powertrain can match: acres of sumptuous full range torque, deliciously smooth midrange drive and stacks of hard-charging peak performance – all from a compact, highly controllable and reliable power unit.
The under seat exhaust styling is very much a Triumph Speed Triple signature, and highlights the single-sided swingarm. The lighter, 70% freer-flowing exhaust system on the Speed Triple incorporates new headers, and new silencers for more power and better efficiency that significantly increase its gutsy, characteristic inline triple exhaust roar.
The new Triumph Speed Triple features, for the first time, five selectable riding modes – Rain, Road, Sport, Track and a Rider-configurable mode. Each mode varies throttle response, ABS settings and traction control levels. Rain provides a softer throttle response than Road, whilst Sport and Track provide a sharper, more aggressive throttle map. Rider mode allows the storage of a preferred custom combination of settings for one-touch convenience. Modes can be quickly altered via new handlebar switchgear during riding.
For added levels of rider engagement in conjunction with the new riding modes on the Triumph Speed Triple, are variable levels of anti-lock brake and traction control. Rain mode has the most sensitive traction control, Road and Sport modes feature ABS and traction control for normal road riding, while Track mode uses the minimum intervention for ABS and traction control. Custom settings can be stored in Rider mode, or ABS and traction control can also be entirely disengaged.
Highlighting the attention to detail of the Triumph Speed Triple, slim-line and long-life LED indicators are fitted as standard (in applicable markets). Featuring a durable polished aluminium body, the indicators add a finishing touch to the new, slim profile styling and enhanced quality.
The new Triumph Speed Triple features a ride-by-wire throttle using electronics to interpret grip position for more instant and accurate throttle response and control. It also improves engine efficiency and fuel economy by increasing fuelling consistency.
SINGLE SIDED SWINGARM
More than just a signature styling characteristic, the new Speed Triple’s single-sided swingarm is engineered to optimize handling stability – not to mention making it easier to clean the rear wheel, or remove it when changing tyres.
The new Triumph Speed Triple has agility, stability and engagement at the heart of its handling characteristics, unleashing the thrill with every ride. Designed, engineered and tested extensively, the frame dimensions and geometry are refined for the road by Triumph’s development engineers and test-riders, building on our enviable reputation for delivering a supple, dynamic and refined ride balanced by a bold, aggressive attitude that lets you ride the way you want to.
The Speed Triple R uses 43mm Öhlins NIX30 upside down forks and Öhlins TTX36 twin tube rear monoshock both fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping.
WHEELS, BRAKES AND TYRES
For the ultimate in stopping power, the new Triumph Speed Triple R uses radial Brembo monobloc calipers, gripping 320mm discs, in conjunction with switchable, variable ABS. Adding to all-round braking performance and balanced high-grip and durability, The Speed Triple R uses Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tyres running on light, cast aluminium wheels.
With heritage drawn from the ground-breaking 1995 Triumph Daytona T595 superbike, the new Speed Triple has a twin spar tubular aluminium frame bringing its perfect blend of rigidity and feel.
RIDING AND HANDLING
The Triumph Speed Triple is defined by its ability to deliver dynamic handling in all riding conditions, and the new Speed Triple builds on that reputation. A forward, aggressive riding position ensures total control, total confidence and the mastery of your environment, whether you’re forging a path through urban sprawl, sweeping at speed across the countryside, or hitting the apex at a race track.
