Triumph has introduced the Triumph Speed Triple 2022. The Triumph Speed Triple 2022 is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, coupled with a 1,200 cc engine.
Triumph has just introduced the Speed Triple 1200 RS 2021, after about 2 weeks of releasing the first teaser. In the UK, the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS starts at $ 20,700. This model is priced lower than some European nakedbikes in the same segment as the Ducati Streetfighter V4 ($ 28,500) and the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory ($ 29,900).
Triumph only introduces the RS version of the new Speed Triple 1200. The company has no intention of producing a version for the Speed Triple 1200 or the superbike version based on this 1,200 cc engine.
The 3-cylinder engine on the Speed Triple 1200 RS 2021 is a completely new type, developed from Triumph’s Moto2 engine. This engine produces 177 hp at 10,750 rpm and 125 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. Compared to rival Streetfighter V4 (208 hp) or Tuono V4 (217 hp), the Speed Triple 1200 RS’s power is much less than that.
The car uses a 6-speed gearbox with integrated anti-slip clutch, power assist and a 2-way quickshift. The gearshifts provide a smoother shift than the Speed Triple 1050. In addition, the Speed Triple 1200 RS’s engine is 7 kg lighter than the Speed Triple 1050 to 7 kg due to the application of new materials.
The car uses an aluminum frame, 17% lighter than the Speed Triple 1050. The new chassis places the engine forward and lower, providing a better weight distribution ratio. Lithium-ion batteries also help the car “lose weight”.
As can be seen, Triumph builds the Speed Triple 1200 RS in the direction of a streetfighter rather than a power nakedbike. Therefore, the car is not too strong in the segment. Instead, the British motorcycle company focuses on the Speed Triple 1200 RS’s on-street performance and handling.
All equipment on the Speed Triple 1200 RS 2021 comes from reputable brands. The adjustable suspension comes from Ohlins with the upside-down NIX30 at the front and TTX36 at the back.
Braking system includes Brembo Stylema 4-piston calipers and Brembo one-piston equal brake. The car uses a single clamp.
