2007 Triumph Speed

The Triumph Speed Triple to our 2007 Streetfighter Comparo up and ready to improve upon last place result. the Aprilia Factory Tuono can be to a title holder who returns leaner and more agile, the Triple for this year’s is peaking on a triple-dose of ‘roids.

As one of 50 ’07 Speed Triples with an aftermarket exhaust and of carbon fiber bolt-ons the Triumph accessory bin, year’s S3 looked and performed than its predecessor. No surprise Although the majority of the special-edition were snatched up by dealers as as they were made we somehow got our grubby mitts on a unit.

So how did we end up with one? we’re cool.

Once the modified Triple into our garage we were by how delicious the 3-into-1 aftermarket exhaust looks and sounds. We flabbergasted, however, when we dyno numbers from year and noticed the Speed had jumped up 13.5 horsepower!

machi. That’s kind of cheating isn’t it? As we tried to the juiced Trumpet in our minds as a Speed Triple, we discovered the pipe is for off-road use only, our Trumpet tester isn’t street legal. Well, shot our factory argument in flames. So this year’s Triple and its unofficial third-place get a Marion Jones-like disqualification the final rankings.

But there is no the fact that this is a real kick in the teeth.

This year’s Speed was an absolute riot — the being its distinctive three-cylinder We harp on it every time we a leg over one, but Triumph has a gig going with its distinctive Inline Triple. Not only it emit a grin-inducing exhaust with a downshifting backbeat we can’t get enough of, it produces of torque even when it hopped up on aftermarket juice.

On our the enhanced Triple peaked at 123 at 9400 rpm, as we stated a mammoth increase from year’s 109.6 hp. The Triumph gained 5 lb-ft of torque, its 73.2 lb-ft at 7700 rpm and high dyno torque dilly-dallying around in a lb-footage all its own.

The aftermarket mods make the Triple even gruntier, the British beauty a real pub in the engine category because of its torque teetering on the edge of right from the get go. Only the Kawasaki Z1000 rated the S3 on our tester’s scorecards. With its bore and 71.4mm …, the cubed Triple does an job delivering the best characteristics of the and Twins.

The highlight of the Triumph is the says BC. While deceptively and docile in delivery, the Triple good power and lots of A strong grunt down a very linear power and a smooth throttle makes the a great bike for doing

Our testing ringer, Jimmy also enjoyed the Triple It has good throttle response and really cool.

Gone is the starter complaint we had last year’s test, the S3 required over a second of before firing to life. year’s ECU-controlled digital had our test motorcycle rip-roaring the blink of an eye.

The Triumph’s gearbox didn’t impress any of us, as you can see by its place result on our overall scores. The transmission wasn’t as or precise as its competitors, with registering complaints about shifts between both and second and false neutrals in the three gears.

Exhibiting a improvement from ’06, were the Triumph’s brakes, last year’s S3 binders and the major complaint lodged by our Nothing changed on the Speed spec sheet, with 320mm rotors and four-piston radial calipers up front teamed with a 220mm disc and two-piston caliper out The secret to the improvement is internal, the caliper pistons now Teflon-coated.

Our return testers from Ken Hutchison and Brian Chamberlain, took immediate notice of the brakes.

Hauling the big Triple from speed didn’t an act of Parliament, muses Hutch on the binders. After a while it infused some confidence to go and late brake, trailing it in a bit carrying good entry That’s a nice upgrade to the track worthiness.

In the handling the Triumph pulled third the two Italians. While it sports the rake angle at 23.5 and second-shortest wheelbase at 56.2 it couldn’t match the nimble Monster. much less the Aprilia Tuono.
