2011 Triumph Speed : MD First Ride

The best motorcycle of the new era of Triumph an update, and it received a very one. The 2011 Speed is more modern, refined and a better motorcycle, overall.

16 ago the Triumph Speed Triple from Hinckley, and has been the charismatic bike, and the best of the reborn Triumph, captained by Bloor. With three of displacement to date (855, 955 and cc), the look of the bike has not too much over the years. now. The big … from is known for its great personality, the double headlights that several years ago, and of being propelled by the muscular, engine that is the house

But now it is time for a fresh interpretation of classic. In terms of looks, the two headlights that were the of the speed triple in the past are in favor of the more modern, units that will disappoint some of the faithful. We get a new look to the gas tank, which is at the front(holding the battery in its new location) and new side covers.

The back of the bike has a fresh and the tail light is an LED.

The exit up high in the back, but are now in profile and 3 pounds lighter. is also offering a set of arrow for an additional 3 hp and even less Finally, a single muffler exits down low is available, and a 15 pound weight reduction.

The new is more compact and narrower. the smaller displacement Street Triple and The slim profile helps you get feet on the ground easier, and position is slightly more and relaxed.

Steering geometry is changed and the single-sided swingarm is now 18.5 mm providing increased stability and Moving weight to the front patch, Triumph relocated the battery under the seat to in of the tank.

Although the displacement has not thoroughly revised the engine, it in the chassis. The result is further over the front, and an increase in power of 5 hp. More torque is over a broader range, engine pulls harder earlier.

The of the 2011 Speed Triple is by roughly 7 pounds. A contributor is wheels, but earlier speculation and had many enthusiasts expecting a much weight drop.

The venue for the of this new bike was the stunning circuit, a long and technical ideal for testing both and riders, and perfect for evaluation of the to the new Speed Triple.

The first thing you notice is the rider ergonomics. The narrower doesn’t spread your so much, and the closer handlebars you to assume a more relaxed on the machine. This is clearly an new feeling aboard the big triple, and a one.

The first laps are gently, as it is cold and there is moisture on the track. The pace increases and we appreciate that has drastically improved the chassis and the which now feels much accurate and less nervous.

The big still makes the front end when accelerating, but the bars twitch in your hands as much, and the front wheel much more firmly placing the bike on its intended and giving the rider more The bike might be a touch quick to change direction, but the is worth it. The bike is still agile, and the improved weight and slightly reduced overall allows you to tip the bike over relative ease.

After taking a break, we are on the track for a second session, and a third. We pick up the pace but the bike continues to behave itself confidence. The Speed Triple may not to the track quite as adeptly as Streetfighter with its superbike but the bike is plenty fast and has a nature that will shine on the street, as we were to learn.

The improved traction in the comes not only from the swingarm, but from the increased size (from 180 to 190).

The circuit, filled with turns, leads you to concentrate on your line and your off the corners. We discovered that the with its improved spread of likes being short-shifted, and out of the corner in a higher gear. The always responds well and with surprising thrust the lower RPMs.

The lack of a slipper clutch to some choppy corner however.

In the afternoon, we take to the and a mountain road that to light the character of the Speed in the real world. Here, the new really shines and reminds us of its brother, the Street Triple, but big brother has a lot more torque and acceleration. The handling is nearly agile but stable and with feedback.

The brakes are plenty but not brutal. Perhaps, we would like a more initial bite, at the race track, but this is not a track bike as much as it is a weapon. For the street, the brakes are about perfect, and the lack of initial bite can be an asset on textured roads and unexpected

We love the old Speed Triple. It is a filled with character, but the new one is better. Improved in virtually respect, and we even like the new

The price shouldn’t change but buyers will get a more and rideable package, with all the fun and of the old model.
