Triumph Speed Triple R

a fine bike like the Speed Triple, throw Öhlins, Brembos and carbon at it and unless you make a horrible you`re going to create a bike. But is it a great value

Another press launch no road riding, although time it took a track to and emphasise the differences between the Triumph Speed Triple, only last year, and the new R There are few circuits which claim to be any better or more than the classic Jerez, enhanced with sunshine and a dry for our ride.

The changes made to the Triple, the bike Triumph as the most important in its range for sales and image reasons, are few but significant to create the R. The forks are 43mm inverted cartridge which reside somewhere in the of Öhlins range, and these are with springs five per stiffer than the standard At the back, the TTX36 twin shock spring sees a increase, and again it`s a range specification (within world-leading range. ).

One of the most changes you can make to a bike are the — some engineers a kilo lost here is eight lost anywhere Triumph has replaced the standard wheels with some forged PVM items, which are not lighter to the tune of 1.5lb at the front and 2.2 lb (1.0kg) at the rear, of the mass has been lost the rim.

This reduces the gyroscopic and the inertia substantially, improving a host of areas. Acceleration is because the wheels resist much less, steering is sharper as the gyro forces are unsprung mass is less so the has less work to do and braking because the wheels slow easily and there`s more That`s in addition to the overall loss. these come with Pirelli Super SP rubber.

The brakes themselves are Monoblocs, a surefire way to perfect just as long as the specifications are Sometimes manufacturers are tempted to go for here — the Husqvarna is a recent example, and they end up intimidating rather than But Triumph`s approach was considered too, with an increase in force of about five per and a similar improvement in perceived according to their test

There`s one internal change to the Triple R: the gearbox is almost new, featuring five dogs per gear instead of with smaller tolerances, splines for reduced friction and material and shape changes. is 3.4 per cent lower too. is not a Speed Triple R exclusive the new box will find its way into all 1050 triples in order to shift action and reduce

The rest is largely cosmetic, the high quality carbon components — radiator tank front cover and sides — play a in the overall weight reduction of (2.0kg) over the standard Triple. The handlebars are black a neat `R` graphic, the rear is red, there`s some red and other detail differences.

No surprises in the ride, given all the changes do exactly as they and that shouldn`t detract what a cracking good Triumph has created here. the noticeable difference is a general that the Speed Triple R like a bike that`s a lot more weight than It`s wieldy and agile in a way I suspect could make the one feel almost unwieldy in or at least lethargic, ridden to back.

This might not be positive for some riders What you get is a bike which is a lot responsive to your input the bars, which changes rapidly to the point of being not so flighty but definitely very Dial into this and rewarded with a superbly immediate and obedient machine changes direction, leans and line while you`re thinking about it yourself.

What you lose is the more assured feel of the standard that for riders who make occasional track outings disturb their confidence, as the relatively wide bars the effect. Those Pirellis have huge grip to and plenty of well-telegraphed feedback it gets slippery, as some of corners were early in the They work very with the bike and it’s to see how alternatives will be much

Most though will the new-found agility and the sports satisfaction that comes that, and for the street hooligans the Triple was always designed it`s even easier to than the stock model. If is a skill you`d like to then I can`t think of a bike to learn on.

A dip of the clutch and the front wheel is in the air control the height with the wrist until you find the point, where the bike in and settles as if this is what it was for all along. And if you’re simply out of a corner, it’ll wheelie

As for those brakes, like the of the changes you get what you expect and for, additional power but not too much — with an in feel that lends the an air of high quality, above the machine. The suspension is the same, in controlling pitch when working and releasing those with a panache that make the lower cost feel something close to

Combine the two and you have a bike can be hauled up with vicious then turned as you release the with a fluidity that`s incongruous on a brash-looking streetfighter. It down the through the gears too, and you’ll probably not the new gearbox, which is how it should be. I did to have a few double takes at upchanges in maximum acceleration — I suspect adjusting the would sort that but not entirely convinced yet.

the Jerez track presentation, is still very much a bike, and you notice that the engine. On the road its heavy torque bias is perfect for around at relaxed high dispatching cars and corners disdain and thrilling with its thrust and crisp response, but you do yourself running out of revs a too frequently on the track. This is observation than criticism as it`s a consequence of the bike`s strength, being perfectly to real world sports

It is indeed a great bike but how about the value? It`s a of a lot of money for a streetfighter without a badge — £11,299, another £600 if you want the ABS. Nothing wrong the Triumph label but at this you`re starting to expect a like Ducati or MV Agusta, and you can score any number of full-on with high specs and higher performance.

The standard Triple seems like a bargain in comparison at £8,799 the ABS again), although at retail you`re gaining more £5,000 of extras for the £2,500

Triumph Speed Triple

It`s not going to sell in big in the way that some high versions of bikes outsell the base models. It is going to to riders who know they a Speed Triple and not a Fireblade or and who have the means to get the best When they do, in that they`ll get an appropriate £2,500 Most though will be as happy with the standard

I`d go for that, it`s still a bike.
