based Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled the 2021 Speed Triple 1200. It is the most
powerful and fastest accelerating Speed Triple ever with an all-new higher
capacity 1160cc triple engine. The engine generates 180PS peak power, up 30PS.
The peak torque now is at 125Nm, up 8Nm.The motorcycle gets an all-new
free-breathing intake and exhaust, with incredible sound. The motorcycle is now
10kg lighter, at just 198kg wet. With an all-new mass centralised chassis, the
bike is now narrower, with a more dominant and purposeful riding position.
2021 Speed Triple 1200 gets performance tuned fully adjustable Öhlins
RACETEC RR tyres and Brembo Stylema brakes. This is the smartest, sharpest and
most technologically advanced Speed Triple ever. It has optimised Cornering ABS
& switchable Optimised Cornering Traction Control (with IMU), all-new 5”
TFT instruments, five riding modes,
including enhanced Track mode, new Triumph Shift Assist up-and-down
quickshifter, new distinctive full-LED lighting, new full keyless system and
has My Triumph Connectivity System fitted as standard.
bike is also now more responsive, it is 650rpm higher revving, and comes with a
new free-breathing intake and exhaust for a hair-raising new triple soundtrack.
The powertrain has been completely re-designed, with every single element
engineered for increased performance and reduced mass, making the new engine
significantly lighter, by 7kg. It’s more compact compared to the previous Speed
Triple powertrain, despite the bigger capacity, giving the new model the
perfect balance of aggression, performance and control.
engine delivers blistering new performance, with 30PS more power and a peak
of180PS at 10,750 rpm. It revs harder, with the red line now raised by 650 rpm
to 11,150rpm, and maintains all of the incredible torque and character in the
low and mid range that the Speed Triple has always been renowned for, with 125
Nm peak torque at 9,000rpm, 8Nm more than the outgoing model.
outstanding performance of the new 3 cylinder engine, combined with the reduced
weight of the all-new Speed Triple 1200 RS, delivers the highest
power-to-weight ratio in the Speed Triple’s history, over 25% greater than the
previous generation, and nearly double the original 1994 Speed Triple.
best sounding Speed Triple ever produced
to the all-new free-breathing intake and exhaust system, the new Speed Triple
1200 RS is also the best sounding Speed Triple ever produced, with a visceral
intake roar and characteristic triple exhaust howl.
to 12% less powertrain inertia, the engine also picks up quicker, feels
sharper, and sounds sharperstill. There is a new lighter weight slip and assist
clutch which uses state-of-the-art friction compound to reduce the number of
clutch plates, minimising mass and improving clutch feel, while maximising
control during high speed downshifting.
with a completely new, and more compact, stacked 6-speed gearbox, gear changes
are significantly smoother than the previous generation, with optimised ratio
is further enhanced by the new ignition system, with twin tip spark plugs for
increased durability at high engine speeds as well as by a reduced weight of
the cooling system, neatly packaged with an integrated oil circuit heat
new Speed Triple 1200 RS has 13mm wider handlebars, delivering a more dominant
and purposeful riding position, giving better feel and control for a more
predictable ride. Improvements in the ergonomics of the bike and the riding
position are achieved through the new footrest position, which has been moved
inwards slightly from the previous generation model, allowing improved ground
clearance without compromising leg room.
improvements have also been made to the seat profile and construction, which is
now more comfortable, while allowing the rider to take a more natural tucked-in
position for focussed riding. Seat height is a comfortable 830mm.
new 1200 RS comes equipped with a step change in Speed Triple technology,
