SPEED TRIPLE POWER AND TORQUE There’s now even more power and torque from the next generation 1050cc Triumph Triple engine, that spins up faster and revs harder for longer. Peaking at 150PS, major engine developments have increased power throughout the entire rev range for a smooth linear power & torque delivery that gives an even more precise and intuitive ride.
BEST EVER SOUNDTRACK A new freer-flowing exhaust produces the unmistakable signature roar of a significantly enhanced Triumph Triple. Improved even further by a new lighter header system and larger catalyst, the Speed Triple S features restyled race-style silencers, while the top-spec RS is fitted with new premium high level Arrow titanium sports silencers. 105 ENGINE IMPROVEMENTS There are precisely 105 engine enhancements to this new Speed Triple engine, including new and lighter Nikasil-plated aluminum cylinder liners, a lighter crank gear, new profile pistons, new valve springs, new high-lift cam profiles, new hydraulic tensioner and tensioner blade with new rubbing strip. Further efficiency improvements have been found with a new cylinder head, new lighter balance shaft and optimized balancer drive gear.
Other new benefits include a new sump, smaller starter motor, lighter battery and alternator, and a new airbox design. In addition, the oil system has been re-routed and the fuel system revised, both for even more efficient performance. MAJOR ENGINE IMPROVEMENTS The new 1050cc Triple engine represents a major update that brings more power, a sharper response, and an even greater all-round ride, from standing start right up to the red line.
IMPROVED GEARBOX Central to the Speed Triple’s trademark balance of ride and handling is the newly improved gearbox. The new detent wheel improves gear shift quality, and a new output sprocket improves acceleration, all of which contributes to a greater feeling of rider control. GRADED SLIP ASSIST CLUTCH The graded drive gear along with the removal of the backlash gear reduce weight and improve sound, while the slip assist functionality improves clutch feel and reduces lever effort requiring a lighter touch that makes it easier for the rider to ride for longer.
