2015 Triumph Speed Triple R ABS Review

2015 Triumph Speed Triple R ABS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The approach to our roadsters is simple. If it doesn’t enhance the power, handling, feel or sound of the bike it doesn’t go on it.

The purest, hardest performing and most rewarding naked sports motorcycle available today. We took the Speed Triple, the world’s first and best factory streetfighter with its head-turning, angry style and its 135PS three-cylinder engine. Then added the best components the motorcycle industry can offer, from Öhlins, Pirelli and Brembo. A plethora of exquisitely designed accessories complete the R transformation – fly screen, belly pan and seat cowl, whilst the Diablo Red radiator shrouds further boast of the R’s pedigree.

The result is the Speed Triple R, cutting edge real world performance to thrill the most committed rider.

Based on the already high performing and agile Speed Triple. The R gives you sharper steering and even better feedback for the most intense, tactile and satisfying ride from any Triumph ever made.

The Speed Triple never tried to hide what it was, a cutting edge sports bike with performance honed for the street. But the R screams it.


 


2015 Triumph Speed Triple R ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Features
ABS

The four piston, radially mounted Brembo front callipers, with optional electronic ABS make 100 calculations per second to prevent wheel lock up at either end.
Immobiliser

We’ve made sure your bike is protected by a coded key immobiliser system, should your Speed Triple R attract the wrong kind of attention. It disables the ignition if it detects an attempt to turn or force the ignition switch without the presence of the electronically coded correct key.
Instruments and Computer

We added all the instrumentation a rider needs. Including programmable gear change lights, service interval reminder, lap timer, trip computer and fuel gauge.

All designed to be used by the performance rider, it’s part digital, part analogue and laid out in a highly intuitive fashion to make absorbing the array of information as easy and quick as possible.

 

The Speed Triple R moves the Speed Triple to another level of chassis performance, for the ultimate in track and demanding road handling. The R comes loaded with the most top-drawer components from the biggest names to deliver a new standard in poise, agility and chassis control.

Multi –adjustable ÖhlinsNIX30 43mm forks and TTX36 rear suspension
Brembo four-piston radial monoblock calipers with advanced switchable ABS
Pirelli supercorsa SP tyres
R branded tapered black alloy handlebars, unique decals and a striking red subframe all mark the Speed Triple R as a machine of distinction for those in the know.

2015 Triumph Speed Triple R ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine
Performance

The engine is the same muscle-packed 1050cc triple that powers the Speed Triple. And it delivers a huge punch. But every real rider knows, the key to its real world performance is the broad spread of torque and instant throttle response.

With 135PS maximum there’s enough high-end performance to satisfy you on a serious track day. Then there’s the Speed Triple R’s 111Nm of peak torque, with lots more thrust on tap lower down the rev range no matter what the gear and a seemingly endless flow of power that’s predictable and easy to use.
Configuration

We matched the transmission carefully to the engine, with six ratios in the gearbox to make sure there’s always one that’s perfect at any moment of your ride. While the wet, multi-plate clutch has a lightweight and predictable lever action to make fast getaways easy and town riding effortless.
Exhaust

The twin silencers, wrapped in black exaust heat shields, sitbeneath the short, stubby tail section of the Speed Triple R and leave the rear wheel fully exposed on the right by the cool, single-sided swingarm.

Not for looks, for real world sports bike riding. It just happens to look great.

 

Chassis
Suspension

Choosing the suspension wasn’t just a case of looking for the best and bolting it on.

Extensive testing by our own and Öhlins highly experienced development riders on road and track means the internals were developed specifically for Triumph and the Speed Triple R.

In the NIX30 forks and TTX36 shock, the rebound and compression damping functions are completely separated to give you more precise damping control and both offer a huge range of settings to suit your ride.
Frame

The frame is the same doubled-tube, twin spar design recognisable from the 1997 model. Although the current version was updated in 2011, so it now uses the engine as a crucial frame component, making the chassis stiffer and lighter for a more focussed ride.
Brakes

We’ve added Brembo Monobloc callipers to the R for 5 per cent more stopping power than the standard Speed Triple’s Brembos. And their single-piece construction helps reduce distortion at extreme pressures for more accurate feedback.

The optional electronic ABS makes 100 calculations per second to prevent wheel lock up at either end.
Wheels and Tyres

We fitted lightweight cast aluminium wheels and a wide 6 inch rim on the back to take the grippiest, sports-focused rubber the Speed Triple R deserves
Swingarm

The swingarm is aluminium and features an eccentric chain adjuster so that the rear wheel stays perfectly in line with the front for a focussed, precise handling.
Riding Position

The Speed Triple R is pure sports bike with a real world edge. So we designed the riding position for accurate control and aggressive performance in everyday riding situations. We set the bars low, the footrests in a rear set position and the seat is deeply shaped to keep you in position during hard use but still allows you to slide off the sides of the bike.

It’s a forward biased stance essential for keeping weight over the front of the bike, so you can feel exactly what the forks and tyre are doing and explore cornering limits, shifting weight to keep the front end in contact with the ground.

All from a road-going motorcycle that you can use in heavy traffic, slow speed town riding and occasional long distance trips.
