21 Years of The Speed Triple
In 1994 the original Speed Triple burst into showrooms and set the scene for 21 years of naked dominance by mixing cool, cafÃ© racer culture with the muscular aggression of the streetfighter scene, wrapped up in sportsbike-style handling prowess. The combination was an instant hit, wowing all kinds of riders from the spectrum of biking. Whether you were a hard-core sportsbike enthusiast or a relaxed Sunday-afternoon cruiser, you could find what you wanted in the Speed Triple.
Since then, the Speed Triple has constantly moved with the times, evolving to keep pace with customer needs and the demands of modern riding, but always faithfully delivering the same core philosophy of raw, naked good looks coupled with outstanding handling. Each new evolution has benefitted from advances in engine and chassis performance, but all have retained the indomitable physical stance and raw attitude of the original inline triple, and each developing its own band of passionate owners and fans.
Today, that vision is brought full circle with the new Speed 94 and Speed 94R each loaded with styling and design cues that echo the original and provide a fitting celebration of 21 years at the cutting edge of the class.
The Speed 94 and Speed 94R unite both ends of the Speed Triple story, combining the modern Speed Triple engine and chassis package together with stylistic and visual elements of the very first, original Speed Triple from 1994. The result is, literally, the best of both worlds.
The heart of the Speed 94 and Speed 94R is a modern, fuel-injected three-cylinder 1050cc motor producing an astonishing 135PS and 111Nm of torque. The powerplant is matched to an aluminium trellis frame, beefy single-sided swingarm, fully adjustable 43mm upside-down Showa forks and monoshock, and Brembo radial calipers equipped with Triumph’s anti-lock brake system. The Speed 94 signature look is completed with a host of styling and design cues to echo the original 1994 Speed Triple, either in striking Racing Yellow or moody Jet Black, specially re-formulated to match the first Speed Triple paint schemes and finished with decals in the original Speed Triple script.
The purest, hardest performing and most rewarding naked sports motorcycle of its time. Marking the new generation with a head-turning, angry style and marrying this distinctive silhouette to a snarling 135PS three-cylinder engine. The latest R model adds in the best components the motorcycle industry can offer, including Ohlins suspension, Pirelli tyres and Brembo brakes. Diablo Red detailing of the radiator shrouds clearly identify the performance pedigree of this outstanding roadster.
Debuting the snarling 1050cc triple in a dedicated performance chassis, the T1050 provided a contemporary update to the then signature twin headlight/single-sided swingarm Speed Triple profile. With an aggressive short, sharp chassis and distinctive underseat twin exhausts the 2005 model added a new level of raw aggression to the marque, delivering sublime handling with an unmatched and much-loved triple soundtrack.
Taking the sports chassis of its Daytona stablemate the 1997 Speed Triple debuted design characteristics that have resonated with the model ever since. A purposeful single-sided swingarm combines the beauty of design with the stark profile of dominant twin “bug-eye” headlights. Combined with a lithe, twin tube frame snaking around a raucous three cylinder powerplant the Speed Triple now contained an explosive elegance and cemented the perfect blend of power and handling as the blueprint for the definitive factory streetfighter.
The origin of the breed. Launched in 1994 the brutally simple Triumph Speed Triple featured a new blend of cafÃ© racer style and streetfighter stance. With a three cylinder engine delivering power via a performance orientated chassis the Speed Triple instantly become the benchmark for the class. Generating an army of dedicated fans, the T300’s menacing profile and engaging ride have spawned generation after generation of Speed Triple and this iconic model is now celebrated in 2015’s new Speed 94 anniversary edition – a contemporary evolution that remains true to the original in every respect.

The heart of the Speed 94 is, as it was 21 years ago, an exceptionally torque-rich inline three-cylinder engine.

The liquid-cooling, double overhead cams of the Speed Triple operate 12 valves and rev out beyond 10,000rpm.
And, we’ve finely tuned the three-into-two exhaust like a musical instrument to enhance the engine’s torque and make it snarl even more angrily as the revs build.
Controlling the Speed 94 monumental engine performance is a well-established, tried-and-tested chassis set-up consisting of an aluminium trellis frame, chunky single-sided swingarm, fully adjustable 43mm upside-down Showa forks and monoshock, and Brembo radial calipers equipped with Triumph’s anti-lock brake system.
