2020 Triumph Speed Triple RS : HIGHEST LEVEL OF PEDIGREE.

2020 Triumph Speed Triple RS.

Aggressive, agile and purposeful; the legendary Triumph Speed Triple created the performance naked category back in 1994 and coined the phrase ‘factory streetfighter’. The latest generation of Triumph’s modern motorcycle icon builds on the Speed Triple’s perfect balance of power, handling, and capability, making it the most advanced and powerful Speed Triple ever built. The new S and RS models are improved in every way, with the RS having the highest ever level of specification to reflect its new name and pedigree.

The new models now feature all new high-gloss ten-spoke wheels for a more premium and contemporary look, while retaining the instantly recognisable aggressive, nose-down, focussed attitude that the Speed Triple is loved for. The new race-style upswept twin silencers on the Speed Triple S have a larger bore and are fitted with aluminium heat shields, a black-painted body and a more slender stainless-steel end cap. Lightweight sports silencers are standard on the RS and they bring a significant improvement to the roar of the Triple engine, making the latest model the best sounding Speed Triple sound ever.

The new generation Speed Triple S and RS incorporate a major engine development and advanced engineering for performance enhancement and a weight saving. All 105 new engine components play a role to offer more power and torque throughout the rev range and a smoother, more linear power delivery. Peak power is now 7% higher than the previous generation at 150 PS and peak torque is up 4% at 117 Nm.

Technology

LED Indicators

Highlighting the attention to detail of the Triumph Speed Triple, slim-line LED indicators are fitted (in applicable markets). Featuring a crafted polished aluminium body, the indicators add a finishing touch to the new slim profile styling.

 

RBW Throttle

The new Triumph Speed Triple features a ride-by-wire throttle that interprets grip position for more instant and accurate throttle response and control. It also has the added benefit of improving engine efficiency and fuel economy.

 

Single Sided Swingarm

More than just a signature styling characteristic, the new Speed Triple’s single-sided swingarm is engineered to optimise handling stability – not to mention making it easier to clean the rear wheel, or remove it when changing the rear tyre.

 

Riding Modes

The new Speed Triple features five selectable riding modes – Rain, Road, Sport, Track and a Rider-configurable mode. Each mode varies throttle response, ABS settings and traction control levels. Rain provides a softer throttle response, whilst Sport and Track provide a sharper, more aggressive throttle map. The riding modes can be quickly changed via new handlebar switchgear during riding, you can flip between road and track whenever the conditions or the mood takes you… or better still if the twisties come calling.

 

Twin Silencers

The under seat exhaust on the new Triumph Speed Triple, with black wrap and shot-blasted and anodised aluminium heat shields, are lightweight and incredibly efficient, but best of all, they sound incredible.

 

Styling

With its bold, distinctive looks, the Speed Triple is one of the most instantly recognisable silhouettes. The new Speed Triple takes this to the next level; aggressive and hunkered nose down, new low profile stance, more focused, more athletic, more streamlined. New twin headlights, single-sided swingarm and underseat exhaust are its signature. The new Speed Triple redefines the look and iconic style.

 

Handlebar Clamps and Risers

Exclusive to the new Speed Triple R, outstanding attention to high quality detail is evident immediately when you reach for its handlebars. The wide alloy bars are held by a pair of clamps and risers exquisitely machined from a solid aluminium billet, designed for style, engineered for substance.

 

Mudguard and Tank Infill Panels

Saving every ounce of weight makes a big difference in performance. That’s why the Speed Triple R features an exclusive, lightweight carbon fibre front mudguard and a pair of carbon fibre tank infill panels, both for that high-performance style and to save weight.

 

Rear Wheel Finisher

The smallest details can make the biggest impact, which is why the new Triumph Speed Triple R comes with a rear wheel finisher made from machined billet of aluminium. A true reflection of our attention to detail.

 

‘R’ Styling Features

The dynamics of the Triumph Speed Triple front end is epitomised by a pair of signature profiled headlights and fly screen that incorporates its air intake scoop between the lights, giving a lower more aggressive look.

Fuel Tank

Radiator Shrouds

A narrow radiator gives the Speed Triple a slim front end profile. The sleek radiator cowls and a bellypan (standard fit on the R version) adds to the distinctive design silhouette.

 

Twin Seat

The new Triumph Speed Triple’s seat is a separate two-piece design, focussed to deliver the best individual shape for comfort. The rider’s seat has 20mm narrower front profile which aids control and improves ‘stand-over’, but is also now wider and more supportive at the back making it even more comfortable. The Triumph logo is embossed on the leading edge of the pillion seat, giving added detail.

Riding and Handling

The Triumph Speed Triple is defined by its ability to deliver dynamic handling in all riding conditions and the new Speed Triple builds on that reputation. A forward, aggressive riding position ensures total control, total confidence, whether you’re forging a path through urban sprawl, sweeping at speed across the countryside or hitting the apex at a race track.

 

Suspension

The new Speed Triple S has preload, compression and rebound damping-adjustable 43mm upside-down Showa forks and Showa monoshock rear suspension unit, utilising factory honed settings. The Speed Triple R uses 43mm Öhlins NIX30 upside down forks and Öhlins TTX36 twin tube rear monoshock both fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping. This all means it sticks to the road when the throttle is open and the bends are calling.

 

Wheels, Brakes and Tyres

For the ultimate in stopping power, the new Triumph Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R both use radial Brembo monobloc calipers, gripping 320mm discs, in conjunction with switchable, variable ABS. Adding to all-round braking performance and balanced high-grip and durability, both Speed Triple S and Speed Triple R use Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tyres running on light, cast aluminium wheels.

 

Frame

With heritage drawn from the ground-breaking 1995 Triumph Daytona T595 superbike, the new Speed Triple has a twin spar tubular aluminium frame bringing its perfect blend of rigidity and feel.

 

Chassis overview

The new Triumph Speed Triple has agility, stability and engagement at the heart of its handling characteristics. With its dynamic and refined ride balanced by a bold, aggressive attitude you will find yourself looking for excuses to take the long way home for maximum fun and maximum thrills.
