– 2004 Triumph Speed Triple
Some machines do have souls. The proof? The Triumph Speed Triple. There’s never been a machine quite like it and a lot of its amazing character is down to its 120PS (118bhp) fuel-injected three-cylinder motor, which stirs the soul as it devours the streets.
While the engine churns out massive performance the Speed Triple’s superb chassis carves corners in iconic style, thanks to a muscular aluminium frame, single-sided swingarm and fully adjustable suspension front and rear. A sharp steering angle of 23.5° combines with a short 1429mm (56.2in) wheelbase for total precision.
With identical 320mm discs and four-piston calipers to the Daytona 955i, the Speed Triple possesses phenomenal stopping power and, when combined with the superlative chassis and grunt-laden engine, ensures a motorcycle that is much more than mere decoration. The fact that it looks so good is an obvious bonus and the Speed Triple’s paintwork options, Jet Black, Roulette Green or stunning new Tornado Red, give the opportunity to be as loud – or reserved – as the owner wishes.
Like the Daytona 955i a special edition Speed Triple is available in 2004, with its black engine, frame, wheels, swingarm and Jet Black paint creating an essential, minimal look.
Triumph’s range of tailor-made Speed Triple accessories, including colour-matched belly pan, fly screen, high-level performance exhaust (for circuit use only) and luggage give scope for personalisation of what is already a very personal motorcycle. More than just brute metal, the Speed Triple’s an attitude made real. And an amazing riding experience.
