Details have been revealed about the 2012 Triumph Speed Triple and compared to the 2011 model which was fantastic; the current version is just a collection of some small modifications done here and there. The 2012 Triumph Triple is going to be launched at the EICMA motor show. The bike going to be featured there will be having the ‘R’ designation denoting its upgraded Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and PVM wheels. The bike features Ohlins NIX30 43 mm fork at the front and TTX36 rear shockers. Triumph claims adding the Ohlins suspension is going to improve the ride feel of the bike. Flickability has been improved also with addition of PVM’s 5 spoke forged aluminum wheels which are 3.7 lbs lighter than the stock ones.
It also comes with 4 piston radial monoblock brake calipers from Brembo for greater stopping power. When combined with the PVM wheels, the British brand claims that the Speed Triple R has a 5% increase in braking performance over the standard Speed Triple. ABS is also being offered as an optional extra. The bike comes in 2 colour options- Phantom Black and Crystal White along with the painted red sub-frame and detailing. We are expecting more details will be revealed at the EICMA show.
