The British motorcycle manufacturer has recently launched the street triple and its bigger sibling, the speed triple, is just around the corner
Triumph entered the Indian market in 2013 and since then, it has always been on the moneyas far as sales are to be considered. The 67 per cent jump in demand it received in 2016 justifies the statement. The manufacturer is now all set to launch the 2017 Speed Triple, the flagship motorcycle from Triumph in the naked bike segment. The Triumph Speed Triple was first showcased at the 2015 EICMA motor show in Milan, Italy. The new motorcycle carries forward the same design language as the previous bike but gets sharper lines with more detailing.
The bike is powered by an upsized 1050cc, triple-cylinder engine which develops 140PS @ 9500rpm and a peak torque of 112Nm @ 7850rpm, mated to a six-speed gearbox. It gets sharper looking headlamps, built-in DRLs, LED turn indicators, twin seats, bar-end mirrors, narrower and sharper looking fuel tank and dual matt black under seat exhaust with aluminium heat shields. The bike is constructed around a twin-spar frame. Suspension duties are handled by 43mm Showa USD forks with 120mm travel at the front and Showa monoshock unit with 130mm travel at the rear.
The bike gets 320mm semi-floating discs at the front with 4-piston radial Brembo caliper at the front and single 255mm disc with Nissin caliper at the rear. Assisting the mechanical bits, Triumph has offered the bike with ride-by-wire throttle control, slipper clutch, switchable traction control, switchable ABS and five riding modes – Rain, Road, Sport, Track and a customizable rider mode which lets riders select the electronics in a way that suits his/her riding technique and surrounding conditions.
The new Speed Triple is expected to be priced around Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Once launched, it will take the likes of Ducati Monster 1200, Suzuki GSX-S1000, BMW S1000R and the recently launched Kawasaki Z1000.
