5 Interesting Details Of The Speed Triple 1200 RS

It wouldn’t be wrong to call the latest Triumph the resurrection of the Speed Triple



Triumph Motorcycles has launched the Speed Triple 1200 RS and now their entire line up is complete, sort of. So, here are five things you should know about the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS:

More Power, Baby!

Speed Triple 1200 RS Engine

The new Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS is powered by a Euro5/BS6 compliant, liquid-cooled, inline triple 1160cc motor that makes 180PS at 10,750rpm and 125Nm at 9,000rpm. That’s 30PS and 8Nm more than the previous-gen Speed Triple. Moreover, the engine has shed as much as 7kg of mass. The Speed Triple 1200 RS is the most powerful three-cylinder bike on sale--yes, more powerful than even the Triumph Rocket 3.


Triumph Speed Triple RHS

Triumph has priced the Speed Triple 1200 RS at Rs 16.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Whereas, its present rival in India: Kawasaki ZH2-- costs Rs 21.90 lakh for the STD variant and Rs 25.90 lakh for the SE variant.

Better Underpinnings

Speed Triple 1200 RS Suspension

The Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS gets all the goodies you’d want on a motorcycle of this capacity. Triumph has equipped the bike with fully adjustable Öhlins NIX30 upside-down fork and Öhlins TTX36 twin tube monoshock. Anchoring the Speed Triple 1200 RS are twin 320mm discs with Brembo Stylema radial monobloc front callipers and 220mm disc with Brembo twin-piston rear calliper. Along all these fancy bits, the new Triumph Speed Triple is shod with Metzeler Racetec RR rubber.

Eye Candy

Speed Triple 1200 RS Headlight

Looks are subjective, but one thing’s for sure: the new Speed Triple will definitely attract your attention. The Speed Triple 1200 RS looks nothing short of a very well poised streetfighter. The signature bug-eyed headlamps, aerodynamic bodywork and last but not least, the matte finish makes the Triumph Speed Triple a head-turner. It is available in two paint schemes: Sapphire Black with red and silver graphics & Matt Silver Ice with black, silver and yellow graphics.
