2012 Triumph Speed Triple R Review


When it comes to upping the performance of a vehicle – whether two wheels or four – simply adding the letter R to the name has seemingly become standard practice these days. It's gotten a bit predictable, actually, and even Triumph has jumped on the bandwagon with the Street Triple and Daytona 675 both recently getting the R treatment, which includes suspension and brake upgrades and of course a few graphic touches to differentiate between the standard models.

It should come as no surprise then to see the iconic Speed Triple as the next in line to receive the R makeover. Specifically, Triumph has outfitted the new Speed Triple R with an Öhlins NIX30 43mm fork in front and a TTX36 rear shock, both tuned with higher spring rates compared to the standard model. Compression and rebound damping in the fork are separated, so each stanchion can focus on its specific task.
