History
The Speed Triple, with its mix of a monstrously powerful three-cylinder engine, top quality chassis and an aggressive, stripped down stance, enters its fourteenth year as part of Triumph’s Urban Sports range. This year it brings with it a host of styling refinements including, a redesigned radiator, brand new rear sub-frame, new LED rear light, Brembo radial front calipers, black anodised front forks and new tapered anodised aluminium handlebars. Harder than ever, the Speed Triple retains its status as the definitive factory streetfighter.
