New Triumph Speed Triple R revealed

2016 Triumph Speed Triple R seen in productionready trim

HERE'S Triumph's revised 2016 Speed Triple R spotted out testing in production-ready trim.

Last seen in a spy shot in June, this latest photo provides a better look at the high-spec R version of Triumph's super naked, with added styling details including a red sub-frame and wheel rim tape.

Updates for 2016 include a new fuel tank, different radiator side covers, a smaller tail unit and a reshaped fly screen featuring a new air scoop. Separate rider and pillion seats replace the single unit for both on the current Speed Triple R.

The R version's Brembo brake calipers are now shared by the base edition Speed Triple, as seen in a spy shot back in February.

The logo just visible on the fork bottom in our picture shows the Speed Triple R is keeping its high-spec Öhlins suspension, while the base edition retains Show units.

Triumph sent a survey to Speed Triple owners earlier this year which suggested the 1050cc three-cylinder engine could get a power hike from 133hp to 140hp. The survey also suggested the new bike’s tech will include traction control, multiple engine ‘modes’ and electronic throttles. Triumph made similar changes to the Tiger 800 this year.

Other technical changes, including a new exhaust system and catalytic converter, are thought to be targeting lower emissions to increase the model's lifespan.

The frame, which was new for the 2011 model, is unaltered.
