A couple of days ago Triumph teased its upcoming 2021 Triumph Speed Triple RS 1200.

In case of Speed Triple since a decade and a half, we haven’t seen Triumph bringing any extensive updates.

However, this is a big significant change. Triumph will reveal all on January 26th at 1 pm.


We see the first spy shot from the Facebook group shows the 2021 Speed Triple RS 1200 in flesh and blood.

The spy shot looks similar to the one we see in the leaked spec image below. With large exhaust, the bike is seen on the road without the camouflage.

As the shot is taken from the side, we don’t see much when it comes to its front. However, we Triumph has already teased its headlight.

Unlike any other sports bike, it does get a step seat. However, from this spy shot, we could see the pillion seat is covered.

Further, the fuel tank is smooth at the same time chiselled. The flat and short handlebar is present for excellent comfort. From the looks, we see it is a mix of sports and the naked.

The wide spoke alloy wheels look stunning. We expect the bike laden with the heavy electronic package. With a compact design, the bike may not weigh much.

What more?

With the new enlarged motor, do we see an enlarged bore well it remains a question? However, on the bore front Triumph has always been poised. 

With large motor size, the size of the housing too will have a large extent.

To accommodate it further means a new swingarm will have sufficient space. The new swingarm will also come with the updated strut mount.

For superior weight distribution, the rear shows the exhaust cans will come positioned under the engine.

And you will also be able to see it via the rear photo. The design of the headlights we see loaned from the new Street Triple and mind well they look neat and sharp.

These lights will arrive with LED technology. Further, the new Street Triple 1200 RS will get a fair amount of electronic package like the wheelie control, five modes, traction control, ride-by-wire, cornering ABS.

 In the 33 second teaser, we can also hear the sublime exhaust note. The exhaust note is not too loud and not overly sharp.

A couple of days our Belgian friends MaxxMoto did talk about the 2021 Triumph Speed Triple RS 1200 performance specs.


We said a healthy 167hp power with a torque range of 136Nm will be more useful for the upcoming Speed Triple 1200 RS. However, now it gets more.

The leaked spec sheet shows the performance specs. The prototype looks ready for the production.
