Triumph unveils 2021 Speed Triple RS 1200

 Triumph unveils 2021 Speed Triple RS 1200

Triumph Motorcycles has officially unveiled its much ambitious 2021 Speed Tripler 1200 RS.

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.

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 we could see the bike on the road without the camouflage.

As the shot is 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?

Power

Twist the throttle and feel the all-new triple accelerate you forwards with its higher capacity 1160cc triple engine. It is delivering 180PS peak power, up 30PS on the previous Speed Triple. 

Side view

And producing 125Nm of peak torque, you’ll feel your senses ignite. High revving, with an even better triple sound, it’s effortless to ride, exhilarating, and the most responsive and fastest accelerating Speed Triple ever.

Handling

Designed to bring a visceral high with every moment, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS is the lightest and best-handling Speed Triple, bar none. 

It’s 10kg lighter than the previous generation at just 198kg ready to ride, with an all-new lightweight chassis, all-new rider ergonomics and a more dominant and purposeful riding position. 

Another front view

The result is a tighter, more toned, and centralized mass bike for a more agile, precise, and dynamic ride.

Premium track equipment includes new Brembo Stylema brakes, Metzeler Racetec RR tyres and performance-tuned Ohlins suspension, all tuned for the ultimate naked performance sport ride.

The new Speed Triple 1200 RS is nothing less than a handling revolution. 

Setup 

Advanced ride-by-wire throttle technology equips the Speed Triple 1200 RS with three distinctly different throttle maps and four optimized traction control maps to bring you the response you need, no matter the conditions. 

Front view

The five customizable riding modes, Rain, Road, Sport, Track and Rider Configurable, are changed via a dedicated button on the handlebars and adjust the bike’s character with faithful throttle response, ABS traction control settings. 

Optimized Cornering ABS and switchable Optimized Cornering Traction Control ensure optimum progress and control in all conditions by continuously monitoring the lean angle of the bike.

Simultaneously, the enhanced new Track mode is present to make electronic interventions virtually imperceptible during fast track riding, leaving you to focus on the next apex.

Electronics

Packed with technology for the ultimate connected ride, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS has all-new 5” TFT instruments for easy to read the information at a glance.

Hook up your smartphone with the My Triumph Connectivity System fitted as standard, for Google turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro control, music and more. 

Stuart Wood, Chief Engineer Triumph talking

The enhanced new standard-fit Triumph Shift Assist up and down quickshifter features an improved sensor for lightning-fast upshifts and smooth, precise clutchless downshifts. 

All-new, full LED lighting with stunning new headlights, signature DRL, and sculpted rear light transform the unique 1200 RS style and lighting capability, with a whiter, brighter and incredibly distinctive new setup. 

The feedback and inspiration comes from Moto2 as well
