Benefit: The cockpit is still dominated by a large analog and therefore easy-to-read tachometer. Displays for driving mode and gear are new.

Back to the real hooligan bike

With a sharper design, more power and new electronic helpers, the optimized Triumph Speed ​​Triple R ties in with its roots: an active street fighter that makes people angry, but works perfectly well in everyday life.

Triumphs S.peed Triple has long been an identity-creating icon, as typically English as the red double-decker buses in London, the texts by William Shakespeare or Fish ’n’ Chips. And as the first streetfighter ex works, it was a real trendsetter from the start. But the competition stepped up and even overtook them. Okay, Triumph never wanted to be a technology leader. But a speed triple that follows behind? No way! So it’s time for a big update. It looks more aggressive and yet elegant, the Triumph Speed ​​Triple R, wirier, more muscular.

Both versions are completely identical in terms of engines

In terms of engines, the two versions Triumph Speed ​​Triple S and Triumph Speed ​​Triple R are completely identical. Triumph has greatly refined the proven, eleven-year-old 1050 three-cylinder. 104 Changes to the interior and its periphery spice up the engine, see next page “What’s new”. The Speedy looks sharp from its deeply mounted insect eyes with integrated LED daytime running lights. Starting the triplet, you know it, you love it: the engine wakes up with a rattle and hoarse voice. The soundtrack became even more bassy, ​​powerful, but not bulky. One would hear the three-cylinder among 100 other engines. The two-sided silencers offer 70 percent more flow and are slightly lighter than before. Well, two half-height pots are no longer state of the art: rather heavy and not exactly good for the center of gravity.

The engine of the Triumph Speed ​​Triple R runs wonderfully smoothly from the first second, and mechanically much smoother than before. Thirsty for action, it comes from the completely new cable clutch with anti-hopping / servo function. Later, on the Calafat race track, this will effectively prevent a stamping rear wheel when braking on the many second-gear corners. In city traffic, however, what counts first is the noticeably lower operating force when pulling the naturally adjustable lever. Okay, you have to live with the low steering angle when maneuvering. A legacy of the style-defining double-tube bridge frame made of aluminum, which is wide at the front.

Five horsepower were added at the top

Soon the city is behind, the road ahead of us. The triple benefits from its unchanged long stroke not only on winding country roads in Catalonia: 71.4 millimeters with a 79 bore. This brings a lot of power from below. Right from the start, the Triumph Speed ​​Triple R strikes with an enormous amount of punch. The power development was even more even, between 5000 and 7000 tours there should be five percent more power, the torque culminates in a maximum of 112 Newton meters. A good yield for a well poured liter of displacement. At the top, five horsepower have been added, thanks to higher compression pistons, modified camshafts and new injection nozzles.

Apart from the now electronically controlled throttle valves, a lot of work has been done on the mixture preparation: more turbulence and finer atomization improve the filling and reduce fuel consumption. And don’t forget: the flyscreen now draws in cooler air. In addition, the engine of the Triumph Speed ​​Triple R can exhale more freely thanks to optimized manifolds and silencers.

More charisma: The Speedy 2016 looks crisper, more wiry.

What do you feel about it? Enthusiastic power from the lower speed range and a finer response to gas commands than ever before. And the triple now revs higher: if the rev limiter was already a little abruptly closed at 9500 tours, today the nominal speed is at this brand – the maximum is a full 10,000 rpm. A speed reserve that you need on the racetrack or rarely when overtaking.

The smaller tank of the Triumph Speed ​​Triple R is due to weight savings and a sharper design: It only holds 15 instead of the previous 17.5 liters. But with Euro 4, the topic of gasoline consumption will also gain in importance. According to the homologation, Triumph indicates a good five liters per 100 kilometers; then there would still be a range of 300 kilometers. The modified transmission works uncharacteristically soft for Triumph, the gears just slip in.

Five different driving modes

The new ride-by-wire enables five different driving modes: Rain, Road, Sport, Track and a freely programmable one: They influence the throttle response and the control programs (intervention thresholds) of ABS and traction control. In the individually configurable rider mode, slope professionals can switch off ABS and traction control independently of each other. The throttle valves in “Sport” and “Track” respond directly. Nevertheless, the “harsh throttle response” from rolling phases, last but not least a point of criticism in the roadster comparison test in MOTORRAD 5/2015, is now a thing of the past. The road mode, which is well suited to the country road, makes it particularly soft. You can rely on the three-stage Triumph Speed ​​Triple R traction control; it is a lifeline for the famous tenth of a second with limited liability. That creates trust.

The new Triumph Speed ​​Triple R conveys a lot of that. “I’ll get you through every curve well, safely and quickly,” she seems to whisper to you. An appealing contrast: bad boy image paired with great drivability. The more front-wheel-oriented seating position gives more feedback from the front wheel. The beautifully upholstered bench at the front was 20 millimeters narrower. The sides of the tank too, legs apart used to be. This is how you get further forward, you have the conical aluminum handlebars perfectly in your hand. It feels smaller and more compact, the 2016 Speedy is getting closer to the 675 Street Triple. Even drivers who are only 1.70 meters tall can safely reach the ground with both soles of their feet. Stylish handlebar end mirrors are quite wide and offer a reasonably good view.

With tighter damping, the Speedy is good for the race

The new Öhlins NIX 30 fork and the also golden TTX 36 shock absorber respond superbly and feel the asphalt relief with great sensitivity. For a “fighter” it is even unusually comfortable. More light-footed and more manageable than before, the Speedy circles all curve radii. Triumph has not made any changes to the chassis itself. Nevertheless, the perfectly balanced Triumph Speed ​​Triple R drives more agile without losing any of its stability. Reasons? The better integrated driver, fantastic gripping Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa?

We are in Calafat, tire warmers are being put on. Now the Triumph is once again playing the trump card of its extra thrust and predictable power output. In sport and even more so in track mode, traction control now allows more slip. Transparent and snappy, the monoblocks anchor without snapping angrily. The ABS intervenes late, you hardly notice it. If you want to provoke wheelies and stoppies – the Speedy is great at both – you have to deactivate the assistance systems. Just a few clicks of tighter damping and the Triumph Speed ​​Triple R is good for the race. She is in her element on the winding course and stays exactly on course.

With the precision of a scalpel cut, the British woman pulls her path. Seldom scratches the footpegs, only occasionally twitches gently with its stem when accelerating out – no steering damper. A great, intense driving experience. The Triumph Speed ​​Triple is a passionate motorcycle for just such riders. The price is pleasing: 12,500 euros for the “S” and 14,200 euros for the “R” (plus 450 euros for ancillary costs) are only 260 or a mere 30 euros more than the previous model. More kick for hardly any more money.
