New for 2011 is the latest incarnation of Triumph’s most iconic model – the Speed Triple.
With an all-new chassis, the 1050cc 2011 Speed Triple delivers a new level of handling and composure
to the super naked class. With a sharper and even more aggressive look, and more power from the
legendary 1050cc triple, this new model looks set to add further to a legacy that has seen over 65,000
Speed Triples sold since its introduction in 1994.

The beautifully sculpted frame retains the traditional Speed Triple styling cues, such as the twin
over-engine spars and single-sided swingarm, but the geometry is all-new. Weight distribution has been
improved by moving the engine forward in the frame and relocating the battery in front of the airbox,
creating a Speed Triple that sets new standards in handling, stability and agility.

At 214kg fully fuelled, the 2011 Speed Triple is a whole 3kg lighter than the previous model. Front and
rear wheels are each over one kilogram lighter, while the narrower frame and improved packaging
allows for increased ground clearance and makes the machine feel incredibly light and nimble.

The new 43mm forks offer excellent control and plushness and are fully-adjustable for preload,
rebound and compression damping on both legs, while Brembo radial caliper brakes grip 320mm
discs which are 0.5mm thinner than the outgoing Speed Triple for further reduction in unsprung
weight. ABS is an option for the first time on the Speed Triple.

All-new body panels and heavily sculpted seat accentuate the Speed Triple’s aggressive street
fighting stance and complement the newly-styled twin headlights. Colour-coded radiator cowls are a
new feature and sport new decals. Three colour options are available: Crystal White, Phantom Black
and Diablo Red, with colour-coded flyscreen, seat cowl and belly pan available as genuine
Triumph accessories.

Ergonomics have been improved and the 820mm seat height is lower than the previous Speed Triple.
The all-new riding position makes the Speed Triple more accessible and comfortable than before,
placing the rider further forward and inspiring much more confidence when carving through twisting
corners.

Triumph’s 1050cc triple is just about the only thing that carries over from the previous model, although
even that hasn’t remained untouched. The already class-leading torque has been increased by 8%
to 111Nm at 7750rpm, with a 5PS increase in power to give the Speed Triple a mighty 135PS at
the top end. With Triumph’s latest generation ECU software and modified exhaust system, the new
Speed Triple delivers its raw power in a satisfyingly refined manner.
