Speed Triple 1200 RR in stock now.
If you still want searing performance without the squashed joints, Triumphs Speed Triple 1200 RR could be the answer.
Think of it more as a big-cube, three-cylinder superbike, created in Triumphs own inimitable style.
The engine, chassis and electronics are all identical to the RS, but as well as its new caf racer-style nose fairing and single headlight, the RR has semi-active hlins suspension, a smattering of carbon fibre and clip-ons
It's stylish, beautifully made, generously equipped and tastefully mixes strong performance and track-ready handling with a relatively sensible riding position. Its electronic suspension is a highlight and delivers a plush ride, compared to its stiffer naked sibling and its fairing will make long distance riding more comfort It stops, goes and handles like a superbike and is laid out like one too.
More sophisticated suspension transforms the Triples road manners. Where the nakeds mechanically adjustable Ohlins only makes sense on smooth tarmac the RRs semi-active Ohlins suspension delivers a sumptuous ride.
But being electronic and extremely clever, the forks and shock stiffen-up when it needs to support hard braking and acceleration. You can set the RR as hard or soft as you like, either within the riding modes or fine-tune it via the dash.
Build quality and detailing are superb and as well as its fancy brakes, suspension, racy tyres and a stonking engine and chassis, the RR has lean sensitive traction control and ABS, an up/down quickshifter, colour TFT dash, LEDs all round, carbon panels, a lithium battery, keyless ignition, backlit switches and cruise control.
