Triumph Speed Triple RR is Brit’s attempt to add versatility to its roadster range. It is not promoted as a thoroughbred track tool…
Triumph has taken the covers off its new cafe-racer styled semi faired offering which is called as Speed Triple RR. The Brit has tweaked the design of its new liter-class quite significantly.
It has also been made clear that this motorcycle is made as road focused and is not a track scorcher like the Daytonas.
The new RR is available in two color options – Red Hopper/Storm Grey and Crystal White/Storm Grey. Speed Triple RR is priced at $20,950 which is equivalent to INR 15.42 Lac.
Instead of the old mantis style headlamp of the RS, the Speed Triple RR comes with a round headlamp giving it a retro look.
Also, instead of the usual naked sidelines, the new Speed Triple RR comes with semi-fairings that are also not very edgy like regular faired bikes but are more rounded.
The seat height has also been lowered and Triumph claims that there is enough substance for the rider to make the new Speed Triple RR cruise through the streets as well as blaze through the tracks.
Even though there is a substantial change in the design, Triumph has managed to retain the aggression and power in its new liter-class machine.
Powering the new Speed Triple RR is the same engine you get on the naked supersport variant the Speed Triple RS – a liquid-cooled, DOHC, 1160cc inline-3 engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox. This motor delivers 180 PS of peak power at 10750 RPM and 125 Nm of peak torque at 9,000 RPM.
Among key features, the new RR gets fully adjustable Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 electronically adjustable USD forks, Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 rubbers, Slipper clutch for smooth transmission, etc.
The RR fetches the same set of electronics you will find on its naked supersport sibling the 2021 Speed Triple RS. These include five riding modes, advanced wheelie control, cornering ABS, traction control, a bi-directional quick-shifter, and cruise control.
Riders can adjust settings through the colored five-inch TFT instrument panel. The Brit has made connectivity easier through the My Triumph system.
The new supersport will be available at Triumph dealerships starting January 2022. There will be 30 genuine accessories available to customize the superbike as per the rider’s requirements. When will it come to India is not known…
