Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR


THE SPEED TRIPLE 1200 RR IS ESSENTIALL­Y A FAIRED VERSION of the Speed Triple 1200 RS. It uses the same 1160-cc in-line threecylin­der motor that puts out 180 hp at 10,750 rpm and a peak torque of 125 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The bike features a half fairing which is wrapped around the round headlight at the front, a new clip-on handlebar unit, and re-positioned foot-pegs. This gives it a slightly different riding position as compared to the 1200 RS.

The bike also features a better suspension set-up as it makes use of the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 electronic­ally adjustable semiactive unit. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that come shod with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 rubber. The bike has a kerb weight of 199 kg, thus making it only one kilo heavier than its naked sibling. Apart from that, it is equipped with the same suite of electronic­s that we have seen in the 1200 RS.
