For 2012, Triumph has launched a premium version of its naked Speed Triple, the Speed Triple R on the 24th January, 2012 at Jerez in Spain. The Triumph Speed Triple R feature Öhlins NIX30 43mm fork in front and a TTX36 rear shock, both tuned with higher spring rates compared to the standard model.
The Speed Triple R is adorned with Brembo Monobloc front calipers (ABS is standard) and carbon-fiber bits. To minimize the weight as much as possible, the lightweight five-spoke forged aluminum wheels from PVM are used to deliver even more precise and agile handling. The Triumph Speed Triple R comes in either Phantom Black or Crystal White color options.
