No but do you realize !!! He was one of the first to make a mess in the streets, one of the most punk gang bosses in the streets of London, a twink smasher like it’s not allowed … and many thugs came for twist his connecting rods. Unthinkable, and yet…
And yet, when I look at him, this wolf motorcycle with a heart of steel, I tell myself that he hides his game well. From one charge step to another, the silhouette of the English streetfighter has not changed . The continuity of an enslaving identity, where the gaze is perhaps one of the most important in motorcycling history. Today, the Triumph 1050 Speed Triple returns stronger, more successful, more technological, more exhilarating.
And will charm with the same paces. In this development, it has lost part of its name. It is no longer the Speed Triple 100 S but Speed Triple S. The centenary is disappearing; anyway, we never understood what he meant … or what he wanted. To better distinguish the vintages, look instead on the rims. Yesteryear’s Y-poles give way to biased stems, similar in design to the forged aluminum PVM wheels of the very first Speed Triple R. Apart from the shoes, you will need a good knowledge of stickers to recognize it. Or directly stare at the new dashboard, just to widen your eyes with envy.
Here is, we enter another dimension. That of full digital, tablets, colors and digital life. In turn, Miss Speed wins a TFT counter of the most beautiful effect. Little Sister Street got the ball rolling and then the Tigers got hold of it. Unbearable for the star Triumph roadster to continue to do without it. Thanks to this living 5-inch screen, the pilot becomes acquainted with the on-board information with a slight fascination. In addition, it can display three different display styles associated with driving modes. There are four of them on the Speed S: Road, Sport, Rain and Rider.
It takes more to satisfy the technological biker. The latter will be most satisfied with the new backlit controls. A real treat, from the latest Tiger. And which is slowly developing in the modern motorcycle sphere. And to think that it’s been 50 years since the controls are lit in the cars…
Again ? Dac, no worries. Cruise control is also on board. And for safety, we find ABS and traction control; disconnectable for those who want to play recklessly. The seasoned will be delighted, the novices will have to learn to master the big 3 cylinders, more vigorous than ever.
It has come a long way into the 3-cylinder, and it continues to evolve. Even if some would have liked a new base, it is clear that the 1050 still has some under its belt. Triumph changed no less than 105 new parts to give it more watts, more liveliness, and more torque at all speeds. This wave of the magic wand brings him a nice handful of 10 extra horses. With 150 nags to distribute, the Speed Triple can return to battle with its head held high. And even if it still makes it to the tops of the segment, its character and its galvanized ardor will blow the thrilling. The torque, meanwhile, increased by 4% to establish a maximum of 11.9 mkg.
To find watts, the engine manufacturers had to make the mechanics take turns. Peak power is now 1000 rpm higher, at 10,500 rpm. Whatever, the boiler is announced more lively in its revving. In order to achieve this result, the manufacturer increased the compression ratio, changed the pistons, lightened the aluminum liners and the crankshaft pinion, installed new valve springs and high-lift cam profiles, redesigned the gearbox. air and improved exhaust flow. The revised cylinder head allows a better exit of the gases, which pass through an enlarged catalyst and a lighter catalytic system.
We also worked on various ancillary elements: lighter battery and alternator, a new oil circuit to remove a few pipes and ventilate the style, a slightly retouched gearbox and a smaller starter..
Always very appreciated and of quality, the chassis resumes its mission without modification. Far inspired by that of the captivating 955 Daytona, the perimeter frame in aluminum tubes receives the services of a single-sided arm, an inverted 43 mm fork and a shock absorber, both signed Showa; and adjustable from anywhere. For the brakes, Brembo, powerful and convincing at will. The equipment chosen concerns radial monobloc M4.34 calipers on 320 mm discs for the front; and a 255mm disc for a dual piston caliper at the rear.
The R version is renewed in the catalog but is now called RS. Always with high-end equipment including suspensions Öhlins, less weight (3 kg), more advanced electronic assistance with an inertial unit, an additional driving mode (Track), carbon parts, a pair of Arrow mufflers and a keyless start system.
