It looks like Triumph is readying a faired version of the Speed Triple 1200 RS to catch the attention of superbike aficionados.
Triumph has revealed the first teasers of the upcoming Speed Triple RR, and superbike fans have every reason to rejoice – that's because the teaser reveals a faired motorcycle prototype, which, as per some reports, is most likely to be a faired version of the existing Speed Triple 1200 RS.
For now, Triumph has only revealed a few design details of the Speed Triple RR prototype and a 48-second teaser video, which means that confirmed details are scarce at the moment. However, the website's 'keep me informed' space does mention, 'when all is revealed in September,' hinting at a potential reveal next month.
To refresh the memory of our readers, the updated Speed Triple 1200 RS was launched in India in January 2021, just a couple of days after its global reveal. The bike's now powered by a larger 1,160cc three-cylinder powerhouse, which pumps out 178bhp (30bhp more than before) and 125Nm of torque. Plus, a lighter aluminium chassis results in a weight loss of about 10kgs compared to the previous model.
As for the info that the Speed Triple RR teasers give us, it looks like it'll feature an MV Agusta Superveloce 800-inspired retro single headlight design, and given the placement of the handlebars (which doesn't look very extreme), expect it to be more of a road-friendly sports bike rather than a full-blown track scorcher.
In terms of equipment and features, expect it to have more or less the same kit as the Speed Triple 1200 RS. Hopefully, we'll have more details to share soon.
