Cologne Bike Show: 2011 Triumph Speed Triple gallery

Triumph's all new 2011 Speed Triple is set to be the most exciting yet, with more power, less weight and more nimble feel mimicking the 675cc Street Triple. Triumph officially pull the wraps off the new model today at the Intermot show in Cologne. It has a brand new chassis, new five-spoke wheels, new Showa forks and shock and is claimed...

Spee trip or is it a Benelli tnt look a like

Maybe i'm used too the looks of the present Speed Triple but this new model is a no-no at least for now.

The one bike Triumph have produced and made a success of is now,if you look at it,a Benelli TNT and Moto Morini cross over look-a-like.

If you can,get hold of pics of these other two bikes and compare them with this new model,the tank,rad covers,exhaust,seat,seat unit even down to the red colour,makes it look very similar too these other makes and models.

Don't misunderstand,there's nothing wrong with these other bikes,no,but Triumph is British and British bikes have always had a uniqueness about them.......called individuality, with a dash of the old fashioned,we won't change values thrown in.

Yes,the old SPD TRP,needed freshening up, but not to this extent surely?

If this bike had been designed by say,Benelli then yeah,it would great,but because its made by Triumph i feel(personally),its lost its British identity and that is what helps sell the Triumph name!:mad:

Triumph Speed Triple.

Yes, personally like the new style. Old headlights always looked like someone had taken the fairing off and left the headlights on. I think this is an improvement and I'm tempted to swap for my Sprint St.! Needs the little screen to finish it off though!

Mixed feelings on this one. The bike on the whole looks realy good and less weight makes it very interesting, it's what I like about my Street-3-R. But, they've gone from "bug eye" headlights to something which reminds me of my maths teacher's glasses, from the 70s. "What does 3x make"? "Er and omelette miss", "Get out boy". Another seat which pushes my nuts into the tank and the pillion almost perched on your shoulders.
