Cologne Bike Show: 2011 Triumph Speed Triple video

Triumph has officially pulled the wraps off the 2011 Speed Triple at the Intermot show in Cologne today and MCN was there to film it. Read more about the bike in the speed triple launch centre The bike is set to be the most exciting yet, with more power, less weight and a more nimble feel, mimicking the 675cc Street Triple. http://link.brightcove.com/services/link/bcpid771491905http://www.brightcove.com/channel.jsp?channel=711881422     ...

My eyes! It burns!!

I know the new headlights drag a lot of attention, truly killing the identity of the speed triple. However I'm surprised no one noticed the tank! What is that Japanese styled horror?! Triumph are bad comedians, come back in a couple of month with something else. If we can get a plus from this, is that the 2010 model will be cheaper, yay!

What a bunch of miserable wakners...

You lot have no sense of style! I look forward to seeing this "in the metal", so to speak but from what I can see in this video, Triumph have moved the design on without sacrificing what has made the Speed Triple one of the great bikes of this century! If the handling's as promised and there's a bit more grunt it'll be another winner.

First impression.........er........the headlights!!!! They need to be simpler,to many angles,do not suit the style of bike.A screen does make an improvement though.I don't think it would put me off if i was in the market for a bike of this type and of course their are all sorts of weird headlight arrangements out there.I would have a test ride,i bet the sceptics will be easily won over.

Those lights look mean...I think the old front end was way outdated - this is a real improvement!! All it needs is a flyscreen, belly pan, and undertray.... It will look awsome!!

Huge Disappointment!

 Thought Triumph was going to pull a mean with the speed triple but looking at it just makes me puke. I knew it needed a makeover but this just looks just plain weird. I guess this is what happens when a good CEO leaves a company, a complete mess!

Not sure about the looks....headlights look like the eyes of an alien. Prefer the Street Triple

Blown It

What a huge let-down. All they needed to do was freshen it up, get some small projector beam lights on, reduce weight and increase power slightly. Instead we get a bike that may be lighter but actually looks like bloated, with hideous lights.
