Speed Triple gets the ‘R’ treatment

These are the first pictures of Triumph’s hotly-rumoured, new-for-2012 Speed Triple R – a special, uprated version of its best-selling super naked. Following in the footsteps of Triumph’s previous Street Triple R and Daytona 675 R, the new Speed Triple R is essentially an uprated version of the standard machine. As such it gets uprated Ohlins suspension, tasty Brembo Monobloc brakes, special,...

I love my Speed. But, I have to admit that this one looks fantastic. I am sure that the extras will make it feel even more aggressive. So, I am happy NOT to have that temptation. Nice one Triumph!

The standard one without bodywork add-ons is about £8600, with bodywork add-ons £9 something. I reckon this will be in excess of £10k before adding seat cowl, headlight thingy, bellypan and tail tidy.

As there's a lack of SV1200 available from Suzuki, it looks like it's down to the Ducati 848 Streetfighter and the Speed Triple R for me but at what price? At the moment, I'm still thinking the Duke looks good value but I'll hang on to see in what colours the standard 2012 Speed Triple comes in first.

2012 could be an expensive year for me .....or maybe I'll just hang on to my 2005 model......hmmm

I love the specs, but prefered the colors scheme on the Street Triple R. Too much red for my taste. Would have loved seeing an all blacked out version (including forks) with maybe just a touch of red to let you know it's en R version.

Ravishing R not......?

Triumph have been busy,and yes they have made this SPEED TRIPLE 1050 look that bit better. I wonder how much poorer the buyers are going to be though,having to shell out for the privilege of owning one of these Ohlins clad beasts....???

Was in the Triumph dealer yesterday, the price is an extra £2k or 2.5. Can't remember but definitely another 2k on top. I hate the red frame too.
