'We wanted to create the ultimate Speed Triple'

Triumph’s imminent new ‘R’ version of its best-selling super naked is much more than a cosmetic update, MCN can now reveal – in fact it’s been conceived to be “the ultimate Speed Triple”! So, where previous ‘R’ Triumphs, like the Street Triple and 675 Daytona, benefit mostly from uprated suspension and brakes, the new Speed Triple R goes significantly further by...

Nice, but...

I'm really feckin' tired of painting the odd bit of metal red to differntiate something as special.  That subframe standing out is severely out of place and makes the bike look stupid.  First thing I would do is paint it black. 

And I agree with speedo that the flyscreen should be standard on the R...seat cowl too IMO.  Performance wise, they added lighter forged wheels, Ohlins and monoblocs but why no Arrow cans?

But that red subframe...stop it already.  The others OEMs as well.  I've had enough of the red accent piece.

Yep, go and buy an MV, if you're anywhere near a dealer, then add the same spec Ohlins Forks/Shock, and light weight wheels. You'll be looking at well over 12K for that. The Brutale 1090RR is £14k basic and it still doesn't have the Ohlins suspension. Triumph haven't released the price of the speed Triple R yet and believing what MCN says is a bit hit and miss. They first reported that this bike was going to be £10k something, then quickly changed it to £11k now they are saying close to £12k.
