  • Triumph has launched the Speed Triple 1200 RS in India at INR 16.95 lac

    Triumph has unveiled the new Speed Triple 1200 RS. According to the Hinckley marquee, the motorcycle has been redesigned from the ground up and marks Triumph's entry in the hotly contested hyper-naked category.

    Press Release:

    With an all-new higher capacity 1160cc triple engine developed with insight from our Moto2 race engine programme, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS delivers 180PS peak power at 10,750 rpm and 125NM peak torque at 9,000 rpm.

    The new engine is significantly lighter, by 7kg. It’s more compact compared to the previous Speed Triple powertrain, despite the bigger capacity, giving the new model the perfect balance of aggression, performance and control.

    Thanks to the all-new free-breathing intake and exhaust system, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS is also the best sounding Speed Triple ever produced, with a visceral intake roar and characteristic triple exhaust howl.

    There is a new lighter weight slip and assist clutch which uses state-of-the-art friction compound to reduce the number of clutch plates, minimising mass and improving clutch feel, while maximising control during high speed downshifting.

    10kg lighter and with an all-new lightweight chassis, all-new rider ergonomics and a more dominant and purposeful riding position, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS is nothing less than a handling revolution. Premium track specification equipment includes new Brembo Stylema brakes, Metzeler RACETEC™ RR tyres and performance-tuned Öhlins suspension.

    On the front, the Speed Triple 1200 RS has Öhlins NIX30 upside-down forks, adjustable for pre-load, rebound and compression damping, while on the rear the rider can benefit from the Öhlins TTX36 twin tube monoshock, also adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping.

    On the front, the new high-performance twin Brembo Stylema radial monobloc front callipers, with lighter 320mm front discs, ensure track-ready braking power, and on the rear, a single Brembo twin-piston rear calliper enables the rider to balance the braking effort and enhances the overall control of the bike both on the road and on track.

    The standard tyres fitted to the new Speed Triple 1200 RS are the high-performance Metzeler Racetec RR, which are Metzeler’s highest specification tyres approved for road use, and are capable of delivering optimum performance both on the road and on track. Additionally, the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC2 tyre can be fitted to the new Speed Triple 1200 RS as a factory approved track option.

    The new 1200 RS comes equipped with a step-change in Speed Triple technology, including all-new 5” TFT instruments, new Triumph Shift Assist up-and-down quickshifter, Optimised Cornering ABS, switchable Optimised Cornering Traction Control (with IMU), 5 riding modes – including Track mode, new distinctive full LED lighting, full keyless system and the My Triumph Connectivity System fitted as standard.

    The overall cost of ownership is reduced thanks to the high 10,000 miles service interval, and the 2 years unlimited mileage warranty. Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS has been launched in India at INR 16.95 lac (Ex-Showroom, Pan-India) with the booking amount being INR 1 lac. The deliveries begin March-end onwards against confirmed pre-bookings.
