Aussie pricing for Triumph’s naked weapon

Triumph Australia has confirmed the pricing and arrival for their latest evolution in their Speed Triple naked street weapon series.

The Speed Triple 1200 RR will be available in Triumph dealers in Australia from December at $32,490 rideaway for the Crystal White/Storm Grey and and extra $400 for the Red Hopper/Storm Grey.

Triumph’s 1994 Speed Triple was one of the first of what we now call streefighter or naked bikes.

It is said they had their genesis in crashed race bikes which were repaired and returned to the street without their expensive fairings.

That’s why they are referred to as “naked”.

But to many they represent simply a return to the essence of motorcycles before fairings came along in the late ’70s.

Triumph’s Speed triples began as 750cc and 885 models and have become bigger and more powerful with each generation.

As if that wasn’t enough, they started adding special models such as the RS and RR designations with improved suspension, more equipment and, of course, more power.

The latest 1160cc Speed Triple 1200 RS costs $27,700, so you can expect a lot of extras for the $4700+ premium.

And that’s exactly what you get from extra carbon fibre to a range of hi-tech rider aids.

Here is a summary of the extras:

Other features in common with the RS include:

There are also more than 30 genuine Triumph accessories for additional detailing, comfort and protection.

Accessories include machined front and rear brake reservoirs, scrolling indicators, heated grips and even luggage, with a water-resistant tail pack and tank bag, both with quick release mounting – all of which are available to view on the online configurator.

You can also get track-only specification Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC2 V3 tyres.

Like the RS, it has generous service intervals of 16,000km or 12 months, whichever comes first and comes with a two-year unlimited kilometre warranty.
