Interview | Deep dive into Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR


THE Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR is a modern take on the café racer, with real-world sports bike dynamics optimised for road use, with more than enough ability to hustle on a race track.

While the bike is not a ground-up redesign (its underpinnings are roughly the same as the latest generation Speed Triple 1200 RS) although there is much more at work here than simply slapping a bikini fairing on the much-loved naked.

Stuart Wood Interview | How the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR was created

For starters, the riding position of the bike is completely bespoke, with a more focused and sporty rider triangle aimed at improving the road and track ability of the machine. The lower, narrower bars give the bike a nose-down attitude, while the new rearsets are higher, further back, and wider than before. The handlebar position is aimed at weighting the front more and allowing the rider to get into an optimum sports riding position. Thanks to the wider footpeg location, the rider can now weight the pegs more effectively, boosting on track cornering performance.
