Triumph Motorcycles has officially unveiled the 2022 Speed Triple 1200 RR after a series of teasers.
As confirmed by previous reports, the new Speed Triple RR is based around its naked cousin (the Speed Triple RS) but with additional electronic suspension and semi-front fairing.
While it may feature the same frame, subframe and fuel tank, the Speed Triple RR is an altogether new motorcycle.
The most notable change is the introduction of the semi-active Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 electronic suspension, replacing the NIX30 inverted fork and TTX36 twin-tube monoshock on the RS.
Other significant revisions include more aggressive ergonomics thanks to 5 inches lower and 2 inches forward clip-on handlebars and raised footpegs.
Moreover, the use of a single circular LED headlamp paired to a retro-ish front panel, and Red Hopper/Storm Grey colour scheme creates a striking image.
Nonetheless, underneath the elegant looking sports bike sits the same liquid-cooled, DOHC, 1,160cc triple-cylinder engine with 177hp and 125Nm that powers the Speed Triple RS, including a 6-speed gearbox with slip and assist function.
Other exciting features include:
- Brembo MCS lever
- Brembo Sytlema calliper
- 320mm front disc and 220mm single rear disc
- Five riding modes
- advanced wheelie control
- cornering ABS
- traction control
- bi-directional quickshifter
- cruise control
- 5″ TFT instrument cluster with My Triumph connectivity
The 2022 Speed Triple 1200 RR will be available as early as January 2022.
