The Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS is priced at £15,100 in the UK (on-road price) which converts to Rs 15.11 lakh and the Indian ex-showroom price could be somewhere close to this figure. In the global markets, the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 Rs takes on the likes of Yamaha MT-10 SP, BMW S 1000 R, Kawasaki Z H2 and KTM 1290 Super Duke R.
The 2021 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS is powered by a 1160cc engine making it the fastest Speed Triple ever. The engine which was developed by the automaker’s Moto2 team manages to deliver 180 PS of maximum power and a peak torque of 125 Nm. The new engine revs harder and maintains an extraordinary torque in the low and mid-range, which is a key character of a Speed Triple. The motorcycle also gets a free-breathing intake and exhaust which offer an all-new crisp sound.
The Speed Triple 1200 RS also earns its reputation of being the most agile Speed Triple yet offering top notch handling and precision. The Speed Triple 1200 RS is 10 kg lighter than the predecessors and tips at 198 kg (wet). The centralized chassis results in a narrower structure offering a more dominant and purposeful riding position.
The Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS takes the riding experience to another level with track specification equipment like the Ohlins suspension, Metzeler Racetec RR tyres and Brembo Stylema brakes.
The Speed Triple 1200 RS also moves paces ahead in the technology front with features like optimized cornering ABS, switchable optimized cornering traction control, 5-inch TFT instrument cluster, 5 riding modes including an enhanced Track mode, Triumph Shift Assist quickshifter, full-LED lighting, keyless system and the My Triumph Connectivity System.
The Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS also comes with a reduced overall cost of ownership with a 16,000 km service interval and 2 years unlimited mileage warranty.
The deliveries of the motorcycle will begin from the end of February.
