Triumph Motorcycles has officially released details of the 2016 Speed Triple. There are actually two models: the Speed Triple S, and the Speed Triple R. We're advised that there are 104 engine changes, but the capacity remains the same at 1050cc.


Features include a new cylinder head, revised combustion chambers, a reworked crank, new pistons, and a smaller (but supposedly more efficient) radiator. The bodywork has been re-thought, and those cheeky signature headlamps have been warmed over for the new season.


As if that isn't enough, a slipper clutch has been fitted, and the exhaust has a 70% increased flow which is bound to give the salesmen something technical to yap about.


We haven't heard confirmation of the electrics, but it's generally expected that the 2016 Speed Triples will have more on-board devices than Inspector Gadget. Fuel efficiency is claimed to be 10% better. We've liked the Speed Triple from the start, and we love this one. So far. Prices are yet to be announced.
