The new 2011 Triumph Speed Triple motorcycle has an all-new chassis, with a sharper handling and even more aggressive look.

The sculpted frame retains the traditional Speed Triple styling cues, such as the twin over-engine spars and single-sided swingarm, but the geometry is all-new.

Triumph has reduced weight by 6.6 lbs and changed the distribution by moving the engine forward in the frame and relocating the battery in front of the airbox.

The front and rear wheels are each over 2.2 lbs lighter, while the narrower frame and improved packaging allows for increased ground clearance and making for lighter feeling motorcycle.

The new 43mm forks are fully-adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping on both legs, while Brembo radial caliper brakes grip 320mm discs which are 0.5mm thinner than the outgoing Speed Triple for further reduction in unsprung weight.

All-new body panels and heavily sculpted seat accentuate the Speed Triple and the nake bike’s aggressive street fighting stance that is complement by a newly-styled twin headlights.

The Triumph 1050cc engine is just about the only thing that carries over from the previous motorcycle model, although torque has been increased by 8% and power increasing to 128 hp utilizing Triumph’s latest generation ECU software and modified exhaust system.

Color-coded radiator cowls are a new feature and sport new decals. Three color options are available: Crystal White, Phantom Black and Diablo Red, with color-coded flyscreen, seat cowl and belly pan available as genuine Triumph motorcycle accessories.
