- Features a major styling makeover
- Likely to get a bigger engine
- May debut by end-2020
The next-generation Triumph Speed Triple has revealed itself through new spy photographs. The new model will pack styling upgrades that will be similar to the ones that we saw on the latest iteration of the Street Triple series.
The revised front fascia will retain the twin-pod headlight design, although the units on the upcoming model will feature an aggressive look. They will also feature the new, eyebrow-style LED DRLs. Another noticeable upgrade is the new exhaust position. Unlike its predecessor that featured a twin-pod, underseat setup for the exhaust, the new model will use a compact, underbelly unit. Other features will include upright ergonomics, muscular fuel tank, bar-end mirrors and a single-sided swingarm.
Apart from the cosmetic upgrades, Triumph Motorcycles will also update the motor to comply with the newest emission norms. The company may revise the displacement, and the Euro5 version may arrive with a slightly bigger engine than the old model. Reports indicate that the upcoming model will boast of a displacement of 1,160cc. The motorcycle will continue to use an inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor.
The test mule, which is equipped with Ohlins suspension and Brembo braking setup, appears to be the flagship variant of the upcoming Speed Triple series, the Speed Triple RS.
