A new profile has been added to the list of Triumph motorcycle models on this site: The Speed Triple (1050) (2005-2015). Following on from the success of the 955cc Speed Triple, a new model with a larger engine debuted in 2005 to carry on the street fighter heritage.
In the 10 years in which the model existed, it developed into a serious hoonigan's machine.
Initially it had round headlights but in 2011 these were changed to a more elongated shape which divided opinion. It also received ABS in 2011, and later it got Brembo callipers.
It eventually morphed into the Speed Triple S model in 2016.
