The 2011 Triumph Speed Triple will either captivate or repel you, depending on whether you were a fan of the round headlights or not. In any case, Triumph has decided to widen its horizons and capture the broader market with a more modern look - something which was difficult to achieve with the round-eyed headlights strictly for fans only.
Thanks to Hell for Leather, which has been closely following the Triumph story for 2011, here are more pics of the 2011 Speed Triple. It might have swapped its headlights for something more modern, but the new Triumph is looking very mean and frankly, quite exciting in the streetbike segment.
Will it still be too heavy? We’ll wait for the test ride verdict but it will be interesting to see if this model makes an impact on the market next year and if Triumph will modernise slightly by way of it.
