It's easy to spot the gaudy red paint and white stripe that set this Speed Triple apart from the usual all-white or all-black versions, but it's what you can't see that makes the 2010 Triumph Speed Triple SE at least passingly significant. Upgraded internals bring greater damping capabilities while the rear shock gains a five percent softer rear spring. All that's supposed to add up to better ride comfort, reduced fork dive and greater suspension control. All that will make it's way to the regular Speed Triple next year too.
Triumph's also announcing a partnership with Ohlins which will see the
Swedish suspension components made available from Triumph dealers. Look
for parts that will fit all bikes in the Triumph range. This gaudy show
bike is meant to promote this partnership.
