This is the Triumph Speed Triple R. It’s the same as the Triumph Speed Triple, except it’s got an Ohlins shock (model unspecified), Ohlins forks (model unspecified), Brembo Monoblock calipers, PVM forged aluminum wheels and, excitingly, “carbon fiber parts as standard.” That’s a good thing. The regular Speed Triple is already amazing, so nicer suspension and better brakes should make it even more amazing. Plus, there’s a red subframe just like the Triumph Daytona 675R, and red subframes are the new speedholes in terms of pointless, but utterly awesome aesthetic frippery. In case it’s not clear, we want to lick every single inch of this motorcycle before making dirty, dirty love to it.

Update: Triumph reached out this morning to say, like the 675R, the Speed Triple R is equipped with with top-shelf Ohlins NIX30 forks and a TTX36 shock. That's over $4,000 in suspension and brake calipers. Thanks guys.
