Triumph Motorcycles, the famous British motorcycle manufacturer, instilled with the history of creating marvelous pieces of mechanical beings that have not only made a mark in motorcycling itself but also in the pages of motorcycle racing, as well. Coming to India, Triumph Motorcycles started its operations in the country only recently (2013), however, the company has been doing well in terms of sales and its customers seem never short of being utterly delighted. Triumph, with its range of motorcycles on offer, provides its customers and prospective buyers with bikes that suits perfectly; add to this a delectable range of customization options, and things get even more attractive. Triumph is now rumored to have brought in the mighty Speed Triple 1050R, which is currently undergoing homologation tests.
At the moment, Triumph Motorcycles India sells the Speed Triple – a modest 675cc engine that churns out 79 PS of Power and 57 Nm of Torque. The 1050R, though, is powered by a 1050cc, 3-cylinder engine, producing 135 PS of power and 111 Nm of Torque. It clearly is, quite deservedly, the existing Speed Triple's brother that never really found mention, until now. Take away the R from the Speed Triple, and what you get is a clambered down version – 126.7 PS of power and 104.8 Nm of Torque. Leaving the engine aside, all other elements of the bike seem to look the same as its younger sibling, the Speed Triple.
If Triumph does launch the Speed Triple 1050 in India, the other players such as Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki, might surely face the heat in the litre-class segment. Equipped with the upside-down forks, large disc rotors at front and Ohlins suspension to further stabilize the beast, the Speed Triple 1050, then, would be a machine that might just set the roads on fire. Make sure you get a good job or be fortunate enough to be born into a wealthy family because the Speed Triple 1050, since it's being flown in from another country, the price tag would probably not the best looking in terms of affordability. Expect the bike to be priced at Rs 13 – 15 lakhs.
The iconic British motorcycle brand will soon bring in the Speed Triple 1050 to India
