2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR price and specs

The Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR is a higher-specification version of the recently released 1200 RS that is distinguished by a retro-style bikini fairing, and uprated tyres and suspension, among other changes.

Pricing for the Speed Triple 1200 RR has been set at $32,490 rideaway in base Crystal White guise, while a Red Hopper paint scheme comes at a $400 premium, with a $32,890 pricetag.

For reference, the current 1200 RS variant is available from $28,490, making the up-market 1200 RR $4000 more expensive than the bike upon which it is based.

The new 1200 RR variant swaps out the angry-eyed headlight signature of the RS for a single round lamp, housed in a new cockpit fairing that is complimented by sporty clip-on handlebars and tweaked footpeg positioning.

This new ergonomic setup sees the handlebars 50mm further forward and 135mm lower than its fully naked stablemate, while overall weight is increased from 198- to 199-kilograms (wet).

Triumph also distinguishes the RR with carbon-fibre detailing and new twin-colour candy paint schemes, Red Hopper and Storm Grey. The carbon-fibre treatment extends to the tank, side panels and front mudguard.

On the performance front, the Speed Triple RR gains semi-active Ohlins suspension as well as track-focussed Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tyres.

The new bike carries over Triumph’s most-advanced production electronics suite, that can be managed on a 5.0-inch TFT display with smartphone connectivity.

Five rider modes tailor various engine mapping, ABS and traction control parameters, while notable tech features include an up/down quickshifter, keyless ignition, illuminated switchgear and cruise control as standard.

As debuted on the Speed Triple 1200 RS, the new RR uses the same 132kW/125Nm 1160cc triple-cylinder engine, and features large Brembo Stylema brakes with twin 320mm floating discs up front, and a 220mm single disc at the rear.
