Big bang! Triumph has a prototype ready straddling a new Daytona and a modern Thruxton

It's August, half the people are on vacation and everything seems to be very stopped, but Triumph She seems willing to spice up the summer a bit.

After having launched a serious notice to the rest of the brands confirming their entry into Motocross and Enduro competitions with their own bikes, now they have just released a new teaser that looks very, very good: the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR Design Prototype.

Triumph seems to be looking forward to playing again in the R segment

It's been a long, long time we've been waiting for the Triumph's return to the backyard of sports bikes. The rest of the competition brands (except KTM and little else) have models that are dying to see a Hinckley R come out to play with them.

The closest we have had lately has been the limited edition Daytona Moto2 765 LE, which would be a Daytona 675 with the 765 engine used by the Street Triple and from which the engine used in the intermediate category of MotoGP is derived.


Now, Triumph has released us a mysterious teaser through their social networks. We can't see too much, but we can see enough to get an idea of what a approach to the sportier side Of the brand.

Initially the Speed Triple 1200 RR Design Prototype It is conceived as its name indicates as a prototype, but it looks more like a probe balloon of what the brand has already ready to debut in 2022.

Apparently it would be a sportier version of the Speed Triple 1200 RS that we have been able to test this year, and that represents the greatest qualitative and quantitative leap ever made by the Speed Triple family.

This generation has a completely renewed three-cylinder, capable of exceeding the Euro5 and, incidentally, reaching the 180 hp to be the most powerful series Triumph in the history of the brand.

On this basis, it appears that Triumph has decided to apply a Upper half-fairing that surrounds the headlight that becomes a lens, with an extremely low dome and also with changes in ergonomics. Everything indicates that the high handlebar is replaced by a pair of semi-handlebars.

These changes could be accompanied by other adjustments in the cycle part, ergonomics and mechanics, although this last point is unlikely.

At the moment we have to wait to find out what exactly Triumph has in store, but above all it has given us very long teeth with this kind of modern Thruxton. We already know that Triumph seldom presents something that does not make it to production.
