Triumph Speed Triple, a balanced and versatile naked. Conclusions and photo gallery

During these days we have been gradually reeling off what the English model can offer us Triumph Speed Triple and, honestly, I have been very satisfied. To curl the curl we were forced to know how it was going in the back seat so I got into one of my two official fitting rooms and we went for a ride.

The seat is not very big although enough to sit more or less comfortably. The height of the stirrups is not excessive so we are not forced to bend our knees too much. Thanks to this we can make strength with our legs since the Triumph Speed Triple It does not have handles for the passenger. Our only possibility is to rely on the deposit.

Although the stirrups do not have any rubber protection, we will hardly feel vibrations unless we take the engine very low of turns. Finally, the leaks are very well insulated thermally, since neither the passenger nor the gap under the seat gets too hot despite having both silencers very close to the legs.

Finally, point out the consumption enough content of the Triumph Speed Triple. During the test, consumption was around six liters from medium to normal pace, pulling to light (part of the test was carried out on wet asphalt). With this we achieve a theoretical autonomy of a little less than 300 kilometers thanks to the 18 liters of capacity that the tank has. We have been able to verify a route of almost 250 kilometers until the reserve jumped.

Finally, I did not want to put aside the anecdote of the prick that I suffered at the end of the test. Thank goodness that in Motormanía they treat me like home. I'm still laughing at the words of Jose Viedma (Pepe) when I told him. "You've already broken it," he snapped between laughter. However, this small setback has not tarnished the good taste in my mouth that the Triumph Speed Triple.
