Purpose designed from the ground up to deliver the pinnacle of riding experiences on the road, yet still incredibly capable on the track. The Speed Triple is the ultimate combination of performance, handling, rider-focused technology, track specification equipment and aggressive new style.

Higher revving, with an even better triple sound, it’s effortless to ride, exhilarating, and the most responsive and fastest accelerating Speed Triple ever.


Designed to bring a visceral high with every moment, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS is the lightest and best handling Speed Triple, bar none. It’s 22 lbs lighter than the previous generation at just 436.5 lbs ready to ride, with an all-new lightweight chassis, all-new rider ergonomics and a more dominant and purposeful riding position. The result is a bike that is tighter, more toned, and mass centralized, for a more agile, precise, and dynamic ride.

Premium track equipment includes new Brembo Stylema® brakes, Metzeler RACETEC™ RR tires and performance tuned Öhlins suspension, all tuned for the ultimate naked performance sports ride. The new Speed Triple 1200 RS is nothing less than a handling revolution.


Advanced ride-by-wire throttle technology equips the Speed Triple 1200 RS with 3 distinctly different throttle maps and 4 optimized traction control maps to bring you the response you need, no matter the conditions.

The 5 customizable riding modes, Rain, Road, Sport, Track and Rider Configurable, are changed via a dedicated button on the handlebars, and adjust the bike’s character with dedicated throttle response, ABS and traction control settings.

Optimized Cornering ABS and switchable Optimized Cornering Traction Control ensure optimum progress and control in all conditions by continuously monitoring the lean angle of the bike, while the enhanced new Track mode is designed to make electronic interventions virtually imperceptible during fast track riding, leaving you to focus on the next apex.


Packed with technology for the ultimate connected ride, the new Speed Triple 1200 RS has all-new 5” TFT instruments for easy to read information at a glance.
