Hey, what’s going on guys? I know, it’s 2012 already, and we’re still playing catch up with bikes from last year. But anyways, the good folks over at Ace Motorsports were cool enough to lend us a 2011 Triumph Speed Triple for the day.
According to Paul, it’s the chassis improvements on the Speed Triple that are most noticeable. He felt that he was sitting much closer to the front of the bike than on the old bike, placing more weight over the front end. More front-end weight is added by the re-positioned engine and the battery being mounted behind the forks.
What I was trying to say in the video, was that the new bike may have the same old 1050cc engine, but more power (and importantly more torque) had been squeezed out of it thanks to the bigger crankcase vents, revised ECU settings, a much bigger airbox and a freer flowing exhaust system.
Stay tuned for more updates, and be sure to order your copy of our new Winter/ Spring 2012 print edition of Inline Performance Magazine HERE. Don’t worry, shipping is free!
