That half-fairing on the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR? Sexy!

Triumph Motorcycles is ready to introduce its first model for the 2022 line-up, and what a way to start with the 2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR. Scheduled for launch on 14 September 2021, the Speed Triple 1200 RR was teased yet again in another short video where we got a clearer picture of what the bike will look like.

For those who love retro-inspired cafe racers, the Speed Triple 1200 RR is exactly that and we can clearly see that from its front half-fairing. The current Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS carries a more modern and aggressive facade with a hint of retro-ness, the RR comes in heavy with that old-school appeal.

Despite its 'RR' badge, the Speed Triple 1200 RR is said to be Triumph's "most sophisticated, stunning and focused Speed Triple ever – beautifully designed, fully engaged, totally committed and loaded with performance." Judging by the short teaser video, we feel that they might be right.

In terms of firepower, we can expect the RR to carry the same 1,160cc inline-three DOHC engine as the RS which produces around 177hp and 125Nm of torque. Looking closer at the video, we can see that the RR comes with a circular headlight that was designed together with that front half-fairing, unlike the aggressive unit found on the naked RS.

We still have a week left before its official launch, and we're pretty sure that there will be one last teaser before it's officially introduced. Stay tuned for more updates.
