The 2006 Speed Triple 1050 offers every potential riding experience sport riders will want to enjoy. It flies in wide-open stretches, climbs hills like it""s laughing at the challenge, and handles like the bike is on steel rails. For those who like to get their knees dirty when cornering, the Triumph Speed Triple 1050 offers enough capability and action to keep protective gear manufacturers in business. From a standstill, the Triumph Speed will be intimidating to many riders, even those with experience. When rolling hard on the throttle, the first goal will be to keep the front end down – after that, the only thing left to do is work through the six gears as rapidly as possible. The top speed is limited to an exhilarating 141mph on this machine – a speed that is wisely utilized on the track, rather than on the streets.
