No (new model just announced - order in!), but the rumour is they're killing off the Daytona. Just not selling well enough like the CBR as the justification. I'm also wondering if the Speed Triple is now looking long in the tooth, what with the upgrades to the Streetie.

Can't wait to see the new Triumph motor in Moto 2

Yeah, if you pay attention to 'middleweights', they've been going up in displacement in order to provide similar power levels under Euro4.

Ducati went up from 696 to 795, then 821 with the Monster. The Baby Panigale went from 899 to 959.

Kawi's naked bike went with an 800 triple then upped to a 900 triple.

The Triumph just moved from 675 to 765 (which won't confuse anyone with typos).

It may be the supersport is tapering off as a road bike, and people on track are going to be looking at literbikes for track purposes. We may continue to get more and more offerings in middleweight in street tripm(naked, upright, 'standard').

I'd love to see a Kawi 750 or Supercharged 600 (as rumoured).

Yeah, the Speed Triple is doing like 139hp, while the Street Triple RS is doing like 123? It doesn't seem to make sense to keep two models so close together, especially with the much nicer subframe/seat on the Street Triple.
Sanctuary and lance22me like this.

How much of a weight difference between the Street, and the Speed?

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

There's about 5kg in it. Ironically though the only way they saved weight on the Speed Triple was to drop the fuel tank size to 15.5 litres.

Sounds pretty good from this review: New Street Triple RS: More than just a fancy motor | MCN

That's a pretty minor difference.... given the increase in HP on the bigger motor. Almost seems like the bigger engine is de-tuned a bit. (obviously it's going to have a wider spread of power)

Sorry, I was wrong. The Streetie is 187kg wet, the Speedie 192kg dry. So it would be around 208kg wet so the difference is significant - 21kg.

Edit: Check out this quote from one of the active testers...

Quote:
“we’re not really pushing it, but you can tell straight away that there’s more top end on this bike. In fact, it makes be wonder why you’d want the big Speed Triple at all.”
