Triumph S3xier than ever

2010-10-15 07:54

REVEALED: The new design of the Triumph S3.

Gone are the round bug-eyes of Triumph’s S3, now replaced by, err, angular bug-eyes instead. These are the first images of the naked Hinckley three cylinder, and if first appearances are anything to go by, it's a very attractive beast indeed.

In addition to the new headlights Triumph has also shaved just over 2kg off the Triple’s weight – largely thanks to a new aluminium chassis – and bolstered power output from its 1 050cc mill by 2kW (now 99kW), available at 9400rpm. Torque is up by 6Nm (now 111Nm) which is available at 7750rpm.

According to Triumph the new bike also feels much more nimble, and its handling is now more inline with that of its smaller Street Triple sibling. Triumph has also made optional ABS available, and treated the S3 to tyre pressure monitors for the first time.

What are your thoughts on Triumph’s new styling direction with the Speed Triple? Do you prefer the old circular bug-eye headlights or would you rather go for the new angular styled ones?
