Triumph Motorcycles is set to introduce the new 2018 Speed Triple globally. The British automaker has recently released a teaser video of the motorcycle and has used terms like powerful and agile in the footage. This well suggests that the new 2018 Triumph Speed Triple will be more power packed and will most likely come with a better handling than the outgoing model. In the teaser video, it looks that the new 2018 Triumph Speed Triple will come with an LED headlamp up front that should deliver a decent illumination at nights. Also, there will be changes to the design and the new model is expected to be a bit sharper than before. The new 2018 Speed Triple will get the same coloured TFT instrument cluster that was seen for the first time in the Street Triple RS. The new Speed Triple will also get new wheels with a new design. The motorcycle will also see some revisions in its electronics package for the good and hence, it will see the latest bells and whistles for which the company has always been known for.

There is a possibility that Triumph Motorcycles will launch the new 2018 Speed Triple in more than a single variant. The new 2018 Triumph Speed Triple will get its power from a 1050cc, inline three-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. The fuel injected mill is good for churning out a maximum power output of 133 hp and the figure will most likely see a rise in the new model.

As far as India launch is concerned, the new 2018 Triumph Speed Triple will be launched here by the end of this year. Expect the new Speed Triple to demand some more cash over the existing model that currently retails in India at a price of Rs 11.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). More details to be revealed on 29th January.
