  • Triumph Unveils The Speed Triple 1200 RR - The Most Beautiful Cafe Racer Ever?


    Triumph has recently expanded its popular Speed Triple range with the introduction of the 1200 RR - which was unveiled to journalist just 2 weeks ago. What Triumph brought to the fair was hands down on of the most impression launches in recent times - with a big part of that awe coming from just how jaw-dropping the 2022 Triumph Street Triple 1200 RR looked. Dare we say, this could be one of the most beautiful cafe racers to ever grace our eyes in recent times but without all the traditional niggles and problems of yesteryear motorcycles?

    Bringing a retro feel, the 1200 RR is based upon the Speed Triple 1200 RS which was released earlier in the year. The two share the same 178bhp 1160cc triple engine, but the RR takes a slightly more cafe racer-style approach to looks.

    The most noticeable change between the two motorcycles is the fitment of a single round headlamp, which replaces the twin headlamps on the RS. This is joined by clip-on handlebars, while the footpegs have been moved backwards. Combined, they give a more forward-leaning riding position.


    The RR incorporates Brembo brakes with 320mm discs, as well as lean-sensitive ABS. Adjustable Ohlins suspension is fitted as standard, too. They’re semi-active units, too, which means that they can be adjusted depending on the kind of riding you’re doing. Metzeler Racetec RR K3 tyres are fitted as well.

    All bikes get a full-colour five-inch TFT screen, while Triumph shift assist with up and down quickshifter comes as standard too.


    Here are 10 quick facts to get you antiquated with this latest offering from the British brand:

    1. The big news from a performance perspective is the new semi-active Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 suspension with OBTi (Objective Based Tuning Interface) software. Servo motors for the damping adjustment controlled by constant computer monitoring give the 2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR the pinnacle of street suspension technology. The suspension is adjustable on the fly, and Triumph describes it as “track-derived” with the “performance of a supersport bike.”


    2. The Speed Triple line has been known as a naked upright, but that doesn’t apply to the RR. The RR breaks with tradition, being a faired sportbike with clip-ons. It is a pure café racer.

    3. Even a cursory look tells you that the RR has its own ergonomics. The grips are down a stunning 5.3 inches compared to the naked, upright RS, and moved forward nearly two inches—a huge difference. Triumph also moved the footpegs up and back slightly. It’s a seating position built for speed rather than comfort.


    4. The fairing is upper-only, and is proudly led by a traditional round headlight. It’s not quite as retro and the MV Agusta Superveloce, being wider and more angular at the leading edge.

    5. Although the motor is unchanged, the RR gets higher-spec tires. Triumph is mounting up Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tires on the RR’s cast-aluminum wheels, with Supercorsa SC2 V3 rubber available as an option. That will help harness the 177 horses produced at 10,750 rpm by the DOHC triple, as well as the brutish 92 ft-lbs of torque at 9000 rpm.


    6. Carbon fiber is part of the RR’s upgraded package. The lightweight black stuff is used for various infills—tank, fairing, cockpit—plus the side panels and front fender.

    7. Triumph is using “ultra-premium high-quality” candy paint for the Speed Triple RR. The Red Hopper & Strom Gray is the flashy choice, with the Crystal White & Storm Grey appealing to the sophisticated buyer who will appreciate its gold detailing and pinstriping.

    8. There are a few other RR-specific upgrades worth mentioning. The handlebar clamp is branded Speed Triple. Additionally, the belly pan and seat cowling are color-matched. Don’t worry if you want to ride two-up—the RR included a pillion seat that you can install instead of the seat cowling.


    9. Triumph did a complete reboot of the Speed Triple this year. You will want to know about the Brembo braking system, highly customizable rider modes, the up/down quickshifter, and the full electronics suite (including the My Triumph connectivity system for your smartphone, developed in cooperation with Google and GoPro).


    10. The Speed Triple RR can be fitted with a variety of Triumph accessories. There’s everything from machined billet-aluminum goodies to an anti-theft system to luggage. Oh, and to keep the RR looking good, there are frame and fork protectors, plus a rubber tank pad.


    If your heart is fluttering as are ours, you’ll have to wait until January to take delivery on a 2022 Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR. Triumph Motorcycles are distributed in Singapore exclusively by Mah Pte Ltd. Do reach out to them to arrange for a test ride and let them know SingaporeBikes.com sent you - They'll take really good care of you. :)

      Triumph Motorcycles has recently revealed the all new new Triumph Tiger Sport 660 ADV tourer to the media globally via a virtual press conference (C*VID right?) - At first glance, the bike is quite a departure from the current Tiger’s design philosophy with a sharp and sporty-looking half-fairing that holds twin LED headlights. The fuel tank has grown larger to 17 litres — from the 14 litres in the Trident — and the bike gets a new digital display with a small colour TFT section. Overall, a marked improvement from models of previous years.

      The motorcycle is expected to arrive in Singapore sometime in 2022 and will be distributed exclusively through Triumph's agent in Singapore - Mah Pte Ltd. The Triumph brand in Singapore has long been held in great regard with the camaraderie amongst Triumph riders strong enough to keep bikers in the family - and the fact that Triumph motorcycles evoke a sense of emotion in you that you'd be hard press to find in other marques is just the icing on top of the cake. Fundamentally, Triumph bikes have always been quality and rider focus first, and that recipe has been working for them for many years.

      The side and tail angles are more familiar to the Trident, but the bigger fairing will give the Tiger Sport 660 a stronger sense of presence. There are three colour combinations available — Lucerne Blue and Sapphire Black, Korosi Red and Graphite and a minimalist Graphite and Black option.
      Features wise, the Tiger Sport 660 gets self-cancelling indicators, dual-channel ABS, switchable traction control and two riding modes — Road and Rain. Triumph says there are over 40 homologated accessories, including specially designed panniers and a large top box.

      The Tiger Sport 660 uses the steel main frame from the Trident, but the subframe is now different to accommodate the extra load that this bike is designed to carry. The swingarm is a little longer as well and the wheelbase has gone up by 11mm. Triumph says that the seat has been redone for better comfort. The bike has a seat height of 835mm.
      The Tiger Sport 660 gets 150mm of suspension travel at both ends, compared with 120mm and 133.5mm of front and rear travel on the Trident.

      The suspension components are made by Showa, with a non-adjustable 41mm USD fork and a pre-load adjustable shock with a remote preload adjuster. The rest of the chassis components, including the 17-inch wheels, Nissin brakes and Michelin Road 5 tyres are shared with the Trident.
      The 660cc three-cylinder is nearly identical to the Trident and produces the same 81hp and 64Nm. The internal gear ratios and final drive ratio are untouched, but Triumph says there are some small differences in the overall tuning for this application. As with the Trident, the six-speed gearbox can be optioned with an up/down quick-shifter.

      The Tiger Sport 660 wrapped in Triumph Camo prior to the release
      Here are 10 facts about the Tiger Sport 660 to get you up to speed on the 2022 model and expect a full review to follow when the motorcycle arrives in Singapore:
      The 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is street-focused. Like the Tiger Sport 850 before it, the Tiger Sport 660 has 17-inch street tires—that seals the deal as far as off-road capability goes. This is a pure street-going motorcycle with adventure styling, which includes a bit more suspension travel and taller seat height to enhance your view of the world as you tour or commute.

      The Tiger Sport 660 gets the same motor as the Trident, and in the same tune. That means an identical 80-horsepower peak delivered at 10,250 rpm, and maximum torque output of 47 ft-lbs at 6250 rpm.
        Touring bona fides come from integrated mounts for panniers. Although the side cases are an accessory, the Tiger Sport 660 comes from the factory with mountings integrated into the rear subframe. A 52-liter top box is also optional, and it will swallow up two full-face helmets.
        The 4.5-gallon fuel tank and estimated fuel consumption of 44 mpg work out to a range of just under 200 miles. That’s a decent number for a touring bike and for trips up North for when the border opens!

        Michelin Road 5 tires are all about long wear and high-performance in the wet. When you’re touring, you never know when the weather will come after you, so Triumph slipped a pair of tires on the Tiger Sport 660 that can handle inclement weather.
        Showa handles the longish-travel suspension. The Showa suspension on the 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is on the basic side. The fork is non-adjustable, though of the inverted persuasions with cartridge internals. The shock allows remote hydraulic adjustment of spring preload, plus rebound damping adjustment. Wheel travel at both ends is just under six inches—long for a street bike, modest for ADV.

      With the longer suspension travel comes a higher seat height. The Tiger Sport 660’s seat is 32.8 inches above the pavement—a bit higher than a Tiger Sport 850.
        The windscreen can be adjusted with one hand while riding.

        The electronics suite on the Tiger Sport 660 includes two power modes, switchable traction control, and a ride-by-wire throttle, plus a TFT display to monitor it all. There’s also a slip-and-assist clutch, though no quick-shifter. The My Triumph system, which coordinates your smartphone and the Tiger Sport 660, is optional but does not have support for Singapore / Malaysia mapping at the moment.
        Availability of the Tiger Sport 660 should be sometime in 2022 and we will advise on OTR pricing closer to the date. If you want to express interest and place your reservation - Check in with Mah Pte Ltd, details are at the start of this article.

      With a long and illustrious history in designing, developing, and manufacturing premium motorcycles with exceptional levels of performance, capability and handling, Triumph provided the James Bond stunt team with the perfect fit for the key action sequences in Bond’s latest outing, through the incredibly capable Tiger 900’s and Scrambler 1200’s.

      Lee Morrison, No Time To Die stunt coordinator: “The Tiger 900 is the most confidence-inspiring bike, it allows you to really push the ride as far as you want, you can take as many liberties as you want; stand up sideways drifting in third gear, slow wheelie it, slide it Supermoto-style.  I honestly think it’s one of the best bikes I’ve ever ridden, it’s fantastic.”
      Limited Edition
      Strictly limited to just 250 motorcycles, the new Tiger 900 Bond Edition celebrates the iconic British partnership between James Bond and Triumph.
      Each of these stunning motorcycles are individually numbered and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.

      Desirable, Distinctive and Sophisticated

      Each motorcycle also comes with a premium, billet machined handlebar clamp, with the bike’s unique limited edition number.
      Finally with the unique styling details, the Tiger 900 Bond Edition includes premium ‘blacked out’ detailing throughout. The frame, headlight finishers, side panels, sump guard, pillion footrest hangers, auxiliary lamp shrouds and engine guards all have a premium, black finish.

      Premium detailing and equipment
      Enhancing the Bond Edition theme, the new limited edition Tiger 900 features an exciting bespoke 007TM start up screen animation and heated rider and pillion seat, crafted with unique Bond Edition branding.

      Along with all of the Tiger 900 Rally Pro’s category-dominating specification the new limited edition also comes with an additional pair of high performance Michelin Anakee Wild handbook approved off-road tyres (in addition to the factory fitted Bridgestone Battlax tyres), and a premium Arrow Silencer, which features a lightweight brushed stainless steel body, with a carbon end cap and strap.

      If you've missed our first article on the launch of the Energica brand of EV superbikes here in Singapore, take a couple of minutes to read that article to give you a backstory of how local distributor Ifyni Pte Ltd - is taking the lead in electrifying the roads here in Singapore with the introduction of Energica's range.

      Energica Range of EV Motorcycles Now Available In Singapore Through Local Distributor Ifyni Pte Ltd
      Journalist from the media, industry partners, and influencers alike were super excited when we first got the call from Mr Eugene Mah, Operations Head at Ifyni Pte Ltd (and also Managing Director at Mah Pte Ltd) to test out the first of 3 models that will be coming to Singapore, the Energica EsseEsse 9+.

      Although EV vehicles such as Tesla are becoming more common sight on the roads, this has not necessarily transcended down onto the 2-wheeled variety due to the sheer cost of what one of this machines will cost, and not to mention, in most South-East Asian countries, the motorcycle is seen as an affordable means of transport and the market demand of a specialised one such as the EsseEsse 9+ would not be the first thought that comes to mind.

      This however, did not stop Ifyni from tackling the challenge head on as they believe that it was only a matter of time that EV becomes commonplace on our roads, and that having a first-mover advantage representing a world renown brand such as Energica would eventually bear fruits. It does take courage, a lot of commitment, a sizable investment, and of course lobbying the authorities to make this work and if anyone is able to do it, Eugene and the team at Ifyni are definitely one of the ones.
      First Sighting of the Energica EsseEsse 9+
      Although test rides are by invitation at the moment, we were lucky enough to find a slot whereby the EsseEsse 9+ was available to be loaned to us for a couple of days so that we could really put the bike through its paces and see what it was like to live with an electric motorcycle day to day.

      We collected the motorcycle on a Saturday afternoon, and fortunately traffic was low and the showroom was winding down at the end of the day as this gave us some time to fully take in and absorb what stood before us. At first impressions, the EsseEsse 9+ is exactly what you would expect of a bike from the future. Its design cues and styling are exaggerated, traditional dials are missing in place of a full LCD screen, and the build quality and level of parts used were impressive to say the least.

      Even stock, the EsseEsse 9+ comes with massive monoblock Brembo calipers upfront with dual floating calipers, Marzocchi USD forks at the front, and enough radiators to scream "high performance", albeit unlike in a normal motorcycle, these are to cool the battery packs and power plant, instead of the traditional gasoline engine.

      There are also enough decals around the bike showing "High Voltage", "Danger" and the likes to hint that this is in actual fact, a fully electric superbike that is made for the roads. As the skies started to turn dark as we were waiting to depart from the collection, the guys at Ifyni jokingly assured us that it would be completely fine to ride in the rain, and that we would not be electrocuted.

      Overall, the build quality for a machine with a starting price of S$69,000 - is fitted with branded, quality parts befitting of its price. What intrigues us more however, would be how it would feel like to ride, as we were warned of its weight in advance while trying to move the bike. 
      How Does It Ride?
      As with most electric cars or motorcycles, this is a heavy beast, without a doubt. Weighing in at 258kg, this would be right up there with the heavier Class 2 motorcycles around but take our word for it. Once you get the beast moving, this bike feels just about as nimble as you would expect an Italian, naked, superbike to feel. At stationary, it comes with a reverse gear to aid you in maneuvering and moving the bike around so don't let that 258kg figure put you off.

      2 things stood out most to us during the test ride and over the couple of days that we've had with the motorcycle.
      Firstly, it was the sound from the motor. Any die-hard motorcyclist and petrol head will tell you that without a big thumping engine, you cannot be considered a real motorhead! However, what we found when we spent a couple of days with the EsseEsse 9+ is that there was a certain beautiful tone that comes from the oil-cooled AC motor when you are winding it up the highways! Similarly to its gasoline cousins, it DOES get louder and more intense that you twist that throttle and pick up speed!

      In the earlier years of EV technology, most AC motors sounded rough and even bordering on being quite irritating, but the unit in the Energica actually sounded rather pleasant, almost as if there was a "tuned exhaust" being put on the electric motor.

      The other thing that stood out to us was the sheer comfort and predictable handling characteristic of the motorcycle. I would love to personally fly down to Italy and find out from the Energica engineers how they have managed to pull of this feat. Looking at the suspension setup and geometry, at a start it does seem very unique with Marzocchi forks up front, and an off-set Biturbo single shock at the rear.

      The EsseEsse 9+ was extremely compliant on the highways, going over bumps and making the ride buttery smooth, but at the same time, when attacking corners hard - the bike turned in well and grip was never lacking unless you are taking the corner at stupid speeds!

      Another pointer (yes i know we said 2, not 3) that we'll also touch on later is that in actual fact on our tiny island, we honestly never got range anxiety throughout the 3 days that we had the bike.
      Technology & Features Of The Energica EsseEsse 9+
      The Energica EsseEsse 9+, unsurprisingly comes loaded with all the latest test features and gizmos that you could ever want. From having a full LED lightning all around the bike, to a fully digital dash, and more riding, traction, and "engine braking" modes that you can throw your book at.

      More specifically, there bikes comes with:
      7 levels of Traction Control (including OFF) 4 Riding Modes (ECO, URBAN, RAIN, SPORT) 4 levels of "Engine Braking" (including OFF)
      We found the digital dash easy to read although in direct sunlight there was a considerable amount of glare but that can easily be taken care of by a matt screen protector. The amount of information provided is just right and doesn't clutter the dash too much although the menu options can be a bit finicky to go through and would be best done at a stand-still.

      In an ideal world, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration would be appreciated for a motorcycle at this price point but at this stage we are just nitpicking!
      Fret not however if all these tech and jargons are confusing you. Using this premium, next generation motorcycle however, is as simple as riding a Yamaha Aerox - just Twist and Go! It betters the Aerox by having a reverse gear as well and this is just yet another positive of an AC motor, in which even automatic motorcycles can have a reverse gear just by changing the direction of current flow through the motor.

      What If I Run Out Of Petrol? Where To Charge?!
      When reviewing or talking about an electric vehicle, the inevitable question always happens: What do you do when you run out of juice?
      Depending if you're riding within your neighbourhood or going for a hoon on the expressways, the EsseEsse 9+ will return a range of anywhere from 200km right up to 420km according to the manufacturer. In the few days that we had the bike, we estimate a real-world usage range of about 300km which is right about average. This is comparable to many other Class 2 motorcycles out there and with over 200nm of torque and a 0-100km/h time of 2.8 seconds, we reckon that range is pretty commendable.

      Another positive point (no pun intended) on the batteries is that it has rapid charging technology built in and if you are at a high-ampere charging point, Energica reckons you can go from 0% to 85% state of charge in as short as 30 mins!

      As we write this article, the government and private entities here in Singapore are continuously working towards new charging points all around the island. Currently, there are approximately 400+ charging points in Singapore where you can charge the Energica motorcycle and most if not all imported EV-type vehicles currently are using a standard charging plug that would enable you to charge your EV motorcycle almost anywhere.

      SP Group and Blue SG are leading the pack with the number of outlets islandwide and SingSaver did an excellent article on where you can find the various charging points. From an empty battery pack, it would cost about S$4-5 to fully charge up your motorcycle so this would be much cheaper than a comparable Class 2 petrol motorcycle.

      Final Verdict
      So what do we think of the Energica EsseEsse 9+? Being the first product of a full-production electric superbike, this is a very worthy entrant here into Singapore. The price might seem high but when you compare the specifications, and the amount of bike you are getting, it actually isn't that much more expensive than the likes of Ducati, BMW, KTM, and the other more established brands.
      What you will be getting however, is becoming a forerunner is what the future will be, the only difference being, you can have it right now.
      Test rides are still by invitation only, but if you are a keen buyer, be sure to hit up the guys over at Ifyni Pte Ltd to see if they might be able to slot you in!
      We are certainly looking forward to the arrival of the Energica EGO to reach our shores as that is the all out superbike from Energica that is almost identical to the race bikes used by Moto-E. We promise we won't drop this one if we can get a review in, Eugene.
