Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The venerable Speed Triple gets revamped for 2016 with a reworked engine seeing an increase in power to 140 hp, and more fuel efficiency. There's also a new ride-by-wire throttle allowing for five riding modes, including Road, Track, Sport, Rain, and a mode for the rider to configure themselves. ABS and traction control are both configurable by the rider; presumably, that allows riders to dial in their preferred settings for their custom riding mode. Other changes include re-designed bodywork, seat, and headlights (which still lack the appeal of the big, googly-eyed lamps the original Speed Triple came with).
