Triumph will produce a special edition Speed Triple with updated suspension and two-tone paint.

Introduced at the 2009 EICMA show in Milan, Italy, the Triumph Speed Triple SE will have a Tornado red color scheme with a Crystal White center stripe and black pinstripe with matching fly screen and seat cowl.

The new suspension system, which will also be added to all Speed Triple models, has updated internal components. According to Triumph, the rear spring will be 5% softer while the fork will have less dive under heavy braking.

The Triumph Speed Triple gets the two-toned treatment with this special edition version.

The Speed Triple SE will otherwise be mechanically identical to the regular model, now entering its fifth year of production.
