Triumph Speed Triple T509 (885)


  • Looks and power
  • Not much!

What Is It?

In 1997 Triumph evolved the T309 into the T509. Power was provided by a liquid cooled 885cc inline three cylinder engine, producing 108bhp at 9,300rpm and maximum torque at 7,600rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame
  • Dual 320mm discs up front with 2 piston calipers
  • 220mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable Showa 45mm fork
  • Adjustable Showa rear shock
  • 3->1 exhaust system
  • Plastic fuel tank
  • 6 speed gearbox
  • Fuel injection

Compared to the T309 power is up 11bhp, the tubular frame is far more obvious and the soon to become iconic twin "bug eye" headlights were introduced. In addition the swingarm switched to single sided and from 1998 the handlebars to a flat bar rather than wrist ache inducing clip-ons. Weight is down a considerable 13kg.

The bike is basically the Aluminium frame and brakes from the T959 Daytona but with a new 885cc engine featuring fuel injection, while the transmission is moved up from 5 to 6 gears and the front disc is slightly larger.

The 3-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.

Colours: Green, black, orange
