Segment: Sport Touring

The Sprint 955 has the motor based on the Daytona's 12-valve liquid-cooled unit, tuned for an even broader spread of midrange torque while still producing a maximum of 110PS (108bhp).

The fuel-injected power plant gives the Speed Triple brutal acceleration from almost any engine speed, plus the ability to be ridden effortlessly with minimal use of the smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox.
