This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Speed Triple S motorcycles.
It’s very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Speed Triple S range, like the 2018-2010 Speed Triple RS.
This maintenance schedule applies to the following models:
- 2018 Triumph Speed Triple S
- 2019 Triumph Speed Triple S
- 2020 Triumph Speed Triple S
This is the second generation of the Speed Triple S. There was also an earlier Speed Triple S from 2016-2017. But not a lot changed in the maintenance schedule (we went over it in detail!).

General information about the Triumph Speed Triple S
The Speed Triple S has the same 1050cc engine as the Triple RS but the motorcycle is in a slightly lower — but still awesome — spec.
The Speed Triple S basically just comes with not as good suspension. The standard S model has 43mm Showa forks with fully-adjustable suspension front and rear and both have the same 825mm seat height.
Armed with ABS as standard that is also linked to the rider mode selected, the ABS has three settings – Road, Track and Off. The rear brake is a single piston sliding unit with a 255mm disc. A low, lithe stance is accentuated by sleek new bodywork and a completely new, Daytona 675R-inspired, tailpiece.
Additional developments also include a slip assist clutch, smaller, more efficient radiator and a new free-flowing exhaust that has a 70% increase in flow rate.
