Never rode the Speed, but did ride the Street Triple R while I still had my 919; even though the riding positions are very similar, the bikes are totally different. The ST was more hooligan with a wider power band in each gear, but the 919 seemed like a much more finished bike. If I had the choice between both bikes at the same price, I would go with the 9, though nothing sounds as sexy as that Triumph triple.
