Triumph's Street Triple R. The most fun you can have on two wheels. One of the purest motorcycles on the planet. Voted bike of the year in the UK's Bike magazine and many others. It is a phenomenon.
Taking the standard Street Triple as its base, Triumph added supersport specification suspension and brakes, mixed in some premium colour schemes and charged their outstanding development engineers with honing the package to perfection. The result? A motorcycle that has won universal acclaim since its introduction in 2008 and which it guaranteed to leave the rider grinning from ear to ear. The Street Triple R.
The Street Triple R's lightweight frame has been lifted directly from the award- winning Daytona 675 sports bike and comes packed with race track technology. Fully-adjustable 41mm upside down forks and a top-spec rear monoshock unit with piggy back reservoir deliver sublime handling, while radially-mounted four piston calipers grab the twin 308mm brake discs and ensure the Street Triple R stops as well as it goes.
At the heart of the Street Triple R is the same acclaimed, 675cc triple cylinder engine that powers the Street Triple, so there's masses of grunt on tap from low revs through to the redline. Peak power is a healthy 106PS at 11,700rpm, while peak torque of 68Nm is delivered at 9,100rpm.
The Street Triple R rivals traditional supersport machines with its superlative handling and stunning stopping power, while offering the comfort and attitude of a streetfighter. The sporty feel is completed with wide, tapered, handlebars from Magura and a 5mm taller seat height than the standard model puts the Street Triple R rider in the perfect position to attack the twisty stuff or cut its way through the urban jungle.
The Street Triple R also benefits from the same updates for 2010 as the Street Triple: lighter rear wheel and rear sprocket, revised EFI calibration for smoother throttle response at low speeds and new instruments for easier operation.
Completing the Street Triple R's distinctive look are three distinctive colour options - Matt Graphite, Matt Orange and gloss Phantom Black with gold wheels. All colour options come with anodised black upside down front forks and a two- tone stitched seat, while the 'R' can be made to stand out even further through a comprehensive range of official Triumph accessories.
