A global hit since its introduction for 2008, the Street Triple fuses the style and attitude of the iconic Speed Triple with the performance and agility of the class leading Daytona 675 supersports machine. The result is a truly impressive middleweight streetfighter that has attained critical success around the world.
The Daytona 675 derived triple packs a powerful punch of 106PS peak power delivered at 11,700rpm, complemented by incredibly strong low and midrange performance. The Daytona 675's engine was designed to be seen from the outset so the clean and simple lines compliment the Street Triple perfectly.
The Street Triple's aluminium frame also comes directly from the Daytona and was specifically designed to take advantage of the narrow three-cylinder engine design. Rake is set at 24.3°, with 95.3mm (3.75in) trail. The wheelbase is 1,395mm (54.9in), while dry weight is 167kg (367lbs). Braking power is at the top of its class thanks to the Nissin twin-piston calipers with sintered pads.
The low dual seat and wide handlebars provide a comfortable riding position for both rider and pillion without jeopardising the aggressive streetfighter styling of the bike. Many of the styling cues come straight from the bigger Speed Triple, such as the upside-down forks and the distinctive bug-eyed headlamps.
For 2010 the Street Triple features a host of refinements to make the riding experience even more pleasurable. These include a lighter weight rear wheel and rear sprocket, which shaves around a kilogram from the unsprung weight, recalibrated EFI for smoother throttle response at lower speeds and revised instruments for easier use and a fresh new look.
The Triumph Street Triple is available in three colour options: Phantom Black, Fusion White and, new for 2010, Tornado Red. As with all Triumph motorcycles, a full range of genuine accessories is available for the Street Triple, including a range of practical and stylish fly screens and performance exhaust options developed in collaboration with Italian performance house Arrow Special Parts.
