Triumph Launches the Street Triple!
The countdown is over! The much
awaited Triumph Street Triple was officially unveiled to
over 5,000 Triumph owners on Saturday, June 30th, at
Triumph Tridays in Neukirchen, Austria.
The Street Triple offers 675cc of pure,
naked aggression, combining the streetfighter styling of
its older brother, the Speed Triple, with the 675cc
engine, chassis and performance of the award-winning
Daytona 675. Genetically engineered by Triumph,
the Street Triple is set to become the most desirable
naked middleweight motorcycle in the market.
Packing a powerful punch of 107
horsepower (claimed) and 51 lbs. ft. of torque, the
Street Triple is set to dominate the class (of one!),
and probably a few of the heavyweights too. The
proven 675 engine should deliver strong performance from
idle to the redline, while the distinctive three
cylinder feel, and unmistakable sound, offer unique
The Street Triple’s aluminum frame and
swingarm come directly from the Daytona 675, while the
Nissin two piston sliding calipers with sintered pads
(the same material as used on the Daytona 675) give
braking power that is top of its class.
The lightweight five-spoked wheels also
come straight from the Daytona 675, with Dunlop Sportmax
Qualifier tires fitted as standard (120/70 ZR17 front
and 180/55 ZR17 rear). Lean and agile, the Street
Triple is equipped with Kayaba suspension front and
rear, with rear preload adjustment, giving class leading
The low dual seat and new foot pegs and
handlebars provide a comfortable riding position for
rider and passenger without jeopardizing the aggressive
streetfighter styling of the bike. The headlights
echo the distinctive units used on the Speed Triple,
while the comprehensive instrument console shares the
same functionality as that on the Daytona 675 but is
restyled to fit neatly within the lines of the Street
Triumph’s Commercial Director, Tue
Mantoni, said "The Street Triple is one of the most
important models we’ve ever brought to market, giving
Triumph a strong presence in this important segment and
offering a new entry point to Triumph’s range of sports
bikes. It’s a great bike for both new and
experienced riders, with distinctive style and class
leading performance in an affordable package.
