September 12, 2008: Triumph launched the new Street Triple R today at a press launch on the Isle of Man.
This new model is based on the successful Street Triple, is powered by the world renowned Daytona 675 and takes its styling queues from the original hooligan bike, the Speed Triple. The Street Triple R has been designed to rival traditional supersport machines with its superb handling and exceptional stopping power, while offering the comfort and attitude of a streetfighter.
The Street Triple R comes fully equipped with race track technology and can be finely tuned for all road and track conditions.
At its heart is the highly-acclaimed fuel-injected 675cc three-cylinder engine, producing 107 bhp at 11,700rpm. The bike gleans a fully adjustable sports suspension and powerful four-piston radial brakes from the award-winning Daytona 675.
The fully-adjustable 41mm upside down forks and an adjustable rear monoshock unit deliver confident handling, while the radially-mounted four piston calipers grabbing twin 308mm brake discs make for quick stopping.
The sporty feel of this motorcycle is completed with wide, tapered aluminum handlebars from Magura. A 5mm taller seat height puts the Street Triple R rider in the perfect position to attack the twisties or carve its way through the urban jungle.
The Street Triple R’s distinctive look includes two all-new exclusive color schemes: Matte Graphite with orange graphics and Matte Blazing Orange with grey graphics. Both color options are further enhanced by black anodized forks and a two-tone black and graphite seat.

2009 Street Triple R
Following on from the phenomenally successful Street Triple, Triumph is introducing a new, higher-specification version for 2009 – the Street Triple R.
With the Street Triple already regarded as the class-leading middleweight streetfighter, the ‘R’ version takes the standard bike and adds 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 Street Triple R is the Street Triple’s highly-acclaimed fuel-injected 675cc three-cylinder unit, producing 108PS at 11,700rpm, while its fully adjustable sports suspension and powerful four-piston radial brakes are derived from the award-winning, 2008 Daytona 675.
The new Street Triple R has been designed to rival 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 aluminum handlebars from Magura and a 5mm taller seat height that puts the Street Triple R rider in the perfect position to attack the twisty stuff or cut its way through the urban jungle.
Completing the Street Triple R’s distinctive look are two all-new exclusive color schemes: Matt Graphite with orange graphics and Matt Blazing Orange with grey graphics (the latter will be available from January 2009). Both color options are further enhanced by black anodized forks and a two-tone black and graphite seat.
The new Street Triple R will be available in September and priced at £6,099.
