Reasons to ride The Street Triple
The Street Triple is the most explosive, exhilarating, agile and intuitive performance street motorcycle we’ve ever made.
Offering both an addictive everyday ride and a full-on track weapon in one awesome motorcycle, at the heart of the Street Triple is the same 765cc engine that’s set to exclusively power the Moto2™ Racing World Championship from 2019.
Building on the Street’s well-earned reputation for its quality, character and style, this latest Triple range delivers more in every way. Here are ten reasons why Street Triple riders love their ride so much.
#1 - LIGHTER, MORE AGILE AND BETTER HANDLING
Leaner and meaner than ever, these latest Street Triple models are lighter than the previous generation, holding their position as the lightest bikes in class. That weight reduction, combined with the new higher power 765cc engine, has created an amazing power to weight ratio that’s key to the game-changing performance of the Street Triple. This is a truly explosive, agile and exciting ride. The new gullwing rear swingarm, specifically designed for the new range, delivers increased longitudinal torsional stiffness, combined with an engineered reduction in lateral stiffness. This maximises stability at the highest speeds achieved by the Street Triples and delivers tighter corner exit capability and a more precise chassis behaviour, which can be felt on both road and track.
#2 - HIGHER SPECIFICATION SUSPENSION
This Street Triple range is fitted with a higher specification suspension all round, developed and tuned specifically for the latest models. The range-topping Street Triple RS benefits from the highest-specification Showa big piston ø41mm front forks (adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping), while the rear suspension unit is a premium Öhlins STX40 piggyback reservoir monoshock. The mid-range Street Triple R has ø41mm upside-down fully adjustable Showa separate function big piston front forks with 115mm travel for improved riding comfort without compromise and a Showa piggyback reservoir monoshock rear suspension unit. And the Street Triple S comes with Showa upside-down ø41mm separate function front forks with 110mm travel and a stepped preload-adjustable piggyback reservoir monoshock rear suspension unit.
#3 - INCREDIBLE STOPPING POWER
This Street Triple line-up all have a higher specification brake set-up than the previous generation. The Street Triple RS has range-topping Brembo M50 4-piston radial monobloc calipers on the front, with ratio and span adjustable lever and a Brembo single piston sliding caliper on the back. The Street Triple R has Brembo M4.32 4-piston radial monobloc calipers and a Brembo single piston sliding caliper on the back for greatly improved stopping power over the previous generation. And the Street Triple S is fitted with Nissin 2-piston sliding calipers on the front and a Brembo single piston sliding caliper on the back.
#4 - HIGHER SPECIFICATION TYRES
High specification performance tyres have been fitted to all Street Triples to complement their higher performance and sporting prowess. The Street Triple RS comes with range-topping Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres that provide advanced sporting performance for road and the occasional track use. While the Street Triple S and R models are fitted with premium Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres, for sharp and precise handling as well as excellent stability and grip on the road.
#6 – A STREET TRIPLE TAILOR-MADE TO YOU AND YOUR RIDING STYLE
With three Street Triples to choose from, each with a unique level of power, performance and suspension set-up, there is a tailor-made option for each rider and riding style. From the Street Triple S (built for focused road riding) up to the Street Triple RS (the ultimate performance street motorcycle), each one delivers all of the character and easy rideability the Street Triple is loved for.
#7 - MORE ATTITUDE, SHARPER STYLING, AND A MORE ATHLETIC POISE
The Street Triple range takes the distinctive and dynamic styling of the original to a whole new level, incorporating more nose down focused attitude, with enhanced contemporary and aggressive lines, new bodywork, a sportier twin-seat design and the highest level of finish throughout. There’s more contemporary bodywork with stunning detailing, including new radiator cowls, improved mudguards and rear body panels. There is a new body-colour matched fly screen with integrated air intake, which on the Street Triple S has a more road-focused profile and greater aero protection, and on the Street Triple R and RS has a more aggressive, sharper and sportier profile. The RS has an even higher level of finish with colour-coded belly pan, colour-coded pillion seat cowl with interchangeable pillion seat, and chain guard as standard.
#8 - SPORTIER TWIN SEAT DESIGN AND HIGHER QUALITY DETAILS & FEATURES
The new Street Triples all feature an all-new sharper, sportier twin seat design that has been inspired by the Daytona R and Speed Triple – with no comfort compromise. The Street Triple R and RS have enhanced seat stitching detailing and embossed Triumph logo. On top of this, the range is packed with higher quality details, including rider heel guards and forged pillion footrest hangers. The Street Triple S has a black powder-coated main frame, sub-frame and swingarm. The Street Triple R features Triumph’s signature red rear sub-frame and wheel pinstripes, and the RS has an all-new matt aluminium silver painted rear sub-frame.
#9 – STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY
The new Street Triple represents the very best in rider technology, all designed to deliver the most exciting and engaging Street Triple ride ever, with up to five riding modes, new ride-by-wire, ABS, and switchable traction control, as well as full-colour 5” TFT instruments, LED DRL* headlights (R and RS), and even a quickshifter and lap timer on the RS, the new Street Triple set a totally new benchmark. *Please note that the DRL function is not available in all markets – please check with your local dealer.
