Staff Blog: Natural order restored

I thought I was done for winter. After a couple of weeks on holiday I%X92d not got back into the habit of riding to work every day, thanks to my insistence that I would only ride when I wanted to, not because I felt I needed to. There%X92s also my reluctance to get the Triumph coated in winter cack as...



Staff Blog: Triumph Street Triple R at Silverstone

  Two years ago, MCN Consumer Editor Tony Hoare almost died after an accident at Cadwell Park. He hadn't been back on track since, until he took his Triumph Street Triple R for a trackday on the International Circuit at Silverstone. brightcove.createExperiences(); BLOG13...

Staff Blog: In search of confidence

I%X92ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R%X92s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I%X92m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I%X92ve never ridden on...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I%X92ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there%X92s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just to...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

This year I%X92ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it%X92s not me, it%X92s the bike  - I don%X92t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn%X92t like the wet. The handling doesn%X92t inspire me to commute the long way on...



Video: 2013 Triumph Street Triple R first ride

The current Triumph Street Triple, the British firm%X92s best selling machine in the past five years (they%X92ve sold 50,000), weighs just 189kg, full of fuel and ready-to-go, which is bugger-all. This new version, available in dealers in the middle of November is lighter still. Weighing a piffling 183kg it%X92s going to strike fear into its main rival: the 211kg Suzuki GSR750,...

Best tyres for a Triumph Street Triple R?

It%X92s tyre replacement time on my Triumph Street Triple R, and I'm thinking of moving away from "sports tyres" as I never go near a track. I do give it the beans on the road though and wear the tyres up to the edges. I've been impressed with the Dunlop Roadsmarts on my VFR but wondered if the new Bridgestone...
