New Triumph Street Triple revealed

Triumph has bumped the spec of its 675cc Street Triples gently upward while keeping hold of the prices. The new bikes get a de-chromed look, chunkier aluminium bars (previously just on the Street Triple R model) and of course ‘those’ headlights. The standard bike will cost £6649 on the road with the R set at £7349. The makeover also marks a welcome...

Purple??

Looks nice...but purple??!!! Also, I think they should have done pipes and windscreen differently from the Speed...the 2 bikes still look too much alike imho.

That light is awful, I'm sure drawing the same circular lights was getting boring for the designers at Hinckley but surely they could have come up with something nicer.

Drool....

I love these bikes with the flyscreen on them, even if they are useless...

Would look awesome in the new Daytona R's paint scheme (white, black and red)

Agree, Agree, Agree

....with all three of the other comments so far. Not sure about the purple, never a fan of the new headlight but think it looks good with the flyscreen!

apart from the lights

i quite like the direction they are heading with the other subtle changes
very stealthy and man looking

those lights just not to my taste though

Hmmm

compared to the MV 675cc that was posted last week, this looks rather pedestrian and bland. Style-wise aside, I'm sure it will be a decent bike for day to day commuting.

Fit & Un-finished

In terms of quality it looks a little rudimentary in comparison to the MV Brutale 675. I like the lights, but they look like they are 'hanging' onto the front of the bike. Strip the front of any bike so that the lights sit independently and it will look like this. I don't think the lights are a problem, more so how they are mounted-to nothing.

I think I might have been a bit unfair about the lights earlier on. The look is definitely growing on me...

If i'd got the old one (which i haven't ) i don't think i'd be worried about getting the new one. There isn't enough new to tempt me. I agree the lights look better with the fly screen. From what i've heard there wasn't much wrong with the old one so why change much anyway. The competition looks fierce in that sector of the market.

ABS?

As the article doesn't say anything about an ABS option, can anyone say something about that?

It would be a shame if they don't include an optional ABS this time as they did with the new Speed Triple.

In this day and age it shouldn't be a problem, should it?
