Updated Triumph Street Triple revealed

Nice

Love it, especially the R. The Speed Triple is awesomely capable already, so less weight and better mass centralisation will make it even better. The new exhaust is a bit ugly, but it will look fine when you're near it and looking down, so it's not a big deal. Hope they keep the pricing where it is now, as it's top value.

Well

saving starts now I fear. All I wanted from the street triple was ABS and they've gone a step further and made it switchable which is what I have now. Last thing you want when you're being an idiot and riding with sports tyres on snow is bloody ABS.

Exhaust

look wrong. Nice bike but I still think the exhaust should exit from under the seat. Makes the balance of the design look wrong.

Like the new exhaust but if you were in front of one of these and looked in your mirror, you would think you were being followed by a large insect, scary!! As said already, needs a Fazer sized fairing, at least as an option, especially for us old 'uns who need a bit of wind protection.

less ugly

well its a step in the right direction! now get rid of those stupid headlamps that make it look like someone has raided the parts bin, offer a half faired version, and get the quality up to at least east german level and i would buy one!

Looks, rubs eyes, looks again

So, you're telling me that's not a SVF650 Gladius?  Not an ER6-n either?  Or a Hornet?

Well, OK then, if you say so.
