Updated Triumph Street Triple revealed

Triumph has updated its popular Street Triple range with a new chassis, underbelly exhaust, switchable ABS and substantial weight loss. The twin-spar aluminium frame has been designed and built with weight loss in mind, adding to the claime 6kg total weight loss for 2013. As with all Triumph R versions the Street Triple R gets a series of visual changes which include...

Triple bypass ???.......Yes,its ugly

What on earth are TRIUMPH thinking of......? The bike look as though its been stretched and that hideous exhaust is a BIG NO-NO. No doubt,someone will fall in love with it,but me not judging by these pics,go to the back of the class TRIUMPH.

Ug

Exhaust looks like a Honda. Ugly upswept tail looks like a Suzuki. Radiator covers look like Kawasaki. Sticky out front indicators look crap and so do the headlights without the flyscreen. The only thing I ca see that makes it definitely a trumpet is the ludicrous stepped seat - only the Tiger 1050 is more ludicrous. Engine is gorgeous and the lower weight means I want one, but I also want a huge paper bag to ride around in. Fugly bike.

Dont like it. The styling has gone too far away from the original. Each generation is getting uglier.

Me no likey

They buggered up the 1050 restyle and made that one Fugly bike, and seem to have used the same shitty ended stick to transform the Street triple :-o

It needs the optional screen as standard, otherwise it looks awful with those lights stuck out on their own but why do that when you can get the punters to pay for it. Get rid of the tacky plastic blobs on the side, and, worst of all, dump those ridiculous mirrors and fit some nice folding bar-end items. Wow, I should work for Triumph! (Any vacancies? coz I've just taken early retirement!  Thought not!)

Headlights

Been some criticism on here with the ST but really not a lot has changed and what has changed is for the better,lighter frame,neat exhaust,abs and a bit of plastic get over it.What has come up time and time again is those bloody awful Headlights.:mad:

Triumph will have learnt a very painful lesson(maybe)if it ain't broke don't fix it.

The headlights on the Triumph if needed changing changing marganally and not so drastic,it's altered the apperiance drastically.

I'm with the others on here it needs an upper fairing but then it would't be a sreet bike would it but it sure would be better with those lights.
