New Triumph Street Triple R ridden

Here are his first impressions.: “The big news is Triumph have lopped a massive six kilos from the already lightweight Street Triple and it’s really broadened its appeal. The reduction in weight makes it more fun for experienced...

I'm sure it will function brilliantly as did the last version and it looks far better with the little fairing but, for Gods sake, get rid of those awful mirrors and get something in keeping with its style!!!!

ugly duckling

it may well be a good bike to ride but it still looks awful , give it a proper headlamp not a parts bin set, decent mirrors, and an engine note that doesnt sound like it is trying to seize all the time and you will be on a winner.

I hate those headlights, much like nigel100 say's , but then again seeing as this bike sels by bucketloads? Obviously riders that bought the previous models like it. So i can't blame Triumph for keeping the same appearance. They dropped the seat pipes. I reckon loosing 2 features of the previous model might scare away a lot of Street Triple fans. The engine power delivery will be great as always. Never read bad news in any magazine about throttle response on street or speed triples. The mapping on the 3 cilinder MV's seem to be downright dangerous, wich is sad cause their beautiful:-)

Nice enough but...

No underseat exhaust?! Thats what made them sexy. The rear seat looks wimpy now.

Optional ABS, not switchable

That new Transformers stylee exhaust makes it look just like any modern Japanese bike from the side.  At least it's got those fuck ugly lights to make it distinctive from the front.

Well, I'm sure it'll sell loads in the UK and few elsewhere, same as the current one.
