New Triumph Street Triple R ridden

Triumph’s new 2013 Street Triple R is currently being put through its paces in southern Spain by MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves. 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...

Personally I think the Street Triple peaked with the 2010 model, since then Triumph have removed most of the individuality from the styling & the things that made it an iconic bike...the round headlights & underseat exhaust. As some have already said, this just looks like any other bike now..If I was buying one I definately chose an earlier model.

It's not right

Get rid of those awful mirrors, loose the two outside wall-mounted security lights, and add another 20 Bhp, that'll do it.

same old crap indeed !!!

Just been reading some launch reports from three of the leading American magazines, Cycle World etc.Guess what?? they think that the Triumph is a great bike as well.I suppose that the American magazines..:.oh and the Aussie magazines: are all in the pay of Triumph as well,according to the utter garbage posted by the usual Triumph are crap, brigade.50,000 Street triple owners are also wrong as well I suppose? Same old crap from the spouters of the same old crap.I suppose that MCN were being biased too when they raved about the new Kawasaki 636 last week !!oh no couldn't be.I mean if a Ducati or Honda gets a good review,then that's fine,but god help us if a Triumph,or any British product gets a good review,then God help us all.I think some Japanese bikes are good and so are some German and Italian bikes..that's because I'm open-minded and clearly not as bigoted as the anti-British brigade.Pre-emptively slagging off the MCN and Triumph even before the MCN comes out,goes to show the extent of of some peoples bigotry,Wouldn't be nice just to think that a home-grown company is doing well and creating jobs for Britain and making good bikes for us bikers too.Same old crap indeed..totally pathetic.!

'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' as the old saying goes Thats why theres only minor changes to the new model. I'm willing to bet the moaners on here have never even ridden a Street Triple. I have, and if i could afford two bikes, this would be my other. The handling is amazing and I've never ridden another bike that made me want to ride like a lunatic like this does. Don't knock it till you've tried it!

bit off topic but

Nice to see Triumph doing well BUT I’d rather see a 1050 (or even better 1100) Daytona.  I went to the Triumph dealer the other day to look at the 1050R, nice bike, bit more than what I’d want to spend on a naked though.  Asked the bloke about a 1050 Daytona he said SOOO many people ask about Triumph building one but they just aren’t interested.  Pity, come on Triumph grow some balls and make it.
