STREET TRIPLE 2013

I have recently taken another look at the latest Street Triple R in my local Triumph dealers, having given it the once over at Motorcycle Live in November.

I have now come to the conclusion, that I don"t find it very attractive as regards overall appearance. I"m sure that performance-wise, it remains as always, up there with the best, but, I can"t say that I am impressed with the colour schemes, as they look a bit "drab" to me.
I would also like to know who had the idea of tack welding on to the exhaust can, what can only be described as a piece of "tin plate" . Surely a bike costing over 7 grand new, should at least be finished off in a more "eye pleasing" manner, sorry Triumph but I wont be rushing out to buy one.:unsure:

Single V triple

The triple will be better but the single has damn good performance for a single, plus does it with lot better economy and being lighter.



EDIT: though I'd have the duke.

The 690 doesn't have any startling performance,and had no top end whatsoever.

Yeh

as I said, the triple would be better but I'd have the duke because I'm an idiot (see username) :biggrin:.


The street triple R is a different matter as the adjustable suspension is something I'd pay the extra for.

EDIT :The Duke engine isn't tuned for top end, it's set up for mid range - it's more a town and twisties bike. They're very different engines designed differently.
