Triumph’s new Street Triple looks just like a Speed Triple but with the engine out of the Daytona 675 – and it’s a revalation. The Street Triple is light, fast, fun, agile, sounds great, stylish, cool and cheap, too. Overnight the new Triumph has made its rivals seem like relics. The Street Triple isn’t just the best in its class it’s good enough and cheap enough to tempt all but the most performance-obsessed away from their sportsbikes. Not only that the little Triumph is comfortable enough to be an everyday town motorcycle, a first big bike or Sunday morning blaster. Like the new Triumphs of recent times, it seems like the firm from Hinckley once re-written the rule book.
