How to improve on success? Keep the engine, but change the chassis and styling

Ride Quality & Brakes 5 out of 5

The 2013 Street Triple has a lighter chassis and swingarm than the previous model which results in a bike that handles incredibly well and almost floats over bumps. The suspension isn't fully-adjustable but it doesn't matter as it's set up so well out of the box. Triumph gave the Street Triple a more generous steering lock and the side-mounted exhaust was claimed to improve the handling.

Engine 5 out of 5

Unlike the Daytona 675, which received a totally new engine for 2013, the Street Triple’s motor is essentially the same as the previous model with subtle modifications aimed at responding to customer feedback. The new fuel-injection bodies, ECU settings and higher first gear were claimed byTriumph to give a 30% boost in fuel efficiency under urban conditions, a notorious annoyance of owners. With little else changed on the engine it remains as good as the original with a strong midrange and howling soundtrack.

Build Quality & Reliability 5 out of 5

There are no question marks over the reliability or build quality of the Street Triple and the attention to detail is excellent.

Insurance, running costs & value 5 out of 5

The Street Triple was excellent value when it was introduced - it really was that good. Even today on the used market they're good value if you're patient and willing to shop around.

Equipment 4 out of 5

As motorcycles go the Street Triple is pretty basic but for 2013 Trumph added optional ABS. That's your lot when it comes to electronics. No rider modes, no wheelie control, no quickshifter. But the Street Triple is so good you never notice all these things - which are almost standard on similar bikes no - are missing.
