New Street Triple RX spied

1 of 1

This is the new Triumph Street Triple RX, if the decal on the side panel is to be believed. Spied last week undergoing a test at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire, the model is clearly an interim update or special edition, rather than a new version of the massively popular triple.

Already a rampant sales success for Triumph, the Street Triple has featured in the UK’s top ten best sellers consistently since its launch in 2007, and subsequent 2013 update. This new version will only help it stay there, with its aggressive R styling, and the addition of a new tail unit, seemingly directly lifted from it’s sister model, the Daytona 675. Fitted with a flush-mounted cowl, it almost looks like a single seat unit, but the rear pegs reveal that there is a pillion perch hidden beneath.

Also visibly different is the colour of the Nissin radial brake calipers, while the units themselves appear to be identical to the existing Street Triple R’s. Triumph, predictably, declined to comment on the existence of the RX, leaving us guessing about any further specification changes and price, but we’d assume that this will be a 2015 model, unveiled in a few week’s time at one of the large European shows, and to go on sale in Spring. We’d expect it to be priced very similarly to the existing R.
