Triumph has given its best selling Street Triple and Street Triple R models a comprehensive makeover for the 2011 season. The new models feature a host of detail and visual improvements, including the adoption of the striking new headlight design shared with the iconic Speed Triple.
As well as the aggressively styled headlights, the award-winning Street Triples have been given a more contemporary look and higher quality feel through the adoption of several key components, offering increased value with no increase in the retail price.
New colour options and sporting graphics give the class leading middleweight a whole new look. Both models feature the new style Triumph sports script on the tank, debuted on the new Daytona 675R, as well as a stylish new ‘Street Triple 675' logo. As part of Triumph's policy of adding value to its products, the standard model features three metallic paint options at no extra cost (Crystal White, Phantom Black and the distinctive new Imperial Purple), with the higher-specification ‘R' available in Diablo Red, Crystal White and Phantom Black (with gold wheels).
Both models have been ‘dechromed' with brushed steel exhaust headers, heel guards and silencers replacing the previous polished items, while new handlebar clamps, machined detail on the handlebar end weights and redesigned headstock infills add a further touch of quality to the class leader. The standard model also benefits from the same high quality aluminium handlebars, as fitted to the Street Triple R, while both variants feature Triumph's comprehensive latest specification instrument pack.
Mechanically the 2012 Street Triples remain unchanged, with their punchy 675cc three-cylinder engines delivering a class leading 106PS at 11,700rpm, with 68Nm of torque at 9,200rpm. Both the Street Triple and Street Triple R share the same lightweight frame which, like the engine, is derived from the Daytona 675 supersport machine. The Street Triple R is further enhanced by higher-specification, race-track inspired brakes and suspension.
