2015 Triumph Street Triple
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
We have created the ultimate in finely honed, thrilling supersport performance packaged in a stunning streetfighter style, with our Street Triple R.
To start with, there was no better bike than our Street Triple to base it on. It already had the advantage with a class leading engine and awesome, focussed looks.
For the Street Triple R weve added high-end adjustable suspension and radially-mounted four-piston brakes, sharpened the geometry and given it a few visual tweaks that tell you this bike is different.
Nothing else comes close to the Street Triple R.Features May Include:
Today’s three cylinder is smoother, revvier and more powerful than a twin but has the individuality and soundtrack that no four can come close to.
We made the gearbox in the Street Triple R with a taller first gear than before so you can make more of the engines depth of torque for smoother urban riding.
And to keep it smooth through the gears weve fitted a gear-driven balance shaft, so your focus on long stints at high speeds isn’t interrupted by vibration.
Undoubtedly the most obvious change for the Street Triple R is the exhaust. Now tucked tight beneath the engine it gives the tail end a lean, more modern look and lowers the centre of gravity for even better handling.
The sound is now even better than before with the new intake path through the frame turning up volume for an even snarlier, more engaging sound than ever. Making the Street Triple R one of the most exciting motorcycles on the road today.
The geometry is sharper than the Street Triples with a 0.7 degree steeper rake angle at 23.4 degrees and 4.6mm less trail at 95mm, designed to give the R even more responsive handling.
A chassis as good as the Street Triple R’s needs suspension to match, so it comes with KYB 41mm upside down forks with adjustable preload, rebound and compression damping, and a rear monoshock with piggy back reservoir adjustable for rebound and compression damping.
By making Street Triple R 6kg lighter with a 3 per cent increase in weight distribution over the front, now at 52 per cent, and with its mass more centralised, the Street Triple R is now more agile and responsive than ever. The overall design gives you the stability and confidence for an incredible riding experience.
We’ve uprated the brakes on the R with a pair of radially-mounted, four-piston Nissin callipers up front to give you exceptional braking force with almost telepathic feedback.
- Riding Position
With the Street Triple R you get a different set up to the standard model for more focused supersport performance.
Where ABS is fitted its possible to disable it via the dash if required, and it automatically activates again each time the ignition is switched on, so theres no forgetting youve turned it off.
- Instruments and Computer
The Street Triple R offers the same very high level of equipment and impressive detailing as the standard model. The dash is still as comprehensive as it always was with its twin trip computer showing economy, range, gear indicator, lap timer and programmable gear change lights.
Just in case your bike attracts the wrong kind of attention, we’ve added a high technology security system. It detects a microchip in the key body and if its not present the ignition system is disabled.
This prevents a copy of the correct key being used to switch the bike on.
