2012 Triumph Street Triple

Posted on by

Triumph’s Street Triple has been one of the success stories of recent years, topping the sales charts and collecting numerous accolades along the way.
Fusing the style and attitude of the Speed Triple with the agility of the Daytona 675, and delivering it all for a very competitive price, the Street Triple wowed the industry when it arrived in 2008 and continues to dominate the middleweight naked sports bike class.

The Street Triple gains a new look for 2012, featuring aggressive new headlights from the bigger Speed Triple and a host of detail changes to keep it ahead of middleweight competition.

Designed alongside the Daytona 675 and sharing the same engine and frame, the Street Triple packs a powerful 105bhp punch at 11,700rpm and delivers a peak 50 lb-ft. of torque. The Street Triple’s 675cc three-cylinder engine has been tuned for incredibly strong low- to mid-range performance and delivers an exhilarating ride that can be enjoyed by riders of all ages and experience.

Press Release

Triumph Street Triple

Triumph Street Triple

  • Multiple award-winning middleweight streetfighter
  • 105bhp, 675cc three-cylinder engine, 50 lb-ft. of torque
  • Speed Triple-inspired styling, updated for 2012
  • Daytona 675-derived sports chassis
  • Confidence inspiring low seat and light weight
  • Two-year unlimited mileage warranty

The Street Triple’s narrow and lightweight aluminum frame contributes to a motorcycle that weighs just 416 lbs. fully fueled and ready to ride. Combined with the low dual seat and wide handlebars, the Street Triple is well-balanced and easy to ride.

Despite its entry level price, the Street Triple comes standard with a high level of equipment. Dual headlamps and twin underseat exhaust canisters mirror those of the bigger Speed Triple, while the comprehensive instrumentation includes a built-in lap timer, programmable gear change lights, clock and gear indicator, as well as a large tachometer and digital speedo. The Street Triple also includes the same lightweight alloy wheels featured on the Daytona 675 supersports machine, 41mm upside down forks and a confidence-inspiring dual 308mm disc front brake set-up with two-piston sliding calipers. Updates to the 2012 model include new brushed finishes on the exhaust canisters and control plates, high-specification tapered aluminium handlebars and sporty new decals.

Three metallic color options are available for the Street Triple in 2012: Phantom Black, Crystal White and the striking new Imperial Purple.
Triumph’s range of genuine accessories is hugely popular with Street Triple owners. Color-matched flyscreens, belly pans and seat cowls give the bike a more sporting and aggressive look, while Arrow Special Parts has developed both a three-into-one “low boy” exhaust system and lightweight slip-on exhausts for improved performance and a weight reduction. Other key accessories include stylish bar end mirrors, CNC-machined clutch and brake levers and a “plug and play” quickshifter that can be fitted to the Street Triple in minutes.
