2013 Triumph Street Triple R

Posted on by

The Triumph Street Triple R had always a supersport DNA, but the 2013 version was deigned to reward its rider with more excitement than ever.

The bike is built on a lightweight chassis which features adjustable front forks, a high-pressure die-cast rear subframe for increased rigidity an RSU with both pre-load and damping adjustment. The sporty chassis is combined with similarly sporty Nissin radial 4-piston brakes. Not to mention about the capable ABS system which is switchable and can be easily deactivated.

You also get a low-mounted stainless steel 3 into 1 exhaust system with a low single-sided silencer which reduces the centre of gravity, thus improving the bike’s handling and ride quality.

The Triumph Street Triple R is powered by a liquid cooled 12 valve triple engine, paired with a close ratio six speed gearbox. Maximum power and torque are rated at 106 PS and 68 Nm, respectively.

Overview

Triumph Street Triple R

Triumph’s engineers have honed this roadster to perfection, giving it supersport specification, suspension and brakes. With power, torque and even more excitement, this is the most fun you can have on two wheels.

Its lightweight chassis is even more dynamic, delivering greater levels of agility and precision while keeping you firmly planted. Fitted with additional adjustable front forks, an RSU with both pre-load and damping adjustment the Street Triple R offers renowned ride quality, handling and control.

The liquid cooled 12 valve triple, combined with a close ratio six speed gearbox produce an exhilarating ride, and the under-engine silencer helps lower the centre gravity and improve handling. The Nissin radial 4-piston brakes are built to match the bike’s high performance, coping easily with higher speed and rapid deceleration. And the Street Triple R features state-of-the-art Anti-Lock Brakes as standard that can cope with even the hardest braking. And because the ABS system is switchable, it can be easily deactivated whenever necessary via the instrument panel – it will then automatically re-activate when the motorbike is re-started.

The Street Triple R has distinctive good looks too, with stylish brushed metal finishes, aggressive headlights and a choice of colours complimenting the dark powder coated engine and the telltale red rear sub frame, red side radiator cowls, and red pin stripe detailing to the wheels.

The Street Triple R is not a subtle motorbike. It’s a bike with unmistakable attitude, for riders who want to take it to the max.

Quotes

Triumph Street Triple R

asphaltandrubber ---- "While both the 2013 Triumph Street Triple and the 2013 Triumph Street Triple R benefit from the revised chassis and exhaust package, the Triumph Street Triple R gets the benefit of fully adjustable 41mm forks up front, while its rear shock has adjustable pre-load and rebound settings. The front brake rotors are 310mm, with radial Nissin calipers doing the clamping. A revised geometry of 23.4o / 95.0mm completes the picture. Visually, the R model adds a red rear subframe, red pinstripe to the wheels, and a red-detailed radiator shroud featuring an “R” logo."

Visordown ---- "We tested the Street Triple R, which differs from the standard Street Triple by way of better suspension (the stock bike has non-adjustable front suspension and preload adjustment on the rear), stronger brakes (radially mounted four piston calipers as opposed to floating twin-pistons) and finally a few cosmetic changes; the Street Triple R gets a rear hugger as standard, a red rear subframe, pinstripes on the wheels and a red rear spring. Everything else is the same."

Cycleworld ---- "There have been a few adjustments in the engine compartment: First gear is a bit taller, and Triumph says recalibrating the fuel injection has made the bike 30 percent less thirsty in urban use. (Our ’12 model got 41 mpg in mixed use.) The EFI tune also includes a “kicker” function for reduced engine braking that works well enough to make people assume the bike has a slipper clutch."

Motorcycle-News ---- "Reading the list of changes to the 2013 Street Triple, it’s easy to overlook its most distinctive feature – the 675cc Inline Triple. Derived from the Daytona 675 Supersport, nothing appears to have changed in the little S3’s powertrain. Despite the new exhaust, peak power claims remain 105 horsepower and 50 lb-ft torque, identical to the 2012 specs. "
