DYNAMIC CHASSIS: Defining the new Street triple and Street triple r’s aggressive new look is the all-new frame. Incorporating a high-pressure die-cast rear subframe for increased rigidity. Not only is the chassis robust and hard-edged, it’s also advanced. Designed to optimize dynamism, agility and rider enjoyment, the light-weight design and lower center of gravity gives you the stability and confidence for an incredible riding experience. And with the addition of adjustable front forks, an rSU with both pre-load and damping adjustment and Nissin radial 4-piston brakes, the Street triple r has even more of an edge.

LOW MOUNTED EXHAUST: Street triple and Street triple r feature a low-mounted stainless steel 3 into 1 exhaust system with a low single-sided silencer. This new design reduces the centre of gravity for an exceptionally agile and exhilarating riding experience.

SWITCHABLE ABS: Brake with confidence and you can cope with the unexpected. the Street triple and Street triple r are available with optional state-of-the-art Anti-Lock Brakes 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 bike is re-started.

Revving to 12,650rpm, the engine delivers excellent performance and the unmistakable unique sound of a triumph triple. Combining the benefits of low down torque and high rev performance, the triple engine truly defines its athletic spirit.

STYLING: with hard-edged street looks, exposed engine, unmistakable twin headlamps and low mounted silencer this is a pure rider’s bike.

CNC MACHINED BRAKE RESERVOIRS: Machined from 6061 t6 aluminum, these anodized black brake reservoirs are the finishing touch to the Street triple and Street triple r. Featuring laser-etched branding and knurled lid, they replace the standard plastic items and compliment the CNC machined brake and clutch levers and other machined triumph components.

BLACK ALUMINUM PADDOCK STAND BOBBINS: Look the part on race and track days with black-finished triumph-branded Paddock Stand Bobbins. Precision machined from acetal for durability, they also feature turned aluminum compression limiters.

TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS): riding is all the more exhilarating when you know that your tyre pressure is optimized. optional tyre pressure sensors for Street triple and Street triple r display current front and rear tyre pressures via the instrument panel. Automatic warning alerts let the rider know immediately if tyres are below optimum levels.

TRIUMPH FRAME PROTECTORS: the Street triple and Street triple r don’t just have a tough image, they also have the option of robust Moulded Nylon Frame Protectors to minimize structural damage in the event of a drop. the Street triple is the first model in the triumph range designed from concept to accept this type of frame protection. tested to ensure the highest quality, there is no substitute for original triumph engineering. engine casing and front spindle protection also available.
