The Triumph Street Triple R already has some impressive credentials to its name, but just like a lot of things in this world, "impressive" isn’t impressive enough if you can help it become even more so.

That’s exactly what Triumph was thinking of with the new Street Triple R.

The bike also has new style headlights, new mesh headstock infill panels, brushed finishes on the exhaust canisters, and the Triumph branding on the clutch and alternator covers.

In terms of performance, the Street Triple R comes powered by a 675cc liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine that produces an impressive 105 horsepower, providing a lively yet composed ride that few bikes in its class can replicate. After all, there’s a reason why the Street Triple R was once the recipient of numerous accolades, including “Bike of the Year” awards from Bike magazine in the UK and Moto Navi of Japan.

Simply put, this bike is a chrome menace on two wheels.

Triumph’s most iconic model, the Speed Triple , delivers a new level of handling and composure to the super naked class, something that isn’t all that surprising, especially since we’re dealing with a Triumph.

With the sharpest and most aggressive look yet from a Speed Triple - and more power from the legendary 1050cc triple - the latest Speed Triple builds on a legacy that has seen over 70,000 Speed Triples sold since the model was first introduced in the market back in 1994.

At only 471 lbs. fully fueled, the latest Speed Triple is over six lbs. lighter than the previous model. The front and rear wheels are each two lbs. lighter, while the narrower frame and improved packaging allows for increased ground clearance, making the machine feel incredibly light and nimble. Adding to the superb handling and performance characteristics of the bike are new 43mm forks that offer excellent control and plushness and are fully adjustable for preload, rebound, and compression damping on both legs. Brembo radial caliper brakes grip 320mm rotors, with the option of Triumph’s anti-lock braking system, are also available to the rider.

As far as the design of the bike goes, the aggressive body panels and heavily sculpted seat accentuate the Speed Triple’s street fighting stance and complement the twin headlights. Color-coded radiator cowls are a new feature and sport stylish Speed Triple decals. Three color options are available - Crystal White, Phantom Black and Diablo Red - with color-coded flyscreen, seat cowl, and belly pan as genuine Triumph accessories.

When you’re looking for a road and track-ready supersport machine that’s itching to be unleashed out into the world, there aren’t a lot of bikes in the market that can be considered better choices than the Daytona 675R.

Taking the already sublime Daytona 675 as its base, the 675R is the fruit of a successful collaboration between Triumph’s engineers and Swedish suspension specialists Öhlins. Together, the two companies have created a machine that can really be appreciated on the circuit by expert riders.

It comes with a hugger, an exhaust heat shield, a front mudguard, a standard-fit quick shifter, and the Daytona 675’s comprehensive instrumentation, which includes a lap timer and programmable gear change lights.

Mechanically the Daytona 675R features the same powertrain as that of the standard Daytona 675 - a powerful 675cc liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine - delivering an impressive 124 brake horsepower at 12,600rpm to go with a class-leading 53 lb/ft of torque. This setup makes it as engaging and flattering as any supersports bike on the market today.

As far as Öhlins is concerned, the leading authority in suspension systems contributed its revolutionary 43mm NIX30 forks, a system that’s usually only found on the racetrack or ultra-exotic Italian machines, and its MotoGP-developed TTX36 rear suspension unit. Radially mounted Monobloc calipers and a radial master cylinder from Italian specialist Brembo were specified to ensure the Daytona 675R also has class-leading stopping power.
