We always loved Triumph for their ability to mix the old school style with modern technologies and contemporary lines. And the Triumph Street Triple makes no exception. It is pretty safe to say that this model is arguably one of the best looking roadsters designed by the company and we especially like the twin headlights, the angular windshield and sharp lines of the body.

With Triumph’s philosophy, you’ll feel at one with the machine, and the Street Triple’s 675cc, liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine rewards you with smooth power delivery whenever you open up the throttle. Moreover, this combination of cutting-edge technology and concentration on detail give you complete confidence while you seat behind the handlebar.

The motorcycle’s low-seat height and low weight creates the perfect conditions for fast riding, while the compact chassis provides easy handling.

The engine cranks out a maximum speed of 106 PS at 11850 rpm and 68 Nm of torque at 9750 rpm.
