Big Update = Even More Fun

Triumph Motorcycles reprises its Street Twin model ahead of MY2019 in a bid to maintain the momentum it garnered in ’18 with updated looks and performance to match. This is Trumpet’s most popular unit within its modern-classic lineup, so the pressure is on to give everyone more of what they want. New, first-in-class technology works under the hood to make your rides safer, and improvements to the engine boost the fun-factor by something in the neighborhood of 18-percent for a difference that will definitely register on the old heinie-dyno. I’m curious to see how it hold up to closer scrutiny as well as how it holds up against a likely opponent, so let’s get to it.

2019 Triumph Street Scrambler

Significant Upgrades Including More Power & More Torque

Triumph’s Street Scrambler made a splash when it hit the market a couple of years ago, and the factory rolls out a fresh, new generation for the 2019 model year. That’s right; the “SS” brings more yummy-goodness to the table with an updated look to go with a whole passel of improved electronic features that turn this classic into a thoroughly modern ride. It isn’t all about the visuals and hang-on gear either, the powerplant generates 18% more fun (or power, if you insist) for your riding enjoyment. Really, it would almost be easier to tell you what isn’t new, but that’s not why they feed me, so let’s dig into this new Trumpet and see if we can find a suitable competitor for it.

Top 10 Street Motorcycles of 2018

Top 10 Street Motorcycles of 2018

Naked, lightweight and narrow. The perfect combination for the urban jungle

Although not an official segment of motorcycles, our lifestyle for daily transportation in urban communities have given rise to street motorcycles that are lightweight and nimble for the concrete jungle. Being an agile handler while looking the part is how we need our commute through the asphalt.

This is our list of the machines we think can handle those demands better than any other. A motorcycle with an upright riding position, lacking plastic fairings for that narrow lane splitting ability and a lightweight construction for the ease of flickability is what we are looking for, and here are our top ten:

2018 Triumph Street Triple R

2018 Triumph Street Triple R

It Was A Long Foreplay But Satisfaction Has Arrived

Triumph raises the bar with a mid-level upgrade to its base Street Triple model with the Street Triple R and Street Triple R Low. These two siblings take the family to a more sport-tastic level with a number of upgrades to go with its aggressive good looks, starting with TFT instrumentation and extra electronic engine-control features that see riding modes added alongside the TC system, and an on-board ride computer that monitors and displays fuel burn rates, ambient temps and more. A souped-up engine powers the pair with 116 ponies in the paddock that are just waiting to be turned loose and let run. Upgraded suspension components improve handling with beefier brakes to haul it down, but that’s just the broad strokes. Join me whilst I delve into the details.

2016 - 2018 Triumph Street Twin

Packing More Power Than Its Predecessor

The Triumph Bonneville line has underwent numerous redesigns over the years, but always kept that classic British flavor and dated panache that is both aesthetically pleasing and rooted in its own past. The Bonneville Street Twin joined Triumph’s new-in-2016 Modern Classics group that includes the Bonneville T120 family and the Thruxton R. Today, I want to take a look at the Street Twin and see how well Trumpet did in upholding the reputation of the venerable Bonnie line.

All New Excitement For 2018

Triumph ups the ante for 2018 with a newly-redesigned base model for its Street Triple line; introducing the all-new-for-2018 Street Triple S. The “S” runs with the same naked roadster looks as its predecessor, but with revised bodywork, an all-new powerplant for greater performance and tweaks to the frame to better handle high-speeds. Electronic wizardry abounds in the form of a riding mode feature, traction control, and ABS to help you manage all that newfound power that clocks in with an impressive 111 horsepower, all for under $10 K. What else has Trumpet got in store for us? Let’s check it out.

2017 - 2018 Triumph Street Scrambler

More Street Twin Than Scrambler, But Still Fun

Triumph has been getting some mileage out of its new 900 cc engine, and this mill drives yet another mid-size ride for the “Street Twin” family: the Street Scrambler. As the name implies, this bike is built mainly for urban use but comes with an off-road capability one simply does not get from a straight-up streetbike. The Street Scrambler brings rider-friendly performance and stable handling to the table, but in a market glutted with scrambler models from all over the globe, one has to wonder if that is enough to stay competitive. Let’s delve into this Triumph and find out.

Triumph recalls 2016 Street Triples for possible stalling

Triumph recalls 2016 Street Triples for possible stalling

Potential short circuit to affect 541 2016-2017 vehicles

Triumph, a manufacturer having more than two decades of experience in building top-class motorcycles, has bet big on their Street Triple naked roadster model. Giving the riders a distinctive appeal was the characterful and thrilling 675cc triple cylinder engine that had previously made the Street Triple what it was. The small roadster motorcycle became a Triumph icon back then and came in two variants, the S and R.

Now, both these variants produced from 2016 to 2017 have been issued a recall by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for "an electrical short that could cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash". A total of 541 vehicles have been affected by this recall.

Everything You’d Expect From A Contemporary Cafe’ Racer

Triumph expanded its Bonneville Street Twin family a bit to include the new-in-2017 Street Cup. The SC brings the cafe’-tastic vibe of the Thruxton to a smaller engine bracket with a 900 cc mill, thus opening up the club-racing world to entry-level riders and offering experienced riders the option of downsizing for convenience without giving up too much in the way of fun. Sporty and quick, this ride seems to be everything one would expect from a contemporary cafe’ racer.

2017 Triumph Street Triple

The Brit’s purebred attempt at slaughtering anything coming against it.

Over the past couple of years, Triumph has been sweating it out on the arena and treating us with exceptionally new modern classics over and over again. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and just when you thought it’s time for them to take a well-deserved breather, they just pushed themselves to change the rules of the street and prove that they can still rule the popular roadster/streetfighter category.

Triumph, a manufacturer having more than two decades of experience in building top class motorcycles, has bet big on their new upgraded Street Triple model. Giving the riders a distinctive appeal was the characterful and thrilling 675cc triple cylinder engine that had previously made the Street Triple what it was. The small roadster motorcycle became a Triumph icon back then, and the British brand has set to repeat the same with an all-new 2017 Triumph Street Triple.

It will now have a 765cc under the hood and will come in three variants: S, R and RS, each with their unique level of power, performance, technology and distinctive attitudes. With cutting edge technology, earth shattering equipment list, attention to detail and a new sinister powerplant, looks like the Brits have concocted a winner. Get on and choose your pick.

2017 Triumph Street Triple

2017 Triumph Street Triple

We live in a world where frequently less is perceived to be more, and nowhere is that truer than in the naked sportbike sector. Triumph started leaning toward the scantily-clad market with its Daytona 675 back in the first decade of the new millenium, and now has released a more refined, next-gen naked line with its new Street Triple family. Sleek and sheik, the three current members of Triumph’s wee nudist colony definitely brings sexy back along with a healthy dose of performance and electronic gadgetry to boot. Folks, this is a brand-spankin’-new trio of rides, and if you’re anything like me, you have a healthy respect for British engineering and can’t wait to dig into this new triple-play from across the pond, so let’s get to it.

2012 Triumph Street Triple

2012 Triumph Street Triple

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.

2013 Triumph Street Triple R

2013 Triumph Street Triple R

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.

Hit the jump for more information on the 2013 Triumph Street Triple R.

Triumph Street Triple R gets the Rizoma treatment

Triumph Street Triple R gets the Rizoma treatment

Aftermarket parts supplier Rizoma recently worked their magic on Triumph’s Street Triple R and the result is at least remarkable. The Street Triple R was already the flagship of Hinckley’s middleweight naked lineup, but the extras are truly welcomed.

As known, Rizoma’s strategy starts from the fact that it’s the little things that make a bike special, so they offer just that, meaning their own mirrors, indicator lights, grips, handlebar caps, handlebars, fluid tanks, fluid tank caps, brake/clutch levers, handlebar adapter, license plate support, engine guard, front wheel guard, rear wheel guard, crankcase guard, rear set control kit, rider/passenger pegs, engine oil filter cap, wheel hole cap, bike stand support and lower chain guard.

Although it is less likely that owners of one of the best middleweight inline-triple bikes out there will initially think there’s something missing on their machine, after a while they’ll start feeling the need to spice things up a little bit and there will be Rizoma to help them out. We’re starting to think that these kinds of aftermarket kits for motorcycles are just as well suited as new rims are for cars.

Triumph Street Triple unveils its flat-tracker side

Triumph Street Triple unveils its flat-tracker side

Many will agree with us on the fact that Triumph’s Street Triple is suitable for all kinds of riding activities, but we’re surprised to see it can look good as a flat-tracker as well. The Triumph Street Triple Tracker was built by German dealer Motorcorner and the bike they started from was actually an R version.

As hard as it may be to believe, changes were minimal. The engine is unchanged (but does get an aftermarket exhaust for a racy sound) and so is the chassis apart from the 17” spoked wheels.

Who would have thought that a white/gold paintjob and a pair of aluminum rims would transform Triumph’s middleweight roadster into a veritable flat-track racer? This project follows Motorcorner’s 2009 Bonneville-based street tracker. Hope this turns into a tradition.

2010 Triumph Street Triple / R

2010 Triumph Street Triple / R

Triumph built their reputation with a unique style and innovative ways of obtaining the most performance and benefits from their bikes and the 2010 Street Triple and Street Triple R models reflect their urban sports category best. On one hand, they have the base Street Triple model, which is technically unchanged for 2010 and on the other hand there is the Street Triple R. This last was introduced last year for riders who simply cannot comply with the idea of riding a standard model and life on board does indeed get a little better on it.

Triumph Street Triple R, the better version

Triumph Street Triple R, the better version

When you’re not satisfied with what a motorcycle company is selling to you, but you’re such a big fan and cannot head in the opposite direction, you start taking things into your own hands and out of your pockets. This is exactly what Tony Hartfield did when noticing that the Triumph Street Triple R isn’t quite the performance machine he was expecting when he bought it. So he then headed towards a new 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 (Street Triple R’s original source of inspiration) and built his own idea of a high-performance naked.

Tony retained the 126bhp Daytona 675 motor, which has around 20hp more than the Street Triple, but modified the Daytona chassis in order to fit it with Speed Triple handlebars as well as with Street Triple indicators and headlights. Other upgrades include Giles rear sets, Pazzo levers and Galfer wavey discs front and rear.

Having completed the project, Tony told MCN: "I reckon what I have is what the Triple R should have been." And he may very well be right.

Triumph Street Triple adapts to winter

Triumph Street Triple adapts to winter

Now that winter has demanded its rights, Italian bloggers from Triumph che passione thought at a way for bikers to keep on frenetically rolling down the throttle of their Triumph Street Triple 675 motorcycles and the best idea came to life with the help of photoshop.

Called Triumph Street Triple Trimotard, this winter edition of the great British bike has a caterpillar track instead of a rear wheel and spikes on the front tire. They’ve also modified the bodywork to match the new theme and we must admit that we do like the idea of having such a bike, but can’t say how much we would be able to ride it considering the low temperatures it’s meant to operate in. If this bike will ever turn into reality, it will definitely have to have heated grips and seat because we would really like to bring it up to its winter top speed.

Triumph Street Triple T-L675 Warbird by LSL

Triumph Street Triple T-L675 Warbird by LSL

US WW2 fighter, the P51 Mustang, has inspired German tuner LSL to create the Triumph Street Triple T-L675 Warbird. While we have to admit that this is what first started our interest regarding this bike, the 20 extra horsepower (a total of 115bhp), adjustable levers, GSX-R forks, Öhlins shock and Nissin brakes stand out as the proper means to back up the aggressive look, which in this case is enhanced by the new nose fairing.

This British motorcycle built by a bunch of Germans to look like an American war machine on two wheels has a paintjob that is reminiscent of the Mustang and even Bridgestone tires with a tread design based on tires of the P51’s landing gear. Overall weight is 190kg.

LSL plans to come up with a limited-edition run, which will have the 41mm Kayaba fork of the Street Triple R and cost $23,526. I wonder what the veterans think about this.

As the Speed Triple’s younger brother, the Street Triple is a rebel with plenty of cause – lean, light and agile. The Street Triple has masses of attitude and makes the most sensible rider grin like an idiot.
