The approach to our roadsters is simple. If it doesn’t enhance the power, handling, feel or sound of the bike it doesn’t go on it.

Street life doesn’t get more stimulating than this. The Street Triple Rx combines aggressive style and devilish good looks to create an extreme, eye-catching machine, borrowing inspiration from its TT and Daytona 200 winning supersports sibling, the Daytona 675R.

The highest-spec variant Triumph’s Street Triple R, its unique visual features include a new razor-sharp rear profile, a new Matt Aluminium Silver paint scheme and revised graphics.

The angular seat unit is transplanted from the Daytona, further emphasizing the Street Triple’s already aggressive stance. The crisp lines are accented by the new Matt Aluminum Silver paint and deep Diablo Red details, complimented by the striking hand painted finish on the front and rear lightweight race inspired wheels. Triumph’s seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen complete the aesthetics to round off the purposeful intent of the Rx.

At the heart of the Street Triple RX is Triumph’s signature triple engine. The 675cc, 12-valve unit is derived from the legendary Triumph Daytona 675 sportsbike, but is carefully retuned to deliver a punchy 106PS and magnificently linear 68Nm of torque for effortless drive and acceleration. Combined with a slick, close-ratio six-speed gearbox, Triumph’s quickshifter and flawless throttle control, the powerplant delivers an exhilarating ride. All accompanied by a soulful, characteristic growling exhaust note, one of the most distinctive and charismatic sounds in motorcycling.

The Street Triple Rx’s ability to satisfy anyone from novice rider to the most experienced thrill-seeker doesn’t just come from its engine. The expertly crafted riding position spreads rider effort perfectly between its tapered flat bars, sculpted seat and slightly rear-set alloy footpegs, delivering maximum comfort and control. The refined chassis and dynamic balance features a distinctive eight-piece, aluminium twin spar frame and two-piece die cast rear subframe, mated to 41mm KYB inverted front forks fully adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping, giving complete freedom to set the front end up to suit riding styles and conditions, and that can be easily configured to suit track or road riding.

Braking from twin 310mm floating discs is assisted by a sophisticated, standard-fitment anti-lock brake system, with the option to be switched off if required. A low-slung stainless steel exhaust minimises the effect of the already minimal weight. And, together with a painstakingly calibrated chassis geometry, the Street Triple Rx exudes a flowing, natural confidence in its handling, providing both stability and agility whatever the road speed or riding conditions.

Although one of the Street Triple Rx’s strengths is its elegant simplicity and practicality, it comes with a high level of equipment as standard. This includes an engine immobilizer, while further security can be found via a Triumph D lock accessory that stows under the seat.

Comprehensive LCD digital instrumentation includes a built-in lap timer, programmable gear shift lights, fuel gauge, clock and gear position indicator, as well as a large, clear tachometer and digital speedo. The clocks can also display front and rear tyre pressures when the optional Triumph Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is fitted.

The Street Triple Rx fuses the style and attitude of a naked streetbike with the handling and performance of a sportsbike, with beautiful styling to complete the package. An extensive range of Triumph genuine accessories allow owners to further personalise their bike.

The Street Triple Rx comes with an unlimited mileage, two year factory warranty. Service intervals are every 6000 miles, or one year, whichever is soonest.

The Street Triple Rx – a true powerhouse street performer.

I am in general a huge Triumph fan, but this one....I can't say I really like it, to me it looks like someone was in the middle of building a bike then got bore in the middle of the project and walked away from it, leaving it ridable, but incomplete.....sorry Triumph, as much as it grieves to do so, but I am going to have to vote uncool...

The Speed and Street Triples are two of my favorite bikes, so this one gets a biased awesome vote from me. That said, I'd be happier with a plain Street Triple R. I don't exactly like the Rx paint scheme, plus I'd rather not have the belly pan and that bikini fairing. (Isn't completely naked preferable to having a bikini? ;P)

* I also wonder if those red plastic pieces beside the engine are removable without exposing something even uglier.

Thanks Mike! :kicking:

I didn't expect the first three posts out of the gate be negative, but there is something about this version of the Street Triple that works for me. I love the back end off of the Daytona and the colour does it for me as well. I have always been a fan of the street-Triple and it survived the transition away from round headlights much better than Speedtriple which to me, looks like "O Ring".

The original version was great bike. I have never ridden this latest version but I bet it is awesome.

My problem with this model of the Street Triple is that, it is not "pure" so to speak. The Street Triple is if I am correct, suppose to be a factory "Street Fighter" and the spiritual descendant of the Cafe Racers of old that Triumph was so much part of. Street Fighters were basically RR type bikes that (often after being pranged and damaged), had their plastic body work and fenders removed, often with modified minimal lights, just or barely enough to be functional and street legal, leaving you with a naked and mean looking RR ready to snarl.

In my humble opinion, Triumph badly missed the mark with this model. That belly pan, goofy looking cowl over even more goofy looking head lights along with the red plastic engine covers ruins what I think would be a great bike. Strip away the fluff and it would be cool if not awesome.....

"Spiritual?" "Pure?" Relative to a crashed sports bike? When I look at at when this started (about 20 minutes after the first fully faired sportbike was crashed), pretty much anything and everything went so I not sure what drives the definition of "pure". Beyond that, to each his own with regards to the "correct" amount of bodywork. I think they nailed every aspect of this one, and despite the comments it looks like a lot of others do too.

I think I would rather the Yamaha FZ-09 but I am not a big fan of this market niche.

I must be getting old as I have no interest at all in owning a "streetfighter". I can understand a naked bike for just "riding around" town on a nice day, but I am long past that point in my life when I have any interest at all in any type of around town street hooliganism. I would purchase a Bonneville T100 long before I would get this moto.

Was not originally a fan of the non-round headlight Street Triple but it has grown on me and this incarnation looks quite good. Still not as awesome as the totally hooligan, "crashed-1986 GSXR-look" original Speed Triple, but still awesome nonetheless. :kicking:

I voted: Cool

It's a really great looking bike, the colour combination is just perfect. Naked, standard, British! Love the triple cylinder idea, although it's getting semi-non-unique today. The price is a little high for a 600cc bike though, I'd like to see it about $1k lower, although I'm impressed the CDN MSRP is just $300 more than the US cost. Especially now as the USD/CDN is 26%! I say, buy this while you can, you can't lose on the exchange rates!

But I'm STILL getting used to the (to me) awkward twin headlights, I so much prefer the twin round headlight design in the previous model. Thus, it gets a Cool+, not an awesome. Wish I could fit on the darn thing, I've tried many times without success.


High_Side: You are most welcome! Thanks for the Cool Wall suggestion!

2015 Triumph Street Triple Rx SE ABS - Coolness Factor = 72.6%
Featured: March 6th, 2015 - March 13th, 2015
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50930
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... -Rx-SE.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Triumph Street Triple Rx SE ABS is:

Awesome (3 points) 39% [ 11 ]
Cool (2 points) 43% [ 12 ]
Uncool (1 point) 14% [ 4 ]
Fail (0 point) 4% [ 1 ]

Total votes: 28


= a Coolwall Factor of 72.6%

NOTES: Isn't amazing how many great (and not so great) bikes we have had up on the Cool Wall these past years. I find it fascinating to see the results roll in and read the discussions. Like Forrest says... You never know what you'll get. This week, the 2015 Triumph Street Triple Rx SE ABS is a bit of a rehash of the Street Triple SE but it's more of a cherry on the top approach. Triumph says, how do we do that little bit better? And 72.6%, that's pretty darn good in anyone's books.

Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
