2012 Triumph Street Triple R

Street Triple R. It’s a Street Triple with more attitude and more spec. The most fun you can have on two wheels.

Street Triple R. It’s a Street Triple with more attitude and more spec. The most fun you can have on two wheels.

Take a standard Street Triple and add supersport specification suspension and brakes. Mix in some premium colour schemes and take the skills and experience of Triumph’s outstanding development engineers to hone to perfection. The result? A motorcycle that has won universal acclaim since its introduction in 2008 and which it guaranteed to leave the rider grinning from ear to ear.

The Street Triple R’s lightweight frame has been lifted directly from the award winning Daytona 675 sports bike. Fitted with fully adjustable front and rear suspension, Nissin four-piston radial front calipers and radial master cylinder, the Street Triple R’s sublime handling and control are the stuff of legend. You won’t believe it’s a 675.

For the 2012 model year, the Street Triple R enjoys a stylish makeover with a host of detail changes, bold new colours and graphics, stylish brushed metal finishes and aggressive new headlights shared with the bigger Speed Triple. Distinguishing the Street Triple R are three stunning colour schemes: Diablo Red, Crystal White and a striking Phantom Black and gold combination. The Street Triple R is not a subtle motorcycle. It’s a bike for those who like to take it to the max.
