First official picture of the Triumph Street Triple 675

The Daytona 675 takes its clothes off, gets ready to brawl..

Yeah, you’ve read about it in dozens of places including here, and the first official picture is finally out. Triumph say they will launch the naked version of the Daytona 675 – the Street Triple 675 – by the end of next month!

Compared with the Daytona 675, the Street Triple will be fitted with different front suspension and brakes, and will have a completely different rear end, which will be on the lines of the bigger Speed Triple.

The gearing on the new bike has been revised, and as you’d expect, the Daytona’s 675cc three-cylinder engine has been ‘retuned,’ which means slightly more low- and mid-range torque, and slightly less peak power. Still, with around 105 – 110bhp on tap, the Street Triple should be anything but sluggish.

The Street Triple will make its debut at the end of June this year, at the Tridays Festival in Neukirchen, Germany. The bike is expected to cost about US$9,000 and you can register for more information at the Triumph website here.
