Triumph officially unveil Street Triple 675


Triumph Street Triple: Light, adequately powerful and sporty

Six weeks ago, we showed you the first official picture of the Triumph Street Triple. Now, Triumph have officially unveiled the Street Triple – the bike was shown at the Triumph Tridays in Neukirchen, Austria.

Using the Daytona 675’s three-cylinder engine, the Street Triple packs 107 horsepower and 69Nm of torque, which should make for entertaining performance in a bike that weighs 167kg.

The wheels, brakes, chassis and swingarm have been taken from the Daytona and in keeping with its sporting intent the Street Triple is fitted with Dunlop Sportmax Qualifier (120/70 ZR17 front and 180/55 ZR17 rear) rubber as standard. Pirelli SuperCorsa Pro and Bridgestone BT014G tyres are approved options. Kayaba suspension units are fitted front and rear.

Says Tue Mantoni, Triumph’s Commercial Director, “It’s a great bike for both new and experienced riders, with distinctive style, and class-leading performance in an affordable package. Reaction from customers to the Street Triple has been fantastic and our dealers are very much looking forward to receiving their demo bikes shortly.” More details on the Triumph website here.
