2009 Triumph Street Triple R announced


The 2009 Triumph Street Triple. Things get even better...

Things just got better for fans of Triumph’s Street Triple – the company has just announced a higher-spec R version for 2009. On the list of goodies are fully-adjustable 41mm USD forks, fully adjustable monoshock, and 308mm front disc brakes (Nissin) with radial-mount four-piston calipers.

The Street Triple R’s 675cc three-cylinder engine remains the same, producing 106 horsepower at 11700rpm. The bike gets new tapered aluminium handlebars from Magura, that are wider than before. According to Triumph, this, combined with a 5mm taller seat height makes for a better riding position.

The 2009 Street Triple R will be available in two colour schemes – matt graphite with orange graphics, and matt orange with grey graphics. Adding to the style quotient are black-anodised forks and two-tone black-and-graphite seats. The bike’s price and availability are yet to be announced.
