Triumph have a new special edition version of the Street Triple R - the Street Triple RX - which gets matt-aluminium silver paint, red wheels, seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen as standard. The bike's 675cc three-cylinder engine produces 105 horsepower and 68Nm of torque, suspension is fully adjustable KYB 41mm forks and fully adjustable monoshock, and the Nissin brakes feature 4-piston radial-mount calipers at the front, with ABS.
"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," says a press note, exalting the virtues of the Street Triple RX. Equipment levels on this bike are high, it tells us - there's an engine immobilizer, comprehensive LCD digital instrumentation that includes a built-in lap timer, programmable gear shift lights, fuel gauge, clock and gear position indicator, 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 2015 Triumph Street Triple Rx comes with an unlimited mileage, two-year factory warranty. Service intervals are every 6,000 miles or one year, whichever is soonest. Not too bad, we think. Those looking for a middleweight supersports machine should definitely check this one out.
