2008 Triumph Street Triple

2008 Triumph Street Triple

  • All new model

675cc of Pure, Naked Aggression
Through a potent combination of performance DNA extracted from the Daytona 675 and aggressive streetfighter styling drawn from the Speed Triple, Triumph have created the most desirable naked middleweight motorcycle in the market. As the Speed Triple’s younger brother, the Street Triple is a rebel with plenty of cause – lean, light, agile and dripping with attitude.

Packing a powerful punch of 108PS peak power (106bhp) delivered at 11,700rpm, the Street Triple sits at the top of the naked middleweight category, and with 69Nm (51ft.lbf) of torque arriving at 9,100rpm, the bike is guaranteed to outperform all of its middleweight competitors and quite a few of the heavyweights too. The proven 675cc water-cooled three-cylinder 12-valve engine delivers strong low and midrange performance, from tickover to the redline. The close ratio six-speed gearbox maximises the effectiveness of the engine’s impressive power and torque, meaning you’ve always got the perfect gear. One of the best things about the bike’s performance is that you don’t have to work hard to get it: the Street Triple produces more than 60Nm (44ft.lbf) of torque from 3,500rpm right through to 12,300rpm.

The Street Triple’s aluminium frame comes directly from the Daytona and was specifically designed to take advantage of the narrow three-cylinder engine design. Rake is set at 24.3°, with 95.3mm (3.75in) trail. The wheelbase is 1,395mm (54.9in), whilst dry weight is 167kg (367lbs).

Braking power is at the top of its class thanks to the Nissin two pot sliding calipers with sintered pads (the same material as used on the Daytona 675). Lightweight five-spoked wheels come straight from the Daytona 675; the front measures in at 17 x 3.5in and the rear at 17 x 5.5in. Dunlop Sportmax Qualifier tyres are fitted as standard (120/70 ZR 17 front and 180/55 ZR 17 rear), and approved options are the Pirelli SuperCorsa Pro and the Bridgestone BT014 G.
The Street Triple uses its elder brother’s headlights and has a comprehensive instrument console that shares the same functionality as the Daytona 675 but restyled to fit neatly within the lines of the Street Triple. The low dual seat and new footrests and handlebars provide a comfortable riding position for both rider and pillion without jeopardising the aggressive streetfighter styling of the bike.

The Triumph Street Triple is available in three colour options - Jet Black, Fusion White and Roulette Green.

A full range of Triumph accessories are available for the bike, including a neat, aerodynamic fly screen for wind deflection, an easy-to-fit colour-matched seat cowl for a sleek tail end finish and a sharp belly pan, which protects the engine whilst complementing the naked style. Triumph has collaborated again with Arrow to develop the 3-into-1 Low Boy exhaust system. Available for Closed Circuit Competition use only, the system is manufactured from stainless steel with a carbon fibre end cap and provides performance gains throughout the torque curve culminating in a 6bhp gain coupled with a weight saving of 7kg compared to the standard silencers. Also available is a selection of carbon fibre parts, luggage, gel seat, rear hugger, pillion grab rail and a pair of EC homologated slip-on Arrow silencers.    

The Street Triple has masses of attitude and makes the most sensible rider grin like an idiot. The class leading performance and superb agility are matched with a competitive retail price, making the Street Triple a welcome addition to the Triumph streetfighter family, and a new entry point to Triumph’s range of triples.
