2010 Triumph Street Triple R
Triumph’s Street Triple R. The
most fun you can have on two wheels. One of the purest
motorcycles on the planet. Voted bike of the year
in the UK’s Bike magazine and many others. It
is a phenomenon.
Taking the standard Street Triple as
its base, Triumph added supersport specification suspension
and brakes, mixed in some premium colour schemes and
charged their outstanding development engineers with
honing the package to perfection. The result? A motorcycle
that has won universal acclaim since its introduction
in 2008 and which it guaranteed to leave the rider
grinning from ear to ear. The Street Triple R.
The Street Triple R’s lightweight
frame has been lifted directly from the awardwinning
Daytona 675 sports bike and comespacked with race
Fully-adjustable 41mm upside down forks
and a top-spec rear monoshock unit with piggy back
reservoir deliver sublime handling, while radially-mounted
four piston calipers grab the twin 308mm brake discs
and ensure the Street Triple R
stops as well as it goes.
At the heart of the Street Triple R
is the same acclaimed, 675cc triple cylinder engine
that powers the Street Triple, so there’s masses
of grunt on tap from low revs through to the redline.
Peak power is a healthy 106PS at 11,700rpm, while
peak torque of 68Nm is delivered at 9,100rpm.
The Street Triple R rivals traditional
supersport machines with its superlative handling
and stunning stopping power, while offering the comfort
and attitude of a streetfighter. The sporty feel is
completed with wide, tapered, handlebars from
Magura and a 5mm taller seat height than the standard
model puts the Street Triple R rider in the perfect
position to attack the twisty stuff or cut its way
through the urban jungle.
The Street Triple R also benefits from
the same updates for 2010 as the Street Triple: lighter
rear wheel and rear sprocket, revised EFI calibration
for smoother throttle response at low speeds and new
instruments for easier operation.
Completing the Street Triple R’s
distinctive look are three distinctive colour options
– Matt Graphite, Matt Orange and gloss Phantom
Black with gold wheels. All colour options come with
anodised black upside down front forks and a twotone
stitched seat, while the ‘R’ can be made
to stand out even further through a comprehensive
range of official Triumph accessories.
