2009 Triumph Street Triple R

Following on from the phenomenally successful Street Triple, Triumph is introducing a new, higher-specification version, for 2009 – the Street Triple R.

With the Street Triple already regarded as the class-leading middleweight streetfighter, the ‘R’ version takes the standard bike and adds a whole heap of attitude. The Street Triple R is not a bike for shrinking violets…
The new Street Triple R comes brimming with race track technology. Fully-adjustable 41mm upside down forks and a topspec 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 Street Triple R is the Street Triple’s highly-acclaimed fuel injected 675cc three-cylinder unit, producing 108PS at 11,700rpm, while its fully adjustable sports suspension and powerful four-piston radial brakes are derived from the award-winning Daytona 675. The new Street Triple R has been designed to rival 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 that puts the Street Triple R rider in the perfect position to attack the twisty stuff or cut its way through the urban jungle.

The result is a motorcycle that can be finely tuned for all road and track conditions, offering a plush ride tailored to the individual rider, while bearing more than a passing resemblance to its famous brother, Triumph’s mighty Speed Triple.

Completing the Street Triple R’s distinctive look is an all-new colour scheme of Matt Graphite with orange graphics. A Matt Blazing Orange option with grey graphics will also be available from early 2009. Both colour options are further enhanced by black anodised forks and a two-tone black and graphite seat.

A full range of Triumph accessories are available for the bike, including practical and stylish flyscreens and a range of performance exhaust systems developed in collaboration with Italian performance specialists Arrow Special Parts
