For 2012, the Street Triple R has been further enhanced
with a new look and a host of detail changes that
improve this already outstanding motorcycle.
Based on the standard Street Triple, the harder-edged
R version adds fully-adjustable supersport specification
suspension and premium graphics and colour schemes
to really make it stand out from the crowd.
Highly regarded for its light and intuitive handling,
the Street Triple R features 41mm inverted front forks
which are adjustable for preload, rebound and compression
damping to give the expert rider freedom to set the
motorcycle up for their specific needs. The rear monoshock
is an equally high quality item, adjustable for preload
and rebound damping, while the twin 308mm floating
front discs are mated to powerful four-piston Nissin
radial calipers for eye popping stopping power.
With a wet weight of just 189kg and a 106PS at its
disposal, the Street Triple R provides a lively yet
surprisingly composed ride that will surprise more
than a few race replicas on a twisting road or race
track. Since its introduction for 2009, the Street
Triple R has received numerous accolades, including
‘Bike of the Year’ awards from Bike magazine
in the UK and Moto Navi of Japan.
The Street Triple R’s high equipment level
includes lightweight five-spoke alloy wheels from
the Daytona 675, fat alloy Magura handlebars, a stylish
two-tone seat unit and a comprehensive instrumentation
includes a built in lap timer, programmable gear change
lights, clock and gear indicator, as well as a large
tachometer and digital speedo.
New style headlights, the same aggressive design
used on the bigger Speed Triple, and twin high level
silencers dominate the styling, with a number of detail
improvements being brought in for 2012, including
new mesh headstock infill panels, brushed finishes
on the silencers and Triumph branding on the clutch
and alternator covers.
Three colour options are available on the 2012 Street
Triple R: Crystal White, Diablo Red and Phantom Black
(with gold wheels), with all colours featuring new
graphics, including the Triumph sports script on the
Triumph’s range of genuine accessories are
hugely popular with Street Triple R owners.
Colour matched flyscreens, belly pans and seat cowls
give the bike a more sporting and aggressive look,
while Arrow Special Parts have developed both a three-into-one
‘low boy’ exhaust system and lightweight
slip-on silencers for improved performance and a weight
reduction. Other key accessories include CNC machined
clutch and brake levers and a ‘plug and play’
quickshifter that can be fitted to the Street Triple
R in minutes.
