2013 Triumph Street : MD Ride Review

Having reviewed two retro-style standards, the Triumph Bonneville and Moto V7 Stone. it was an interesting contrast to hop one of the most thoroughly modern motorcycles currently available, the 2013 Triumph Street .

The new bike is lighter with steering geometry, and it has improved centralization, largely due to the new muffler (the old bike had underseat  The engine is essentially but that can hardly be a point of given the universal praise on this 675cc triple by the and owners alike.

As you will see we found an awful lot of things to about the new Street Triple, but its low in particular, deserves some analysis.  For 2013, an new frame and swingarm saved 3 the new low-slung exhaust saves 7.9 and the rear wheel another 2  All together, Triumph a roughly 13 pound reduction in versus comparable 2012

 The two models are the standard Triple (the model we and the Street Triple R.  The R retails for $9,999 ($600.00 than the standard model) and a fully adjustable fork, shock with adjustable and rebound damping, anti-lock and radial mount, four-piston brake calipers.

This is an lightweight motorcycle given its performance.  Think about  Our test bike has a wet (fully fueled) weight of 400

 Given equivalent gas loads, is nearly 40 pounds lighter Ducati’s new Hypermotard!  Indeed, it is than several single-cylinder  One reason is that the is derived from the Daytona a sport bike that it out with Japanese 600s in a low weight.

The standard model has which is non-adjustable except for shock spring preload.  It has simpler, two-piston brake up front and has optional ABS in most (apparently, all US models will ABS).

Riding the new Street feels like piloting a bike on steroids.  The low is quite evident, as is the low inertia associated the light crank and other internals.  With 105 hp at the crank, lithe machine has nearly the power of a modern 450cc bike, for instance.

It is the way that power is delivered, that makes the Street so special.  When you hear drone on and on about this including its huge powerband and sound, don’t discount it. engine is the real deal.


The intake and exhaust by themselves are worth the price of but the surprising thrust delivered low in the rev range combined with a and powerful high-end shriek the deal.

The new chassis combines a nimble feeling and very high speed stability. the old Street Triple could get a twitchy, the new steering geometry increased trail) seems to that without taking from the entertainment value. seating position is comfortable, and the height is reasonable even for short riders.

 The bar position has you leaning into the wind.

The brakes on the Street Triple are adequate, but on both power and feel compared with modern machinery.  Presumably, the uprated brakes on the Street Triple R this criticism.  While the shock with one click of seemed just about the non-adjustable front fork benefit from quicker

 This made for a somewhat ride over bad pavement.

The six-speed transmission and clutch flawlessly during our test, and the ratios seemed to complement the performance.

Instrumentation is both and useful, including digital fuel gauge, trip analogue tach, lap timer, position indicator,  etc.

Years a large number of experienced fell in love with an lightweight standard motorcycle. the SV650.  It was a relatively unassuming that made you grin inside your helmet more often than other bikes.  It delivered the of motorcycling  in an unfiltered manner. 2013 Street Triple this  a couple steps

 It feels even lighter and nimble than the old SV with more engine performance and  At $9,399, the 2013 Triumph Triple is a bargain, but its $600 expensive sibling, the Street R, is arguably more so with its suspension and brakes.  For details and specifications visit web site .
