2013 Triumph Street R – First Ride How does overhaul its best-selling bike? carefully.

Almería, Spain the hotel parking lot at walking I stalled the Street Triple R and it over on its right side, a new record but at least a good way to end the early. Not to worry; my lovely gear broke the bike’s nicely, and the only injury was a scrapage to its exhaust tip. The 13 it’s supposedly lost the Triple appear to be easy to up as my attendants scrambled into while I applied the verbal for allowing me to fall over in the place.

The previous Street Triple just 395 pounds, no gas, on our so the new one should be right around That’s really light—like 36 lighter than the Ducati 848 that recently stole its in my heart. Atop the same 55.5-inch wheelbase as before inches shorter than the your first impression is this is one small motorcycle. Or that’s your second

Your first one as you eyeball it in the lobby is that it’s a put-together, beautifully finished you wouldn’t mind shelling out for. But Triumph’s cheating a at this launch, because bike on hand is wearing parts you’ll pay extra for they’re all wearing neat LED turnsignals that are illegal in the old USA) .

Somebody must’ve noticed how nicer the bike looks the accessory flyscreen (it hides the some find unattractive), and that why not add the color-matched chin My bike also had accessory levers, billet brake reservoirs, quickshifter, optional exhaust and crash protectors. The item is the only one I really

Anyway, 50,000 units in the five years since the Triple’s birth makes it the Triumph worldwide, and the new model not to mess with success too The biggest difference is replacing the exhaust with the current GP-style unit, which off about 8 of those 13 pounds, and they were at it the engineers they could get the bike to better by shifting even weight from the rear: the new subframe, a lighter rear and brake caliper, and a new swingarm also about a pound All together, Triumph says the new has 52 percent of its weight on the front Diablo Rosso Corsa patch,

compared to 49 percent before.

The R model gets a three-way piggyback-reservoir shock. It’s 10mm longer than the bike’s and provides 10mm wheel travel (135mm), is also why its seat is 0.8-inch and its rake a tad steeper. It’s why Triumph gave all the Triples an swingarm pivot; the R’s pivot is 4mm

Just like before, the R gets the four-piston radial-mount calipers up front instead of the bike’s two-piston floaters, and like before they’re too powerful in their initial when many times all you is a tiny nibble. What’s new year is standard ABS for both in the U.S. market, controlled by a new regulator that weighs 3.3 pounds. Full credit to for providing this important feature at only a $400 over last year’s R (the regular Triple from $8899 to $9399).

There have been a few in the engine compartment: First is a bit taller, and Triumph says the fuel injection has made the 30 percent less thirsty in use. (Our ’12 model got 41 mpg in use.) The EFI tune also a “kicker” function for reduced braking that works enough to make people the bike has a slipper clutch.
