Triumph ’s Street platform is one of our favorite motorcycles of its playfully sporting character appeals to all sorts of riders. In the up-spec R version took our of the Year honors in 2009 . So we learned about an updated for 2013, we were hoping didn’t do anything to diminish its likeable qualities.

Measured by the sum of parts, the 2013 Triumph Triple and Street Triple R are than warmed up 2012 The lauded 675cc inline returns unchanged, but the obvious of its exhaust system is only the tip of the iceberg. From frame to nearly everything besides the powering these … must be preempted with the “new.”

Also contributing to the Street R’s newfound agility is a redesigned constructed from three parts. The new frame decreases the R’s by 0.5˚ (from 23.9˚ to and adds 2.6 mm of trail (from mm to 95mm). There’s also a forward weight bias, last year’s 49% front, 51% to 2013’s 52% front, 48% rear

Steering radius increases 28 degrees to 31 degrees to make it maneuverable in tight spaces. An swingarm pivot is a feature of the R model.

Impressive as all these may sound (and they any rider of novice credentials the Street Triple or Street R shouldn’t feel overwhelmed by the changed geometry.

No ABS models were available our Spanish press intro, so we no insight into their but Triumph’s other ABS models tested flawlessly and we have no to believe the Street Triple’s perform otherwise.

Braking from the R’s four-pot is substantial and easily modulated. The levers attached to our demo stretched the extent of my reach when adjusted to their setting.

Because the rear no longer supports the weight of the Triumph was able to redesign the using new high-pressure …-casting shaves 1.8 pounds of weight. The also allowed for increased room beneath the seat, to conveniently fit a U-lock.
