And that’s about it. Actually, we really like the Street Triple, so by adding the suspension and brakes from the current Daytona 675, Triumph can only make it better. The Triumph Street Triple R gains fully adjustable 41mm USD forks, a fully adjustable piggyback shock and radial brakes that grab 308mm rotors. To differentiate it from the standard model, which will continue to be sold alongside its sportier brother, the R will be available in matte grey with orange graphics, or vice versa. Other changes include the 5mm higher seat and flatter Magura bars for a revised riding position. Visually, the R uses black anodized fork stanchions for added badassness, and a two-tone black and grey seat that adds some much needed poor taste to an otherwise classy bike. The Street Triple R will cost a little more than the bike it’s based on, but a little less than the revised 2009 Triumph Daytona 675. Another image follows the jump.
No, we don't understand why Triumph only issues two press photos of a new model, both shot from the exact same angle and neither terribly good, either.
