    Triumph - Street Triple


    http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/bi.../?&R=EPI-94728


    Triumph Street Triple : News & Reports : Motoring : Web Wombat



    OK so it seems to be getting good reviews, I think it looks like sex, the price is right and seems to be an ideal step up from a 250.

    So is there anything I should be wary of with the street triple? I was wondering more so what the reliability and servicing is like on triumphs as this will be a daily rider and clock 35,000 kms per year.

    I was down at the dealers on saturday to look at a Tiger, bit couldnt resist a sit on one of these. They look awesome in white! It has the same engine as the Tiger and since ive been researching i've heard heaps of praise for Triumph - the 3 cyl engine is supposed to be a screamer

    I was a bit dubious about build quality being a pommie machine 'n that, but i haven't read anything bad about the newer bikes. Not bad price either - 17.5 k on the road??

      the street triple has the 675cc engine not the 1050 engine as found in the speed triple. Looks the goods though

            Have they arrived in Oz yet? I didn't think they were due until next year, and then probably a few months for one to make its way across the country to little old Perth.

            They do look amazing and have only heard good things about them. I must admit that I could be tempted although I don't like any of the colours particularly. What is this obsession with white at the moment? - yuk

              I wont be buying till around june next year

              But I don't want to get carried away only to find out they have poor reliability and poor maintenance costs.

                Price seems real good, especially for a bike that looks that wild. I almost bought a Triumph Bonneville America instead of my current Kwaka, so I'd be interested to hear about the reliability and servicing issues with the brand.

                  it's a new bike and a new engine.. only time will tell... but so far, 11,000km later and my 675 hasn't skipped a beat. I would assume any/most major issues they found with the 675 would've been rectified in the Street Triple. But who knows.

                  Check out: Triumph675.net

                  This'd be your best resource for problems, reviews etc etc on the Street Triple.

                        Speed Triple is king, all the torque in the world and an exhaust note that sounds like a dive bomber......... I'm a little biased though.

                        The street triple engine is pretty much identical to the Daytona 675 which I believe is a gem. Ask any of the owners out there and they'll agree.

                        Imho the current Triumph engine's have come a long way and are pretty much bulletproof and great fun in to boot.

                        Go for it dude.

                          Pretty cheap, 10k was $230 from memory... And I think the 1000km was around $130 or so... I'd have to check out the receipts... But yeah, not too bad

                          PS: dooooo it check out youTube, lotso nice Street Triple vids on there

                            Street Triple Storms To Victory In Middleweight Comparo

                            Triumph's all-new Street Triple has already made its opposition seem like "relics" - that's the official word according to British weekly magazine MCN.
                            In the first comparison test of the Street Triple against its middleweight brethren, the Street Triple was in a class of its own, storming to an emphatic win over the Suzuki GSR600, Kawasaki Z750, Yamaha FZ6 S2, Honda CB600F Hornet and Ducati S2R.
                            Here are a couple of quotes from the article in MCN:
                            The opening statement
                            "Triumph's new Street Triple is so ahead of the game it makes its naked middleweight rivals look like they're not trying."
                            The engine
                            "The triple lump has everything you need from an engine for this kind of bike, whether you're a new rider, do lots of town riding or you want to have fun out on the open road."
                            "You need the low and mid-range power of the Triumph... for normal road riding, and none of the Jap bikes have anywhere near enough..."
                            The styling
                            "...with its Speed Triple look-alike styling it's hard to disagree that the Triumph really does look something special when you compare it to the Japanese competition."
                            The verdict
                            "What more can we say about the Street Triple? It's light, fun, fast, agile, sounds great, stylish, cool and cheap too. Overnight, it has made its rivals seem like relics."
                            "The Triumph isn't just the best of its category of machine, it's good enough to tempt all but the most performance-obsessed of us away from our Supersport machines."
                            The Street Triple, which combines the DNA of its older brother, the Speed Triple, with the 675cc engine, chassis and performance of the award-winning Daytona 675, dominated the performance testing in the six-bike comparo, easily coming out on top in the standing quarter mile, 0-60mph, 0-100mph, top gear roll on and top speed segments.
                            In the top gear roll on, the Street Triple's awesome midrange saw it go from 40-110mph (64-177kmh) in 12.85 seconds, just ahead of the S2R (13.02), and well in front of the four cylinder machines - the CB600F (16.0), Z750 (16.7), GSR600 (17.0) and FZ6 S2 (19.7).
                            The Street Triple goes on sale in December for $11,990 (plus ORC). For more information, or to organise a test ride, please contact your local Triumph dealer.

                              Awesome, I just was worried about the cost of maintenance compared to the jap four.
