Earlier this week, Triumph announced a new, higher-specification version of their Street Triple - the 2009 Street Triple R. The R adds a swag of attitude and in Triumph's own words "is not a bike for shrinking violets..."

The new Street Triple R is packed with race track technology. Fully-adjustable 41mm USD forks and a top-spec rear monoshock unit with piggy back reservoir deliver on the handling front, while radially mounted four-piston calipers and twin 308mm brake discs help to keep R riders out of the bushes.

At the heart of Street Triple R is the Street Triple's fuel-injected 675cc three-cylinder engine, producing 108ps at 11,700rpm. The R's fully adjustable sports suspension and powerful four-piston radial brakes are derived from Triumph's Daytona 675.


Triumph has designed the Street Triple R to rival traditional Supersport machines in performance while offering the comfort and attitude of a streetfighter.

The sporty feel is completed with wide, tapered aluminium handlebars from Magura and a 5mm taller seat height that puts the Street Triple R rider in the perfect position to attack winding mountain passes and keep out of trouble on city streets.

The result is a motorcycle that can be finely tuned for all road and track conditions, offering a plush ride tailored to the individual rider, while bearing more than a passing resemblance to its bigger brother, the Speed Triple.

The Street Triple R is available in two all-new exclusive colour schemes: Matt Graphite with orange graphics and Matt Blazing Orange with grey graphics. Both colour options are further enhanced by black anodised forks and a two-tone black and graphite seat.

Australian pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
