On 15th April 2016 two xBhpians embarked on an India roadtrip on Triumph Motorcycles in search of #100Motorcycles which were unique iconic and rare by searching for them on OLX and the community at large. Motul Lubricants and CEAT Tyres powered their journey along with Wrangler Denims adding to the style quotient. We hope that this will paint a picture of India as a diverse and rich motorcycling nation in the times to come. Know More

When the Street Triple was launched in late 2007, we knew it would be the top motorcycle in its class. How? Well, the Street Triple is the naked version of the Daytona 675 which, when it came out a year before, went on to become the best Supersport.

Sharing the same chassis and suspension as the Daytona, the Street Triple is a remarkable handler and is hugely impressive on the streets as well as on a race track. Due to its Supersport genes, it is thin and overall extremely compact making it one of the most enjoyable and fun motorcycles to ride around.

The inline 3, 675cc, liquid cooled, DOHC, 12-valve engine is the same unit which powers the Daytona, however, in the Street Triple, it makes less power and is tuned so that it is easier to ride in the city. It does not rev as high as its full-faired brethren and it is not meant to be. The exhaust note is gentle, but give it a stick and it will generate an ear-pleasing howl past 6000 RPM.

One of the most interesting aspects of the design of the Street Triple is that while it is based on the Daytona 675, certain things were designed to make it look like the smaller version of the Speed Triple. It had high-mounted exhausts, almost under seat and one on each side, just like the Speed Triple. The headlight also had two round headlamps that again completely resembled the front of the Speed Triple.

Since then, the Street Triple has gone through regular improvements and has got similar upgrades as that of the Daytona 675, like the small, side-mounted exhaust and the updated styling. In prominent international markets, the Tripe’s engine produces 106 PS at 11,850 RPM and 68 NM of torque at 9,750 RPM. Unfortunately, in India, these figures are drastically lower at 79.3 PS at 11,054 RPM and 57.3 NM at 8,375 RPM.

Triumph had a tough time explaining this to motorcycle enthusiasts in India when they learned that the Street Triple we are getting is highly detuned. Nonetheless, it remains one of the best motorcycles in its category and at its price to buy in India.
