Triumph Street Triple 675

Coming Soon, not sure anyone saw this article...



When Triumph released the Daytona 675 we couldn't wait to get our grubby mitts on the Triple-powered Supersport entry from the British manufacturer. Our eager anticipation was matched by the Trumpet's masterful performance, which earned it top honors in our 2006 Supersport Shootout IV as well as our pick for Best New Streetbike of 2006. Now we have yet another entry from the British marque to crave based off the successful 675 platform, the Triumph Street Triple.

Sporting the distinctive dual lamps up front, the Street Triple is an amalgam of the Triumph Speed Triple and Daytona 675. Triumph's distinctive Triple powerplant is prominent in the naked design. Sourced from the Daytona 675 we can't wait to see what this motor does inside the Street Triple as we described the 675's engine as "a lusty motor that embarrasses its rivals whether in terms of available power or its howling crescendo of sound."

It looks good, figures to be an able performer and the price will be right for many. Although it is derived from the Daytona, reports place the new Street's MSRP on American soil at $7,999 (the Daytona 675 is priced at $8,999). Triumph is on a roll with their standout 675 and there's no doubt this new mid-sized street-fighter entry will pique the interest of many. We know we can't wait for an opportunity to sample its tire-shredding abilities.

Further information about the Street Triple will be revealed after it makes its official debut in Europe before Triumph customers at Triumph Tridays in Neukirch, Austria, on June 30th. The new Trumpet will make its stateside debut at the Laguna Seca USGP July 20-22. Interested readers can sign up for the latest information about the new Triple at www.triumphstreettriple.com.

Honda needs to import the new Hornet 600 (as well as the upcoming 1000) to the U.S. before it loses all ground in the naked category.

I'm in the market for a new bike and while I really like Honda's bikes, the Triumphs are looking pretty good.

Why can't an American company do something this nice?

I like a lot of Triumph models. This one doesn't do anything for me.

If the American motorcycle company is selling 80 year old ideas for $30,000, why should they change? I kinda like the BMW K1200R. I was amazed to find that it's $17 large, like maybe too much for my next bike.Then I wondered how much all technology would cost, if it came from home?

Here's an American sportbike for $40,000.

Probably a slew of stuff still comes from overseas though.

I wish the new nakeds would remain comfortable for 2-up riding, but it seems that characteristic will no longer be standard. I won't be surprised if they all eventually become pure sports tuned, just without the bodywork.

I do like the looks of this bike, though.
