TRIUMPH PUTS THE ENGLISH PEDAL TO THE METAL, MATE
Street life doesn’t get more stimulating than this. The Street Triple Rx combines aggressive style and devilish good looks to create an extreme, eye-catching machine, borrowing inspiration from its TT and Daytona 200 winning supersport sibling, the Daytona 675R.
I’ve had 6 Triumphs and all have been mighty-mighty. Next to Harley, Triumph’s wheels stoke my spokes the best. The crisp lines of the Street Triple RX accented by the new Matt Silver paint and deep Diablo Red details, complimented by the striking hand painted finish on the front and rear lightweight race inspired wheels make this a dish ready to serve, now, let’s go, come on, jeez. Triumph’s seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen complete the sweet aesthetics.
Its 675cc, 12-valve engine is derived from the legendary Triumph Daytona 675 sportsbike, but is carefully retuned to deliver a punchy 106PS and magnificently linear 68Nm of torque for effortless drive and acceleration. Combined with a slick, close-ratio six-speed gearbox, Triumph’s quickshifter and flawless throttle control, the powerplant delivers a powerful mofo ride, accompanied by a soulful, characteristic growling exhaust note, one of the most distinctive and charismatic sounds in motorcyclin’.
The new Street Triple Rx will be available in dealerships February 2015 and will be priced at $11,199. As with all Triumphs, the Street Triple Rx comes with an unlimited mileage, two year factory warranty. Service intervals are every 6000 miles, or one year, whichever comes first.
I’ll see if I can lay paws on one and tell you all about it, fab readers.
