The first Street Triple took a short run-up at the mid­dleweight road­ster uni­verse and cleared the lot in a sin­gle bound. Its strong ties to the Day­tona 675 im­bued it with a light alu­minium frame and sharp ge­om­e­try, so its chas­sis ran rings round the op­po­si­tion, plus it had one of the best-bal­anced road­go­ing mo­tors ever made. But not happy with all that, a year later Tri­umph cre­ated what they’d wanted to from the start: a posher R ver­sion that’s closer to an au­then­tic Day­tona street­fighter, with fully ad­justable sus­pen­sion, quicker steer­ing and stronger four-pis­ton front brakes. A well-kept R will still feel ra­zor-sharp and enor­mous fun.
