Clos­est ri­val: TRI­UMPH STREET TRIPLE S £8200 OTR

Motorcycle Sport & Leisure - - Launch -

The Street Triple is a fair ri­val to the Yamaha but the money you’ll spend on the triple may put many off. Then again, you do get a much higher spec of sus­pen­sion, brakes and var­i­ous bits and bobs (all of which are ad­justable to give you a vir­tu­ally bespoke mo­tor­cy­cle that suits your needs) and a 765cc en­gine that is sub­lime to use with 110bhp @ 11,250rpm and 73Nm of peak torque @ 9100rpm. The Street also gets a very pretty TFT dig­i­tal screen and ‘mus­cu­lar’ looks. It’s not as ac­com­plished an all-rounder as the Yamaha though.
