Street Triple RS: 3.97s/129.05m

Performance Bikes (UK) - - THE RUTTER TEST -

The Speed RS is su­perb on the brakes. Any­thing around 100 me­tres to pull up form 100mph to 40mph is very re­spectable. In con­trast, the Street RS sur­prises for the wrong rea­sons: 129 me­tres is pretty poor. A closer look at the brak­ing into Mel­bourne Loop shows the ini­tial stage of the Street RS’s brak­ing to be on a dif­fer­ent tra­jec­tory to the lower part of the line. This is the ABS cut­ting at Rut­ter’s first pull of the lever.
