A Special edition version of the Triumph Street Triple R, the RX will cost £8549 and features a red rear subframe courtesy of the Daytona 675. Diablo Red wheels, special decals, seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen combine with a race-inspired quickshifter as standard.
The 675cc inline three-cylinder engine makes 105bhp and 50lb-ft of torque in a twin beam aluminium frame. Here are the full details from Triumph…
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 superports sibling, the Daytona 675R.
The highest-spec variant Triumph’s Street Triple R, its unique visual features include a new razor-sharp rear profile, a new Aluminium Silver paint scheme and revised graphics.
The angular seat unit is transplanted from the Daytona, further emphasizing the Street Triple’s already aggressive stance. The crisp lines are 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. Triumph’s seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen complete the aesthetics to round off the purposeful intent of the Rx.
At the heart of the Street Triple RX is Triumph’s signature triple engine. The 675cc, 12-valve unit 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 an exhilarating ride. All accompanied by a soulful, characteristic growling exhaust note, one of the most distinctive and charismatic sounds in motorcycling.
The Street Triple Rx’s ability to satisfy anyone from novice rider to the most experienced thrill-seeker doesn’t just come from its engine. The expertly crafted riding position spreads rider effort perfectly between its tapered flat bars, sculpted seat and slightly rear-set alloy footpegs, delivering maximum comfort and control. The refined chassis and dynamic balance features a distinctive eight-piece, aluminium twin spar frame and two-piece die cast rear subframe, mated to 41mm KYB inverted front forks fully adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping, giving complete freedom to set the front end up to suit riding styles and conditions, and that can be easily configured to suit track or road riding.
Braking from twin 310mm floating discs is assisted by a sophisticated, standard-fitment anti-lock brake system, with the option to be switched off if required. A low-slung stainless steel exhaust minimises the effect of the already minimal weight. And, together with a painstakingly calibrated chassis geometry, the Street Triple Rx exudes a flowing, natural confidence in its handling, providing both stability and agility whatever the road speed or riding conditions.
Although one of the Street Triple Rx’s strengths is its elegant simplicity and practicality, it comes with a high level of equipment as standard. This includes an engine immobilizer, while further security can be found via a Triumph D lock accessory that stows under the seat.
Comprehensive LCD digital instrumentation includes a built-in lap timer, programmable gear shift lights, fuel gauge, clock and gear position indicator, as well as a large, clear tachometer and digital speedo. The clocks can also display front and rear tyre pressures when the optional Triumph Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is fitted.
The Street Triple Rx fuses the style and attitude of a naked streetbike with the handling and performance of a sportsbike, with beautiful styling to complete the package. An extensive range of Triumph genuine accessories allow owners to further personalise their bike.
The new Street Triple Rx will be available in dealerships from January 2015. Prices are yet to be confirmed. 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 is soonest.
