Combining aggressive style and devilish good looks to create an extreme, eye-catching machine, the limited-run model borrows inspiration from its TT and Daytona 200-winning supersports sibling, the Daytona 675R. Unique visual features include a new razor-sharp rear profile, a new black paint scheme and revised graphics.

At the heart of the Street Triple Rx Black is Triumph’s signature triple engine. The 675cc, 12-valve unit delivers a punchy 106PS and 68Nm of torque, for effortless acceleration. Harnessing a slick, close-ratio six-speed gearbox, quickshifter and flawless throttle control, the Street’s iconic power plant delivers an exhilarating ride. Heralded by a soulful, characteristic growling exhaust note, the Rx boasts one of the most distinctive sounds in motorcycling.

With an ability to satisfy riders of all levels – from novice to the most experienced thrill-seeker – the expertly crafted riding position spreads rider effort perfectly between its tapered flat bars, sculpted seat and slightly rear-set alloy foot pegs. The refined chassis features an 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. This gives complete freedom to set-up the front end for a wide variety of riding styles and conditions.
