You're not the only one with your eyes locked on a Street Triple...
Brash and ballsy, though less so than the 2007 original, the 2013 Street Triple has grown up, with a taller first gear, better fuel economy, more steering lock and a front-end weight bias.
It isn’t trying to be its cool older cousin, the Speed Triple, anymore – but it still has some damn fine genes. The Street’s Daytona 675 engine is quick and eager, its chassis confidence-inspiring and its styling distinctive (cough, headlights, cough).
It’s number one in a field of one, if the field is ‘big, beefy British naked’. But remove the word British, and the field expands. Italy and Japan offer up strong competition in an intriguing range of shades, and if your head tends to battle with your heart, best read this before you dash off to a dealer.
Engine: 675cc triple
Weight: 182 kg wet

We did consider the Hornet as the do-it-all four-cylinder option but wanted to keep the number of bikes down, so when pressed, we'd go for the GSR750 as it has Street Triple rivalling torque. Fair?
