2013 Triumph Street Triple R in Matt Graphite

TRIUMPH have revealed the price of their new Street Triple and Street Triple R.

The Street Triple will be priced at £6,999 OTR while the Street Triple R will cost £7,699 OTR. These prices are up by £100 on the existing models.

Both bikes have been heavily revised, with Triumph keen to stress that these are new models and not just tweaked versions of the current bike. The new Street Triple is 6kg lighter than the outgoing model, with most of the weight saving coming from the rear of the bike, including 3.6kg from the exhaust system alone. The fuel consumption has also been improved by a claimed 30% in urban conditions and by 12% at 60mph. The new bike also features a taller first gear, introduced to make the bike easier around town.

The Street Triple will be available in the following colours: Phantom Black, Caribbean Blue and Crystal White. The Street Triple R will be available in Matt Graphite, Crystal White and Phantom Black.

Both the Street Triple and the R version are also due to have optional ABS, which will cost £350 extra.

The new bikes will be available in dealers in mid-November with the ABS version expected to be released before the end of the year.

We're riding the bike tomorrow, so check back for our full review.

Sorry to say I don't like the looks. They've even cocked up the classic Triumph logo.

Overall the looks are good. It wins the ugliest exhaust award though.

Eh. Looks like an ER6-n, Gladius, XJ600...

I hate those bloody Transformers exhausts. If the Japs rode their bikes off a cliff, would you do it too, Triumph?

cant wait to test ride this new model. i dont mind the looks - they have never disappointed when out on tarmac.

Yeah, I don't care one way or the other how it looks. OTOH, not sure it needed much enhancing, other than maybe a magic, weight-penalty free 33% torque increase throughout the range for even easier wheelies.

Would have been happier with a £500 price cut and lower final-drive gearing for added hoonery, TBH. In fact, I suspect if they kept it as-is, cut the price and increased their production, the Japanese wouldn't sell a single naked middleweight.

Bought my "R" August 2009 £6,250 new, seems good value looking at the prices now, can't imagine the road tests will show much old/new difference but a brilliant bike and after 3 years I still have no intention of selling.

Had a "R" out as a demo when my 1050 ST was being serviced,loved every minute of it,perfect in every way for anyone who dosn't do pillion work.Why oh why could Trumpet not have developed the excellent ST with USD forks the new Speed Triple lump and a side exhaust for some underseat storage....that would have kept it alive for another year or 3. Just left with the GT barge now (with the worlds worst looking exhaust)Any news on the Tiger 1050 Sport which was pictured testing back in the spring...now that could really work.

I actually prefer it to the old one, but I am a fan of cleaner lines. Can't please everyone I suppose.

The logo does not sit well on the tank going off the picture.

The logo and the red looks cheap. They should also include the freakin windscreen it looks ridiculous without it. That said removing 6kg from previous version is impressive, and I can only imagine with the exhaust being down low will make an already amazing handling bike even better.

Cool that they improved mpg too. They'll certainly sell another bucket load of these. But please triump get your logo together, don't fall for the cheap look when you have such a sexy bike in your hands.

I'm going to buy one. I think they've improved the looks, but then again I have always preferred cleaner lines.

Posted: 02/11/2012 at 13:11

Oh look it comes in Ducati Monster colours, how original...

Posted: 03/11/2012 at 08:09

Ugly and poor colours. Just my opinion mind.
