We have created the ultimate in finely honed, thrilling supersport performance packaged in a stunning streetfighter style, with our Street Triple R.
To start with, there was no better bike than our Street Triple to base it on. It already had the advantage with a class leading engine and awesome, focussed looks.
For the Street Triple R we've added high-end adjustable suspension and radially-mounted four-piston brakes, sharpened the geometry and given it a few visual tweaks that tell you this bike is different.
Nothing else comes close to the Street Triple R.
Standard Features May Include:Engine
Today’s three cylinder is smoother, revvier and more powerful than a twin but has the individuality and soundtrack that no four can come close to. As always, the torque curve on the Street Triple R is exhilarating from low revs to high. Staying above 43lb.ft from 3,000rpm right up to 12,500rpm so you can pull hard and instantly whatever the rev counter is showing. And, with a maximum of 106PS and less weight than ever before, there’s enough for the odd thrilling track day.Exhaust
Undoubtedly the most obvious change for the Street Triple R is the exhaust. Now tucked tight beneath the engine it gives the tail end a lean, more modern look and lowers the centre of gravity for even better handling.Sound
The sound is now even better than before with the new intake path through the frame turning up volume for an even snarlier, more engaging sound than ever. Making the Street Triple R one of the most exciting motorcycles on the road today.Frame
The geometry is sharper than the Street Triple's with a 0.7 degree steeper rake angle at 23.4 degrees and 4.6mm less trail at 95mm, designed to give the R even more responsive handling.Suspension
A chassis as good as the Street Triple R’s needs suspension to match, so it comes with KYB 41mm upside down forks with adjustable preload, rebound and compression damping, and a rear monoshock with piggy back reservoir adjustable for rebound and compression damping.Handling
By making Street Triple R 6kg lighter with a 3 per cent increase in weight distribution over the front, now at 52 per cent, and with its mass more centralised, the Street Triple R is now more agile and responsive than ever. The overall design gives you the stability and confidence for an incredible riding experience.Brakes
We’ve uprated the brakes on the R with a pair of radially-mounted, four-piston Nissin callipers up front to give you exceptional braking force with almost telepathic feedback.Wheels and Tires
The latest Street Triple R gets lighter wheels for a lot of reasons. Reduced gyroscopic forces make the steering faster and more tactile, you get better response on poor surfaces, it gives the suspension an easier time, which improves grip, and with less weight to accelerate and slow down the overall performance of the bike is improved too. R versions feature a red pinstripe detail.Riding Position
With the Street Triple R you get a different set up to the standard model for more focused supersport performance.
While the bars, seat and footrests are in the same relative positions, the seat is 20mm higher at 820mm so you sit slightly further forward over the front end.
Even though it’s a more road-friendly set-up than a full-on supersport bike, we’ve made it upright enough for natural and easy town riding but with a sufficiently aggressive stance for pushing the chassis to its limits.
