Rumour : new range of Triumph Street Triples

A bit of history.

20 years ago Triumph introduced the Speed Triple. It was a smash hit. In the meantime the company was going through turbulent time. The company's sportbike division was a mess and the company really didn't have an identifiable, modern product besides the Speed Triple.

For the 2006 MY, Triumph introduced the Daytona 675. A svelte, ultra-modern sportbike that features a three-cylinder motor ... a departure from the four-cylinder motors it had featured in the Daytona 600 and 650.

In 2007, Triumph stripped the Daytona of its fairings, attached a new subframe and built a wonderful naked bike, the Street Triple. The Street Triple has been a smash success for the Hinkley-based manufacturer.

Now, rumours are rampant that Triumph is readying an entirely new range of Street Triples to replace the Street Triple/Street Triple R/Street Triple Rx.

Rumours suggest that the all-new bike will feature a fresh, 800cc three-cylinder engine based on that recently incorporated into the Tiger 800.

Rumours suggest :

-new 800cc engine
-four-model range
-different fairing variations
-TFT clocks, multiple rider modes and rider-aides
-updated styling

First Gen

2013 Triumph Street Triple R
Second Gen

2015 Triumph Street Triple Rx
-note the Daytona 675 subframe mated to the bike

Never been a fan of Triumph bikes but I hope they do something special with this. Theres a market for these types of bikes now, but if they keep the same styling and just offer a different motor I dont see it doing well.

The Street/Speed Triple has always had a market and cult following... but not so much in North America.

The looks and engine are definitely an acquired taste. People either love it or hate it.
It seriously sounds like a sewing machine on steroids.

Yeah I'm not really a huge fan of the headlights, but that's what makes them iconic I guess.

I love the engine though... triples sound badass piped!
