Test Ride: Triumph Street Triple 675 2011
EngineThe Street Triple has taken the Daytona 675 engine which offers a ton of grunt, its liquid-cooled, inline three-cylinder offering 105.00 HP and 50.0 ft.lbs of torque. It’s been said this impressive middleweight Triple has been enough to excite even the truest of sportbike riders, while still working nicely with new riders. Sounds impossible but after riding it through town, then onto some awesome twisty roads, I completely agree. It’s extremely capable and ready to give more, but can happily potter through traffic when needed.
HandlingThe bike’s ergonomics are good, offering a fairly upright riding posture. All the controls work nicely, the clutch action is excellent and gearchange even smoother. Breaks are light and accurate, right up there with the best. The handling feels very responsive and the suspension copes well with the bike’s set up, feeling more like a sports bike than a commuter.
Seat heightAt 5.4” the seat height was ideal for me to put my feet comfortably flat on the floor. The Street Triple’s seat stands at 31.5”; doing a good few hours on this bike wouldn’t be a problem as the seat itself is nicely padded.
WeightWith a wet weight of 416.0 pounds manoeuvring the bike was fairly easy, due to the weight being quite low I was able to lean right over while walking with it. It’s not a high bike standing at 41.7” so you don’t need to worry about it being too top heavy.
QualityValue for money on this bike is impressive. Attention to detail on the switches, exhaust system, brakes set up, handlebars is to quite a high standard. If I was going to be really critical, I’d say the speedo is quite hard to see, especially when the sun is out. It’s a minor thing though and in general, I think the bike feels quality to ride and to look at.
