This week I’ve tried the Triumph Street Triple R ABS, the bike naked from manufacturer of Hinckley that you already advance that it surprises by its power, components and response.”R version” of the Triumph Street Triple is a warning to sailors of came at the end of last year to position itself as a reference between the naked bikes.
Triumph Street Triple R ABS methodically city and Highway Test
during one week and more than 1,000 kilometers from one of its flagships in the naked bikes segment. The first impression is good, very good, the naked, I like your “pros” and “cons”. The Street Triple R is presented with a red, and Matt grey finish that already denoted by its appearance, about what we are going to go up.
Angular lines, plain front, two headlights with more oval, that the ancient and traditional round and an exhaust Arrow, that nothing more starting, will draw you a lightweight and malicious smile. As you can see in the photographs by the professional photographer, Jose Ramón Moreno, this Triumph bike attracts nothing but see it.
Triumph Street Triple R ABS in City Review
We are moving towards the Center of Madrid and to your “nice” mid-morning traffic. The first thing to note is his silent and effective change of gears, you may have to see that our unit mounted Quick shifter change, which do not need to use the clutch to raise and lower gears. Although in city it is hardly useful, in area of curves, as you notice, that it is a true joy. By the way, it is an extra and not comes standard.
In this model of Triumph, first gear is long, so use in city lets you go no pending change as often as in other models. Outputs from standing, are clean and fast, without hitches and maintaining the progressiveness of its engine tricilyndrico from very few turns. Welcomed for use in town.
Driving position derived from a “R”, although its wide handlebar and most studied and most advanced ergonomics makes it a lot easier and less demanding. With 1.70 tall, will take you comfortably to the ground with both feet and move it standing, is not complicated, but the angle of rotation is reduced, but we must remember that it is an “R”version
Instrumentation box offers you all the necessary information for the day to day and for those seeking to use it in circuit, too. Running a full LCD speedometer, fuel level, geared, tachometer, clock, etc… and a lap timer, if you venture to the circuit with her. A detailed study by the engineers of Hinckley, is the location of the kickstand, which is just below the footrest and change and that becomes cumbersome to remove it.
The unit I tested was riding the ABS system I’ve tested in all its scope, due to complicated weather conditions. Braking in city is fast, efficient and progressive thanks to a pair of pliers Nissin’s 4-piston and radial-mount front. With a simple finger you restrain the Triumph Street Triple R, offering a slight lapse in handle that quickly disappears at the beginning and holding back this bike naked in few meters. The rear brake works correctly, although I must say, I’m very little use the rear brake.
Triumph Street Triple R ABS – test on Highway
We are moving the Triumph Street Triple R ABS and which subscribes to our destination, towards Levantine land with 350 miles of boring and bland Highway, although it was quite wrong, trip, was not all “boring”. As a travel companion, a storm that is complete in all our beloved Spain, so armed with patience and a good water monkey, we headed south.
The test unit came equipped with a dome, which helps support the force of the wind. The driving position is comfortable, although passing the miles, the overload in the area of wrists, had to get. Your position, as I said before, is derived from “R” Although sweetened.
Suspensions, tough series, bring security and any defect in the asphalt, sensation, which personally I like since I like to know on which floor. With a 41 mm fully adjustable upside-down fork Kayaba, the sensations offered by the bike are clean and without concessions. In the rear mounted a shock absorber which also meets to perfection, at least in solitary.
The black clouds of the storm met its threats and many kilometers I had to endure a barrage of water and hail as had that not seen for years. Brakes and ABS were so outstanding in these complicated driving conditions and which took me “to fruition”, a petrol station, safe and sound. In town, the situation became repeat, obtaining the same result of the complete team of brakes.
It is a bike naked, powerful and with a protection against the wind, almost non-existent, but that in areas of the legs does not suffer the stakes of this aggressively. After complicated more than 350 kilometers, the feelings are more than positive of this, especially your engine model tricilyndrico, from its delivery of power and its components.
After leaving the boots, gloves and helmet to dry for a couple of days, I could perform the test in area of curves, but we leave that to the second part of the test of the Triumph Street Triple R ABS.
