The last part of the test with the Triumph Street Triple It only has one bad thing: that like everything good ends. Not only is it a motorcycle that works well, smooth, with sporting aptitudes and concessions to tourism, but it is also beautiful (although for tastes there are the colors).
The jump with respect to the previous generation is based on small modifications that are hardly noticeable but that make the Street Triple from being a good bike to an even better bike. You have to give a vote of confidence to the changes because you may not like the exhaust at the bottom (one of the most important changes), I was not convinced at first, but it does not out of tune, it contributes to the best performance and it sounds great.
We did not talk on Wednesday about the consumption that we could get from the British and, although they could be better, they are not bad at all. Keep in mind that it is a model that asks you to go, you cannot be still, it is very playful because of its geometries and the engine likes to give you joy, so an average consumption of 5.2 liters per 100 kilometers is within of the average. If we are soft and we drive quietly alone, without going too far through urban centers, it is easy to lose five liters.
Priced for the Triumph Street Triple with ABS that touches 8,000 euros It is an option to take into account for those who want a motorcycle to use every day and who on weekends want to put on the leather suit and go out on a good curvy road or make forays into the circuit. It's just as good for mounting tourist tires as it is for wasting your money on sticky double compound to scoop pellets from the sidewalls.
In case the use that I gave to the motorcycle was usually accompanied, I would look at other options that would be more gratifying to the passenger, but since I am not one of those who ride a duet on a regular basis, I would seriously consider the Triumph Street Triple as an option for their high doses of versatility and fun. Maybe I did save a little more to get the R version and go on regular circuit excursions. It's not that they can't be done with this one, but I missed a bit of a more sporty feel while rolling on the attack.
If you are one of those new holders of the A2 card, you will not miss anything, but if you already have a long experience on motorcycles, you may miss that little final kick that does have the Street Triple R when we approach the red line or the firmer suspensions and brakes with more biting. Anyway, we go back to business as usual, as long as you know what you want and it fits with your requirements, you will not regret it unless you use it improperly, it is a very grateful motorcycle capable of filling you with satisfaction.
