i drove to newcastle last week to pick up the Street Triple R, saw it on bikesales & i already had my R1 for sale but after seeing this one i went & sold the R1 to a dealer cheap so i could snap up this streety, it is a 2010 model built late '09, got full Arrow exhaust & tune uploaded by dealer, bellypan, seat cowl, headlight fairing, tail tidy, only 5400 kays on it !!
has a brand new pirelli diablo rosso on the rear & had a fukd original Dunlop on the front so today i got a rosso II on the front & it feels so much better !!
set up the front sag & just bought a C spanner to do the rear today , adjusted all rebound / comps as per the book for Standard & then today went 1 click in on all adjusters which made it even better.
well i thought the R1 handled well, after riding the triumph today & i am sure i would be quicker on it than the R1, the handling of these things is truly amazing !! so much feel for what bike is doing & massive lean angle & corner speed !! i have a mate who is laughing at me for selling "such a fast bike to get a little bike" , well i cant wait to embarrass him & his 2012 ZX10R ninja up in the hills !! i'll try not to laugh to hard as i wait for him at the top of springbrook hahaha !!
the 675 triple has the perfect amount of grunt, able to get on the power hard in the corner power out & 2nd & 3rd gear pull plenty hard enough for the tight twistys i ride, full throttle most of the time by the time i exit a corner but thats is perfect i reckon, no need to have 180HP but only use 1/4 throttle, not to mention the sounds the triple makes !! induction, exhaust, that triple whistle, beautiful !!
also great for wheelies ! 1st gear all the way to limiter, 2nd & 3rd need a bit of a rise in the road ive found but slow speed clutch ups in first carry nice & high till its hits the limiter just perfect !!!
sorry for such a big write up let me know if its over the top, just excited about this bike !! going to put on a quickshifter, steering damper, shorty levers & thats about it, the bike has all the other mods i wanted to do to one which is why i jumped on it & drove 1400 kays to get it, plus my favourite colour, anyway i am one happy triumph rider, been on it all day & cant wait till 2moro to do it all again !!
