The 2012 Triumph Street Triple R packs a serious punch when it comes to engine performance and handling. The impressive nature of this bike doesn’t stop with its extremely responsive 675cc in-line 3-cylinder power plant and fully adjustable sports suspension. The Street Triple R features the trademark twin headlights and high-level exhaust, meaty dual brake discs up front and a comprehensive instrument suite that even includes a lap timer and adjustable gear change indicator.
I think this Triumph is a great bike for intermediate and experienced female street motorcyclists who want a sportbike-type ride, but without the aggressive wrist numbing lean over of a true supersport. If you crave a highly tuned engine, the thrill of quick acceleration and stopping on a dime, then the Triumph Street Triple R should be a bike you demo ride in the near future.
Five experienced female riders recently tested the 2012 Triumph Street Triple R for the MotorcycleUSA.com Women's Streetbike Shootout. It should be no surprise the Street Triple R had no trouble standing out from the crowd.
