Triumph has revealed a special edition version of its Street Triple R at this week’s Intermot motorcycle show in Germany.
As the highest-spec variant of the Street Triple R, the new Rx derivative borrows visual cues from its TT and Daytona 200 winning superports sibling, the Daytona 675R. New design features include a sharper rear profile, a new “Aluminium Silver” paint scheme and revised graphics.
The angular seat unit is transplanted from the Daytona to create a more “aggressive” stance, say the designers. The bike’s lines are further accented by the new silver paint and red-coloured details, including the race-inspired wheels. A custom seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen complete the aesthetics.
At the heart of the bike is Triumph’s signature triple engine. The 675 cc, 12-valve unit is also derived from the 675 sportsbike, but is retuned to deliver 105 bhp and 50 lb ft of torque. The engine is paired with a close-ratio six-speed gearbox, while a quickshifter is also fitted as standard.
Triumph says revisions have also been made to the chassis, which features an eight-piece, aluminium twin spar frame and two-piece die cast rear subframe, mated to 41 mm KYB inverted, full adjustable front forks.
Braking, meanwhile, comes via twin 310 mm floating discs, which are assisted by an anti-lock brake system fitted as standard that can also be switched off.
