2012 Triumph Street Triple goes bug-eyed
30 Mars 2011
If you've been waiting to see Triumph translate some of the more impressive changes the company made to its Speed Triple this year to the more modest Street Triple and Street Triple R, wait no more. The bike maker has dropped a few photos and details on the 2012 model-year and it should come packing updates borrowed from its bigger brother.
Those include a startling pair of new headlights, aluminium handle bars and engine case cover. Speaking of the mighty three cylinders nestled between the frames, Triumph has dialled up the power to 106 ponies and 50 pound-feet of torque.
There's no word on whether Triumph was able to shave any weight from the bike, but the three-pot should have no problem moving both rider and machine down the road in a hurry. Asphalt & Rubber reports that prices for the 2012 model are the same in France, which means the company may keep the MSRP flat for American buyers as well.
