The Triumph Street Triple R gets updated for 2013, with some major changes to the chassis, as well as a reduction in weight. The all-new frame improves the centralization of weight, and the new low-slung exhaust for the 675cc triple-cylinder engine replaces the familiar under-seat design. ABS is now standard, and it can be disables for those who prefer the Do It Yourself method of traction control while braking. The already steep front forks have been tucked in farther, and the KYB suspension is fully adjustable at both ends.
Although it has the same unusual engine size as the Triumph Street Triple R, the Triumph Daytona 675R is a significantly different motorcycle, with different geometry (shorter wheelbase, steeper forks) and the 2013 engine is more oversquare, revs higher and puts out more power. Plus, of course, the ergonomics are completely different. A successful World Supersport platform, the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R also gets new body work, less weight, slip-assist clutch, ABS (can also be switched off), lighter wheels with Pirelli SuperCorsa tires and Brembo Monoblocs up front, and a quickshift system.
The Triumph Speed Triple R is one of the toughest of all the street fighting nakedbikes. The 1050cc machine bristles with trick parts, including Öhlns suspension NIX30 forks and TTX36 shock), Brembo monobloc radial caliper (with optional ABS), Pirelli SuperCorsa SP tires and Otto Fuchs aluminum wheels. Power from the iconic triple-cylinder engine comes on strong and early, with maximum torque hit at 7,750rpm.
The standard Triumph Speed Triple runs 200,000 THB less, and has lower-spec suspension, tires and brakes, plus heavier wheels and fewer high-end detail bits.
