The 2014 Intermot show is getting better and better. Triumph Motorcycles has showcased its latest creation, the Street Triple RX. Based on its most successful naked bike -the Street Triple R, the RX model gets few inspirations from the Daytona 675R.
The British manufacturer has replaced the tail unit of this middle-weight street bike with that of the Daytona 675R and let me tell you, it looks so much better. They should have done this long back but nevertheless, we at least have it now. Triumph has fitted the RX bike with the seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen and all these are standard equipment, just for the RX.
Mechanically, the Street Triple RX remains the same. It gets the signature 675cc triple cylinder mill derived from the Daytona 675 that churns out 105bhp at 11,850rpm and maximum torque of 68Nm at 9,750rpm. The only new addition to the RX is the provision of the accessory quickshifter as standard fitment, which is a welcome feature.
Unfortunately, this particular model won’t make its way to India soon, considering the fact that Triumph is just a year old in the country. But the kind of response they have got, it might tempt them to introduce such models in the country.
