Triumph Street Triple RS

Easy peasy with this three-sy.

Previously, the term super middleweight has been reserved for the likes of Chris Eubank Jr and Carl Froch, yet the Street Triple’s latest advancements have now warranted an exclusive naked supermid label. Once again Triumph has raised the bar and created a class-leading weapon, although it wasn’t plain sailing.

I was slightly perplexed after most of the boys jumped off the RS for the first time and were left underwhelmed, although I could see why. It all revolves around the electronics, which reset every time the ignition is switched off. In its more obtrusive modes, the electronics invasively cull the power as soon as the front wheel approaches lift-off. After a quick tutorial on how to navigate the confusing five-way joystick and select ‘Track’ mode, unremitting three-pot power was exulted by all. We don’t need anti-wheelie on a 120bhp middleweight, Mr Bloor.
