Expert Review of Triumph Street Triple 675

The new model looks like the 1050 cc Triumph Speed Triple. The new member, 675 is the latest bike in the Speed Triple series by Triumph Motorcycles in its segment.
In the early 1990s, Triumph became one of the earliest adopters of a new style of motorcycles referred to as ‘streetfighters’. Triumph has set to bring the Street Triple to India along with the other six models. Since 2007, when the first model was launched, Triumph is high with its sales and demands all over.

The muscular and sporty bike is available in various vibrant and metallic colors. The company chose to launch the motorcycle in red, white and black colors. Out of the three colors, the black looks the most attractive in the bike. However, Triumph also agrees to order the bikes in the customer’s choice of colors too.

The tank, fender and tail are reshaped, and small cowls now reside on either side of the radiator. Triumph’s engineers and designers steepened the handle of the bike and shifted the engine a little forward to increase the handling. Pulling the bars back, sliding the foot-pegs forward, lowering and lengthening the seat compressed the cockpit to yield a more upright riding position. The headlights are changed to angular design for a much greater look. The first thing you visualize when sitting on the Triumph is the LCD multi-functional instrument gauge cluster.
