INTERMOT 2014: Triumph Street Triple RX takes cues from its Daytona sibling

Sep 30, 2014

Triumph took its popular Street Triple R, borrowed a few styling touches from its sporty sibling, the Daytona 675, and came up with the Street Triple RX for INTERMOT.

There's not a lot new under the skin, with the Street Triple RX. That's not a bad thing, since the Street Triple R is such a good package to start with. Triumph prettified it with a matte silver and red paint scheme, added a slim tail section off the Daytona, included the flyscreen and a belly pan, and made the quickshifter standard. Personally, I love the look, though I wouldn't put any passenger I care about on that pillion.

There. I made it through the description without a single bad pun about how the RX could be just the prescription for what ails you.
