2016 Triumph Street Triple Rx Black

The 2016 Triumph Street Triple Rx Black was unveiled at the Motorcycle Live show in Birmingham in November 2015, and is the top model of the Street Triple series. The Rx Black is derived, as are its siblings, from Triumph’s well-received supersports model, the Daytona 675R.

The bike comes with revised graphics, and a semi-gloss black paint job, setting it apart from the 2015 Rx’s matte silver finish. Aside from the paint, there is no change in specification from the previous year’s model.

As its name implies, the Street Triple has an inline three cylinder, 12-valve, DOHC liquid-cooled engine displacing 675 cc. Power is claimed to be 105 hp at 10,500 rpm, while torque is 68 Nm at 9,750 rpm, driving a six-speed gearbox. Fuelling is with multi-point sequential electronic fuel injection.

The 2016 Street Triple Rx Black is reported to retail at £8,599 (RM54,886).
