Triumph Re-releases the Street Triple Rx – the popular offering is back for 2016 in two striking new colours.

First released in 2014, the “Rx” took much of it’s inspiration and technology from its multi-award and race championship winning supersports sibling, the Daytona 675R.

The aggressively styled and eye catching machine was an instant success. For 2016 the Triumph Street Triple “Rx” returns and is now available in two striking colours – Matt Aluminium Silver and Jet Black.

The “Rx” takes the Triumph Street Triple to a whole new level.

The bike is powered by the 675cc, 12-valve unit from the legendary Triumph Daytona 675 sports bike that has been carefully retuned to deliver a punchy 78kW and magnificently linear 68Nm.

The engine is renowned as one of the finest and smoothest in its class, and is certainly one of the easiest to live with both around town and on the open road.

Combined with a slick, close-ratio six-speed gearbox, Triumph’s quickshifter and flawless throttle control, the powerplant delivers an exhilarating ride.

The frame is an aluminium twin spar unit with two-piece die cast rear subframe. Front suspension is 41mm KYB inverted front forks that are fully adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping.

Front brakes are twin 310mm floating discs with a sophisticated, ABS system as standard. The ABS has the option of being switched off if required.

The already distinctive styling of the Triumph Street Triple R the bike is based on has been further enhanced with a seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen.

The Street Triple Rx “Special Edition” comes with a high level of equipment as standard, including an engine immobiliser, comprehensive LCD digital instrumentation with built-in lap timer, programmable gear shift lights, fuel gauge, clock and gear position indicator.

The clocks can also display front and rear tyre pressures when the optional Triumph Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is fitted.

The Triumph Street Triple Rx is available now and will be priced at $14,990 plus on roads.
