Your Street Triple, do you want it full-bodied or decaffeinated? In either case, the urge to take it boiling is pressing. No sweetener or bitterness for the 765 RS version; just sport in every scent.
For this 660 S, it’s something else. The body plays the same score of seduction but at the start, we reach a less dry, more accessible world. Where the English roadster pays tribute before warming your hands.
The manufacturer from Hinckley knows how to handle the personality of his machines. Observe, compare, detail, and count on a short list the differences in appearance between the S and the RS. None of the owners will feel like they have a Street at a discount. Sharing the same sinister gaze, an identical line, equally athletic skeleton and equally exciting virulence, the " kind " family is confusing as it can be. Above all, it sweats the improvement, modeled on the upgrade of the 765.
You have to have an eye to grasp the subtleties, the effects that go from standard to athletic. Here, no engine guard or seat backrest; the metallic appearance of the rear buckle has faded; we lost the carbon finish on the end of the exhaust; the retros take a classic position; the endowment of equipment confirms the gap between the sisters.
The Street Triple S costs less, much less than the top of the range. It must be said that its power is less. 95 horses, a discount of about 30%. Several reasons for this. First, it wants to be able to pass into the hands of A2 permits. To be able to be restrained, it must cap at 70 kW. Then, it doesn’t have the same engine, even though it’s a three-cylinder. The block size 660 cm3, took the fold to pass Euro5 and has already sufficient power to go fast.
Side chassis, we also review the claims. No bleeding attacks in sight? No need to buy Brembo M50 4-piston brake calipers. In addition, measured Nissin 2-piston pliers will handle 310mm discs. The suspensions lose almost all of their settings; only the Showa shock absorber retains the possibility of adjusting the preload. The Japanese manufacturer also supplies the 41mm inverted fork..
One of the visual strengths, perhaps the most important, is this double lens, more intense and modified with each chapter. Behind him, the dashboard is modern but yet from another time. A digital liquid crystal window coexisting with a monocle where a needle moves for the tachometer. It was perfect for the 675 Street Triple – it’s less classy and a lot less technological back in the 765 days. Should we be complaining in an era when TFT screens are everywhere? Not really … rather irrelevant. Because the 660 Street Triple S is here to introduce the hairy roadster gang.
To discover is also to be satisfied with one part when the premium offers the cake. This applies to the on-board electronics; although they are not crumbs, far from it. This 660 S has traction control, ABS and two driving modes (Road or Rain), LED lighting, and the same daytime signature as the RS.
The Triumph Street Triple S was available in two versions in its previous generation: 765 cm3 to be part of the family and 660 cm3 to satisfy the opening towards young permits. Descent makes it easy. Small displacement for boys, average for bads.
The choice of colors is also reduced to the essentials: just one. White, that’s all.
This " small " Street Triple is also distinguished from its predecessor by a most interesting surprise. It is less expensive, without states or weakness of soul
