The Triumph Street is a bike that catered to somewhat of a small niche when it originally hit the market in 2008. It came packed with both beauty and power that could rival some of the top bikes in the industry at that time, but only came packing a 675-cc engine. Now, however, more and more motorcycles have flooded the market that Triumph dominated and is making people wonder just how well the 2011 Triumph Street holds up against the competition. The 2011 Triumph Street comes packing a three-cylinder, liquid-cooled 675-cc engine that’s capable of producing up to 105 horsepower at 11,700 rpm and 50 lb-ft of torque at 9200 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed, manual transmission and a chain, just like any other typical sport bike, operates the final drive.
The 2011 Triumph Street has a sleek style that any motorcycle enthusiast is going to love. When operating the bike it feels almost as if the bike has become a part of the owner. The sheer power of the bike delivers a massive kick when the rider needs that extra oomph of power and it’s exhilarating to say the least. As the RPMs of the bike continue to rise, so does the heartbeat of the owner and that’s something only achievable by riding such a beautiful and powerful bike. This is rarely captured with other sport bikes on the market, but it seems as if Triumph has captured this feeling quite successfully.
All in all, the 2011 Triumph Street is a bike that may not be as updated as its competitors at this point, but it can hold its own without a problem. It’s easy to say that motorcycle enthusiasts who are looking for a fast, naked bike will fall in love with the 2011 Triumph Street.
