So, then, it’s tidy, potent, stylish, and huge fun to ride. But you shouldn’t buy one. The tragedy of the standard Street Triple is that the up-spec “R” version is just $600 more. And for that you get the same willing engine in a delightfully nimble chassis, but with radial calipers up front, adjustable versions of the fork and shock, and spicy red styling accents. Still for less than $10,000.
