Last weekend we went shopping for a new lid and to have a closer look and chat abouit the Striple at PS Ringwood. Kirby the salesman suggested I book a ride for this Saturday on StripleR as it's a Triumph ride day. So I rocked up today, did the paper work had a chat and booked a ride on the Daytona 675 as well. The ride was through the back of Warrandyte back through Chirnside park, about a 45 minute loop of mainly flowing twisties. Street Triple R; First thing I noticed was how up right you are and the spongey feeling seat. I must admit I didn't settle in straight away as I'd just gotten off my bike, with a little time you'd adjust. Don't get me wrong it is a comfy bike, I feel it being quite diverse in it's application. The clutch feels light but the reach is pretty long, gearbox I had mixed feelings, bit notchy but I suspect it'd free up with a few more K's under it's belt. I can understand why people love these bikes, it feels very light and nimble with a reasonable amount of go to it. I would purchase an R as it felt quite compliant in it's ride so any softer like a standard would be too soft. I think it would make a fantastic all round bike, commute in comfort and carve up the hills on weekends. Daytona 675 with factory quick shifter & Arrow pipe; Seating is similar to my bike, but the rearsets are higher and further back and the clipons are not out as wide, seat is wide but still pretty hard. The riding position is probably a little more upright than mine but is very comfy in an attack style position. Where do I start? This bike is brilliant! It once again feels light and nimble and manouvering around the tank is easy. It has great power, very linear, super smooth, great gearbox and a very addictive quick shifter! Oh, it sounds awesome too. Overall I'm extremely impressed and I would puchase one if it's the only bike I had to have. I would purchase a standard as the ride was firm any firmer like an R would be uncomfortable. Why am I looking? Well sometimes I don't feel like riding a supersport bike especially on and urban ride, hills no problems. Plus my wife gets off her restrictions early next year so I'm looking at a bike I can utilise a little now and she can jump straight onto the day she gets off her restrictions. I think the Striple R is the perfect transition bike for anyone, with ample power, comfortable ride and position and a lot of ability to it. I must commend the staff at PS Ringwood. Absolutely zero pressure to come in and sign you up. And the assistance in finding the right lid for my wife, their service has been fantastic so far. BTW, I have no affiliation with Triumph or PS.
