As a manufacturer, Triumph, most recently claimed the unofficial title of producing the most balanced 3 cylinder sports bike on the market. Competition is nipping at their heels with the closest competitor being the Yamaha FZ-09. Nevertheless, triumph seems to edge itself over the finish line for the naked bike segment. Here’s why with the 2014 Triumph Street Triple R ABS. The bike features light steering, superior handling and eye-popping brakes as compared to it’s previous models. Many popular motorcycle review websites have listed this bike as one of their top choices for best value all around! The street triple is packed with a punch of power, yet, light enough and compact. For the strength and simple assembly, the triumph’s new tubular frame (aluminium) is only made from a handful of component parts as opposed to 11 previously.  It has a rock solid chassis and steers heavier than the FZ-09. The Street triple has a fitted gear-driven balance shaft so long rides at high speeds aren’t interrupted by vibration. The bikes most obvious change is the placement of the exhaust pipe which runs beneath the engine, giving the tail a clean and modern look. This particular year model motorcycle is more responsive than ever thanks to the weight distribution towards the front end making the bike more centralized. The Abs system is automatically activated once the ignition switch is turned on. For the wrong kind of attention, there is a technology security system installed that detects a microchip in the key body. If the microchip is not present, the ignition system will be disabled. This also prevents copies of the real key being used to turn the bike on.
