I've owned everything from RZ350's to Husqvarna 510 Supermoto's to a Triumph Scrambler to a Yamaha R1 and several other bikes as well. I tour, do several track days a year and ride MX so I would consider myself a pretty well-rounded rider. I bought my Street Triple at dealership in Whitby, Ontario, Canada in the fall of 2012. I couldn't believe the torque and horsepower that the triple motor could make. It handles lightning fast like a Supermoto and hauls like a Superbike. I have already ridden from Toronto to New Brunswick and back, and just recently returned from a trip to Tennessee and North Carolina. I'm sure there may be more comfortable touring bikes, but the Street triple really is that versatile. This bike definitely is going to be around for the long haul.

I started riding motorcycles on the road in 2006, started on an '02 GSXR750. I learned a lot on that, but one day I rode an SV650s and never knew what a bike like that was capable of. I thought I was on the right bike, for LIFE, but then I saw a street triple R and feel in love all over again. I didn't need to ride it, I knew it was a go as soon as I laid my eyes on it. I rode it on 18 mountains in Laurel Springs and was dragging knee in the first turn just cruising, it handles like NO other! I hope this bike is the last for me for 20 years, because it's everything I want/need for the mountains of NC/TN.

It has a smoothly responsive engine and handling, the bike is powerful yet controllable. It turns heads with its looks and burbling, muscular sound. It's a great combination bike for track riding or touring/commuting. The seat is pretty unsupportive, and the steering lock is very limited. A few seals had to be replaced by the dealer and they had problems with the regulator/rectifiers that are now solved. In the final analysis this bike has instant classic written all over it.

First off, let me say this bike is not for someone who does not want speed. It's super fast on the road, super light, super smooth and the power is addicting. The symphony of pistons is incredible. The only gripes I have are with the steering stops and speedometer. It is very hard to maneuver around in the garage and the speedometer is hidden behind the cables while you are seated. Now for the shocker. I just traded it in on a 2010 Bonneville. It was just too fast for my self control.

This is one fun machine! The engine gives fantastic performance over the entire rev range and the sound is pure road music. That coupled with the bike's light weight makes for a very spirited ride to say the least. I really like how the clutch engages as soon as you begin to release the lever and shifting is as smooth as you could ask. It is extremely responsive and handles curves like it's on rails. It is lighter and has a lower center of gravity than my FZ6 which makes it very easy to handle for someone my size. The seat wasn't bad but it seemed to pitch me a little more forward than I liked so I had it modified. It doesn't have as much lock to lock steering degrees as some bikes but the short wheel base compensates. About the only other negative is that the buttons that control the computer are a little tough to access.
