if they are $8k with the dollar at $2.06 to the british pound, then they will only be about $6k if we could just get it back to $1.60 / 1 brit lb.

come on exchange rate..

Re-cammed, budget suspension, and budget brakes. Its the japanese formula for denutting sportbikes for naked duty.

While that dissappoints me, it still has plenty of power, is plenty light, and looks plenty good, especially with the arrow exhaust. The magazines are giving it favourable reviews for now.

Over time, if I want, I can overcome the deficits, and get exactly the bike I want. For now, its the closest thing made. I'll put my deposit down in the next couple of weeks. I'm still excited...just not as excited as I COULD have been.

According to Motorcyclist:
"...We pushed enough to let the Street Triple defend its low-spec front end. The non-adjustable fork might be an issue on track days, but it was better behaved than the bigger Speed Triple's. It's no struggle to slow the package down, thanks to Daytona spec pads and rotors. We couldn't fault it for spirited backroad ripping..."
"Despite new milder cam timing, the 675 triple seems to pull just about as hard as the Daytona's. Expect wheelies in the first 3 gears, thanks to the added bottom end and midrange."
The article mentioned the front suspension a few times, but nothing about the rear. Sounds to me like its better than adequate the way it is, and hasty upgrades to Daytona spec may not improve it much.

It's too close in price to a D675 with too many changes. It should have been like the S4 was to the TT600.

I was excited for it, I planned on trading up/in...I'd rather spend the extra $1000 on the D675.

I was thinking a similar thing. I opted to get a more comfortable S3 than the D675 because I knew the ergos would be punishing. I've always been a fan of lightweight and flickable bikes.

How much did you pay? They had one at the Austin dealership for $9300, with everything added (ie. ttl, etc.). It started at $7999 msrp.

With TTL, out the door it was going to be $9464. However, I had a trade in that reduced some of the taxes. I think they are going to be going for MSRP for a while.

I looked at these when I was at Eurosport Cycle in Ft. Worth this past weekend and was surprised that I almost liked it (not a big fan of sport bikes). I decided that even if I could get used to the seating position, I couldn't get used to the fairing on the front (one of the reasons I don't like sport bikes). I also noticed that the way the headlights are mounted, it's pretty much impossible to remove the fairing without it looking even worse.

:huh: This bike has no fairings and has a great seating position. Are you thinking of the Daytona 675?

Well, I could easily be using the wrong terminology here. I've highlighted what I'm referring to as the fairing. I have noted, however, in my search for this photo that it seems like there are a lot of photos of these bikes without this piece on it, so that might be where the confusing is coming from.

What you circled is actually two parts. The bottom one is called a flyscreen and the top is an instrument visor. I think they can both be removed as they are both listed as accessories. The US bikes come with the flyscreen installed. The UK bikes come with neither.

Sorry for the confusion....when I think of fairings, I think of the ones in front of your legs.

beardking
11-14-2007, 04:19 PM
The confusion is most likely on my end. Like I mentioned, I'm not well versed in sport bike lingo. ;-) Basically, if it's plastic/fiberglass and is attached to the front of the bike like on this one, then I automatically call it a fairing.

From what I was looking at on the bike at Eurosport, though, the headlights are mounted on some bracket that stick them out pretty far from the forks and without the flyscreen/visor apparatus, it would look quite goofy to me.

Check out the street triple that Beardking posted (not gonna repost it for our dialup friends). Does that exhaust go through the passenger footpeg mount? I wonder how odd that looks on the triple with the stubby arrow system on it.

The footpeg mount wraps around the exhaust pipes.

Here are a couple of pics of aftermarket exhausts. Most have removed the passenger footpegs and mounts.

Its more like dual sport rather than sport bike. One of the things I dislike about the Street3 is the upright seating. I'd prefer a more leaned in position.

it's pretty much impossible to remove the fairing without it looking even worse.
I was back in the shop today looking at the Street3, and the front is something I was checking on changing out. I like the Ducati Monster, where the headlamp turns with the forks. I understand the bug eye is part of the Triumph look, but when I get this bike, I'll go to a single lamp on the forks, and move the instrument panel down and back.

They have the Street3 and S3 side by side, and the sit test show the difference in bikes is huge. The Street3 is just a downright nasty bike.

Is that nasty as in good nasty or bad nasty....as bad went from meaning bad to good years ago.....I'm confused.

I absolutely love the looks of the bike....hence my purchase. But as with all things, everyone has an opinion. The bike is more than a fashion accessory for looks too....the sounds and feel of the bike are amazing. :rider:

As in very very good.

I spoke to a guy a year or so back who struggled with the S3 in tight turns keeping the steering settled down, but railed with the Daytona. Now I wonder if the Street 3 and Daytona 675 share more handling characteristics than the older larger models.

I'd be very interested in reading a couple paragraphs on your opinion after you've put a few thousand miles out. I really miss the triple, and love naked so much more than faired.

I can't let her get any wider....barely fits in the garage with the car as it is. The stock mirrors work fine for me.

I think the next mod will be the instrument visor that acts like a small wind deflector....here is a pic of it.

Now, to her defense, i posted this before I found her....However, Every lady should have at least 2 bikes, don't you agree? No reason that the Duchess can't have a lady in waiting!

This is just a beautiful bike IMO. Just about 4k more than I can afford. So, for now, I will ride the Duchess and wait a few years to see what happens..Or, if i win the lottery tomorrow night, I will fly down to Austin and pick one up and ride her back to El Paso!
