Triumph boost

The new Triumph 675cc Street Triple will be launched in Austria on June 30 and arrive in Australian showrooms in November, but there is no local release date yet for the touring version of the 2.3 litre Rocket III.

Street Triple is architecturally and stylistically based on the 1050cc Speed Triple naked streetfighter with a detuned version of the Daytona 675 Supersport engine.

It will cost $11,990, a substantial reduction in price from the Daytona ($14,890) and Speed Triple ($15,990).

The touring version of its 2.3 litre Rocket III will feature new bodywork, suspension and chassis.

It has fixed panniers, a front screen, reshaped fuel tank and a single headlight rather than the Rocket's twin lights.

Suspension revisions include right-way-up forks, new rear shock springs to cope with the extra weight of the panniers and pillion passenger, and new wheels.

The frame is lengthened at the front and features extra bracing to stiffen it to cope with the extra weight.

The current Rocket III costs $24,990 and $25,990 for the Classic.
