Triumph Street Triple 675 Bike Overview
The 2013 Street Triple handles very well and is great on even the bumpiest road. Some might complain that the suspension on this model isn’t fully-adjustable, but we don’t think this matters much.
Surprisingly, Triumph didn’t change much about the engine on this bike. They did complete some subtle modifications such as new fuel-injection bodies, as well as ECU settings. The engine also benefits from a higher first gear, aimed at giving a 30% boost in fuel efficiency. The engine didn’t need much changing, though, and we find it reliable and great in the mid-range.
The body of this bike has great attention to detail. Like some other Triumph models, parts can be susceptible to corrosion, so make sure you keep an eye on any rusting parts and replace or treat them promptly.
On the used market, these bikes are good value if you’re willing to shop around. You can also get optional ABS on this bike. Unfortunately, you don’t get anything like rider modes or wheelie control, which are pretty much standard on similar bikes.

Smooth and lightweight
Superb ride, very easy to potter or have a blast. It's also very light and agile.
Silky smooth, it's not a 200bhp monster but it's plenty fast enough on the roads
The downsides are very minor; the steering lock is not very good and the underseat storage is minimal, you certainly cant get overtrousers under it. Aside from those couple of minor niggles, the bike easily out performs me; I would consider myself to be 'weak link'.
Build quality is very good. It's done 32,000 miles with the only issue being the head gasket failure which isn't a common fault, Triumph were totally helpful as it was 4 months out of warranty even though the mechanic said it was a manufacturing fault. Even so I still love the bike.
It has fairly standard braking system which performs very well and basic suspension which seems great for most situations.
Barrels of fun, I throw mine around like my old Yamaha R125. My only complaint is the deadzone on the throttle feels a little extreme.
It's not going to win any drag races with R1s or H2Rs but it's more than quick for what I want, 0-60 dispatched in under 5 seconds means I'm beating everything off the line barring exotic cars! The sound of this 675 engine is just beautiful as well and I've had comments from passers by saying as much when pulling into work!
Costs me £15 to fill up with Super Unleaded, Shell V-Power as often as I can. With my commute that £15 lasts 4 days at approximately 50 miles a day. I will admit to being very liberal with the throttle but 200 miles on a 16 litre tank is really not bad at all!
Had a slight fuse problem during some seriously hot weather this summer, but other than that the build quality is excellent.
Decent set of brembo disk brakes. No complaints with these at all. Mine is also fitted with ABS for that added level of safety.
It's hard but it's the RS and its designed to handle amazingly well which it does. It feels hard if the road is badly pot marked but most of the time on most roads it's spot on. I haven't messed with the standard suspension settings as I haven't felt the need. Wind protection isn't brilliant but it's a naked. I added the small extra screen and that makes a real difference if you drop down towards the tank on motorway runs.
It's possibly the star of the show. For a 765cc it really does fly if you use the whole throttle range. The induction howl is something else and is totally addictive and the more you rev the more it howls. The engine will happily pull along at slow speeds but then respond instantly in 6th if you give the bike some revs. I'd say the engine suits the bike entirely and couldn't be any better.
I don't really worry about mpg when buying the bike but it's says I'm averaging into the 40's and its only done around 3000 miles so I'm guessing the mpg may still get a little better. The tank range seems a little light if I'm having a vigorous run and I can end up having to stop for fuels when friends bike are still ok. Insurance was a little higher than my previous bike and its on super sticky tyres so I'm assuming they're not cheap but they offer tons of grip. I've not had any services or other maintenance yet so I can't comment on that side.
It's a thing of beauty. I looked the Yamaha MT's and I honestly didn't like the finish on them which looked like they were built to a budget. The Triumph is a fair chunk dearer but you can see where the money is spent. Everything looks and feels like it's built to last and it pulls a crowd wherever it's parked.
Wow. Tremble and they honestly feel like a stoppie would be easy as they're so powerful. The problem is they're so good that they make other bikes you ride feel well below average and like they won't stop. The brakes are progressive and have lots of feel although they did initially squeal but this seems to have done now.
For something so composed at speed it is remarkably good over poor roads. I had the R model previously and I used to adjust the suspension on that to make it more forgiving when commuting, but I haven't missed that feature on this bike. Feels very light and is easy to pitch into corners with a neutral feel.
An addictive noise and spread of torque keep you pinning it everywhere. Pulls in all gears, has enough power for confident over takes without having to change gear. Has the quickest acceleration of any bike I have ridden and yet is so linear and predictable it gives you no issues accelerating hard away from roundabouts or down slip roads regardless of the conditions.
This is probably unfair as the bikes 'poor' fuel economy (high 40's on mixed riding) is down to the way I ride it as i know plenty who are getting 50+
6 months of winter riding…….a good clean and you could slip it back on the show room floor.
Having been used to the radials on the R I did have to retrain myself to be doing more than 1 finger braking. You're not left wanting anymore.
Probably the best handling bike I’ve ridden. Super light and easy to chuck into corners and handle
The 675 triple is a beautiful engine, not as smooth or long legged as the 1050 in my opinion, but sounds fantastic and rewards you for working the engine rather than being lazy in the gears
Obviously this depends on riding style, commuting to work on a dual carriageway it’s not too bad on fuel, when you let it rip on your days out that changes somewhat
I’ve seen no issues with build quality, got the bike third hand and it’s been well looked after
It’s always stopped for me
Very smooth ride, lightweight fantastic handling
Fantastic engine great torque and speed
Good mpg, as good as Japanese in line 4 cylinders bikes,not as good mpg as KTM 690. Insurance the same as R6 and KTM
Finish could be better on fasteners,had to have a battery after 3 1/2years
Power is where it is needed and comfortable ride
Power is where you need it
Tops out at 110 if you can bear the wind
ABS, nuff said
Hazard lights, cruise control, inbuilt satnav and Bluetooth preparation,
Bike is a dream, small, light and supremely agile, more than enough acceleration for the road and confidence inspiring braking.
Sweet acceleration from all speeds and pretty much any gear, and an exhaust note which is sweet, refined triple whistle at moderate acceleration and a decent bit of grunt when pushed, this is a superb bike
I have no complaints, although perhaps for comfort I might look for an adventure or touring machine next time.
Build quality and overall feel is perfect, this is an A1 bit of kit, no doubt.
ABS is unobtrusive but can be felt kicking in if you really grab hard, the confidence to slow down quickly if needed is definitely there.
It's a Triumph, the quality is excellent. Torque all the way up the gears!
The triple engine is the best feature of the bike, the whine as it goes along and like I mentioned earlier torque all the way up the gears so it will find speed and acceleration everywhere.
Definitely the brakes, they just lack a bit of polish and quality.
Everything seems pretty solid.
The brakes do let this bike down a little bit, they are the standard brakes fitted to the bike and obviously not as good as the brakes on the R version of this bike.
It feels heavy enough that it holds and corners well while also feeling light as a feather.
The bike feels very quick in each gear up to about 70/80 miles and obviously as that's the speed limit in the UK – I haven't tested it beyond this ?
People want to steal it!
No problems with it whatsoever. Mechanically it feels smooth and sounds great when riding. Accelerates fast.
Great responsive breaking system. I've never had any issues slowing down even quickly and the wheels have never locked.
Ride quality is great, lots of adjustment on the suspension to get it how you want it. I've softened mine up a bit for our well maintained British roads!
Plenty of power for the road imo.
Fitting bar end mirrors as standard.
Awesome brakes on this bike, with ABS too that thankfully I've not had to use yet.
With fully adjustable suspension front and rear, along with its slight weight loss over the standard bike, the result is simply phenomenal. The Street Triple also has Triumph's slick quick-shifter, for even faster, smoother gearshifts. Very smooth ride!
The 675cc triple is good for 105bhp, and can keep up with much bigger bikes. It is also not too intimidating as a first big bike. For a fast road to gaining confidence with the big bikes, I couldn't think of a better bike!
Could have offered the RX with lower height option
As expected with a Triumph, the build quality is exceptional. I have never had or heard of any problems with the Triumph Street Triple.
ABS-equipped brakes perform well, though they may not offer quite as much bite as some folks would prefer. I thought they were fine.
