The Triumph Street Triple 660 learner-approved motorcycle will be unveiled at the Troy Bayliss Motor Expo in Brisbane next month and even learners can take it for a test ride. Triumph Australia will take test ride bookings for the new Street Triple 660 and has even invited learner and probationary licence holders to throw a leg over.
Triumph’s first learner-approved motorcycle should be a huge boon for the company which has been missing out on the lucrative LAMS market. Triumph Australia’s Mark Berger says there has been a lot of interest in the model. “Not that this comes as a great surprise, the Triumph Street Triple has been a hot favourite of Australian motorcyclists since its introduction in 2008,” he says.
The Street Triple 660 is based on the Street Triple which was totally revamped last year with a new lighter chassis and wheels, and better geometry, weight distribution and handling. The LAMS bike comes with the safety of ABS braking and features all the same quality components as the full power version, Mark says.
There is no word on pricing yet, but the 675cc version starts at $12,495 (plus on-road costs). Since this model will have all the same gear, but just a restrictor in place, it should be about the same ballpark price. The Triumph Street Triple 660 will hit the showrooms midyear with a big range of special custom accessories and dedicated riding apparel.
