To quote the previous owner “I have problems!” He, like all of us here at Bob’s, loves motorcycles. Having just one is not enough, but having them all is, well, just not possible. He had a blast riding this brand new 2018 Triumph Street Triple RS over the summer, then decided it was time to trade it towards a BMW S1000R for a different kind of riding experience on a different brand, not to mention a different dealership experience. He has had many bikes, but after test riding the S1000R, he was excited to join the Bob’s BMW family with his first BMW Motorrad.
This 2018 Street Triple RS has only 3,646 miles on it. It had its break in service completed at an authorized Triumph dealer earlier this year as well as having the tires upgraded to the brand new Michelin Road 5 series tires. These are the newly designed and released road tires to replace the industry leading Road 4’s. So far the feedback from customers has been super positive. Cosmetically the RS is as close to brand new condition as you can get. There is a small area of paint imperfection on the left hand tail piece near the Street Triple decal. We took a close up picture of the area but it’s still really hard to see. Even in person you wouldn’t see it without it being pointed out. Beyond that the bike is cosmetically new. We critically rate the bike a 9.5 out of 10.
Mechanically the bike operates as you would expect a new bike to operate. It’s a blast to ride, sounds fantastic and everything operates as designed. We took the liberty of giving it an oil change and put the Triumph through the Maryland State Inspection which it passed easily. We then completed our 38 point safety inspection and extended test ride. Everything came back two thumbs up. We then gave the bike to our professional detailer to remove some finger prints and polish it up for the showroom floor. The bike is stunning. Especially in the high gloss black finish with the red and white details. Beautiful bike. It looks fast sitting still.
The Triple Street Triple RS is the ultimate street performance bike. Housing a 765cc three cylinder (Triple) engine that is capable of generating 120 hp and 77nm of torque. For braking (which also equates to power) the Triumph has top of the line Brembo front and rear calipers and a very nicely sorted ABS system and traction control. The 2018 models is lighter than previous years and has the newly designed “gullwing” swingarm. It has rain and road riding modes and a very slick looking LCD instrument cluster and on-board computer. Upside down forks and single rear shock with very dynamic suspension and a very sporty riding position this bike handles great and is a blast to ride.
The previous owner added a Yoshimura slip-on muffler which accentuates the great growl of this British machine. It also comes with TechSpec belly and side tank pads and he had Triumph heated grips installed on the bike as well. The bike comes with all the owner’s manuals, 2 keys and the factory took kit.
