5. Triumph Street Triple
Its wheelie-ability wasn’t the only reason why we chose the Street Triple R as our 2009 Motorcycle of the Year, but it certainly didn’t hurt its cause! The Street Triple is simply one of the most fun motorcycles on the market regardless of engine size or price tags.
The Street Trip is playfully eager for whatever fun you’re looking for on two wheels, and its 675cc three-cylinder engine delivers a bigger, nicer power hit that its displacement would indicate. Midrange power is generous, so there’s a wide span of grunt accessible for your wheelie pleasure, and its light chassis makes its rider feel fully in control.
