It was a sad day when I finally returned the 2017 Triumph Street Triple RS that I so fondly grew to love. I begged, pleaded and even threw a candy-aisle temper tantrum, kicking and screaming to no avail. No, not really, but handing the keys back over to Triumph was bittersweet, like dropping family off at the airport. All good things must come to an end, I suppose.
The 2017 Triumph Street Triple RS was absolutely unflappable around the Catalunya circuit. As the newest high-caliber version in Triumph’s 2017 arsenal of mid-displacement nakeds, the RS is almost at home on the track as it is on the street. The new Street Triple is the epitome of a bike you can ride to, at, and from a racetrack confident in its both its comfort and performance.
