Street, naked, or standard bikes have for a long time been seen as the red-headed stepchild of the motorcycle industry. That’s understandable since most of us would do anything to land a super cool fast and sporty motorbike. Some people, on the other hand, find street bikes practical. They are convenient, easy to ride, cheap, and are fuel efficient. Below are the reviews of two of the best street bikes at the moment:
Triumph Street Triple R
The Triumph Street Triple R is one of the best street bikes on the market right now. The Street Triple line of motorcycles has, over the years, built itself a reputation for its style, character, and quality. The latest entrant into the street bikes category from the British manufacturer is the Triumph Street Triple R.
The bike delivers up to 123PS peak power at 11,700 rpm, a significant improvement over its predecessors. It also comes with a higher capacity engine (765cc) for more torque, performance, and power. The latest Street Triple bike from Triumph is perfect for anyone looking to hit apex after apex on the race circuit, get a perfect line in the twisties, or take on the city streets.
It comes with high spec suspension, tyres, can chassis, not to mention the more aggressive and athletic poise, sharper styling, and state of the art technology. There is a low ride model of the Street Triple R that comes with a unique seating set up and suspension to make the bike more accessible.
Yamaha is one of the most established bike brands in the world. The Yamaha brand is trusted, and for a good reason. The Yamaha YZF-R1 is a good example of one of the reasons behind Yamaha’s success. It’s a magnificent street bike loaded with ultra-modern technology for the ultimate performance.
It comes with an inline four, 998cc petrol engine and a diamond designed aluminum frame. Despite the high-performance engine on the bike, it still delivers a respectable level of fuel economy. Like all Yamaha bikes, the YZF-R1 is reliable, well built, and a solid motorbike.
Standard features on the YZF-R1 include the analog tachometer, the electronic instrument gauge with dual trip meter and projector headlights, adjustable footrest, and a slipper clutch. The front and the rear wheels have been fitted with 320mm dual discs and 220mm single disc respectively to cope with the high amount of torque produced by the engine. The blue color looks good on the Yamaha YZF-R1.
