Yamaha MT-09 Vs Triumph Street Triple
How does the MT-09 stack up against the street triple?
Like lots of people commented, i have been very harsh on the MT-09. Let me
clear it up a little, its a freaking fantastic bike and i was only drawing
negatives when compared directly to the street triple, and its much cheaper
and faster so its really hard to
go past when looking at both bikes. It does only lack in areas that dont
matter for day to day driving.
But i was considering swapping the street to the MT from all the reviews,
but when i test rode it myself i was a little disappointed as i had put it
on a pedestal.

Ducati Streetfighter 848 vs Triumph Street Triple R! - On Two Wheels Episode 25
On this episode of On Two Wheels, Sport Rider Magazine's Bradley Adams and
Eric Nugent pit Ducati's Streetfighter 848 against Triumph's all-new 2013
Street Triple R as part of this year's middleweight naked bike comparison.
The two quickly learn that planning a trip in the middle of January wasn't
their smartest decision in recent years, but ultimately discover how
versatile these bikes truly are. In typical On Two Wheels fashion, only one
bike can come out on top, but which will it be? Triumph's lighter, 675cc
Street Triple R, or Ducati's elegant, traction control-equipped

Street Triple crashes in a tight corner
2008 Triumph Street Triple lowsides in a tight corner on Panoramic Highway.
Skip to 2:15 for the crash, slow motion replays, and video of the damage.
The Exhaust sound in the video is from
the camera bike, not me. The bike and the tires were not at their traction
limit. The road had to have been the major factor. I have leaned quite
farther on this bike before. I was completely unhurt - not a scratch, no
bruises, nothing was even sore. Wear your gear on rides like this.
Looking at the slow motion video, you can see my handlebars turn (front
tire loses traction) at the same time as the rear tire loses it. I did not
touch the brakes at all.
The damage to the bike:
Bent handlebar at the clamp (fixed by loosening the bolts and
Scratched clutch lever and bar end (non-issue really)
Lost the turn signal switch
Scratched mirror (it rotated on its mount, so it didn't break off,
Bad scratch on the engine case
Shifter bent 90 degrees
Rear plastic cracked
The tank was untouched. I rode the bike home. The only thing I'm replacing
is the shifter.
As for my gear: tiny scratch on the jacket, boots and pants only scratched
on the plastic sliders, and one glove was scratched on the carbon fiber
knuckle. The helmet did not impact.
My gopro was on the bike following me, so I don't have on-board footage.
This was my first crash after 2 years of riding.

The sequel to the Icon original video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle -
Nick 'Apex' Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate,
Ernie Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed
Triples - built by Roaring Toyz for the sole purpose of going sideways.
Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has
led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. Low traffic, perfect
asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with
their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have
had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle
to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and
he's got a license to use it...
