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 re-tightening)
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, non-issue)
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.

Triumph Speed Triple R 2012 - Test Jerez Racetrack
zum Bericht: http://www.1000ps.at/testbericht-2353940-Triumph_Speed_Triple_R
Auch in der Speed Triple R leistet der 1050 Kubik große Dreizylinder (Triple) Motor 135 PS und 111 Nm. Aber die 'R'-Version ist mit einem Öhlins Fahrwerk ausgestattet, dessen Entwicklungsstand dicht an dem Material professioneller Rennserien wie MotoGP und Superbike ist. Deshalb wurde die Speed Triple R auch auf der Rennstrecke von Jerez getestet.

This year we've assembled the aristocrats of the class — Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC, MV Agusta Brutale R 1090 and Triumph Speed Triple R — to determine the hierarchy of the naked elite.

GoPro HD Hero 960 Triumph Street Triple Testride
Currently working on a different way to record the audio. Perhaps pulling out the mic out of the cam and extending the cable will do the trick. Right now it's either bad audio and good perspective or vice versa.
