Triumph Street Triple 675 (Gen 2, 2013-2016, 675cc, including Street Triple R)

This is the maintenance schedule and service intervals for the Gen 2 Triumph Street Triple 675, including the Street Triple R, made between 2013-2016. At the time they were known as just the “Triumph Street Triple”, but the later 765cc engine in the 2017+ range of Street Triples means we have to disambiguate them.

Here are all the Triumph Street Triple motorcycles, in case you’re looking for another one:

The Triumph Street Triple is affectionately known as the “Striple” by its fans and owners.

The Street Triple 675 and Street Triple 675 R were significantly refreshed in 2013. They got angular-styled front headlights (much to the chagrin of every human who loved the original round headlights), optional ABS, more power, and just more of everything people loved about the original Street Triple.

The 675cc Street Triple was also the last version to be sold alongside the Daytona 675 as its stablemate in showrooms. There was no “reasonably available” Daytona 765, aside from very exclusive Moto2 units.

The Street Triple 675 was replaced by the Street Triple 765, the premium version of which being 2017+ Street Triple RS.

About the Triumph Street Triple 675 (2nd gen)

Black triumph Street Triple

Triumph debuted the 2013 Street Triple and Street Triple R at the international bike show in Cologne, Germany.

Triumph kept the 675cc engine as it previously was in the first version of the Street Triple, but radically revised the chassis and the style, getting it down by 13 lb (6 kg) to an extremely svelte 183kg (403 lb) fully fuelled and ready to ride.

Triumph also added switchable ABS as a standard item in most markets (optional in a few), an engine immobilizer, and a modified exhaust to help with mass centralisation but also with emissions.

The more premium Street Triple R gets fully adjustable 41mm forks up front and a rear shock that has adjustable pre-load and rebound.

Probably most controversial are the design changes. The original Triumph Street Triple had twin circular front headlights that looked fast, classic, and unique. They weren’t terribly aerodynamic, though, but nonetheless many fans of the Striple series went up in arms when Triumph decided to ditch the original design.

Which is to say nothing of the up-swept under-the-seat exhausts. Great looking, but heavy, and don’t help with keeping mass centralised.

The 2013 Triumph Street Triple came in Phantom Black, Crystal White, and Caribbean Blue.

At the time, the Street Triple really was in a class of its own for multiple reasons.

  • Most middleweight motorcycles were actually a bit larger, like the Z800, or a bit smaller, like the Honda CB650F.
  • No other middleweights were three-cylinder bikes (triples). This was before the time of the FZ-09.
  • The Street Triple had quite a uniquely flat torque curve for a middleweight. Other motorcycle manufacturers tried to tune their bikes for low-end torque… but there was nothing quite like the Striple.

The original 2007-2012 Street Triple was so well-loved that people were quite surprised that Triumph would release such a drastic update, keeping the engine intact. But nonetheless the successor also sold very well, and the Street Triple R of this period is now iconic — its replacements in the 2017-2020 Street Triple R and RS aren/t quite the same, as they are a little more top-end focused.
