I try not to get mine under 4,000 ....mainly because I like the intake howl......

Not always the best idea on the Speed Triple, it tends to erm.....conserve tread....on the front tire somehow.

OK, I'm waffling on the low pipe and will probably go with Arrow or Two Brother's slip-ons. I'm not really liking the tone of the 3 into ones.

They are all three into ones, the one with two mufflers actually go 3-1-2.
...and they are hevy
...and that weight is in a bad place

The Arrow and Compworks are available baffled....you need to hear them (baffled) in person though, its a judgement call, for instance I can't stand an unbaffled compworks, but the arrow isn't nearly as annoying.

Another you can look for is the Zard off of the 06-08 Daytona, that one fits up (pretty sure) the '12 Streets and sounds fantastic, but its also out of production and kind of hard to find.....and its a full system, so there is going to be a trip to the dyno in order.

I ran the Zard with the arrow map with great results.

That would be the quick way. Yes.

I really love the sound of the street triple in this web site http://street-triple.triumphmotorcycles.com/en-us/
Is that the sound of a stock exhaust? Or what exhaust do they use in that video?

It is a mix of stock and Arrow.

So this may sound a little ridiculous, but hear me out:

I took a '12 street triple for a test ride last week, and it is haunting me. I come from an '03 Monster 620 and a '75 BMW. The Street Triple is an amazing machine. The Duc made me grin, the BMW made me smile. The Triumph made my jaw drop.

Shopping for a daily rider/commuter/occasional road tripper, I was looking at a BMW F800R, F700GS (mpg) and the Street Triple. Now I'm pretty much just looking at the Street Triple. My concern is a rather silly one. If I'm going to buy a first new bike, I might as well get it specced out. So my thinking is the R, right? Kinda like buying a BMW M3 vs. a 335 with a sport package (forgive me, my primary language is bimmer). But I really dislike the color red on bikes, cars, etc.

Can I pick up replacement frame parts and plastic bits in standard grey/white for a decent price and stick the R-specific stuff in a box, or should I give up this idea? I also like the idea of a 'sleeper' Street Triple R. I'm not a racer, and likely don't need the extra sexiness that comes with an R but if I'm gonna spend the cash, I might as well spend the cash. Just thinking and trying to figure out how to pull the trigger.

And I also want to see this thread grow, cause, DAMN that ride was fun. The world would be a better place if more people took one of these things down the road.

As always, much thanks to the ADV crew for insight, vitriol, and love.
