British motorcycle brand Triumph has wowed the crowds attending last year’s EICMA show in Milan by showcasing the redesigned Speed Triple model, and it is now the Street Triple’s turn to go through similar changes.

The first shots of the 2012 Triumph Street Triple have surfaced through via Visordown, showing that the middleweight naked will adopt the controversial appearance change that includes the same headlights of its bigger brother.

The only updates to the styling of the Street Triple and Street Triple R versions will be the new headlights and several minor cosmetic elements. These include new protection for the exhaust pipes, new graphics for the tank and the back loop.

Changes to the color schemes have also been made, with the machine coming available in Phantom Black, Crystal White and the new Imperial Purple.

As you can see in the adjacent images, the twin headlights have been restyled for a more angular appearance instead of the previous model’s round lights. Just like on its bigger 1050cc sibling, the new lighting units will also hold the tachometer and speedo instrument console, that are now delivering more instrumentation options including a lap timer and programmable shift light.

The motorcycle will however retain the same technical specifications, such as the 675cc three-cylinder engine tuned for strong low-to-mid range performance. The middleweight street fighter delivers 105 horsepower at 11,700 rpm and a maximum 68 Nm (50 lb.ft.) of torque.

The Street Triple’s narrow and lightweight aluminum frame contributes to a motorcycle that weighs just 189kg (417lbs) fully fueled and ready to ride.
