I don't think it looks much better. That's one of the main reasons I didn't get it. But the perfomance side of it is WAY batter than the street triple.

They could have done a LOT to clean up the way the engine looks.

if you are truly interested i would say the street triple r is the only way to go. the non adjustable suspension on the regular model is what kills it for me. also the r comes in a cool matte metallic orange.

The suspension and radial brakes make the R a much better bike.

well, a properly adjusted suspension for your weight is a night and day difference from the standard setup. adjustable for spring preload, and dampening. trust me. buy an r and take it to motorcycles unlimited for a proper $27.50 suspension adjustment. for sag

I sent mine off to Race-Tech and had it set up. No problems yet. But I can't make changes easily.

The only really problem with the R is there's NO clear coat on the bike. And they're VERY hard to fix dings and scratches on.
