That's not the correct photo for the Street Triple...you've got a Speed Triple there.
The Street never had a single sided swing arm. For 2013 and newer the Street also has a single low mount exhaust too.
As a prior Triumph owner, they really make a nice bike in the street triple and the speed triple. That said, my ownership experience was plagued with major problems. Now granted this was a 98 daytona/t595 and Triumph has come a long way since then. And the speed triple is an absolute blast to ride, if I trusted them, I'd buy a speed triple in a second.
But, I have a good memory and as much as i like them, I don't trust them for long term reliability.
I do appreciate the Triumphs. Their build quality has really improved since the Daytona days. I used to use the Speed Four as a track bike, and was lucky enough to not have any real problems with it. I have heard they USED to have issues though. I would completely buy another Triumph. Heck, a BMW friend even said the Triumph quality surpasses the beamer's these days.
I agree about the street triple's headlights. It looks like a bunch on designers sat down and decided to come up with a great looking bike and when they were done, someone noticed that it didn't have any headlights, so they went over to a misc. parts bin and rooted around till they found some headlights.....any headlights and just stuck them on the bike. Hideous for sure!
The whole dealer network thing is an issue with me. The Street Triple is going to cost me an hour one way when i need warranty service (either north or south as I'm right in the middle of the dealers). Yamaha is 15min away. I'm still torn though. (?)!
I looked into A Triumph and the dealer would not come off the sticker price and I thought it was even higher and the more I looked at it ,it just did not stack up to the Japanese bikes, was so glad when I saw the FZ09 that I just have to have one !
