Here it is, after a bit of teasing, the new Triumph Street Triple RS 765 is out, and the model refresh sees a combination of updated looks and mechanical upgrades.
As was rumored, the bike shares a motor with the recently unveiled Triumph Daytona Moto2 765, which means its Euro5-compliant 765cc engine pumps out 121hp and 58 lbs•ft of torque.
To tame that power for street use, Triumph has adjusted the gearbox on the three-cylinder motor for better ratios for the street. The cams and exhaust have also been tuned for more mid-range and top-end torque, and there is a slipper clutch to complete the package.
For features, Triumph is including an up/down quickshifter, five riding modes, Brembo M50 brakes, Showa Big Piston forks (BPF), and an Öhlins shock. There is also traction control and selectable anti-lock brakes.
As we can see from the few photos that we have, the 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS gets a mild reworking visually as well, most notably in the bike’s headlight cluster and daylight running lights (DRL).
At 366 lbs dry, which is four pounds less than the outgoing model, which is impressive when you consider the driving force behind the 2020 model is the Euro5 emissions regulations.
Triumph is still not talking too many details, nore a release date and price – both of which will likely dictate the response to this popular street bike.
