Triumph Begins Teasing A New Street Triple RS

It appears that Triumph has a new sport bike for us to drool over, and no I’m not talking about the recently debuted Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 supersport. 

But, today’s news does concern a 765cc three-cylinder motorcycle: the Triumph Street Triple RS.

We know this is the case because the British brand is hocking the new bike in a not-so-subtle way on social media right now (check the teaser video above).

We also know a few details about this upcoming machine, and that includes the new aesthetic to the iconic dual front headlights, which incorporates a DRL design.

The rumor on the internet is that the 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS will share an engine with the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765. If true, that would mean a 128hp engine, with the meat of the torque curve towards the top of the rev range.

That generally doesn’t make for a good street bike design, so it will be interesting to see if 1) the rumor is true, and 2) if it is, how Triumph will keep the Street Triple RS as the potent street bike that we already know and love.

We won’t have to wait too long to see what Triumph has in store for the Street Triple RS, as the new bike is set to debut on October 12th.

This makes the 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS one of several machines from motorcycle manufacturers that is being released ahead of the onslaught that comes with the EICMA trade show in November.

Clearly the Brits don’t want their creation to get lost in the chaos that occurs in Milan.
