Triumph reveals new Street Triple 765

Triumph’s Street Triple has been revamped by the British manufacturer for 2017 with engine capacity bumped up to 765cc.

The Street Triple was first released in 2007 with a 675cc engine, but this time round, Triumph has increased size and power on all three variants of the naked middleweight.

The Street Triple S kicks off the range with 113hp, with the R and RS putting out 118hp and 123hp respectively – that’s up from the 105hp engine of the current model.

There’s more torque too, with the S making 53lbft and both the R and RS making 56lbft.

Lighter and more agile

On top of a new engine, Triumph has also rung the changes around the bike to make it lighter and handle even better than the model it replaces.

The headline figure is that it weighs 2kg less than the current model while a new swing-arm improves high-speed stability, says Triumph.

In terms of technology, the new Street Triple 765 comes with a ride-by-wire throttle with multiple riding modes as well as traction control across all models.

New tech

At the top of the range, the R and RS come with a slipper clutch and a full colour dashboard, while the RS adds a quick shifter and a lap timer to the R’s equipment line up.

All in all, it makes for a pretty comprehensive offering from the British manufacturer and one that Triumph says is: “built to be at home on the track and a weapon on the road.”

The range-opening Street Triple S will cost £8,000 in its most basic from when it arrives at dealerships in April however pricing for the R and RS is yet to be confirmed.
