The all-new Street Triple 765 unveiled
Triumph has unveiled an all new range of Street Triple bikes, with an all-new 765cc 3-cylinder engine derived from the Daytona racer, in three different variatons, each with their own tailored tunings for varied levels of performance, technology and suspension. The three variations are to be known as the Street Triple S, Street Triple R and Street Triple RS, each with their own power and torque outputs. The S produces 111bhp and 73Nm, the R is capable of 116bhp and 77Nm, and the all-out RS can put out 121bhp and 77Nm. Take your pick. The new engine has more than 80 new parts which includes Nikasil plated aluminium barrels and an increased bore and stroke, all of which aims for improved performance, especially low-down and in the mid-range. On the R and RS models, there is a new slip and assist set up as well. If you want clutchless upshifts, the RS gets a quick shifter as standard, but its an optional extra on the S and R models.New tech on the Street Triple range includes a new ride-by-wire throttle with upto five riding modes \: Road, Rain, Sport, Rider Programmable and Track. That last mode is available only on the RS while S only gets Road and Rain modes. The new five inch TFT instrument panel is angle-adjustable on the R and RS while the S gets the LCD instrument pack from the current gen Speed Triple. In order to navigate the different settings and displays on the R and RS, there are new switch cubes and a 5-way joystick control.Lighter than the previous gen and with the more powerful engine, the all-new Street Triple range is guaranteed to offer a more explosive ride. It also gets an all-new gulping rear swingarm that Triumph say has been specifically designed for the new models, for better stability at higher speeds and tighter corner exit capability. The suspension specs, brake set-ups and tyre specs have also been upped across the range to better suit the new level of performance.There is a cosmetic improvement too, to the new street bikes, with Triumph saying that the 2017 Street Triple has all new bodywork, flyscreen, radiator, cowls and new integrated air intake, with the new seats restyled for a sportier set up.While prices for the new Street Triple 765 start from £8,000 (Rs 6.66 lakh) as listed on their UK website, we expect the new ranges price to start from around Rs 9 lakh. While there is no clear launch date, we expect there will not be much of a delay before the new bikes to come to our shores.
