Triumph launches a 2018 Street Triple 765


Triumph unveiled its long-awaited remake of its most popular model line, the Street Triple, with a new 765 cc engine in three different models.

Still retaining the Street Triple name, the bike will come in S, R and RS trim. In the United States, pricing starts at $9,900 for the S model, so basically we’re getting a replacement for a popular model that is more powerful, adds more features and, according to Triumph, actually weighs a few pounds less, without taking a huge jump in price.

Triumph Street Triple S

The S produces a peak 111 horsepower at 11,250 rpm, according to Triumph. It has a 41 mm Showa separate-function inverted fork in front and Showa shock adjustable for preload only at the rear. Like the other models, Triumph claims a dry weight of 366 pounds (and I suspect that’s very dry, indeed). You get ABS, ride-by-wire throttle, traction control and Rain and Road riding modes on all three models, but unlike the other two, the S lacks the TFT panel and makes do with an LCD screen for displaying information like the current Street Triple.

Triumph Street Triple R

Stepping up to the R gets you 116 horsepower at 12,000 rpm, upgraded and fully adjustable Showa suspension front and rear, a slip-and-assist clutch and the ability to turn off ABS. The R also adds more rider modes that are programmable. Different color treatments, seat stitching and the full-color TFT panel are obvious signs to show the world you stepped up to the next level, while convenience features include self-canceling turn signals.

Triumph Street Triple RS

The RS is the track-ready Street Triple, and not just because it puts out the most horsepower, with 121 at 11,700 rpm. It also comes with a quickshifter, lap timer, an additional riding mode for the track and a fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock.
