Triumph Street Triple 765 RS
It’s been ten years since Triumph unveiled the original Street Triple, a design and powerful ride that became an instant hit. The fresh 2017 model looks like it’s all set to do great things. Available in three main versions, the new 765cc range starts off at £8000 for the S model, with the R adding a few extra thrills to the recipe. But it’s the Street Triple RS. we all daydream about.
The most powerful, lightest, most electronically advanced and powerful Street Triple ever packs a 765cc liquid-cooled, 12-valve, DOHC, in-line triple; it develops 121 hp and 56.8 lbft of torque, which is 16% more than the previous model. Developed from the Daytona engine, the new 765cc Street Triple engine has more than 80 new parts including new crank, pistons, and Nikasil plated aluminum barrels, and bespoke cams
Light-years ahead of the 2016 model, this bike benefits from serious engine upgrades as well as various electronic components and tweaks. Please note the 5-inch TFT color dash, ride-by-wire throttle, five rider modes, traction control, quickshifter, and switchable multi-mode ABS. Oh, yeah!
The RS is primarily a road bike, but Triumph invites riders to hit the track and see how this bike behaves – ABS modes and Pirelli Supercorsa SP tires come as standard. This is everything we’ve ever hoped for from Triumph, and the exterior finishes seem to match t he outrageous technical details.
