Focus on the new Triumph Street Triple R


Triumph recently announced the all-new Street Triple family with 3 distinct new models to suit every rider and style – the all-new Street Triple S, Street Triple R and Street Triple RS.  Each with a unique level of power, performance, technology and suspension. Each with their own distinctive attitude, from addictive everyday fun to full track weapon.  Here we’re going to focus on the mid-range R version.


Like the other models in the range, the Street Triple R comes with the all-new 765cc engine derived from the celebrated Triumph Daytona.  The R punches out 118PS at 12,000 rpm – a healthy 11.3% increase compared to the previous generation bike – and comes with a lighter, freer flowing exhaust, revised air box, gearbox and new slip and assist clutch.

Street Triple R
Taking the performance, specification and finish to an even higher level, built to be the definitive street fighter with a specification and set up for focused road riding.

More power, performance, torque and a richer triple soundtrack

Developed from the celebrated race bred ‘Daytona’ engine, the new 765cc Street Triple engine delivers a major step up in power and torque. With more than 80 new parts including new crank, pistons and Nikasil plated aluminium barrels and an increased bore and stroke. The result is a significant advance in performance, particularly low-down and in the mid-range.

The ‘R’ tune, with its own model-specific crankshaft, increases peak power by up to 11.3% over the previous ‘R’ model, delivering 118PS @ 12,000rpm, and delivers a 13% increase in peak torque at 77Nm @ 9,400rpm.

There are riding modes on all models to help the rider better harness the increased power and torque in every riding condition. A richer sound track, from a lighter, free flowing exhaust and revised airbox delivers an intoxicating and more distinctive induction howl.

Stronger than ever acceleration and slicker gear changes are achieved through a combination of revised gearbox geometry and shorter 1st and 2nd gear ratios. In addition, on the R and RS models, a new slip and assist clutch set up delivers lighter clutch action and reduced lever effort for more control and riding comfort.

Rider focused technology

The new Street Triple line up represents a major evolution in state of the art rider focused technology for maximum control and safety.

For a crisper, more precise and more accurate throttle response, with improved on/off throttle transition. Enabling different throttle maps, which combined with the ABS and traction control settings give up to five riding modes.

Full colour adjustable TFT instruments
The Street Triple R features an all-new, angle adjustable colour 5” TFT instruments for riders to access the new on-board computer. There are three different screen display styles to choose from, pre-set to the riding modes and changeable easily on the move. To ensure that the screen is readable in all weather and light conditions, each of the three styles can be selected with ‘High’ or ‘Low’ contrast.


New on-board computer
For the ‘R’ model this delivers a speedometer, rev counter, riding mode symbol, gear position display, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter and journey distance. Plus two trip displays, average and instantaneous fuel consumption, range to empty, riding mode selection, display style and contrast settings, service information, coolant temperature, and warning symbol information.
