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

Each of our models come with their own unique 765cc engine set-up, ECU and tune, each tailored to deliver the character, power and performance best suited to the bikes style of ride and rider.

The new Street Triples also have an improved gear box with shorter 1st and 2nd gear ratios for better acceleration and revised geometry for slicker gear changes.


The engine set-up for the Street Triple S delivers more performance than the previous generation across the whole rev range, particularly low-down and in the mid-range.

The ‘S’ tune provides more peak power, increasing to 113PS @ 11,250rpm as well as an increase in peak torque, climbing to 73Nm @ 9,100rpm

Peak power is increased, delivering 123PS @ 11,700rpm and peak torque provides 77Nm @ 10,800rpm. 


The Street Triple has a revised airbox, providing much better induction sound on acceleration, for a deeper and richer Triumph Triple roar. The exhaust system delivers better performance and style, minimising its visual effect and reducing the bikes overall weight. 

There are two new silencer finishes, a beautifully designed ‘S’ model that perfectly suits its all-round riding focus and a more sportier styled silencer for the ‘R’ and ‘RS’ models, with crafted end caps and heat shield that enhance their performance looks.


The Street Triple R and RS are both fitted with a new slip-and-assist clutch system that brings a lighter action and helps reduce clutch lever effort for the rider. The new system delivers even more rider comfort and control and acts to reduce wheel hop and chatter from the rear end under heavy braking.



The Street Triple R and RS models feature an angle adjustable, full-colour 5” TFT instrument pack that allows riders to access the host of state-of-the-art rider focused technology available from the new on-board computer.

There are three different screen display styles to choose from, which alter the layout of the information. These are pre-set to the riding modes, with the style set for ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ modes focused more on the rev counter and gear position display, and the style set for ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ modes with a greater focus on the speedometer.

Riders can change which style is shown easily and intuitively on the move, through the unique ‘info tray’ at the bottom of the screen.

To ensure that the screen is readable in all weather and light conditions, each of the three styles can be selected with ‘High’ or ‘Auto’ contrast which uses an integrated ambient light sensor to select the most appropriate setting automatically.

And as if all that wasn’t enough, the Street Triple RS comes with an additional set of 3 more screen display styles, giving the rider a choice of 6 in total. The second set presents a more dynamic display theme and includes the option of a lap timer - exclusive to the ‘RS’.

On the Street Triple S there is a fully revised LCD instrument pack, which allows the rider to select the riding modes on the move or at a standstill, and access key information from the on-board computer, including odometer, fuel gauge, trip meter and journey distance.



The ride-by-wire throttle on each of the models delivers a crisper, more precise and more accurate throttle response, with improved on/off throttle transition. It also enables different throttle maps, which combined with the ABS and traction control settings give us up to 5 selectable riding modes.

Riding Modes

Linked to the ride-by-wire system, our models have much greater rider control with the introduction of riding modes. You can adjust throttle response, ABS and traction control settings at the touch of a button – either at a standstill, or on the move.

The Street Triple S delivers 2 modes with ‘road’ and ’rain’. The Street Triple R delivers 4 modes in total with the addition of ‘sport’ and a ‘rider programmable’ mode. The Street Triple RS delivers the highest level with 5 modes to choose from with the addition of a ‘track’ mode.

On-board Computer

The on-board computer gives the rider access to all key information via the TFT screen.

For the ‘S’ model these include, speedometer, rev counter, riding mode symbol, gear position display, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter and journey distance.

The ‘R’ ad ‘RS’ models present additional features including two trip displays, average and instantaneous fuel consumption, range to empty, riding mode selection, display style and contrast settings, service information, coolant temperature, warning symbol information and exclusively for the ‘RS’ model a lap timer.

Switch cubes with 5 way joystick

To navigate the new instruments on the Street Triple R and RS there are switch cubes with an intuitive 5-way joystick control that have been ergonomically optimised to be easy to use - either on the move, or at a standstill.

The Street Triple ‘S’ features the revised switch cubes set-up from the latest generation Speed Triple.


The anti-lock braking system brings a new level of control on all models. The ABS is also switchable on the Street Triple R and RS through the ‘rider’ programmable riding mode, which can be adjusted to suit road and track modes, or turned off completely if desired.

Switchable Traction Control

Traction control manages both the power and torque when traction is compromised, maximising rider safety  and control. The traction control is switchable on all models.

On the Street Triple S it can be managed via the instrument menu, by selecting ‘road’ or ‘rain’ riding modes – each with a dedicated traction control setting built in.

On the Street Triple R and RS models traction control can be managed through the ‘rider’ programmable riding mode, by selecting the desired traction control setting – ‘road’, ‘rain’, ‘track’, 'sport'  or ‘off’.

Gear position indicator

The Street Triple R and RS both feature a useful gear position indicator, accessible through the 5” full colour TFT instruments.

Quick shifter

The new Street Triple RS model is fitted with a quick shifter, allowing for clutchless upshifts of up to 2.5x quicker than a skilled rider using a standard clutch upshift.

The quick shifter feature can also be added as an accessory option on the Street Triple S and R.

DRL Headlight

The Street Triple line up all feature headlights designed for a more aggressive stance.

The Street Triple R and RS feature distinctive LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL*). These provide an eye catching light profile that makes the motorcycle easier to see out on the road, and delivers this with a lower energy consumption for greater long term durability. The DRL is an amazing 28x brighter than the previous generation bulb sidelight.

The Street Triple S features new LED position light headlights. The LED position light is 4.6x brighter than the previous generation bulb sidelight.

Lighter, more agile and better handling

Leaner and meaner than ever, the new Street Triple models are lighter than the previous generation,  holding their position as the lightest bikes in class.

The weight reduction, combined with the new higher power 765cc engine, delivers an amazing power to weight ratio that’s key to the game changing performance of the ‘Streets’, delivering a truly explosive, agile and exciting ride.


A gullwing rear swingarm has been specifically designed for the Street Triple range, resulting in increased longitudinal torsional stiffness, combined with an engineered reduction in lateral stiffness.

This maximises stability at the higher speeds achieved by the Street Triples, for greater rider confidence and safety for a more natural resistance to compression of the rear suspension unit under hard acceleration. This delivers tighter corner exit capability and a more precise chassis behaviour, which can be felt on both road and track.


The Street Triple range is fitted with a higher specification suspension all round, developed and tuned specifically for the new models.

The Street Triple S comes with Showa upside-down ø41mm separate function front forks with 110mm travel and a stepped preload-adjustable piggyback reservoir monoshock rear suspension unit.
