Introducing the all-new Street Triple for 2017
So, the news was brought to us a couple of weeks ago, that Triumph were launching a brand-new Street Triple, and we’ve been patiently waiting for the big announcement. Well it’s finally here! Or should we say, they are finally here.
Introducing the new Street Triple range for 2017, which is being made available in three different versions, the Street Triple S, R and RS. Triumph has the described the new range as being the most ‘exciting, dynamic, agile, and intuitive performing street bikes’ that the company has ever produced.
As most of you will be aware, the Street bikes are well-known for their level of power and quality. Due to this, Triumph have decided that each new bike should come with a unique level of power, performance, technology, and suspension, whilst all featuring a Daytona derived 765-cc triple engine.
Street Triple S
The new Street Triple S has been described as the new street champion, which produces 113 PS at 11,250 rpm and 73 Nm of peak torque at 11,250 rpm. Not bad! In addition, the S receives front and rear showa suspension, ABS and switchable traction control, and an all-new ‘gullwing’ swing arm.
Moreover, the Triple S provides the option of two different riding modes including road and rain, LED light bulb headlights and a sporty twin-seat. Of course, we must expect an upgraded LCD instrument panel which features an on-board computer offering fuel gauge, a trip meter, an odometer, and highlights journey distance. Sounds good to us!
Furthermore, the Street Triple S is also offered in an A2 licence version which carries a 660-cc engine, along with the majority of the same features as the S.
Street Triple R
The stunning Street Triple R offers 118 PS at 12,000 rpm, whilst also delivering 77 Nm of peak torque at 9,400 rpm. In comparison to the Triple S, the Triple R receives all the same features. However, the R gains several additional specifications including assist and slip clutch, an additional two riding modes including sport and rider, a 5-inch full-colour TFT instrument panel and Bremo M432 monobloc front brake calipers with radical master cylinder.
Furthermore, the Triple R gains premium seat stitching and vinyl, a low seat height (optional), self-cancelling indicators, DRL headlights and new switch cubes with 5-way joystick control.
Street Triple RS
As you can imagine, the RS receives the same features as the R, along with numerous supplementary features. You can expect 123 PS at 11,700 rpm and 77 Nm peak torque at 10,800 rpm. In addition, the Triple RS gains Bremo M50 monobloc front brake calipers, fully adjustable showa big piston fork front suspension and the additional track riding mode.
The Triple RS carries a matte silver painted aluminium rear sub frame with a lower chain guard, and has Ohlin’s fully-adjustable piggyback reservoir RSU quickshifter.
