For 2017 Triumph have massively updated the Street Triple with a new 765cc triple-cylinder offering with a bore and stroke of 78 x 53.4mm, 12.65:1 compression ratio with Ride-by-Wire, including traction control and customisable Rider Modes.
Gearbox geometry has also been revised, with shorter first and second gear ratios, while the R (and RS) model features a new slip and assist clutch, for a lighter lever action and smoother engine braking while riding aggressively.

The Street Triple R and RS also feature new distinctive LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), all new bodywork, flyscreen, radiator, cowls and new integrated air intake. In addition, the seat has been redesigned and restyled to deliver a sharper, sportier separate twin seat set-up
Also featured is an all-new, angle adjustable 5in TFT colour instrument display, allowing riders to access the new on-board computer, with up to three different screen display styles to choose from, pre-set to the riding modes and changeable easily on the move. To navigate the new instruments on the Street Triple R and RS there is all-new switch cubes with an intuitive 5-way joystick control that have been ergonomically optimised.
Suspension is 41mm Showa seperate function big-piston forks, with adjustable compression and rebound damping, and preload, while the Showa rear monoshock offers preload, compression and rebound damping. Brakes are Brembo M4.32 four-piston calipers with 310mm floating rotors, while a rear Brembo single-piston caliper is matched to a 220mm fixed rotor. ABS is standard fitment.
