WE R FAMILY

One of Triumph’s worst kept secrets has finally been revealed – the new bombastic 765cc Street Triple family…

When the last round of big motorcycle shows opened their doors, we were surprised that there was no new Street Triple revealed. We knew one was coming, and we knew it’d be a larger capacity than 675cc, but nothing was forthcoming from the British manufacturer.

A lavish unveiling launch at the beginning of January in dat dere London finally allayed our concerns with not one, but three new versions of the Street Triple – the S, the R and the RS.

All three are powered by an uprated, redesigned and larger capacity three-cylinder engine.

More than 80 parts are new, including the crank and the Nikasil plated aluminium (increased bore & stroke) barrels.

All three versions have different states of tune, mostly through different cranks, although much of it will be attended to through the ECU. The vanilla ‘S’ model produces a claimed 111bhp at the crank, with 73Nm of torque. The ‘R’ hits 116bhp with an extra 4Nm of torque added on, while the ‘RS’ nets a 121bhp output married to the same 77Nm you get with the R. Interestingly, the R makes its maximum power output at 12,000rpm while the RS makes its 300rpm earlier.

It’s clear that the extra cubes, despite Euro 4 restrictions, have added some much needed pep to the ST’s go-show especially considering that its main rivals have been running larger lumps for a few years already. Ensuring one stays sunny-side up is a new traction-control system, which on the S can be toggled to match its two rider modes (run by the new ride-by-wire throttle) of ‘road’ and ‘rain’. The other two get extra modes to play with, namely ‘track’, ‘sport’ or ‘off’, and there’s a rider-programmable mode option, too. considering that its main rivals have been running larger lumps for a few years already.
