The range-topping Triumph Street Triple 765 RS features more power and top-shelf components
The Triumph Street Triple 765 RS is an impressive bike. It also performed incredibly well in the 2017 Autocar Track Day, putting a lap time just 4s off a new-age liter-class sportbike. However, this all is has been attained from the entrance spec Street S version. Only the Street Triple S is currently available in India, although Triumph sells the Street Triple in 3 trims. That is about to change with the introduction of the range-topping Street Triple 765 RS.
The Street Triple 765 RS not just comes with considerably more kit compared to the S model but in addition, it has a state of engine tune. Where the S generates a Healthful 113hp and 73Nm, the RS creates 123hp and 77Nm. Complementing the extra power is a set of this scope topping Brembo M50 brakes, commonly seen on liter-class superbikes. Suspension sees an upgrade using Showa’s Big Piston forks up front along with an Ohlins rear shock. Triumph is apparent that the Street Triple 765 RS is serious about track riding as street performance and proves it via the use of super-sticky.
The 765 RS gets a quite a few differentiators that go past the matt color scheme that is beautiful. The first of these is a back seat cowl, but the bigger update comes in the rich, full-color LCD tool screen facing the rider. The bicycle also offers five riding modes and several modes for the electronic display.
When we first rode the Street Triple 765 RS in Spain earlier this season (hyperlink) Triumph indicated that all three versions would finally make it to India. However, it now appears because it does not observe the space for the R version that Triumph will bring about the RS.
