Triumph unleash next-gen Street Triple 765

Triumph have revealed major updates for the 2023 Street Triple 765, launching a three pronged attack on the naked performance sports bike market. An exclusive limited run Moto2 Edition will sit atop the range.

Delivering the highest specification and most focused Street Triple ever, it’s the closest you can get to a Moto2 racer for the road. Major updates to the R and RS variants set a new benchmark across the range.

Engine upgrades derived directly from the Moto2 race engine program result in a significant step up in performance on the new Street Triple R (88kW), plus category-leading power for the new RS and Moto2 Edition (96kW).

Increased torque and improved responsiveness also features across all three of the new 765 powered models. The limited edition Moto2 Speed Triple comes in two, eye-catching race-derived liveries.

There’s a choice of Triumph Racing Yellow with an Aluminium Silver rear sub-frame or Crystal White with Triumph Racing Yellow rear subframe, with official Moto2 branding on the tank, wheel, tail unit and silencer.

These limited edition machines offer a unique, race-inspired aesthetic as well as a completely new Street Triple riding experience. Each colour option is strictly capped at 765 examples worldwide.

Delivering 80Nm of torque, like the RS, the 765 Moto2 edition gains unique clip-on handlebars and an Öhlins fully adjustable fork which deliver super-sharp and precise handling for both road and track.

Carbon-fibre bodywork, a unique Moto2 start-up screen and an individually numbered top yoke mark this stunning machine as the ultimate Street Triple. The world-renowned engine is more responsive than ever too.

In addition to significant component updates, its shorter gear ratios deliver faster acceleration, while a new exhaust system increases flowrate. A new sporty single-sided silencer delivers the Street Triple’s renowned and distinctive hair-raising sound.

The 2023 Street Triple 765 R and RS both benefit from the new generation’s more focused and commanding riding position too, thanks to the new 12mm wider handlebars. The Moto2 version’s handlebars are 80mm lower and 50mm further forward.

Both the RS and the Moto2 Edition feature revised geometry, with a steeper rake and a raised back end for nimble, faster turning. Still as surefooted and planted as ever, these improvements sacrifice none of the confidence-inspiring attributes that the Street Triple has become renowned for.

With an accessible seat height of 826mm on the Street Triple R, 836mm on the Street Triple RS and 839mm Moto2 Edition, a new low seat option, with 3D net technology for enhanced comfort, can also be fitted to reduce the height by a further 28mm on all models.

For the Street Triple RS and Moto2 Edition, Triumph dealers can additionally lower the seat by a further 10mm if required through the implementation of a dedicated rear suspension linkage adaption.

In combination with the low seat, it provides a very accessible height of 798mm on the RS and 801mm on the Moto2 Edition.

Complementing the Street Triple’s ground-breaking chassis design, top quality suspension components from Showa and Öhlins have been carefully selected to suit each model. All are fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.

High performance Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tyres come fitted as standard to the Street Triple RS and the Moto2 Edition.  The Street Triple R comes with the versatile and well-regarded Continental ContiRoad tyres, which offer superb levels of grip in both wet and dry road conditions.

The 2023 Street Triple 765 range features some great advances in rider-focused technology. With improvements and refinements to the ABS, traction control and riding modes, performance and safety go hand-in-hand with comfort and convenience.

The new Street Triple 756 RS and Moto2 Edition feature 5.0-inch full-colour TFT instruments. The ergonomically optimised switch cubes and five-way joystick offer intuitive system navigation.

The My Triumph connectivity system is pre-enabled, meaning that Street Triple owners can access turn-by-turn navigation, phone control and music operation via an optional Bluetooth module a mobile app.

Triumph’s latest track-ready up and down quickshifter is fitted as standard to all three Street Triple models. Ideal for track and fast road riding, upshifts can be made without closing the throttle for a smooth, fast shift that won’t unsettle the bike.

Downshifts can also be made without the use of the clutch and without the need to blip the throttle to match the gear and engine speeds as this process is automatically carried out by the 2023 Street Triple.

Triumph’s slip and assist clutch, fitted to all three Street Triple models, ensures a light and consistent lever feel for enhanced comfort and control on the road, particularly useful in the stop/start scenario of an urban commute.

Lighting is all-LED across all three models. On the RS and Moto2 Edition these feature a distinctively shaped DRL (daytime running light) incorporated into the headlights, where market legislation permits.

The Street Triple R features a similarly distinctive lighting signature delivered through position lights. Self-cancelling indicators are fitted as standard.

Completely redesigned, the Street Triple’s sharper and more focused style is the result of attention to a great number of details.

The new 15-litre fuel tank has integrated side panels with an angular design that aligns beautifully with the sharper radiator cowls, further complemented by a new headlight finisher that also incorporates the air intake.

The rear end of the new Street Triple is no less exceptional, with a sporty, upswept design to give a focused, nose-down attitude. The RS features a colour-coded seat cowl with an interchangeable pillion seat – making switching between different configurations easy.

The Street Triple R is available in two contemporary colours: Silver Ice with Storm Grey and Yellow graphics or Crystal White with Storm Grey and Lithium Flame graphics.

For the Street Triple RS, there’s a choice of three bold and distinctive paint schemes; Silver Ice with Baja Orange and Storm Grey graphics, Carnival Red with Carbon Black and Aluminium Silver graphics or Cosmic Yellow with Carbon Black and Aluminium Silver graphics.
