For 2023 Triumph has completely updated the range of Street Triples, starting with the aesthetics, with the more compact and angular 15-litre tank, and a new riding position with wider handlebars. Also the engine has been updated: for the R version the power rises to 120 HP at 11,500 rpm, and the torque to 80 Nm at 9,500 rpm, while as regards the chassis, it mounts Showa suspensions, both adjustable, with 41 mm BBF fork and shock absorber monoshock, and braking is entrusted to Brembo: double 310 mm discs with M4.32 monobloc calipers. Standard features are the up/down electronic gearbox, 4 driving modes, cornering traction control (4 levels, which can be deactivated) and ABS Cornering (with variable action depending on the driving mode) and wheelie control. The lights are full LED.
And then there is the fiercest RS, which offers greater performance and numerous valuable components compared to the “R”. It shares the same 765cc in-line three-cylinder engine as its sibling, but for it the power is 130 HP at 12,000 rpm. and peak torque and 80 Nm at 9,500 rpm. The chassis, the braking system, the standard equipment also change… but let’s not dwell on it now.
