Here is the full rundown on the three versions of the new road-warrior unveiled this evening.
How do you update a bike that many consider to be a classic? If you’re Triumph you stay true to the styling, lose some weight and add a little more power. Simple.
Three versions of the new naked have been announced. The basic, base build is the Street Triple S, the R is the one that begins to bring the Sport credentials to the fore and the RS? That’s the one for bombing around the B-roads on before hitting the track.

Triumph Street Triple RS:
Really Sporty… Or Rapidly Sexy… Or something like that. The Triumph Street Triple RS spits our 116bhp, has a quickshifter out of the crate, Show forks, Ohlins shocks and Brembo stoppers. Oh and that LCD dash? That comes with six different layouts for varying types of riding.
Additional to Street Triple R
- 123 PS at 11,700 RPM
- 77 NM peak torque at 10,800rpm
- Brembo M50 monobloc front brake calipers

But what about price we hear you say? Well, nothing is announced for the R or RS but the S is listed as being available for £8,000 on the road. Which likely means that the R and RS will be right up there within Yamaha MT10 territory.
So if you’re in the market for aggressively-but-distinctively styled naked street bikes, you’ve got a choice to make!
