UPDATED Meta-Review: Testing the Triumph Street Triple 2017!

The worldwide launch of the brand-new-for-2017 Triumph Street Triple 765cc is taking place on Monday 13th of February…

And we’ll be watching the social media channels and newswires to see just what those lucky journalists think of the replacement for the ten year old 675cc Street Triple.

Three versions of the new Street Triple will be made available – all with differing levels of specification and finish. The ‘S’ will be the entry level machine, followed by the middle-of-the-range (and probably most popular) ‘R’ and then topped-off by the super, track-focused ‘RS’.

If that sounds like the kind of bike you’ve been hoping for then keep checking back throughout the day for all of the latest updates. After all, why scour the web and social channels when you can just come to Motofire and get it all from one place…

Latest Updates:

Monday 13th February:


Can’t think of a better way to end today’s little round-up. Now, onto the Ducati SuperSport.


If you were waiting for thirty-seven minute review of wind-noise and rambling under a lid – BUT with some instant impressions of the new Street Triple RS – then you’re in luck.


It may *just* be the new favourite midweight naked, but even at that competitive price and with all of that fancy kit, it still can’t beat the rain.

The prices for the Street Triple range are in… And they are looking VERY competitive.

That’s £9,900 for the RS! Which is a LOT of bike for the money.

What’s that? You’re wondering what the Street Triple RS sounds like on track? Here’s your answer…

The first written review is in (ish). As would appear to be the way these days, insurance company Bennetts have appended a generic overview of the bikes with a quick sentence from their rider for the launch event.

It’s in the final paragraph if you want to read it in full, but the take away quotes from the first ride of the Triumph Street Triple RS are probably these,

“Triumph have taken the Street Triple and made it better.”


“we’re not really pushing it, but you can tell straight away that there’s more top end on this bike. In fact, it makes be wonder why you’d want the big Speed Triple at all.”

Riders have been up and out already… And it’s not taken long to form some snap opinions…


Sunday 12th February:

Oh, how the other half live eh? Normal round olives just aren’t good enough!

Not just olives. Spherical olives. #streettriple765

    Benjamin and I both tear ride a 675R Daytona and a Street Triple and we both loved them. I want to see an updated Daytona now.

    I’ve read a bunch of contradictory articles online, but when will the Striple RS be actually be available for us mortals to actually buy?

    Good question, and sadly one without a definite answer. Triumph have told us to ‘expect sometime in the Spring’ but there’s no concrete in-showroom date yet.

    My local dealer will have a RS in April. I heard that the r will be coming in June and the S later at the end of summer.
