British manufacturer Triumph have revealed the updated Street Triple RS for 2020, which they claim is lighter and more powerful than the outgoing model.
The 765cc three-cylinder engine has been updated to meet the upcoming Euro5 emissions regulations, while also gaining a claimed 9% more mid-range torque thanks to lessons learned from Triumph’s first season as the sole engine supplier for Moto2. Peak torque is no 79Nm, while power remains the same at 121bhp. Triumph also claim improved throttle response, thanks to a lighter crankshaft.
Suspension remains the same as the outgoing model, with an Ohlins rear shock and Show big piston forks, both of which are fully adjustable.
Triumph have also given the Street Triple a makeover, with sharper lines and new LED headlights. There are also more red graphics, just in case you were in any doubt about the improved performance of the new model. Or more yellow graphics if you opt for the black paint scheme.
The new RS will cost £10,300. £400 more than the outgoing model.
