2017 Triumph Street Triple lineup

When Triumph launched its Street Triple in late 2007, the naked out of Hinckley mirrored its older brother, the Speed Triple 1050. The Street Triple arrived with the 675cc inline-three transplanted from the Daytona 675 supersport, but the powerplant was retuned for better street manners.

The Street Triple was the perfect answer for those seeking a mid-weight streetfighter hooligan, and the motorcycle morphed throughout the years, the most significant styling upgrade arriving in 2012 when Triumph switched the bumble-bee circular headlights to angular ones.

Throughout those years, the same 675cc inline-three remained, and the bike was offered after 2009 as a base or R model, which included updated brakes and adjustable Kayaba suspension.

Except for the Rx released in 2015 with a quickshifter, new seat and wheels, the Street Triple lineup has remained relatively stagnant. But this changes for 2017 with the introduction of a totally revised Street Triple that is powered by the all-new 765cc inline-three engine that features over 80 new parts.

The 2017 Triumph Street Triple will be available in three versions: S, R, and RS. Each model is tweaked for its intended use, from urban traveling (S), to sport (R), to all-out track machine (RS). Each version has a different engine tune for varying horsepower; the S makes 111 horsepower, the R 116, and the RS 121.

All three motors feature a lighter, freer flowing exhaust, revised air box, revised gearbox (shorter 1st and 2nd gear ratios), and new slipper clutch.

The 2017 Triumph Street Triple motorcycles are about 4.5 lbs lighter than the outgoing 2016 model, and arrive with more aggressive styling, including the Speed Triple’s “nose-down” attitude; ride-by-wire throttle with up to five riding modes on the RS; a gullwing rear swingarm; higher-spec suspension and brakes; and 5” TFT instrument panels.

Following are the Fast Facts of each 2017 Triumph Street Triple model.
