    Triumph’s 2017 Street Triple has broken cover, and the new bike promises to be bigger and better than ever.

    The big news is its 765cc engine, with the increase coming as a result of increases in the bore and stroke on the iconic three-cylinder motor, with Triumph using a new crank, pistons, and barrels in its construction.

    Three versions will be available – S, R and RS.

    The R and RS get a TFT dash and slipper clutch as standard, while the RS also quickshifter and premium components, including fully adjustable Showa big-piston forks, a Öhlins TTX 40 shock, Brembo M50 four-piston caliper brakes and five riding modes.

    The Street Triple R gets four riding modes and features separate-function Showa big-piston forks, a Showa rear shock and Brembo M4.32 four-piston calipers.

    The base model Street Triple S receives just two riding modes, separate-function Showa forks, a preload-adjustable Showa rear shock and two-piston front brakes.
