The heart of the 2023 Street Triple series remains its 765cc inline-three-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. However, Triumph has given the motor some tweaks to increase its output. In particular, the engine features new pistons, a shorter intake, connecting rods, and a fresh camshaft. The Street Triple 765 R can churn out 80Nm of torque at 9,500 rpm and 118.4 bhp at 11,500 rpm. The RS variant steps it up slightly with a torque output of 80Nm at 9,500 rpm and a peak power of 128.2 bhp at 12,000 rpm.
Chassis and hardware
In addition to performance improvements, the 2023 Street Triple models bring forth alterations to the chassis. Notably, a new gullwing swingarm works in tandem with Showa’s 41mm upside-down front forks. The R model features a rear suspension from Showa, while the RS version benefits from an Ohlins setup. Both bikes use Brembo brakes, with the RS variant boasting Brembo Stylema units with a 220mm rear disc and twin 310mm front discs.
Advanced electronic features
The 2023 lineup of Street Triple offers a host of electronic aids to make riding safer and more enjoyable. These include multiple riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport, Rider, and Track for the RS model), multi-level traction control, and cornering ABS. Other smart features include lean-sensitive traction control, a bi-directional quick-shifter, all-LED lighting, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 5-inch TFT instrument panel.
With a blend of advanced features, engine tweaks, and state-of-the-art electronics, the 2023 Triumph Street Triple 765 series offers a compelling package for Indian motorcycle enthusiasts. The bikes are not just visually appealing but also pack enough punch to set new standards in the street-naked motorcycle segment. With bookings now open, it won't be long before these bikes become a common sight on Indian roads.
