Triumph have begun a UK dealership tour for their new Street Triple 765R and RS which will give customers the chance to see both models up close.

Running until March 19, visitors can also have their picture taken on a special tilted stand to replicate getting their knee down.

Devron Boulton, General Manager of Triumph GB said “We’ve seen huge interest in the new bikes. Indeed, the Street Triple 765 Moto2 Edition has already completely sold out in the UK.

“If you are interested in the new Street Triple range, we would encourage you to head down to your participating dealership and place a deposit to secure one of the first R or RS models in the country. 

“The Street Triple Showcase is a chance to view our new Street Triple 765 range in the flesh before its official release to dealerships, and who doesn’t want to snap a selfie as you hit the perfect apex.”

The tour began on January 25 2023 at Peterborough Triumph, before heading on to Somerset.

Prices begin at £9595 for the R, and £11,295 for the RS. Visit for more information.

Street racer: Moto2 Edition Triumph brings racing poise to the road

First published on 03 November 2022 by Ben Clarke

Triumph have unveiled a new limited-edition version of the Street Triple to celebrate their continuing role as engine supplier to the second tier of GP racing.

The Street Triple Moto2 Edition starts life as a more powerful, updated version of the 765 Street Triple RS, which is made more special with the addition of fully adjustable Öhlins, Brembo Stylema brakes, clip-on bars and a paintjob fit for the racetrack.

Behind the glitz and glamour Triumph have been working hard to extract more power from the three-cylinder engine, which now puts out just over 128bhp. To achieve this, they have made changes to the combustion chamber, used new pistons and increased cylinder pressure limits – all so they can up the compression ratio without affecting reliability.

“We’ve developed a new engine for Moto2 offering more to the riders for next season,” explains Triumph Chief Engineer, Stuart Wood. “We’ve taken the learning from that into the road bikes, so we’ve improved the airflow through the engine, too.

“We’ve got new intake ports, new intake trumpets, a more free-flowing exhaust system. We’ve gone from two catalysts down to one and made the pipes more open.”

All of these engine changes have also been carried over to the Street Triple RS (see below) but the Moto2 Edition is set apart by its official branding, carbon bodywork and Moto2 start-up screen on its TFT dash.

As well as the new Öhlins forks, Triumph have worked on the handling by tweaking the bike’s geometry. Headstock angle and trail have both been reduced and the rear end has been jacked up. That also means a longer shock that operates in a slightly different range of its stroke.

These chassis changes mean the seat height is up significantly to 839mm on the Moto2 (compared to 825mm on the previous RS). But if that’s a dealbreaker, Triumph offer a lower seat and suspension option that combined take the seat height to 801mm.

The sportier clip-on handlebars sit 80mm lower and 50mm further forward than the flat bars on all other Street Triple models, accentuating this effect. Triumph say all this adds up to handling that feels light, poised and agile.

There are also electronic updates including lean-sensitive traction and ABS that’s tailored to each riding mode – of which there are now more to choose from – up and down quickshifter and wheelie control. You also get cruise control.

The RS and Moto2 models both now come on Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tyres, while the base spec R is shod with Continental Contiroad rubber.

Just 765 examples will be built in each colour scheme (retina-burning yellow or white with yellow details) with their number engraved on the top yoke. The Moto2 Edition went on sale last week at the final round on the GP calendar and will hit dealers in February. It costs £13,795.

If the Moto2 Edition is a little rich for your blood perhaps the new R or RS would fit the bill. The RS gets all the same engine and electronic updates as the Moto2 – including that extra power, switchable lean-sensitive ABS and traction control and up-and-down quickshifter – but with Showa forks and a less aggressive colour scheme. The RS costs £11,295.

Or if that’s still too much bling (and expense) for you, consider the new R model. That gets lower suspension spec – but still Showa up front and Öhlins at the rear – and a less snazzy dash that you might recognise from the popular Trident model.

The R also makes slightly less power than its stablemates at 118.4bhp but is still incredibly well spec’d with lean sensitive electronic goodies – although it has one fewer riding mode.

The most impressive part is that you get all this for just £9595 or £100 more than the old one. That’s a hell of a lot of bike for the money.
