Triumph has once again refined its razor-sharp middleweight naked bike, the Street Triple, with this year’s iteration bringing more power, a lighter and racier chassis and a healthy dose of purposeful tech and equipment upgrades.
Last month, INFO MOTO trialed the up-spec RS variant on the winding roads from Adelaide to The Bend Motorsport Park – perhaps the ideal location to see just how the revised Streety fares in the increasingly competitive naked bike space. Watch all the action in our video review here!
2023 Triumph Street Triple range specs
Triumph has officially launched its new-generation 2023 Street Triple 765 range, with the entry-level R variant checking in from $18,090 rideaway alongside the high-spec RS ($20,590) and limited-run, and now sold out, Moto2 Edition ($25,290).
For reference, the outgoing Street Triple range was priced from $18,140 for the R and $19,950 for the RS, meaning that the new base variant is slightly less expensive (-$50) than the bike it replaces while big upgrades have resulted in a modest price rise (+$640) for the RS.
New Triumph motorcycles come standard with a two-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, and service intervals are set at 10,000km for the new Street Triple line-up.
The 2023 Street Triple range sees significant performance upgrades and new tech features to compliment its sharpened styling package.
Carrying over is a familiar 765cc triple-cylinder engine, however, internal upgrades have been made to lift power outputs on all three models.
The base R variant generates a healthy 88kW and 80Nm which is up 3kW/3Nm compared to its predecessor.
Meanwhile, the up-spec RS and Moto2 Edition each manage 96kW and 80Nm equating to an approximate 5kW/1Nm boost in output.
Standard for 2023 is revised gearing, a ‘freer-flowing’ exhaust system, an inertial measurement unit (IMU) for optimised cornering ABS, traction control and rider modes, revised ergonomics with wider handlebars (+12mm), Continental ContiRoad tyres and a new up/down quickshifter fitted as standard.
Stepping up to the RS adds an upgraded 5.0-inch TFT dash, higher-spec Brembo Stylema brakes with 310mm discs, Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres and full LED lighting with daytime running lights.
Along with the bespoke colours and graphics with official ‘Moto2’ branding, the Street Triple Moto2 Edition gains fully-adjustable Ohlins suspension at each end, clip-on handlebars and carbon-fibre bodywork pieces, among other touches.
As standard the Street Triple comes with 41mm Showa forks and a Showa monoshock, however, the RS swaps the Showa rear-end for an Ohlins piggy-back setup. The full Ohlins treatment is reserved for the limited Moto2 Edition.
Seat heights are 826mm on the Street Triple R, 836mm on the RS and 839mm for the Moto2 Edition, a low seat option can be fitted to reduce the height by a further 28mm on all models.
All three variants are equipped a 15-litre fuel tank, which when filled, results in a weight of 189 kilograms for the base R, or 188kg for the RS and Moto2 Edition.
