All-new RS makes its on-screen debut.
Triumph’s Street Triple RS gets top billing when it appears in the upcoming action film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
The DC Comics-inspired movie tells the story of characters; Harley Quinn, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya, who form an alliance to eliminate self-loving Gotham City villain, Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor).
The three-cylinder middleweight Triumph will be ridden by the crossbow-wielding Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and can be seen in the latest trailer (above) towing Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) towards the rear of a speeding car.
In more important news, we have the all-new Triumph Street Triple RS in the INFO MOTO garage as we speak and will be monoing the thing all over the shop in an upcoming review video.
A bit about the RS: the bike received a number of updates for 2020, including revised styling, an updated TFT dash and improved midrange, thanks to a new exhaust cam.
INFO MOTO review upcoming.
As previously reported, two Triumph models will also be used for the next James Bond instalment, No Time To Die.
The 25th Bond flick will feature a Tiger 900 and Scrambler 1200, which have been specially prepared by Triumph’s design workshop team.
A stunt team from No Time To Die worked closely with Triumph to configure several feature motorcycles, built to withstand the dynamic action sequences.
