More power, better driveability and fancier electronics

The Triumph Street Triples are recognised as the best middleweight nakeds that one could get their hands on. They have been fast, sharp and joyful. For 2023, the British marque has upped the ante for its famed naked motorcycle series and introduced a new limited edition trim, called the Moto2 edition. Here’s what each of them are now packing:

Street Triple Moto2

  • Triumph's Moto2 learnings put into developing more power from the 765cc motor.
  • Output now stands at 130PS and 80Nm, making it the most powerful naked in its segment.
  • Gets top-spec Ohlins fully-adjustable suspension at both ends.
  • Brembo Stylema calipers anchor the Moto2 edition.
  • Latest-gen Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa V3s to provide ultimate traction.
  • Gets lowered clip-on bars and a taller seat height for an attacking stance.
  • Two special liveries, each replete with carbon fibre parts and Moto2 branding.
  • Only 765 units of each colour will be made.

2023 Street Triple RS

  • Same 130PS and 80Nm as the Moto2 edition, 7PS and 1Nm more than older gen RS.
  • Shorter gear ratios for better driveability.
  • No change in suspension or tyres but gets the Stylemas from the Moto2 edition.
  • A slightly wider handlebar increases rider controllability.
  • Next-gen lean-sensitive traction control, cornering ABS and improved riding modes with new throttle maps.
  • Subtle tweaks to the styling include a new headlight cowl, revised belly section, radiator shrouds and a sharper tail section.
  • Comes in three brighter and more engaging colour schemes.

2023 Street Triple R

  • Engine updates bump up performance to 120PS and 80Nm, 3PS and 1Nm more than previous gen R.
  • No update in the hardware department.
  • Gets the same suite of IMU-aided electronic rider aids as the new RS.
  • It now comes with a Rider customisable riding mode.
  • The same split LCD-TFT digital display as the Trident 660.
  • Abroad-spec variant gets Continental ContiRoad tyres, moving on from the trusty Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 rubber. 

Triumph is expected to roll out these updated Street Triples in Europe by February 2023. So, expect the bikes to rock up on our shores by around May. Prices for the updated R and RS are expected to go up by around Rs 50,000-Rs 75,000. Considering the kit and tech on offer now, it should make the riding experience even more thrilling.
