The Street Triple 765 is a highly impressive motorcycle, one that recently won our comparison review with the Kawasaki Z900. However, all of this is has been attained by the entry spec Street Triple-S model. Globally, Triumph sells the Street Triple in three trims, but only the Street Triple S is currently available in India. That’s about to change soon with the unveil of the range topping Street Triple 765 RS. The Street Triple 765 RS not only comes with significantly more kit than the base S model but it also gets a higher state of engine tune. Where the S creates a well 113hp and 73Nm, the RS makes 123hp and 77Nm. Complementing the extra power is a set of range topping Brembo M50 brakes, commonly seen on high-spec, litre-class superbikes. Suspension sees a big renovation as well, with Showa’s Big Piston forks up front and an Ohlins back shock.
Triumph is clear that the Street Triple 765 RS is as serious about track riding as road performance and proves it through the use of super-sticky, Pirelli Supercars tyres which are also usually reserved for the most high performance motorcycles. Visually, the 765 RS gets a quite a few differentiators that go beyond the lovely frozen matt color scheme. The first of these is a rear seat cowl, but the bigger upgrade comes in the rich, full color LCD instrument screen facing the rider. The bike also offers five riding modes and multiple viewing modes for the digital display. When we first rode the Street Triple 765 RS in Spain earlier this year (LINK) Triumph suggested that all three models would eventually make it to India. However, it now appears that Triumph will only bring in the RS as it currently doesn’t see the space for the mid-spec R model. Considering all the top shelf components on offer, expect the Street Triple 765 RS to cost significantly more than the S, which retails at Rs.8.7 lakh ex-showroom Mumbai. An ex-showroom price at around the Rs 10.5-11 lakh mark is fair to expect
