2017 Triumph Street Triple RS

Triumph has long been a dependable standard in the world of motorcycles. And their Street Triple has, since its initial release, become one of the brand’s staple bikes. As it turns out, this is the bike’s 10-year anniversary. So, to celebrate, Triumph decided to do something special. They released a new line of Street Triple motorcycles that feature a 765cc engine – instead of the normal 675cc one – which includes this premium version, the RS.

The RS version of this bike has a maximum horsepower of 121 and can produce up to 57 foot-pounds of torque, which is pretty incredible considering that this bike is actually a tad bit lighter than last year’s release – which only offered 106HP and 50.2 ft-lbs of torque. The updated bike also features Brembo M50 monobloc front brake calipers, fully-adjustable Showa “big-piston” forks, an Öhlins STX40 fully adjustable rear monoshock, and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires. On top of that, the RS also offers a “track” riding mode, an onboard lap timer, and a quickshifter. All in all, this is the most aggressive Street Triple that Triumph has ever built. The price has yet to be announced, but you can look forward to picking one up sometime in the near future. [Purchase]
