The newer iteration is improved and only borrows 10 percent of the components from its predecessor.
The 2017 models have bigger 765cc displacement engines compared to previously 675cc and features newly developed Nikasil plated aluminum barrels and improvised engine camshafts which allowed to gain lighter powerhouse shedding 1.5 kilos without compromising the performance. The same motor is tuned differently to produce 111 Bhp, 116 Bhp and 121 Bhp respectively along with 71 and 75 Nm of torque and all are mated to a 6-speed transmission system. Triumph didn’t mess around much with the frame instead the same structure, only strengthened now, has been utilized to keep the iconic persona of the motorcycles, it does get a new swingarm though.
To make the motorcycles cost effective in the segment, Triumph didn’t take out any luxury material it rather infused Street Triples with cool gizmos such as new TFT LCD instrument console, full LED headlamps, taillamps and trafficators. 310mm dual fronts discs and calipers developed by Brembo while the rear side gets a 220mm disc. ABS as standard, front suspension is switched with more premium Show forks and then there’s ride-by-wire for quicker and improved throttle response and slipper clutch. The S model comes with two riding model whereas the top of line RS gets 5 different riding modes with traction control.
