2023 Triumph Street Triple R RS Launch
By Bike World TV
Lara and Chad from Bike World TV headed to Spain to check out the 2023 Triumph Street Triple 765 R And RS models with the sole mission of deciding if the nearly £2k price gap is justified. They took to both track and road for a comprehensive review. Triumph says that both models are more agile, more powerful, enjoy better handling and naturally claim that the newer models are better looking.
The much-adored Moto GP circuit - Circuito de Jerez hosted the Triumph team for the launch of what some anticipated would be the release of the best middleweight naked bike of the year.
With Lara being relatively new to Triumph models, but a veteran when it comes to track, the 128BHP Street Triple RS was in for an extensive going over. The superior suspension and braking systems on the RS were fully employed on track. Chad found his ride did not disappoint and comparing it to his ample experience of Triumph engineering, the 675 RS did not leave him wanting.
Moving on to the 675 R and the ample opportunity to put the bike through its paces throughout the scenic, twisting, undulating roads of in the southern region of Andalusia. Again, a glowing report on this model and surprisingly how the road ride didn’t leave them yearning for the RS.

Looking for some history on the Triumph Street Triple 675?
The Triumph Street Triple motorcycle was first introduced in 2007 as a naked version of the Triumph Daytona 675 sportbike. It was designed as a more street-oriented version of the Daytona, with a more upright riding position and a simpler, more minimalist styling.
The first generation of the Street Triple was powered by a liquid-cooled, 675cc inline triple engine that produced 106 horsepower and 50 lb-ft of torque. It featured a six-speed transmission, a twin-spar aluminium frame, and a single-sided swingarm. The first generation Street Triple was available in two different versions: the base model and the higher-spec Street Triple R, which featured upgraded suspension and brakes.
In 2013, Triumph introduced the second generation of the Street Triple. The new model featured an updated version of the 675cc engine that produced 105 horsepower and 50 lb-ft of torque. It also received a redesigned frame, swingarm, and suspension system, as well as a new exhaust system and revised styling.
In 2017, Triumph introduced the third generation of the Street Triple. This version featured a larger, 765cc inline triple engine that produced 121 horsepower and 56 lb-ft of torque. It was available in three different versions: the S, the R, and the RS, with each version featuring different levels of equipment and performance.
Throughout its history, the Triumph Street Triple has been praised for its balance of power, handling, and versatility.
