The updated Triumph Street Triple is expected to come with a bigger and more powerful engine along with an array of electronic rider aids.
That an updated Triumph Street Triple is in the works is something that most of us have known for quite a while now. However, what we didn’t know – so far – was when it’ll be out. But, thankfully, Triumph has now solved that mystery for us – the new Street Triple will be launched on January 10, 2017 in the UK.
In a teaser video released by the company, Triumph has confirmed that it will be launching a new motorcycle “that sets a new benchmark in power, weight, handling, looks…and completely tears up the rule book”. Plus, there’re one too many clues that it’s going to be the new Street Triple.
The first giveaway are the twin-headlamps, which seem to be borrowed from the bigger Speed Triple. While there’s no confirmation on the powertrain of the new motorcycle, it is believed that the inline 3-cylinder motor will be increased to 765cc from the current model’s 675cc. Naturally, the power output will be up from the current model as well – expected in the range of 110bhp.
Apart from that, expect the new Street Triple to come with an array of electronics such as traction control, switchable power modes, ride-by-wire throttle, and of course the new TFT instrument cluster shown in the video. In addition to that, the motorcycle is also expected to get a slipper clutch, Brembo brakes and Ohlins suspension setup.
After its global unveil in January, the new Street Triple should be arriving to the Indian shores later sometime in 2017. That said, the company’s first India launch of 2017 will be the new Bonneville Bobber.
