Scoop: Updated Triumph Street Triple 765 Spotted Testing With More Premium Components

On first impressions, it looks like Triumph wants to counter Ducati and KTM with this update

LISTEN 03:06

Triumph Motorcycles has of late only given us updates about its EV plans, without shedding any light on the future of its ICE products. But now, the British bike maker’s upcoming 2022 Street Triple 765 has been spotted testing for the first time, revealing a fair bit about what we can expect from it.

Triumph seems to be working on a new Street Triple 765 and it’s been spotted testing for the first time

Ever since its arrival, the Triumph Street Triple 765 RS has remained one of the finest middleweight naked bikes in the market. However, in recent years, the competition has sort of caught up which makes this update more than valid.

Consequently, the Street Triple 765 seen in the spy shots has a few notable updates. To start off, it looks visibly sharper and packs sleeker radiator shrouds that resemble aerodynamic wings. Along with this, the test mule also packs a carbon-fiber front fender.

This test mule features a more premium set of Ohlins forks upfront along with a new clip-on handlebar

The big talking point here, though, is the front suspension. Unlike the Showa forks on the current-gen Street Triple, the test mule boasts beefy Ohlins forks at the front, which could be the same 43mm fully adjustable units from the Speed Triple 1200 RS.

Similarly, the bike bids adieu to its flat handlebar and flaunts a lower clip-on handlebar coupled with a new triple clamp. While this will surely improve the bike’s cornering prowess, it would tamper with the Street Triple’s awesome versatility.

The new triple clamp also means Triumph could be going for a keyless ignition system, again borrowed from the Speed Triple 1200 RS.

We can also spot a slightly bigger sprocket at the rear, likely to boost acceleration

Additionally, the rear sprocket appears to be bigger here, probably aimed at improving the Street Triple’s acceleration and grunt to give it a better fighting chance against its twin-cylinder rivals.

This model could either be the updated Street Triple RS or a separate special edition model. Swipe up to know more.

Expect Triumph to play around with the engine too, eking out more juice or switching to an improved engine map. For reference, the current-gen Street Triple RS puts out 121 horsepower and 58 pound-feet.

Judging from all this, it seems the new model would be an update rather than an overhaul. We think it could be marketed in either of two ways: A special range-topping edition of the Street Triple RS, similar to the KTM 890 Duke GP, or an updated, fancier Street Triple RS to help it ace ahead of the competition.

The 765cc engine could also be tweaked to eke out more performance

Since the test mule doesn’t bear any camouflage or covered elements, it’s highly likely that the new Street Triple could be unveiled in a few months’ time. Thanks to the updates, the new model is expected to cost slightly more than its current price of $12,850.
