    Default Triumph's new Street Triple might make do with mild updates for 2020

    With the current situation, it looks like the folks at Triumph have been hard at work. We recently got to see the Rocket III TFC along with the mass-production models of the big-triple Rocket III R and GT. Post that we got a sneak-peek of the Daytona 765 Moto2 Limited Edition. We also heard about the Speed Triple 1050 being replaced by the Speed Triple 1160. Today though is about a new Triumph Street Triple which, for 2020, might make do with lesser updates than the models mentioned above.

    The first and most obvious change will be the motorcycle's engine. The new Street Triple from Triumph will be powered by a Euro5 compliant engine. In addition to that, we don't see a lot of changes for the Triple except maybe revised styling. For meeting the norms, according to paperwork filed with CARB (the California Air Research Board), the new Street Triple R and RS models will gain an additional three-way catalytic converter, giving a total of two instead of just one. Slightly increased weight is not very high a price to pay for cleaner emissions, we believe.

    Also, the papers have not only been filed in the US, for Europe too the new Street Triple RS has been type-approved at 121.4 bhp. This means that the power produced by the engine remains the same which is no mean feat considering the compliance to Euro5. Dimensionally, the motorcycle remains the same but as we mentioned, the weight goes up by around 6 kg.

    While there's not a lot available on the higher-spec R and RS models, an S model of the new Street Triple was spied. The photos revealed that not a lot has changed in terms of chassis and suspension. There were some changes on the styling front though. The motorcycle sported sleeker-headlights and looks sharper and sleeker, aesthetically speaking. We expect the new model to debut at the EICMA or INTERMOT and the middleweight roadster from Triumph is sure to grab quite a few eyeballs.

    We reviewed the Triumph Street Triple 765 some time ago and you can read about it here.
