There’s a long list of parts changed inside the Triumph Street Triple 765 engine, the dashboard is also new, but the main difference is the throttle response and the sporty attitude that brings out the hooligan inside you.
When you realize that you are riding the 2019 MotoGP Moto2 engine, the first thing that comes through your mind is to twist the throttle as hard as you can to check out the power output. Although it seems a bit underpowered with only 118 Hp (R version), the 765 in-line three-cylinder engine pushes like mad. Revving it up will become an addiction in a few minutes.
We took it for a 300 miles spin on highways, B roads, and twisties and it started to grow in our eyes as soon as we hit the curvy mountain roads. The Street Triple feels like a performance naked that can handle fast riding session, but unfortunately, you have to use it on highways also, and that messes up the trip. The wind protection is close to none, and the maximum cruising speed is around 80 mph, so that might be a downsize for many.
