Triumph has tweaked the Street Triple RS for 2020 giving it a fresh new look, revised mechanicals and improved electronics. While the bike will be available in international markets by end of this year, the new Street Triple RS will make its way to India in January 2020.
The bike continues to sport the distinctive bug-like twin headlamp, sculpted fuel tank and svelte tail section like the outgoing model. However, the 2020 Street Triple RS gets aggressive-looking LED DRLs and a slightly higher tail section that provides more legroom to the pillion. The bike’s belly pan, side panels and seat cowl have also been redesigned to look sharper. Triumph is offering the Street Triple RS in two paint schemes- Matte Jet Black/Aluminium Silver with yellow graphics and Silver Ice/Diablo Red colour with Aluminium Silver decals.
The 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS’s full-colour TFT screen now features updated graphics and comes with the ‘My Triumph’ connectivity. The screen can now support the optional Bluetooth functionality that allows the rider to use the GoPro feature and turn-by-turn navigation system. Triumph has also optimised the ride modes which include- Road, Rain, Sport, Track, and Rider. The Street Triple RS comes powered by a 765cc, inline-three engine that produces 121bhp at 11,750rpm and slightly higher torque figure of 78.6Nm. The bike now benefits from a two-way quick shifter as standard. Moreover, Triumph has revised the engine with a new balancer and crankshaft for more refinement and gives it a 9 per cent increase in torque and power in the mid-range.
