It was only a couple of years ago, 2017 in fact, that the Street Triple RS got its big boost from 675 to 765cc in capacity. Now for 2020 that 765 cc engine has undergone quite a major revamp and now boasts a lot more performance than before.

How big an improvement? How about a massive 9 per cent boost in horsepower and a 9 per cent improvement in mid-range torque! That’s pretty damn impressive and sees the 2020 Street Triple RS generating 121 horsepower at 11,750 tpm and 79 Nm of torque peaking at 9350 rpm.

Engine inertia has also been reduced by 7 per cent due to improved manufacturing tolerances.

New LED headlights and daytime running lights sharpen the front end look and combine with a more angular silhouette all round.

Instrumentation has gone full TFT and is available with GoPro and Bluetooth functionality to provide turn-by-turn navigation cues on the display.

An up-down quick-shifter continues the up-spec theme along with five riding modes, Brembo M50 four-piston radial stoppers and Ohlins hardware suspending both ends of the 166 kilogram machine.

I’ve always enjoyed the playful Street Triple more than the big-bore Speed Triple, and with this new bike I reckon that trend looks to continue.
