REASONS TO RIDE
Using knowledge gained from the Moto2™ race engine programme, the Street Triple R now produces 120PS at 11,500rpm, while the RS and Moto2™ Edition delivers a category-leading 130PS at 12,000rpm.
These improvements have been made without compromising the Street Triple’s renowned reputation for reliability, one of the many reasons why Moto2™ organisers recently extended the contract to run the 765cc three-cylinder engine until the end of 2024.
A higher compression ratio, new pistons, conrods and gudgeon pins, matched to new optimised combustion chambers deliver an increased cylinder pressure limit and ultimately more power. New valves and camshafts give increased valve lift for improved intake, combustion and exhaust efficiency, while new gearbox ratios bring improved performance and responsiveness, ultimately delivering faster acceleration, which all adds up to this new generation being the sharpest and liveliest yet.
Significantly revised and updated to produce more power than ever, the Moto2™-derived 765cc engine delivers all of the trademark Street Triple soundtrack. Making winding the throttle on hard all the more addictive, the revised air intake gives a hair-raising induction roar. And, with an increase in compression and more efficient combustion, the resultant sound emanating from the new, freer-flowing exhaust system and silencer is pure Moto2™ magic.
