Triumph will launch its new Street Triple on January 10 with a live video feed and has teased the launch with this video.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nckQh_cS-5I?feature=oembed&w=640&h=360]
It doesn’t show much except a fancy new set of “smiley” instruments and a silhouette.
The only styling changes from the current Street Triple we can pick are narrower indicators, slightly more rounded twin headlights and bar-end mirrors, although that could be an accessory.
However, it is believed the new model will have a significant engine capacity increase from the current 675cc.
Last year, Triumph surveyed its buyers about updates to the bike and listed suggested engine capacities “above 750cc”.
It is expected to be around 800cc and come in four model variants (base, R, RT and RS) from 82kW (110hp) to 93kW (125hp).
It will probably come with a slipper clutch, ride-by-wire throttle, riding modes, ABS, traction control, wheelie control, and cruise control.
The Street Triple teaser video comes with this tag from Triumph:
Once in a generation, a motorcycle comes along that changes everything. Be one of the first to meet our new game changer – a bike that simply tears up the rulebook and sets the new benchmark for power, weight, handling and looks. The revolution starts here.
To register for the live launch feed on January 10 at 7pm GMT (January 11, at 8am AEDT), Triumph wants you to sign up for their newsletter.
Australia seems to get new models fairly swiftly from Triumph, so we predict the Street Triple will be here within the first half of the year.
