British bike maker Triumph Motorcycles Ltd has set the stage to launch the new 2023 Street Triple 765 R and Street Triple 765 RS in India on 15 March, 2023.

2023 Triumph Street Triple 765 R and Street Triple 765 RS: Design
The 2023 Street Triple R and Street Triple RS do not pack a raft of changes but get just a few styling changes. To start with, Triumph has made the Street Triple sportier and more aggressive than its predecessor, thanks to the addition of a new fly screen, a new, smaller, and sculpted fuel tank, raised tail section and reshaped fuel tank extensions. However, the duo retains their signature bug-eye-shaped headlights.
Furthermore, the R and RS are equipped with a new 12mm wider handlebar. Meanwhile, both motorcycles have seat heights of 836mm and 826mm, respectively. The 2023 Street Triple R and Street Triple RS come with new colour schemes. In some western markets, the R is available with Silver Ice and Crystal White, while the RS is available in three paint options: Silver Ice, Carnival Red, and Cosmic Yellow. The India-bound models are also likely to carry the same colours.

On the other hand, the Street Triple RS generates 130PS at 12,000rpm and 80Nm of torque at 9,500rpm. Moreover, Triumph has given the pair a new free-flowing exhaust. It has also reworked the gear ratios and final drive assembly to enhance performance.
