Triumph has released a video teasing what looks to be a new Street Triple. The video, titled “The Street Will Never Be The Same Again,” offers a few tantalizing glimpses of the new bike along with this description: “Once in a generation, a motorcycle comes along that changes everything, that sets a new benchmark in power, weight, handling, looks and completely tears up the rule book.”

Triumph has been rumored to be working on a new Street Triple for a while now, as the current 675cc model will be discontinued as it does not meet new Euro4 requirements which kick in next month. The new Street Triple is expected to get a bump in displacement to around 800cc, bringing it closer to competitors such as the Yamaha FZ-09 and MV Agusta Brutale 800. As with the outgoing model, Triumph is expected to offer a higher-spec R version, but various reports have them joined by an even more premium RS model and an RT touring version.

From the video, we can see a few details of the new Street Triple. The headlights are rounder on the outside, resembling those on the latest Speed Triple. A flyscreen tops the headlight, covering a nifty-looking TFT color display. Looking at how the rpm numbers are arranged, it appears as if the tachometer lights radiate to either side as the engine speed increases.

We’ll have more details as they emerge, leading up to the official launch of the new Triumph Street Triple on Jan. 10.

  • I want more RPM!

  • allworld

    This may be a Motorcycle of the Year contender…………..
    A shoot out between the FZ09, Brutale 800 and this new Street Triple is a must.

    • Tiago Lopes

      And Z900

  • Kenneth

    This, in an RS version, could substitute nicely for their long-absent Sprint ST.

    • allworld

      The RT is suppose to be more touring oriented. The RS more track… we shall see.
      A new Sprint ST based on the current Speed Triple 1050 would be nice, very nice.

      • Born to Ride

        I would love a revised Sprint, just fix the engine heat issue and put good headlights on it. It truly was a wonderful tourer and commuter, just awful around town and in the pitch black night out where I live.

          Glad to finally hear I was not the only one uncomfortable with the lack of adequate night lighting. Projector beam lights was a misnomer.

          • Born to Ride

            I found that the low beams were quite alright, no complaints. The high beam was pathetic. One little spot of light. Only thing it was good for was being able to see the road directly in front of you when the bike dove on the brakes.

          • therr850

            I thought the low was the better of the two but it didn’t light the road shoulders as well as I liked for deer and dog spotting.

      • Kenneth

        Isn’t the ‘R’ version the usual Triumph track-oriented version? I figured ‘RS’ might indicate a half-fairing, with RT being the more touring-oriented rig, as you said. A Sprint-like Street 800 might just be wishful thinking on my part.

    Is an open classer to follow?

    You have my attention.

      KTM had better rush their 800 .. End of 17 early 18 may be too late. New Triumphs have been kicking goals . It may well be that the vast auto industry in Thailand is now worlds best. ..
      I will retain my modified FZ 09 . But I believe that the more people who get a taste for light ,agile ultra powerful middleweight nakeds will increasingly make up the lifeblood of motorcycling. Sales figures are in. Fun is king.

  • Craig Hoffman

    Triumph has been executing really well lately. High hopes for this one.

  • Blake Newton

    We’ll see if I stick with my plan for a Monster 821. It’ll be either one. If this looks good, It will be a tough choice.

    • Born to Ride

      Personally I’d wait until the monster gets bumped to the 939.

  • Alex

    I had a 2013 street triple r and i think is the most balance motorcycle there is. My only complaint was that it lacked in the torque department. I hope that with the new 800 they can get at least 60 lbs of torque even if the hp stays the same

  • Matt Forero

    I missed this article in the holiday shuffle, but man this is going to be an awesome bike. Triumph is at the top of their game.
