Triumph Motorcycles has announced a more powerful Street Triple R and RS for 2023, with the introduction of a Moto 2 Edition limited to just 765 units.
- The 2023 Street Triple is more powerful than ever.
- The motorcycle features new engine internals, a higher combustion ratio and improved ergonomics.
Benefiting from the engine that powers the Moto2 World Championship, the Street Triple R and RS feature more power and improved rideability and ergonomics.
What’s new for 2023?
The R now makes 2hp more than the previous generation, with the power output rated at 118hp. However, the RS now boasts 128hp thanks to the higher compression ratio and new engine internals.
That said, the engine now houses new pistons, new connecting rods and redesigned combustion chamber, all contributing to the higher peak power.
In addition, the 2023 Triumph Street Triple range also features a new gearbox with a revised gear ratio.
Spec-wise, the 2023 Street Triple comes with lots of goodies, with the R variant boasting Brembo M4 brake callipers and a fully-adjustable suspension courtesy of Showa.
Meanwhile, the up-spec RS gets a Showa 41mm USD big piston forks and Ohlins piggyback rear shock. On the other hand, the Moto2 Edition gets Ohlins 43mm fully adjustable forks and rear shocks.
All three models also received a new electronic package, including refined cornering ABS, traction control and 4+1 riding modes; Road, Rain, Sport, Rider and Track (only available on the RS/Moto2 Edition).

According to Triumph, the Street Triple range starts from GBP9,59 for the R, GBP11,295 for the RS and GBP13,795 for the Moto2 Edition.
