Triumph Street Triple 765 RS: Fun on the run

FROM the moment I laid eyes on the 2024 Street Triple 765 RS, I felt a surge of excitement.

Its aggressive stance and athletic design hinted at the adventure awaiting me.

Every detail, from the sleek LED headlights to the sculpted fuel tank, spoke of Triumph’s commitment to both style and performance.

Fit and finish are top-notch, as you’d expect from Triumph, giving the Street Triple 765 RS a premium feel.

As I swung a leg over the saddle, I couldn’t help but notice the slight adjustments in the riding position – wider handlebars and a more commanding stance – promising a thrilling ride ahead.

But it was when I twisted the throttle that the true magic began.

The 765cc inline-three engine roared to life, unleashing a symphony of power and precision.

With 118hp and 80Nm of torque at my command, the exhilarating surge of acceleration was accompanied by the iconic snarl of the triple-cylinder engine.

This engine is the true star of the show, throttle response was lightning fast, allowing me to effortlessly dial in the perfect amount of power for any riding scenario.

One of the standout features of the Street Triple 765 RS is its versatility, thanks to the various riding modes, including Road, Rain, Sport, Track and Rider.

These modes adjust throttle response and traction control to suit different riding conditions and rider preferences.

Whether I was navigating rain soaked streets, tracks or carving up twisty mountain roads, the bike adapted seamlessly to my requirements, offering unparalleled control and confidence.

On the open road, the Street Triple 765 RS settled into a comfortable rhythm, effortlessly devouring up miles of highways.

The upright riding position provided me decent wind protection, reducing fatigue on longer stretches.

And while some may lament the lack of a full fairing, I found the combination of the headlight design and raised windscreen surprisingly effective at shielding me from the wind blast.

The engine is surprisingly smooth on the highway, with minimal vibration transmitted to the handlebars and foot pegs.

This contributes to a more relaxed riding experience.

The engine feels unstressed at highway speeds, typically around 7,000 to 8,000rpm in sixth gear, allowing for smooth power delivery and good fuel economy for a mid-weight bike.

Despite being a mid-weight, the Street Triple 765 RS packs a punch.

The ample torque provides strong acceleration for overtaking any vehicle.

Its relatively light weight (around 188kg wet) combined with its well-balanced chassis and sharp steering geometry translates to exceptional agility and responsiveness.

It can be flicked from corner to corner effortlessly, allowing me to hold my riding line with confidence.

The fully-adjustable Showa suspension setup provides a perfect balance between comfort and performance.

It absorbs bumps and imperfections with ease and stayed in control during aggressive riding on highland routes.

The Street Triple 765 RS offers sufficient ground clearance for most mountain and rural roads.

However, riders pushing the limits on technical terrain might want to consider aftermarket options for increased ground clearance.

The 765cc 3-cylinder engine delivers smooth and predictable power throughout the rev range.

This characteristic is crucial on mountain and back roads, where quick and precise throttle inputs are often required.

The chassis is incredibly well-balanced, making it feel light and playful.

The Street Triple 765 RS changes direction with superfast responsiveness, allowing me to flick it through corners with surgical precision.

And let’s not forget about the engine – smooth, predictable power delivery throughout the rev range, with plenty of mid-range torque for tackling tight corners and steep inclines.


The engine braking was equally impressive, aiding in smooth deceleration when entering corners or navigating downhill sections.

Even when the rain poured down, the Street Triple 765 RS remained composed and surefooted, a testament to its capable chassis and predictable power delivery.

The brakes are more than up to the task with superb stopping power.

The fully adjustable Showa suspension provides a plush ride over rough pavement, yet remains firm and controlled when you push the pace.


The smooth and precise shifting six-speed gearbox, enhanced by an up/down quickshifter that allows for “clutchless” shifts.

This makes accelerating a seamless process and lets you focus on your riding line.

In my book, the Street Triple lineup is definitely a darling of the mid-weight naked motorcycle segment, and the 2024 Street Triple 765 RS continues this impressive legacy.

In conclusion, the RM74,900 Street Triple 765 R is a motorcycle that effortlessly blends style, performance, and versatility.

This bike is guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time you fire it up.
