1. Triumph team at Hinckley ‘triumphed’ over 2020 European emissions regulations
When it came to meeting the new emissions standards for 2020, the Hinckley team just didn’t change a few things, they actually did a complete engine overhaul. Everything from readjusting the airflow, tightening the internals, the new exhaust cam, reducing the weight of the engine, doing it all while maintaining the power it is known for. In fact, the revamped engine not only met emissions standards, it also gained up to 9 percent more torque at 121 horsepower and 79 Nm of torque. That is innovation.
2. Bidirectional Quickshifter is now standard
For a smoother and more comfortable ride, the Triumph design team decided to make the two-way quickshift standard on the 2020 Triumph Street Triple 765 RS. The two-way quickhift feature allows riders to make smooth and fluid gear changes in both upshifts and downshifts. The bi-directional quick shift gives the rider the acceleration they crave by decreasing the time required between gear changes. As a result, the power delivered is uniform and balanced.
3. The big difference between the 2019 and 2020 model? The 765 cc engine
If you’re looking for a good reason to buy the 2020 Triumph Street Triple 765 RS, look no further than its engine design. Not only has it been successfully reworked to meet 2020 Euro 5 emission standards, it also delivers a sweet and powerful ride. Designed with the help of those who developed the powerful Moto2 engine, the result was an engine that had all the power of a racing engine, but was also smooth and street-friendly for the average rider. The result is a pleasant and responsive ride in the mid-range, which is just what most riders want.
4. Brembo master cylinders have unmatched control under braking
For the best braking, the 2020 Triumph Street Triple 765 RS incorporates Brembo master cylinders in its design. Educated riders know the contribution Brembo makes to their overall cycling experience, as the Brembo m50 4-piston radial monobloc front calipers offer them improved response and high-quality control under braking. They keep it tight, so the braking you get is directly related to the amount of pressure you apply to the adjustable Brembo ration and stretch brake lever. A Brembo sliding rear caliper provides smooth and deliberate rear stopping power.
5. Fully adjustable Showa front suspension and Ohlins STX 40 rear suspension
This Triumph comes with a Showa suspension system for the front. Its robust 41mm inverted forks provide the rider with compression damping, adjustable rebound and preload. Rear suspension is supplied by Ohlin’s STX 40 monoshocks with adjustable load tank, which ensure that the rear wheel of your Triumph 765 RS remains in constant contact with the pavement.
6. The 2020 Triumph 765 RS left the IMU
If you’re wondering where the IMU went, well, the Triumphs development team decided to leave it off the spec list. This decision was based on customer feedback. IMU stands for Motorcycle Inertial Measurement Unit and provides the rider with lean sensitive traction control. However, when it came to what the consumer preferred, IMU didn’t rank high on the list. After conducting research, Triumph found that its riders preferred to spend money on the addition of the two-way quickshift and top-of-the-line adjustable suspension systems rather than the IMU, and Triumph agreed.
