What Is It Like?
2020 Triumph Street Triple 765 RS
I'm a 33 year old male, 6ft, with 5 years riding experience over two bikes.
Why did you choose it?
I chose the 765 RS because of the amount of bike you get for the money. It is priced very well considering the competition and the 765 was a gentle step up from my previous 600.
What is good about it?
What I love about the bike is the comfort, handling, sound and the overall build quality.
What could be improved?
I am not keen on the TFT screen software and the toggle switch to navigate the TFT screen is quite fiddly and not best placed. The brake lever being adjustable is pointless since you cannot get the lever close to the bar.
What is the economy like?
I average 45 mpg and the bike is only used for pleasure.
Any mods or upgrades?
- Full SC Project Titanium exhaust system
- BMC air filter
- Power Commander 5
How is the engine?
The engine after tuning is perfect. Prior to the tune I felt it was being held back and there was a noticeable hesitation in power.
How does it handle?
It handles like a house fly.
What are the brakes like?
The brakes are arguably too powerful for the road, which isn't a bad thing.
Is it comfortable?
Considering I am 6ft tall and 85 kg I find the bike surprisingly very comfortable. I covered 200 miles on it in one day and apart from a slightly numb bum it is certainly good enough.
How reliable have you found it?
There was a recall for the front brake pads and there is a software update to cure the random spells of engine cut out.
What's the servicing frequency and cost like?
The run in service is at 600 miles and then it is either 6,000 miles or once a year. I have only covered 2000 miles so far.
To sum up
The bike is a perfect blend of comfort, speed and sound with great looks. It will make an average rider feel like a riding god.
