With the change in Malaysian government and much news about GST being zero-rated, the 2019 Triumph Street Triple 765RS is updated for the model year in two new colours – Matte Black and Crystal White. The price of the Street Triple 765RS is now estimated to be RM62,900, which excludes GST, but is pending approval from the authorities.

Mechanically unchanged from the 2017 model, the 765RS carries Triumph’s trademark inline-triple with DOHC and 12-valves, producing 121 hp at 11,700 rpm and 77 Nm of torque at 10,800 rpm. Fuelling is done by multipoint sequential fuel injection and ride-by-wire throttle.

Power gets to the ground via a quickshifter equipped six-speed gearbox with slip-assisted clutch and chain final drive. A full electronics suite comes with the 765RS, including five ride modes and switchable traction control and ABS is standard.

Braking is done with Brembo’s top-of-the-line M50 four-piston radial monobloc calliper brakes, grabbing 310 mm diameter discs in front. Suspension also uses high-end components, comprising of a Showa 41 mm diameter upside-down fork in front and Ohlins STX40 monoshock in the rear, both fully-adjustable.

Other models in the Triumph Street Triple 765 range are the base model 765S at RM48,900 and the low seat 765R at RM56,900. The 2019 Triumph Street Triple 765RS in new colours is available for sale at Triumph Malaysia.
