Triumph's Chief Product Officer, Steve Sargent said, "We wouldn't go into this project if we didn't think that this is a bike that could genuinely compete." "The Street Triple is derived from the Daytona so we think this is a really good starting point for a race bike. You've got a chassis that really works and engine-wise, we've got the 765 Triple."
The bike will debut on April 28
Notably, the Dynavolt Triumph Street Triple 765 RS will debut on the track at the first official BSB Test in Silverstone on April 28. For Triumph, the 2021 season is a test of sorts.
