2020 Triumph Street Triple gets updated engineAugust 21, 2019
The company seems to be working overtime this year. Just the other day, during testing on the public streets, they noticed the updated Street Triple. And this is in addition to the fact that earlier we saw the tests of Tiger, Daytona, Rocket 3 and three more models.
This is not the first time that a motorcycle has been noticed in tests, but before it was perplexing, it was not clear what had changed. Unlike other test mules, this model was practically no different from the current version. So what’s the deal? But the fact is that in 2020 Street Triple will receive a second three-way catalyst (TWC), as evidenced by a recent application by the California Air Resources Council (CARB).
Based on the document, the bike actually receives an updated motor. Since the advent of the Triple 765 in 2018, the motorcycle has been using the 765TEN powertrain. However, by 2020, the engine family listed in the CARB document will also feature 765DES.
According to the same document, such an engine refinement reduces the amount of emissions produced by almost half: hydrocarbon (HC) decreased from 0.2 to 0.1, and hydrocarbon plus nitrogen oxides (HC + NOx) from 0.3 to 0.2. From the outside it may seem that these are minor changes, but with Euro 5 standards this will be quite enough for the further existence of the model.
There are also suggestions that the new engine is nothing more than the recent development for Daytona, also used in Moto2. The engine is powerful and would be a winning option for Street Triple 2020. In any case, the company promises to soon release details about future models.
