‘The top spec RS gets the big­gest suite of giz­mos’

One key change for the 2017 Street Triple is the huge rise in elec­tronic rider as­sis­tance. The first part of this is its new ride-by-wire (RBW) throt­tle that en­ables the ECU to of­fer dif­fer­ent rider modes and com­mu­ni­cate with other sup­port sys­tems such as trac­tion con­trol and ABS.

Tri­umph says this RBW will bring more ac­cu­rate throt­tle re­sponse and im­proved on/ off throt­tle tran­si­tion. The top spec RS gets the big­gest suite of giz­mos, with five new rid­ing modes that ad­just throt­tle re­sponse, ABS and trac­tion con­trol set­tings. The set­tings are: Road, Rain, Sport, Rider Pro­grammable and Track.

Each has its own dis­tinct fu­elling traits, tai­lored ABS and trac­tion con­trol set­tings. The Pro­grammable set­ting al­lows rid­ers to set their own pa­ram­e­ters and com­bi­na­tions, in­clud­ing con­trol of the switch­able ABS – which can be set to Road, Track, or Off.
