This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Street Triple R motorcycles from 2017 onward.
It’s very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Street Triple Series (like the Triumph Street Triple RS, which has a few better chassis components). The service is also identical to the Street Triple R LRH.
The 2017+ Triumph Street Triple R has a 765cc inline triple that makes 87 kW (116 hp) @ 12,000 rpm, and 77 Nm (57 lb-ft) at 9,400 rpm. So it has to be revved up quite a bit to get to peak power. But the good news is that it’s tuned like a naked bike and the torque curve is quite flat — you get 80% of the torque at 2,500 rpm, according to dyno charts.
Here are all the Triumph Street Triple motorcycles, in case you’re looking for another one:
- Triumph Street Triple 675 Gen 1 (2007-2012) — the original
- Triumph Street Triple R 675 (2009-2012) — fully adjustable forks, 4-piston calipers
- Triumph Street Triple 675 Gen 2 (2013-2016) — bigger discs, redesigned lights
- Triumph Street Triple R 675cc Gen 2 (2013-2016) — fully adjustable forks, 4 piston calipers
- Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2017-2019) — 35 kW/47 hp, de-restrictable to 70 kW/94 hp. KYB non-adjustable forks, Nissin 2-piston brakes
- Triumph Street Triple S 765 Gen 3 (2017-2019) — 83 kW/111 hp peak, Preload-adjustable Showa SFF, preload-adjustable Showa shock, Nissin 2-piston brakes
- Triumph Street Triple R Gen 3 (2017+) — 87 kW/116 hp peak, fully adjustable Showa suspension front and rear, Brembo M 4.32 4-piston brakes
- Triumph Street Triple RS (2017+), 90 kW/121 hp peak, fully adjustable Showa suspension front and rear, Brembo M50 4-piston brakes
- Triumph Street Triple S 660 (2020+) — 40 kW/55 hp. Showa suspension, adjustable shock preload.
In 2020, the Street Triple R was re-styled to give it a more aggressive look, but the core maintenance stayed the same.

General information about the Triumph Street Triple R
The 2017+ Triumph Street Triple R is the more “street”-friendly version of their triple-cylinder naked motorcycle compared to the significantly faster “speed” triple. But don’t be fooled… this thing still does over 120 hp and can deliver over 200 km/h pretty easily!
The 2017 line-up of Triumph motorcycles was extensive and confusing as it changed a bit by region.
But in the US, there were three 765cc Triumph Street Triples
- Street Triple S, with Nissin 2-piston front calipers and preload-adjustable Showa suspension front and rear
- Street Triple R, with Brembo M 4.32 4-piston front calipers and fully-adjustable Showa suspension
- Street Triple RS, with fully adjustable Showa front suspension, an Öhlins rear shock, and Brembo M50 calipers
The Street Triple R comes with fully adjustable Showa shocks, an up/down quick-shifter (, and Pirelli Rosso III tires as stock. The quick-shifter, in particular, seems to have been a common request from owners, so it’s nice that it has been added.
The three ride modes (Sport, Street, and Rain) are carried over from the old model, along with ABS and traction control.
There’s a low-ride height variant for shorter riders. Maintenance for the low ride height version is the same, by the way.
Combined with more state-of-the-art technology, sharper styling, a more aggressive and athletic poise and the highest specification suspension, chassis and tyres ever.
