Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled the 2020 Triumph Street Triple S in Europe. The base variant Street Triple S comes with updated bodywork, a revised exhaust and some updates to the engine to meet the latest European emission regulations. The biggest change, however, is the distinctive face with the new headlights, similar to the one on the range-topping 2020 Triumph Street Triple Rs. The earlier headlights have been replaced with sharper headlights with LED daytime running lights, as well as the angular and sharper bodywork of the Street Triple.

Triumph has introduced an A2 license 660 cc model S variant for Europe, which puts out 47 bhp and 60 Nm, with an unrestricted model with a slight bump in power output to 95 bhp and 66 Nm. For India, it's still not known whether Triumph Motorcycles will just continue to offer the RS model, or the Street Triple S will also be offered on sale, considering the current slowdown in the Indian premium motorcycle market. For reference, the outgoing Street Triple S for the Indian market comes with a 765 cc engine, with 111 bhp of power and 73 Nm of peak torque.

The new Street Triple S does not get a TFT dash like the Street Triple RS, instead, there's an LCD unit with an analog tachometer. Suspension duties are handled by Showa, with 41 mm separate function forks with 110 mm of travel at the front and preload-adjustable piggyback shock with 124 mm of travel at the rear. Two riding modes are on offer - Road and Rain, which adjust throttle response and traction control settings, and road-focused Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres. Carandbike has now learned that the 2020 Triumph Street Triple S will not be introduced in India after all.
