Braking duties on Street Triple 765 are taken care of by 310 mm dual disc setup at the front and a Brembo 220 mm single piston disc at the rear. ABS comes as standard fitment on all versions and in the R as well as the RS trims, it can be switched off as well. The S variant gets Showa suspension at front and preload adjustable and swingram at the back.
The new Street Triple 765 gets new features such as black powder coated paint on frame, subframe and swingarm and LED headlamps on the S variant. The R variant gets a LED headlamp with DRLs and body coloured flyscreen with air-intake, while the RS variant gets matte silver aluminium rear sub frame, body coloured belly pan and lower chain guard.

The Street Triple S has two riding modes, road and rain, while the R variant has four modes, road, rain, sport and custom. The RS trim has 5 riding modes which include all the aforementioned ones as well as a race track mode.
