I'll leave this here:
I saw that video, looks like they may be beefing up the highest spec street and changing some of the cosmetics.

New Street Triple 2020 Teaser Video:
Launch date: October 7th
Yes apparently it is the Euro 5 model with minor cosmetic changes. Thanks to the Euro5 standard it is also going to be heavier (+6kg).
"The most powerful version in the current range, the RS (pictured above) makes 121.2bhp (90.4kW) at 11,750rpm. Next year’s Street Triple RS is type-approved at a near-identical 121.4bhp (90.5kW) at the same revs, which is impressive given the cleaner exhaust emissions. The bike’s dimensions are virtually unchanged but weight increases by 6kg from 181kg to 187kg in ready-to-ride form including a full tank of fuel.

|MacBandit||That makes sense. I forgot about the new emissions level.|

|MacBandit||They don’t typically test prototypes like this for minor revisions. I’m not sure what changes they could be doing to the Street Triple that would require a prototype. My guess is that it’s not a Street Triple at all. It’s either a very well disguised Speed Triple, which I highly doubt, or they’re testing the Daytona 765 motor in a Street Triple chassis so no one knows what it is.|
|Newbeme||I like the mirrors they have on it. I am not a fan of bar end mirrors and my '13 mirrors leave a bit to be desired.|

Other than more aggressive headlights I couldn't spot any major differences.
