Dynavolt Triumph Street Triple 765 Race Bikes



Triumph partnered with PTR Racing in 2021 to spearhead its racing campaign in Supersport competition with the Street Triple RS. In 2023 the PTR team, PTR Triumph, is fielding Finnish racer Niki Tuuli and British competitor Harry Truelove in the FIM Supersport World Championship.





Finnish racer Niki Tuuli has the credentials to be a title contender in the FIM Supersport World Championship in 2023. Moving on from three years in the Superstock 600 series, Tuuli made his debut in the WorldSSP category in 2016 where he impressed with podium finishes in all three of his wildcard entries. The following year he enjoyed a successful season as a permanent rider in the series, before leaving the PTR team mid-way 2018 to race in the Moto2 Championship where he went on to take a point scoring finish in his first season.

Tuuli went on to race in the MotoE series in the following two seasons finishing in sixth in 2020, before returning to the WorldSSP class in 2021 with a number of podium finishes. Last season Tuuli had enjoyed a handful of podiums along with a race victory, and returns to the PTR squad with Triumph machinery for an assault on the 2023 WorldSSP series. The 27-year-old who hails from Imatara in Finland is looking forward to fighting for the top step of the podium, and ultimately the title aboard Triumph Street Triple machinery.

Following wins in both the domestic series’ and on the world stage, injury cut Buckmaster’s career short and he eventually went into the management side of the industry, leading a number of successful manufacturer-backed teams to British and World Championship glory. Today Simon manages the PTR Racing squad, which is a partner of Triumph’s Racing programme in the WorldSSP category competing as PTR Triumph with the Triumph Street Triple 765 RS.
