The Triumph Street Triple bikes would cost between Rs 11.6 lakh and Rs 12 lakh for the RS variant and between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 10.30 lakh for the R variant. The highly awaited middleweight nakeds from Triumph have now been released in India, with the R variant going for Rs 10.17 lakh and the RS variant going for Rs 11.81 lakh.
The Triumph Triple Range – Pricing
Priced at Rs 10.17 lakh for the R and Rs 11.81 lakh for the RS, the former’s and latter’s prices have increased by around Rs 1 lakh and Rs 50,000, respectively.
The Kawasaki Z900 (Rs 9.11 lakh) and the Ducati Monster range, which starts at Rs 12.95 lakh for the base bike and goes up to Rs 15.95 lakh for the higher-spec SP variant, are competitors to the Street Triple combo. A dealer conference featured the Yamaha MT-09, but since that time, the firm has given no indication as to when that bike will be introduced in India.
The Triumph Triple Range – Details
Triumph has revised the Street Triple bikes’ 765cc, liquid-cooled, three-cylinder engine using lessons learned from the Moto2 world championship. This powerful engine has been upgraded with new pistons, con rods, shorter intake trumpets, a new camshaft, and greater valve lift. As a result, the R now has 120 horsepower, and the RS now has 130 horsepower. Both continue to have the same 80Nm of torque.
With a sharper rake and a shorter wheelbase, each bike’s respective chassis has been modified. By using a 20mm spacer on the monoshock to create a higher subframe, the track-oriented RS goes one step further. The Street Triple R has undergone some significant changes, one of which is that it is no longer provided with the Pirelli Diablo Rosso III hoops and is instead equipped with Continental ContiRoad tyres. The extremely grippy Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tyres are standard on the RS. While the RS’s braking system has been improved, replacing the M50s it originally had with Brembo Stylema units, the R retains its original Brembo M4.32 monobloc callipers.
Both bikes come equipped with an army of IMU-enabled electronics, such as different riding modes, bidirectional quickshifters, multi-level traction control, and ABS. Four riding modes are available for the R, including Rain, Road, Sport, and Rider (completely customisable). With a Track riding option in addition to the previously listed ones, the RS goes a step further. While the RS has a colour TFT dash, the Street Triple R has a digital display that resembles a Trident.
