Triumph introduced the new-generation Street Triple in India earlier this year in June. The delivery of the new Street Triple has now officially begun in India.
The current generation of the street naked motorcycle is available in two variants: R and RS, priced at Rs 10.17 lakh and Rs 11.81 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively.
The R is available in two colour variants: Silver Ice and Crystal White, with the latter costing Rs 10.43 lakh, whereas the top-spec RS trim is available in three paint schemes: Carnival Red, Silver Ice, and Cosmic Yellow, with the latter two costing Rs 12.07 lakh (both prices ex-showroom).
Furthermore, prices for the Street Triple R and Street Triple RS have been hiked by Rs 1 lakh and Rs 50,000, respectively, as compared to the previous generation. The new-generation Street Triple outperforms the outgoing model in terms of dynamics, features, and performance at the additional premium price.
The revised Street Triple is the first new big bike to be introduced in the country since Bajaj took over Triumph’s sales and service activities in April. Also, Triumph is also expanding its network to 120 dealerships by the end of the fiscal year, thanks to the introduction of the more economical Speed 400, Autocar reported.
Triumph Street Triple R And RS 2023: Engine And Hardware Specifications
The Triumph Street Triple series for 2023 is powered by a 765cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected inline 3-cylinder engine that produces 118.4 bhp in the R variant and 128.2 bhp in the RS type. The torque figure for both motorcycles is 80 Nm. A 6-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch transfers power to the rear wheel.
The new Street Triple’s chassis has also been altered by the British motorcycle manufacturer, with a new gullwing swingarm that sits on Showa’s 41mm upside-down front forks. While the R gets Showa’s mono-shock absorber and the RS gets an Ohlins unit. Additionally, Brembo brakes are also used on both models, with the higher-spec RS trim using Brembo Stylema anchors with twin 310mm front discs with four-piston radial callipers and a 220mm rear disc.
