Triumph Street Triple R launched in India


Triumph India has launched its much-loved naked motorcycle, the Street Triple in BS6 form. While a few months ago, the range topping RS variant was launched, now is the turn of the Triumph Street Triple R. The Triumph Street Triple R price in India is Rs 8.84 lakh, ex-showroom. Bookings have started and the bike will be available for test rides and delivery soon. The Street Triple R price is Rs 2.49 lakh cheaper than the RS’ Rs 11.33 tag. It loses out on a bit of power and equipment but is still a formidable choice for anyone and everyone. It replaces the Street Triple S which was initially the base model for India. However, the R brings in more equipment and is even Rs 49,000 affordable than the erstwhile S variant. So, here is why you should buy one.

What’s new in the Triumph Street Triple R?

The new Triumph Street Triple R looks mostly the same as the RS. Immediate distinguishing features are the conventional mirrors as well as the lack of an engine belly pan. The R also uses slightly more affordable Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres. On the same front, the Street Triple R gets an analogue-digital instrument console, fully adjustable Showa suspension, Brembo M4.32 calipers, and a bi-directional quickshifter. The motorcycle’s headlight, silhouette, tail light are similar to the RS.

There are three riding modes available with the Triumph Triple R – Rain, Road, Sport. It misses out on the Track and configurable modes from the RS. Nonetheless, the 765cc three-cylinder engine is the same as the RS’ but loses out on 5PS of power. It makes 118PS and 79Nm (identical to the RS). The older S made 113PS and 73Nm.

The Street Triple R goes up against the Kawasaki Z900, and the upcoming Suzuki GSX-S750 motorcycles. There is also the BMW F900R that is priced at Rs 9.9 lakh.
