Recently, Triumph released Street Triple S and now it is in the mood to bring its Street range excelsior i.e. Street Triple RS in India launching on October 16, 2017. And expect a much different version of the Street Triple series from its earlier siblings. The new Street Triple RS is much sharper and agile in context of looking while the complete package is still the same.
The headlamps which got DRLs have also integrated headlamp cowl just as Speed Triple 2017, belly pan which is body coloured and a rear seat cowl. The rear subframe is in the silver colour unlike the black colour of the S version and the red coloured in the R version.
The newly introduced Triumph Street Triple RS has a 5 inch TFT display instrument cluster which is adjustable according to the viewing suitability of the rider. The suspensions are of top-notch including fully-adjustable Showa Balance-Free forks and fully- adjustable Ohlins rear monoshock with a piggyback reservoir while the braking part is managed by Brembo M50 monoblock callipers upfront with a radial master cylinder and adjustable levers with two modes in ABS, Road and Track. The tyres are of course highly rated Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SPs.
The engine is the in-line triple motor of 765cc with 123PS at 11,700rpm and 77Nm of torque at 10,800rpm engaged with a 6-speed gearbox. The Triumph Street Triple RS includes five riding programmable modes namely Road, Rain, Sport, Track and Rider with 4 traction control settings i.e. Road, Rain, Sport and Track.
It is expected that the Triumph Street Triple RS price in India could be around INR 10.5 lakh ex-showroom New Delhi and will be competing with the likes of MV Agusta Brutale 800, Ducati Monster 821 and Aprilia Shiver 900.
