Triumph Motorcycle India is gearing up to launch the new Street Triple R in the Indian market. Once launched, the Street Triple R is expected to arrive in India sometime during this month and will be priced aggressively by the company.
According to Autocar India, some of the authorised dealers in the country have begun to accept bookings for the Street Triple R unofficially, ahead of its launch. This will be the first time that the Street Triple R will be introduced into the Indian market by the company.
The upcoming street-naked performance motorcycle will be the new base model in the Street Triple's line-up. It will replace the Street Triple S, which was the entry-level variant in the Indian market for years.
Also, the company has undergone a major shift in the motorcycle's portfolio after the introduction of the 765cc engine. For years the Street Triple R was the top-spec variant in the company's line-up. However, it was changed, when Triumph introduced a new range-topping Triumph Street Triple RS back in 2017. The new top-spec motorcycle was recently launched in India with prices starting at Rs 11.13 lakh, ex-showroom (India) — here are more details.
Coming back to the Street Triple R, it will be powered by the same 765cc, in-line three-cylinder engine as the RS, but with a slightly lower state of tune. The engine produces a maximum power of 116bhp at 12,000rpm and a peak torque of 77Nm at 9,400rpm — around 5bhp and 2Nm less than the RS's engine. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slip-assisted clutch.
Other cycles parts on the Street Triple R also gets downgraded as compared to the RS variant. It misses out a TFT colour display, and only features an LCD with an analogue tachometer. It features only two riding modes, as supposed to three on the Triple RS.
The suspension duties on the Street Triple R is handled by a 41mm forks at the front and a mono-shock setup at the rear, both of which are sourced from Showa and are fully-adjustable. Braking on the motorcycle is done via 310mm disc brake at the front and a 220mm disc brake at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS.
Once launched the Triumph Street Triple R will rival the newly launched BMW F 900 R, the Kawasaki Z900 and the soon-to-be-launched BS6 KTM 790 Duke; among others in the Indian market. The Triumph Street Triple R is expected to be priced under Rs 10 lakh.
