2017 Triumph Street Triple RS India launch happens right when the festive season is at its peak and is the range topping model after the S launched in the last quarter
Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the RS version of their desired naked street fighter Motorcycle the Street Triple. The newly launched Triumph Street Triple RS is the top spec variant of the Street Triple range. In the month of June 2017, Triumph had launched the Street Triple S in the country and now the British motorcycle manufacturer has revealed the top spec RS variant under the Street Triple division.
As the Brits say ‘The Street will never be the same again’. The newly launched Street Triple RS features better cycle parts, and the engine is tuned for more power as well. That’s what we were waiting for. The Street Triple RS gets a higher state of tune than the base S model. Powering the 2017 Street Triple RS is a 765 in-line three-cylinder DOHC engine with Liquid cooling. Internationally, Triumph sells the the Street Triple in three trims, but only the Street Triple S and the now launched Street Triple RS variant are the two models currently available in India.
The 765cc powerplant puts out 123 PS of power at 11,000 rpm and 77 Nm of torque at 10,800 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch and quick shifter. The bike makes 10 PS and 4 Nm more than the Street Triple S. Suspension components include adjustable front Showa 41mm upside down big piston forks and adjustable Ohlins STX40 rear monoshock. The motorcycle comes to a halt using twin 310 mm front disc with Brembo 4-piston radial callipers and a 220 mm rear disc with Brembo single-piston calliper.
The Street Triple RS India specific features include five riding modes – Sport, Road, Rain, Rider, and Track. Switchable ABS and traction control are standard as well. The bike also features a 5-inch customisable TFT display with a High-spec on board computer. The bike carries a new switchgear with 5-way joystick control for menu navigation and self-cancelling indicators. Considering all the highest components on offer, the Street Triple RS will cost more than the S variant, which retails at Rs. 8.7 lakh ex-showroom Mumbai. Street Triple RS costs Rs. 10.55 ex-showroom Pan India.
