Triumph Street Triple R to launch on August 11th
On 11 August 2020, Triumph Motorcycles India launched the new Street Triple R in India. Following the coronavirus pandemic situation, the launch will take place on the official social networking site of the organization where the latest streetfighter ‘s price will be announced.
The latest Triumph Street Triple R replaces the Street Triple S as India’s base model and stays below the range-topping Street Triple Ss. That said, it is much better suited than it replaces the Street Triple S.
The Street Triple R gets Showa, Brembo M4.32 brake calipers up front, and Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, an up-down quick shifter, fully adjustable suspension. It also gets a fairly good range of electronics, but it also doesn’t suit the Street Triple RS, which gets two additional modes of walking. The R does not get the swanky TFT screen of the RS, either.
Aside from these variations, the R’s 765cc, triple-cylinder engine still produces fewer strength and torque than the RS. It’s only 5hp and 2Nm down on Street Triple RS, at 118hp and 77Nm.
While those differences separate the Street Triple R base from the Street Triple RS, we are also expecting a similarly large price gap.
We estimate that the Triumph Street Triple R could be priced at around Rs 9.5 lakh, which is much lower than the Street Triple RS commands Rs 11.33 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
The Triumph Street Triple R races up against the Kawasaki Z900 and the KTM 790 Duke in terms of competitiveness, which is scheduled to go on sale shortly in its BS6 type.
