Confirmed: 2020 Triumph Street Triple R to be launched in India on August 11
Triumph Motorcycles has confirmed the launch date of its upcoming street naked, the Street Triple R that will arrive in India on August 11, 2020. Positioned below the range-topping RS variant that was launched in April 2020 at Rs 11.13 lakh, the Street Triple R will be new range started instead of the S base variant that was offered in the previous iteration. We expect the prices to be in the range of Rs 9-9.5 lakh, ex-showroom.
Powering the Street Triple R is Triumph's Moto2 derived 765cc triple engine that 116PS of power at 12,000rpm and generates 78Nm of torque at 9,400rpm. The power figure remains unchanged compared to the previous iteration of the R variant. However, Triumph claims that the engine feels more responsive than before, which has been achieved with a seven per cent reduction in the rotational inertia for more precise throttle response. The engineers have also tweaked the airbox and the exhaust unit for superior performance and more distinct engine note. In comparison, the Street Triple RS makes 121PS of power at 11,750rpm and generates 78.63Nm of torque at 9,350rpm. The Street Triple R, like its powerful sibling, comes with a bi-directional quick-shifter.
In terms of design, the twin LED headlight unit has been reworked and continue to feature an air intake and flyscreen. The mirror design and the graphics on the motorcycles have been updated too. Internationally, Triumph Motorcycles is offering a range of accessory options that also includes a tank bag and saddlebags. It needs to be seen if the company offers it India as well.
