Triumph Street Triple RS to be recalled in India
Triumph India has issued an official statement of a recall of 100 units of its middleweight naked offering, the Street Triple RS in the country. The company states "Triumph Motorcycles India is in the process of launching a safety recall concerning the left hand switch cube on certain Street Triple RS to remedy an indicator and main beam malfunction caused by water ingress into the switch cube internals".
The British motorcycle brand will be reaching out to the customers of these affected models and will replace the left hand switch cube without any additional cost. Positioned above the Triumph Street Triple S, the RS gets a host of mechanical upgrades to justify its higher price tag of Rs 10.55 lakh ex-showroom. Changes on the design front include LED daytime running lamps incorporated into the bug eyes and a belly-pan fairing.
The Triumph Street Triple RS comes powered with the same 765cc, liquid-cooled, inline triple cylinder in a higher state of tune here. Outputs stand at 123PS and 77Nm as compared to the 113PS and 73Nm on the Street Triple S. The power output brings the Street Triple closer to its arch rival, the Kawasaki Z900, which offers 125PS. The engine is mated to the same six-speed transmission, though the RS gets a bi-directional quick shifter as standard.
