- New Street Triple RS launch on 22 April
- Gets aesthetics, performance upgrades
- Likely to be priced higher than current model
Triumph Motorcycles has decided to launch the new Street Triple RS in India on 22 April. The company had previously planned to launch the streetfighter on 25 March but was delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic.
For 2020, the British manufacturer has given the Street Triple RS a host of changes. In terms of aesthetics, the front fascia is now revised to look more aggressive. The twin-headlamp design is now sleeker. Subtle changes have been made on the tail section, belly pan and fuel tank.
The new Street Triple RS continues to be powered by a 765cc, in-line three cylinder engine which produces 121bhp at 11,750rpm and 78.6Nm of torque. Triumph has tweaked the engine for more refinement and better mid-range performance. The engine continues to be mated to a six-speed gearbox but it has been updated with a quick shifter now. It also comes equipped with a new Bluetooth-enabled TFT instrument cluster, four riding modes and traction control.
The Street Triple RS is equipped with a few other top-spec equipment. Things like fully adjustable USD from Showa and monoshock from Ohlins can be seen on this bike. The bike continues to get Brembo braking system along with Supercorsa SP V3 tyres.
The Street Triple RS is expected to be more expensive than the outgoing model. So expect the upcoming Triumph to be priced a bit under Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
