2017 Triumph Street Triple RS Track Ride Review

2017 Triumph Street Triple RS Track Ride Review

I am doing 230kmph. And, I know the bike can go faster still. But, I back off because I can barely hold on. The windblast is intense. The turn of speed, intoxicating. And the noise, well, it’s fabulous. This is the brand new 2017 Triumph Street Triple RS. And I am charging down the main straight at the legendary Circuit de Catalunya.

Triumph Speed Triple First Ride Review

Triumph Speed Triple First Ride Review

The Speed Triple 1050 is Triumph’s only litre-class naked motorcycle that is sold in India as well as in the rest of the world. It is also one of the few Triumph motorcycles that hasn’t been updated since a long time. The Indian market got this motorcycle at a time when its Japanese competitors got their latest machines to India. The Japs brought in safer and better equipped products.The Speed Triple, unfortunately, got lost in the world of litre-class nakeds. While the bike has been priced really well, it failed to appeal to the Indian buyers. The Speed Triple has almost the same power output like its Japanese counterparts and looks and feels like a big bike. But, it shares the design and styling with the Street Triple and that’s a problem (we’ll talk about this later).

Triumph Thunderbird LT First Ride Review

Triumph Thunderbird LT First Ride Review

Big, bulky, heavy – three aspects that are usually related to cruisers and it’s no different with the Triumph Thunderbird LT. LT stands for ‘Light Touring’ and that’s the only ‘light’ attribute about this cruiser. Launched to take on the Harley Davidsons, especially in the American market, the Thunderbird LT focuses on the same aspects like other cruisers – comfort and long distance riding. It was launched at a time when the Indian market had a good number of cruisers to choose from.

Triumph Bonneville T120 vs Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom: Comparison Review

Triumph Bonneville T120 vs Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom: Comparison Review

There are quite a few forces at work here trying to tug a prospect in their respective directions. There’s brand, origin, genre, technology and character. One must make a choice between air-cooling versus liquid-cooling; simplicity vs electronics; cruiser vs street; American vs British; Harley-Davidson vs Triumph. With Rs 10-11 lakh to spare and an eye firmly trained at the 1200cc-twin layout, one must choose between the Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom and the Triumph Bonneville T120. It isn’t an easy choice to make, unless, like us, you decide to go for the better product. And to find out which of the two is the better motorcycle, we headed to our favourite road; only the rain gods decided to play havoc. But, we soldiered on…

Triumph Bonneville T120 First Ride Review

Triumph Bonneville T120 First Ride Review

In the world of retro motorcycles, Triumph has a stronghold, thanks to its iconic brand – Bonneville. Since its inception, the Bonneville hasn’t changed much design-wise but mechanically it has.  And that’s what makes this bike special. It has managed to contain its character, feel and its fan following. The Bonneville T120 in its latest avatar, still manages to be the same old retro motorcycle outside, but inside, it is the one of the most advanced premium bikes to be ever sold in India. And thanks to this, the Bonneville T120 isn’t the most affordable Triumph bike in India anymore. The Street Twin has taken this mantle.

Triumph Street Twin First Ride Review

Triumph Street Twin First Ride Review

A modern classic. An entry-level Triumph. Ducati Scrambler competitor. Or simply a large capacity, torquey motorcycle, which, in a welcome change, isn’t intimidating at all. Say hello to the Triumph Street Twin, which might look retro, resemble the older Bonneville and seem simple, but is brand new and a whole lot more modern than before.

2016 Triumph Bonneville T120 First Look Review

2016 Triumph Bonneville T120 First Look Review

The Triumph Bonneville has been the perfect exemplification of the term ‘modern classic’ for over a decade. The 2016 Bonneville T120 has been built on a new liquid-cooled platform specifically developed for the modern classic line-up, and is a major step up from its predecessor rather than a superficial update. A tribute to the Triumph Bonnevilles of late 1960s, the 2016 model offers an ideal blend of nostalgia and performance to keep the enthusiasts happy.
