Triple Power: Tri­umph Street Triple RS

Bike India - - IGNITION -

TRI­umph mo­ToR­cy­cles In­dIa have launched the most po­tent it­er­a­tion of their street-naked motorcycle, the street Triple Rs, priced at Rs 10.55 lakh (ex-show­room).

af­ter launch­ing the base street Triple s a few months ago, Tri­umph mo­tor­cy­cles In­dia have skipped the mid­dling ‘R’ ver­sion and have gone all the way to bring us their top-of-the-line ‘Rs’ vari­ant. The most po­tent ver­sion of the pop­u­lar street-naked se­ries boasts of some se­ri­ous equip­ment in­clud­ing a slip-and-as­sist clutch, switch­able aBs, a quick-shifter, and an ad­di­tional ‘Track’ rid­ing mode, among other good­ies.

The street Triple Rs is pow­ered by a 765-cc in-line three-cylin­der mo­tor that makes an im­pres­sive 123 ps at 11,700 rpm and 77 nm at 10,800 rpm. It is paired to a sixspeed gear­box sourced from the more track-fo­cused day­tona. The bore and stroke are much larger in the street Triple and it also packs more than 80 new parts. The new bike pro­duces more power at the same en­gine speed than the pre­vi­ous model.

The new Rs comes with five rid­ing modes: Rain, Road, sport, Track, and Rider, that al­low rid­ers to tweak throt­tle re­sponse, aBs, and trac­tion con­trol set­tings to suit their rid­ing styles. The ma­jor change in the new street Triple Rs is the new chas­sis and a ‘gull­wing’ swingarm, that fur­ther im­prove sta­bil­ity. The bike is avail­able in two colours: matt sil­ver Ice or phantom Black metal­lic.
