Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the new 2020 BS-VI compliant Street Triple RS in India at a price tag of Rs. 11.13 lakhs (ex-showroom, pan-India). The price remains the same as its predecessor. The motorcycle was scheduled to be launched in the last week of March, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis, the company had to postpone its launch.
The 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS gets considerable updates and still costs the same as the model it replaces which is quite remarkable. The bookings for the 2020 model are now open online, but the test rides and deliveries will commence only when the lockdown gets over.
The notable changes on the new 2020 model include – newly designed signature bug-eyed twin LED headlights with DRLs, revised bodywork with new colours. Also, mirrors, flyscreen, air intake, side panels, rear unit, seat cowl and belly pan are all new. It also gets a revised silencer with carbon fibre finisher. Some of the new features include – an adjustable colourful TFT display, Bluetooth connectivity and GoPro camera compatibility, turn-by-turn navigation and phone and music controls. The major update on this motorcycle is its powerhouse. It is BS-VI compliant and is now powered by a 765cc, in-line 3-cylinder engine which has been developed by Triumph’s Moto2 engine team. It produces 121 BHP @ 11750 rpm and maximum torque of 97 Nm @ 9350 rpm and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with bi-directional quick-shifter.
This middleweight sport naked motorcycle is equipped with Showa 41mm USD forks at the front and with fully-adjustable Ohlins STX40 piggyback monoshock at the rear. It also boasts Brembo brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP v3 tyres.
