Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the all-new Triumph Street Triple S with prices starting at Rs.8.50 lakh in the entry-level S variant. The British manufacturer’s middleweight naked gets upgrades in all departments sporting an all-new engine, evolved design, updated suspension and a lighter chassis.
At the outset, the 2017 Street Triple gets an evolved design language. The styling is sharper now but retains the iconic bug-shaped dual headlamps seen on the previous iterations. The bike sports new inner and outer radiator cowls, front and rear mudguard, and new rear body panels. Triumph says the new Street is the lightest bike in its class with a dry weight of 166 kg, despite sporting a larger engine.
Power comes from the all-new 765 cc in-line triple engine on the Street Triple. Triumph says, the motor gets 80 new components including an increased bore and stroke, new cam, pistons and Nikasil plated aluminium barrels for better heat dissipation. In fact, this same engine will also power the FIA Moto2 championship from the 2019 season.
