There’s a low-rpm assist for negotiating in traffic and there’s a three-mode traction control system as well. Mode one is for sport riding; mode two for typical road conditions, and mode three delivers maximum traction control. The Triumph Street Triple S gets switchable traction control, and two riding modes: Rain and Road.

On the other hand, the Street Triple has a marginally bigger fuel tank capacity. When it comes to value for money, the GSX-S750 undercuts the Street Triple S by INR 1,74,500. The on-road price of the GSX is likely to match the ex-showroom price of the Street Triple S.
