In a bid to boost the sales during the high demand festive season, Triumph Motorcycles India is offering benefits of up to INR 1.59 lakh on the Street Triple RS. Potential buyers can visit Triumph dealerships near them to learn more about the festive season offer and the benefits available through it.
The festive season offer will also help the British marquee to clear the BS-IV stock before the new model arrives in 2020. While Triumph Motorcycles is yet to make the launch announcement, a recent report claimed that the 2020 iteration of the Street Triple RS will arrive in May next year.
The Street Triple RS is the flagship version of the company’s middleweight roadster range. The Street Triple series comprises three variants in the international market, but Indian buyers only have two option – S (base) and RS (top). The Indian market misses the mid (R) variant of the motorcycle.
The range-topping RS version packs the higher performance numbers and hardware specifications in the Street Triple series. The 765 cc inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 12-valve, DOHC motor churns out 123PS or 121.2bhp of maximum power at 11,700 rpm and 77 Nm of peak torque at 10,800 rpm. In comparison, the S variant draws 113 PS or 111.5 BHP of power at 11,250 rpm and 73 Nm of peak torque at 10,421 rpm from the same motor.
The engine is linked to a six-speed that benefits from an assist and a slipper clutch. The premium hardware specifications include Showa 41 mm upside down big piston forks (BPF) at the front and Ohlins STX40 monoshock at the back – both adjustable. Braking tasks are handled by twin 310 mm floating discs with Brembo M50 4-piston radial monobloc callipers at the front and a single 220 mm fixed disc with Brembo single-piston sliding calliper at the back.
In more updates, the 2020 Street Triple RS with Euro-V emission norm compliance is already out, and all the changes on the new model are available. The updated motorcycle is claimed to deliver a meatier mid-range than the outgoing version. The peak power output on the Euro-V model stays at 123 PS, while the maximum torque is higher than the current model (79 Nm vs 77 Nm).
