Mr Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India Pvt Ltd. commented -
It is the most explosive and adrenaline-charged Street Triple ever. It’s built to be at home on the track, and a weapon on the road. No wonder the same platform was the engine of choice for the Moto-2 tracks. I hope our riders enjoy the superb suspension, power and technology of this all new Street Triple.
