Triumph begins deliveries for 2023 Street Triple R, RS

Triumph has announced that it will today finally begin deliveries for the updated Street Triple R and RS naked sport bikes. The two variants were launched back in June at Rs 10.17 lakh and 11.81 lakh respectively, but homologation setbacks have meant that Triumph hasn’t been able to hand bikes over to customers thus far. Prices have risen by around Rs 1 lakh for the former and Rs 50,000 for the latter.

The updated Street Triple is the first new big bike to be brought to India since Triumph’s sales and service operations were taken over by Bajaj back in April. With the arrival of the more affordable Speed 400, Triumph is also in the process of growing its network to 120 showrooms by the end of this financial year.

As for the new Street Triple, its liquid-cooled, 765cc, triple-cylinder engine has been updated with Triumph’s learnings from the Moto2 world championship. Improvements to this already potent mill include new pistons, con rods, shorter intake trumpets as well as a new camshaft and increased valve lift. As a result, power has gone up to 120hp on the R and 130hp on the RS. Torque figures on both remain the same at 80Nm.

Both the bikes have had revisions to their respective chassis with a sharper rake and reduced wheelbase. The track-oriented RS takes it one step further with a taller subframe by means of a 20mm spacer on the monoshock. A noteworthy change to the Street Triple R is that it now runs on Continental ContiRoad tyres, instead of the Pirelli Diablo Rosso III hoops it used to be shipped with earlier. The RS ships with the super sticky Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tyres. While the R comes with the same Brembo M4.32 monobloc calipers as earlier, the RS’ braking hardware has been upgraded with Brembo Stylema units replacing the already very capable M50s it came with before.
