The Street Triple S is also lighter than before (dry weight is 166 kilos), has more features and offers more power, too. The new 765 cc in-line three cylinder engine employs more than 80 new parts in comparison to its predecessor, and makes 111 bhp@11,250 rpm and 7.44 kgm@10,421 rpm. There are two riding modes (Road and Rain), a new ECU, switchable traction control, and an optional quickshifter.

Triumph India’s MD, Vimal Sumbly, said, “Our ambition was to deliver a state of the art roadster that is both addictive everyday fun and a full track weapon but with its own distinctive attitude. The Triumph Street Triple S delivers on these while demonstrating unique levels of power, performance, technology, and suspension. Owning the Street Triple also gives Triumph enthusiast a chance at owning a bit of the exhilarating Moto2 engine technology now that our partnership is in the books. Our hope to keep making newer and better associations and products and to keep delivering on the high standards that is the Triumph way of riding.”

The Triumph Street Triple S is assembled in India, hence the competitive pricing. The bookings are open now, and the bikes will be delivered from the next week onwards.
