Latest reports suggest that Triumph Motorcycles will bring its latest generation middleweight roadster, the 2017 Street Triple to India by July this year. Reports also suggest that the British marque will first introduce the entry level variant of the roadster series, the Street Triple S, in the initial phase. There is still no word about the India launch of the Street Triple R and the top-spec Street Triple RS variants.

As you must have already read in our previous reports, the updated Street Triple series features a revised engine with new camshafts, Nikasil plated aluminium barrels and the crankshaft. The British automaker claims that only 10% of the engine components have been carried over from the previous generation model.
The new 765cc engine, which is claimed to shed about 1.5 kg over the outgoing version is is available in three states of tune: 111 BHP with 71 Nm of torque, 116BHP with 75 Nm of torque, and 121 BHP with 75 Nm of torque for the Street Triple S, Street Triple R and the Street Triple RS trims respectively. This engine comes mated to a six speed transmission that sends power to the rear wheel.
The motorcycle continues to use the same chassis as the outgoing Street Triple but now features a revised swing arm and new mounting points. The entry-level S variant features Showa suspension, a ride-by-wire throttle, two-riding modes, ABS and switchable traction control. The R variant, on the other hand, gets four riding modes, fully adjustable Showa suspension, and Breambo M4.32 radial monobloc front brake calipers.
The top of the line Street Triple RS features premium set of hardware which includes 41mm Showa separate function forks upfront and Ohlins STX40 adjustable mono-shock suspension at the rear, and Brembo M50 monobloc front brake calipers. The RS variant also gets ‘track’ riding mode, a lap timer, quickshifter and Pirelli Diable Supercorsa SP tyres.
The Street Triple S, as aforementioned, are expected to arrive in India by July 2017. The motorcycle will carry a premium over the outgoing model so expect the new 2017 range to be available from INR 9-10 lakh (ex-showroom).
