The wait is finally over! Postpone, delays and even the rumours that Street Triple Range would not launch in India have circulated over the internet. But the wait for the 2023 Triumph Street Triple range's launch has finally come to a halt as the British bikemaker has announced the prices. The entry-level R variant is priced at Rs 10.17 lakhs, while the more kitted-up and focused RS variant is priced at Rs 11.81 lakhs. The limited-edition Moto2 variant, as expected, hasn't made it to our shores.
The bike has undergone mechanical updates, and the overall design is typical of Street Triple. The bike gets new pistons, con rods, shorter intake trumpets, a new camshaft and an increased valve lift. Learnings from motorsports have been put to use, wherein the power from the liquid-cooled, 765cc, three-cylinder engine has now increased. The R variant makes 120hp of power, whereas the RS variant makes 130hp of power. However, the torque figures remain at 80Nm.
What has significantly changed? What are the new updates? How does it perform and rides in the real world? All your questions and queries are being answered by Gavin, who rode both variants in Spain a few months back. To watch the in-depth video - click here. To read our review, click here.
The Street Triple R is around Rs 1 lakh more expensive than its predecessor, whereas the RS is around Rs 50,000 more expensive than the previous version. The RS version commands a premium over the regular R variant, but the price is well justified if you are looking for a sporty machine. The Street Triple Range goes up against the Kawasaki Z900, whose prices start at Rs 9.11 lakhs.
