Triumph India is gearing up to launch the Street Triple range of motorcycles in the Indian market. The brand will launch Street Triple RS and Street Triple R in India on March 15.The brand is already accepting motorcycle reservations for a nominal amount ¥50,000. It is worth noting that Triumph did not bring the Moto2 version of the Street Triple to the Indian market. Deliveries of Street Triple are expected to begin in April 2023.
Triumph has completely updated the Street Triple. It’s completely new in terms of design, engine and even ergonomics. The fuel tank is now larger at 15 liters and looks muscular along with the new tank guard. Triumph kept the bug-eye LED headlights, but with a slightly revised design. In terms of riding ergonomics, the 2023 Street Triple R and RS now have 12mm wider handlebars. Compared with R, RS has a steeper slope.
The exhaust is also new now and may sound better than before, but now owners won’t be able to fit a slip-on exhaust. Instead, they’ll have to opt for a full-system exhaust system, which will be very expensive compared to a slip-on. The engine on the motorcycle has been extensively updated. It now has a new combustion chamber, higher compression ratio, higher cylinder pressure limitation and new pistons. The result is 118 bhp for the Street Triple R and 128 bhp for the Street Triple RS. Torque output rises from 79 Nm to 80 Nm. The motorcycle’s transmission has also been revised for improved acceleration and responsiveness.

The RS, on the other hand, has five riding modes – Road, Rain, Sport, Rider and Track. The tech onboard these motorcycles includes Bluetooth functionality, shift assist up and down quick shifters, ride-by-wire throttle, immobilizers, and more.
