Speaking on the occasion, Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India, said, ‘It is a thrill to see enthusiastic Triumph fans take part in this championship. The culture of championship racing is quite nascent in India. We have been and will continue nurturing this culture with our various track and safety initiatives. What makes it even more significant is Triumph’s exciting partnership with Moto-2. The new Street Triple will give riders a chance to own a piece of Moto-2 engine technology and bring recognition to Triumph’s top-of-the-line products. We are extremely happy with the performance of the roadsters as there are nearly 1000 of them in India, and the recent introduction of the Street Triple RS has been hugely successful.”

On display at the event was the all-new Triumph Street Triple RS, with more power, lighter weight, and easier to ride design, Triumph engineers aimed for the simple and achieved it by creating a perfectly balanced motorcycle. With more than 80 new parts including new crank, pistons and Nikasil plated aluminum barrels and an increased bore and stroke. The result is a significant advance in performance, particularly low-down and in the mid-range. The ‘RS’ tune delivers the highest level of performance ever for a Street Triple delivering 123PS @ 11,700rpm and a peak torque of 77Nm @ 10,800rpm.
