Mechanically, though the motorcycle remains unchanged. It is powered by a 765cc in-line three-cylinder engine that makes a whopping 123 PS of power and 77 Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed transmission that also gets a quickshifter for clutch-less upshifts. When coupled with the low dry weight of just 166 Kg. the Street Triple RS is one of the quickest motorcycles in its segment. We reviewed the motorcycle and were left impressed, you can read about it here.
Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India Pvt Ltd. said “Innovation at Triumph is motivated by our need to deliver products that suit rider requirements. The new Triumph Street Triple RS is a force-machine that delivers in terms of performance and style. It is the most explosive and adrenaline-charged Street Triple ever. It’s built to be at home on the track, and a weapon on the road. No wonder the same platform was the engine of choice for the Moto-2 tracks. I hope our riders enjoy the superb suspension, power and technology of this all-new Street Triple.”
