Powered by the responsive 765 cc BS 6 compliant triple-cylinder engine, ‘R’ has new bodywork, flyscreen, and air intakes
Triumph Motorcycles has launched the 2020 Street Triple R for Indian customers at a price of Rs 8.84 lakh (ex-showroom). The 765 cc triple develops 118 PS power at 12,000 rpm and 79 Nm peak torque at 9,350 rpm. The engine has become even responsive due to a seven percent reduction in rotational inertia which translates into usable performance at lower and mi-range of the rpm band. Refinements to the airbox and exhaust system help deliver a crisper, purer sound, with a smoother balance between intake and silencer sound. Just like the top-spec RS model, the Street Triple R has a smooth gearbox with short first and second gear ratios, delivering exceptional acceleration performance and slick gear changes. It also features a slip and assist clutch, which reduces clutch lever effort and improves rider comfort and control.
The new Street Triple R features high specification Brembo M4.32 four-piston radial monobloc front callipers, with an optimized brake pad compound for improved bike and feel. On the rear, the Street Triple R features a Brembo single piston sliding calliper. The suspension is Showa 41mm upside down separate function big piston forks and a Showa piggyback reservoir monoshock RSU. Both are fully adjustable for preload, compression damping, and rebound damping. It runs on Pirelli’s road-focused all-weather Diablo Rosso III tyres, which deliver long-lasting consistent performance over time. Their profile and structure give the new Street Triple R a sportier feel, with exceptional grip and stability in corners. To personalize the new Street Triple R, Triumph Motorcycles is offering a range of over 60 genuine accessories, including contemporary new scrolling LED indicators, a new flyscreen visor, and new machined mirrors and reservoirs.
