- 2017 Triumph Street Triple S to be launched
- The top-spec 'RS' variant will be launched later
- Street Triple S to cost around Rs. 9 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi)
Triumph Motorcycles will launch the 2017 model of its acclaimed roadster, the Triumph Street Triple on 12 June 2017. The 2017 Triumph Street Triple is available in three trims, all with the same new 765 cc engine, but different states of tune. The Street Triple S model makes the least power at 111 bhp, while the R model makes 116 bhp and the top-spec RS model makes 121 bhp. For now, Triumph India will first launch the Street Triple S; in India, Triumph is not expected to introduce the R variant, but the top-spec RS variant is expected to be introduced by the end of the year. The 2017 Street Triple S is expected be priced around Rs. 9 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
We have already ridden the top-spec Triumph Street Triple RS, and it's a bike which has left us impressed no end. The 'S' trim may be lower-spec, but it will also have the same entertaining personality and performance for which the Street Triple, or Striple, as it's fondly called, is known for globally. It's a naked, all right, so no full-fairing, but the Street Triple promises a lot - superlative performance, excellent handling and the ability to become an occasional track tool as well. Here's a look at all you need to know about the 2017 Triumph Street Triple.
The overall styling of the 2017 Street Triple largely remains the same. There are some subtle changes though; new split seats, sharper tail end, new exhaust and all-new gullwing swingarm. The radiator cowls are all-new as are the front and rear fenders and body panels. The R variant gets a red sub-frame while the RS variants gets bar-end mirrors and silver finished sub-frame. The silencer for the R and RS has sportier styling with crafted end caps. The Street Triple RS also gets a colour-coded belly pan and pillion seat cowl.
2. Engine and Performance
The most significant change on the new Street Triple is the engine, which gets a displacement bump from the earlier 675 cc engine. Like the earlier model, the new 765 cc in-line three engine of the 2017 Street Triple has also been developed from the race bred Daytona engine. The engine gets more than 80 new parts including an increased bore and stroke, new cam, pistons and Nikasil plated aluminium barrels for better heat dissipation. On the 'S' variant, the triple makes 111 bhp of power at 11,250 rpm and 73 Nm of peak torque at 9,100 rpm. Both the R and RS variants get a slip-assisted clutch for lighter action, but the S variant loses out on that. The top-spec RS model also gets a quickshifter.
One of the most talked about points on the new Street Triple is the all-new, full-colour TFT screen, which is angle adjustable for better readability, with different screen display styles and layout to choose from. The screen can also be set to a "high" contrast or an "auto" setting which uses an integrated ambient light sensor to make it readable in all light conditions. But the Street Triple S will not have the TFT screen and will be available with a revised LCD screen and analogue rev counter.
The new ride-by-wire system has riding modes linked to it, which adjust throttle response, ABS and traction control settings at the push of a button. The Street Triple S gets just two modes - 'road' and 'rain';while the top-spec Street Triple RS gets five modes in all, with the addition of a 'sport', 'rider programmable' and ''track' mode.
The on-board computer on the S model gives the rider access to information like speedometer, rev counter, riding mode, gear position display, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter and journey distance. On the higher spec R and RS models, there is additional information including two trip displays, average and instantaneous fuel consumption, range to empty, riding mode selection, display style and contrast settings, service information, coolant temperature, warning symbol information and a lap timer exclusive to the RS model.
4. Cycle Parts and Suspension
The three variants have different suspension and brakes. The base Triumph Street Triple S gets Showa suspension front and rear, with the rear shock adjustable for preload. The 'S' gets 110 mm front fork travel with 124 mm rear wheel travel. Braking on the 'S' is handled by Nissin two-piston calipers on the front and a Brembo single-piston sliding caliper at the rear. ABS is standard on all three models, but on the S variant, it's not switchable - so you can't turn it off if you want to, or need to.
So far, there's no word on the actual price, but we expect Triumph to price the new Street Triple S to compete directly with the Kawasaki Z900, so expect the Street Triple S to be priced very competitively, at around or just under Rs. 9 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). A source privy to the launch has indicated that Triumph will not launch the R variant in India, but the top-spec RS model will be launched by the end of this year, based on the market response to the S model. We expect the top-spec RS variant to cost around Rs. 11 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). If Triumph does manage to keep the prices competitive, the new 2017 Street Triple could have a whole new fan following, just like the Triumph modern classics in India.
