Speaking about the engine, the RS continues to derive power from the 765cc 3-cylinder engine. This powerplant still develops 123bhp but the torque curve has been revised for better low and mid-range thrust. Peak torque now stands at 79Nm up from the old generation’s 77Nm. The Euro 5 compliant engine now equipped with a free-flow exhaust system that comes with an aggressive carbon fiber finished tip.
What’s interesting is that the new Street Triple RS continues with Track spec components like – two-way quickshifter, Brembo M50 Monobloc calipers, a pair of fully adjustable Showa USD forks and Ohlins STX40 monoshock. The tyres are track-ready latest generation Pirelli Supercorsa SP V3. The only nick in the package is that new RS doesn’t get IMU-based electronics like Cornering ABS, wheelie and stoppie mitigation, etc. However, the new Triumph Street Triple RS gets various ride modes and traction control system for one hell of a performance of the road as well as track.
The India launch is expected only after the bike is launched in the UK. The price is set to increase a bit from the current price tag of Rs 11.13 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi.
