Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the much anticipated Street Triple 765 at Rs 8.50 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Unlike the international model, which is available in three versions, the Triumph Street Triple 765 is available in one variant, the S. The other two variants will be launched later in a phased manner in the country.
Powering the 2017 Street Triple is a 765cc engine that generates 111 hp of power and 73 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission, which comes with a quick shifter. The motorcycle features different riding modes (road and rain), ride-by-wire technology, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and switchable traction control system. Triumph has also equipped the motorcycle with 310 mm dual disc setup at the front and a Brembo 220 mm single piston disc at the rear as well as Showa suspension at the front and rear preload adjustable and swingarm.
In terms of features, the Street Triple 765 is offered with an LCD instrument cluster which displays riding modes, odometer, fuel gauge, trip meter and distance to empty. The motorcycle also gets new features such as black powder coated paint on frame, subframe and swingarm and LED headlamps.
Speaking at the launch, Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India, said that the Street Triple has sold more than 50,000 units globally since its introduction. The Street Triple is interestingly positioned close to the Kawasaki Z900, which offers a larger and more powerful engine at a slightly higher price tag. However, Triumph offers something crucially important for the consumer that Kawasaki presently doesn't, a dependable after sales service network. That is key to the success of any company and Triumph already has 16 dealerships in India and more are in the pipeline, said Sumbly.
