Renowned Tollywood actor Prabhas, who played the role of Baahubali in the highly successful Blockbuster film has been recently snapped astride a Triumph Street Triple RS. The actor is currently busy shooting for his next film Saaho in which he will be seen opposite Shraddha Kapoor. Unlike Baahubali that was a periodic drama, Saaho will be an action thriller and hence, the significance of Triumph Street Triple RS is completely justified in the movie. The new Triumph Street Triple RS can be expected to be involved in one or more action scenes. The bike's larger sibling Speed Triple too is famous for its role in the Hollywood action blockbuster Mission Impossible 2 featuring Tom Cruise.

However, one thing that needs to be noticed is that there is no helmet visible in any of the two pictures shared by Prabhas on Instagram. We hope that the final action sequence with Prabhas is done by the actor wearing a proper helmet so that it does not send out a wrong message to the audience.
The new Triumph Street Triple RS was launched in India last year and it is the most powerful Street Triple till date. The motorcycle in its 2018 iteration has been launched in three variants globally viz S, R and RS. Out of these, while the S is the least powerful, the RS comes as the most power packed. India gets the Street Triple S and the Street Triple RS variants and the mid-spec trim has been given a miss here.
