British Motorcycle maker Triumph launched its updated Street Triple range last year (S in June 2017 and RS in October) in India. The popular middleweight motorcycle has garnered positive response and it has already found over 700 takers. The Street Triple range is now the largest selling roadster range from Triumph in India, after the Bonneville and Tiger series.
"When a new bike is introduced, it is on the basis our assessment of what the market wants, but one never knows what the reaction to a new bike will be. We are extremely pleased with the response to the Street Triple so far and hope to see more and more people enjoy this amazing machine, as much as we have enjoyed developing it," said Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India.
To celebrate the feat, Triumph Motorcycles India has introduced two new colours to this range - Crystal White and Matt black. Triumph Motorcycles India sells the Street Triple RS at Rs 11.13 lakh (ex-showroom) and the price is the same for new colour options as well.
