Posted on the FB robot page Lets see if anyone replies. Will update if anyone does.

Bharat Joshi - That may not be the same for bikes that would be (detuned) landing here, right?

No mention of mileage (kitna deti hai) and tank range.

No 0-100 time as well, though I'm guessing around 4 seconds.

Thank God for the "crown" over those fugly insect eye headlights.

As per whatever info the Triumph 'robot' person has shared the bikes coming to India will have the same settings as the UK versions.

The list of bikes coming to India is on their website which has shown that probably the Bonneville T100 and the Street Triple 'R' version will not come but the standard versions of the bikes will.

You can check out the website here:
http://www.triumph.co.uk/india/

I would like to clarify that the Top speed of 235 kmph which I mentioned was actually for the Street Triple R and not the standard Street Triple. Sorry for that mistake.

Also, all the mileage figures which are being shown are in UK riding conditions and they will be different from the figures in India. As I do not know these figures I did not mention them.

Triumph no where mentioned about settings for indian models.
IMO they will alter some settings - e.g ECU map for our poor fuel quality else we may have to run some of their models with 97octane fuel.

Also there is no difference between ST and STR wrt power and torque. So top speed of STR holds good for ST.

To me Thunderbird Storme looks like a lip smacking proposition over mid ranged HDs. Just wondering the price points at which Triumph would operate !

Thank you djay99 for that clarification in the previous post. However your post confused me about one part. Are you saying that all other bike manufacturers like Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha de-tune their superbikes for fuel efficiency before they bring them to the Indian shores?

You are welcome bharat. Honda, Suzuki & Yahama do not detune for better fuel efficiency but they do it because of low fuel quality (low octane) available in india.
These bikes have high compression ratio engines and hence require higher octance & un-adultrated fuel.

You can go through following link http://auto.howstuffworks.com/fuel-e...question90.htm which provides information about compression ratios-Octance link.

Actually, no detuning/tuning of the bikes are allowed. One of the clauses of import of motorcycles above 800cc is that they meet EU emission control standards. Certificate of conformity to e4 is required at time of import for CBU.

So, all imported bikes are supposed to be in stock EU trim. Most Japanese SBKs are capable of max output with 91 RON. It's only the Europeans and Americans that need 95 RON for max output.

I'm pretty sure the HD's coming to India are tweaked to run on lower grade fuel, don't want to comment if they are circumventing the rules.

Cheers

Ride Safe.

Thanks gthang. Can a bike with 12.6:1 ratio run on 91 RON? I believe it requires atleast 95.

Welcome.

I'm no expert, but, I dont think that you can make a direct correlation between Compression Ratio and octane rating. Yes, octane rating becomes important for higher CR's, but there are other factors including exhaust emissions and desired power output that determine RON requirement.

For e.g., my CB1000R has a 11.2:1 CR, but is rated for 91 RON in EU trim, but will run fine in as low as 86 RON in US spec. The CBR1000RR is 12.3:1, I believe, and I dont think it needs premium in the US either.

Cheers

Ride Safe

Slightly offtopic - There are so many superbikes (grey and legal) in the country - Wonder if there is any tweaking done on them to run on the quality of fuel available here.

And to Ram sir - who is bringing his Bonnie to India - Wonder if you are doing anything about it to run on the fuel grade available here.

Most of them use octane boosters when tanking up on the highways.

Hope the mods don't get mad at me for pulling the topic away from Triumph

I remember reading somewhere that Octane boosters don't really boost the octane as much as they claim to. (I could be wrong).
