You lucky lucky you! Pretty high on my wish list also this Stripple (i like the way you named her) Do share more riding experience in city as well as on the open road. My experience was a brief ride, and one thing i noticed was it was pretty easy to maneuver around city. Even the Bonnie felt more cumbersome off the center stance at low speeds. That motor has got decent low end, but i really never got a chance to hit the woooohooo range that much.

EDIT: Does the coolant tank comes with a guard? Can you share a pic of the same?

So will look forward to updates especially once you complete your running in.

All the very best and congratz.

Congratulations Hifisharu!

She sure is a beauty. One brief test ride and I had fallen in love with her too. The sound while revving is pure nirvana.

Please do update us regularly how she is to live with.

Ride hard and safe.

Cheers

Thank you very much guys, plan to log on many miles on this beauty.

@Jaggu: I've been following your posts on the Triumph thread, and know you have a liking for it. Let's meet up sometime, you can try her out for a longer stint. The coolant reservoir is not an issue, as the engine sump is in front of it. And that's made out of thick metal. No danger to the bike, but no one wants to hear the metal scraping sound. And yeah, do what Shubz says

Congrats on your Street Tripple.

Looks superb in White and Iam sure is a hoot to ride on highways

Some queries :-

1. Service Interval and typical costs?
2. FE
3. Longest that you rode on the bike till now and comfort for longer journeys?

And, welcome to the growing Triumph stable

Superb color and this bike looks so good , just eats up all that surrounds it. Yes Ducati's are more style focused but this one infuses best of the worlds.. practical, performance and pleasure.. have a great miles with smiles.

Thanks for the heartwarming welcome
Now, to your questions

1. Service interval is the same as Bonnie, 800 first service, then 10000kms. Should be around Rs5000
2. From the display,I'm told around 21, but full tank to full tank, I saw only 20km/lt. May improve post first service
3. Longest ride so far has been around 300kms, very comfortable, thanks to the neutral riding position. But for pillion comfort, break every one hour required

Congrats on the Stripple, excellent bike and equally good name. I thought more than the engine sump it might be that black box that would touch a speed hump, what is it by the way? Is the GC comparable to lets say a Pulsar? Also, can the headlight throw be adjusted? Because the high beam I felt was pretty short for a bike that can do some serious speeds.

Congrats Hifisharu!!

Excellent machine you got there! In terms of styling I feel the speed triple is best in their entire range. I have read a lot reviews about the handling and touring capabilities of the bike. Hands down the best! Also spotted one at an acquaintance's place where his client left it there for a while. Went head over heels with the way it looked.

Hey i believe you can go for accessory from Triumph on upgrading your mirror. Try out their other mirrors and you might end up with the right one

Beautiful bike indeed. I particularly like the blue color in the stripple. And there's an even nicer slightly deeper blue on the speed triple IIRC.

Do keep posting updates of your ownership experience. Can't wait to read more.

Congratulations on your new ride. I must say that this is probably the best choice today for a bike that allows you to either ride hard or have a relaxing cruise. I checked it out last week and am pretty close to making a decision soon myself.
