Last time I inquired, they had said around 32000, maybe prices have changed a bit. Also, there's a two month waiting period , since the parts have to come from England.

Whoa. Arrows for the Street Tripple cost just 34K?

It's hard to believe since the Arrow 2X1 is 50K and 2X2 is 60K for Bonnie
The Street one is only a slip-on, hence cheaper than the Bonnie exhausts

Oh! It's just a slip-on. Then its definetly costlier than Bonnie as the Slip-ons for Bonnie are 23K and full exhaust system starts from 50K

Its pretty normal for a slip on. Got it from Shaman Motors. They have it for the Daytona but I'm sure the one for the Street will also be the same.

Finally, some serious riding after a long time. The weather was simply superb, and company even better. Did two quick back to back rides on Sat and Sun. Pics will explain the rest. Destination was Adichunchungiri temple, Kunigal and some special idli-dosa place near Devanahalli

Thanks for the ride, Sharath. The ST is a gem of a bike. Butter smooth engine and refinement and doesn't feel like it's a big bike at all. Handles like a toy on the move.

I was so confused between this and the bonny and after I rode the bonny for a short stretch yesterday, I was convinced that this is the bike to have.

I felt so connected with the machine, something that didn't happen with the bonny. Not discounting the superb touring comfort the bonny offers and the awesome exhaust note but i guess i still have time on my side to switch to a bike like the bonny

Thanks for the ride mate. You helped me seal the choice. Now it's time to save up and make it happen.

Oh yeah, the ride yesterday was fantastic too. It was great to catch up after ages.

P.S. Does this specifically need 97 octane fuel?

Nope, no 97 octane fuel required. Just the normal 91 Octane will do. I fill from reliable bunks, to get assured good quality fuel, that's all

Adithya hope to welcome you to the Triumph owners group soon.

What you have stated above is very valid and logical. ST is definitely is a great bike and a few summers ago I too would have gone for it.

The feeling of connecting with the machine - I dare say that its the USP of many Triumph models (to a degree more that other big brands).

Best Regards & Ride Safe

Ram

Did my first ride with the B.R.A.Ts group ( Bangalore Riders Association of Triumph ). Awesome ride, great weather and fun company. The breakfast point had other visitors too, and the ride back was great fun, trailing a really, really loud Busa. Damn thing was so loud, even the trucks just gave way for it

Got some reflective rim tapes installed, to improve visibility at night. Went with blue, to compliment the overall blue-white theme of the bike

Congrats on the beast. Got a few questions for you.

How do you find the ground clearance - does anything touch on high speedbumps ?

How are the headlamps, in terms of illumination ?

Riding single, no problem at all. When with pillion, I have slightly scraped humps twice. But only on the villager made ones, not the regular ones.

Headlamps are great, illumination is very good, since both sides are on in low and high beams.

No Way. Street is way to small compared to Speed.

Look at the size of the tank on Speed. when I sat on the Speed, tank engulfed me entirely despite me being a tall & big guy !!

Speed is a much bigger machine !!

Love the Speed Triple. Really have my eye on it. I reckon not many have been sold so far. Thats the first picture Ive seen of the speed outside of the showroom environment.

Speed Tripple hasnt sold much due to the price factor. It's 12.50 Lakhs OTR in Hyderabad and there are only 3-4 Speed Tripple sold in Hyderabad as far as i know

Here is one pic of yours truly on the Speed Tripple
