Option 4 - Take a discount of 1.5 lakhs if you are buying another Triumph bike.

3- Upgrade to 106 and sign indemnity.

Vacuum pipe is out of vacuum as i understand ^^
Depreciated price minus insurance and road tax? You are kidding me right?

So no 10,000 thingy with second option right? This makes much more sense.

Delhi dealer is saying there is absolutely no buyback offer here.

Its just power upgrade, 1 lakh cash or 1.5 lakh accessories/discount on new bike. I'm waiting to get my bike back so I can decide.

Jaggu,
What is the road tax for the Striple?

Sorry to read about your dilemna but am sure you would make a well thought out decision.

Exactly the reason why I thought the Z8 will have the advantage at higher speeds

Spoiler :


For those who can't watch, stock STR is slower than Z. With Arrow, it is as quick as Z.
However, I still think that the Z will have an upper hand past 100.

I was looking at the dyno graphs of both ER6f (should be same for ER6n) and the 106ps ST. I can see ER6f/ER6n dominating the torque curve till 8000 RPM. This is the case with the 106ps version of ST. I am not sure how dominating it will be with the de-tuned version. Going by that, I guess even the in-gear acceleration of ER6N will be much better than the ST when it comes to touring on an highway since the RPM range (on the highways) will be much lesser than the 9000 rpm range.

Got to know from xbhp user that triumph is increasing price of street triple by over 30K from tomorrow. Very bad move i must say. ST will be ~9.5L on-road Bangalore.

Apparently a few Bangalore ST owners have served a legal notice to the Bangalore Dealer and Triumph India. Maybe someone who is part of that group could throw some light.

I was under the impression that all was sorted out with the three options provided to the owners of the ST for this fiasco.

Totally

Yes it is a true fact, there is one National Geographic video which recorded the dive in excess of 242 miles/hour. Google will be of assistance.

I am surprised by this move. Few days back, i visited bike accessories shop and i had a small visit to the adjacent Triumph showroom as well. I was curious to know what explanation/USP they were offering for new customers to buy ST3. These were the points told to me by the dealer :-
1. No detuning or Brazil specs for the indian st3. It is same as what is being offered in other markets. The indian specs are derived from the wheel and the UK specs are from the crank.
2. The top speed is 240 kmph without any modifications.
3. Even Z800 has bhp far less than what is claimed.
4. Triumph can offer some performance mods for an additional cost and the cost details will be revealed only after paying the booking amount.

I just listened to the above points and came out of the showroom.

Today, Jaikant from Keerthi Triumph mentioned a hike of around 5% which would translate to close to 50k! Substantial! considering the last hike was in October and they've done themselves no favors since!

That said HD has also hiked prices by around 20k and I'm sure Kawasaki will follow to pass on the increased excise duty

"Few" of them (street owners) were not happy, they along with bonnie owners have given a legal notice. Most are Bonnie owners is what i understand, so i am not sure how this is going to unravel, they (bonnie's) stood a better chance engaging conversation and addressing other more serious issues like parts availability. Saw atleast 4 crashed bonnies parked awaiting parts, this is quite saddening scene, to even see.

Triumph should offer some real assistance in providing such frequent damage parts inventory readily available at major dealerships, esp considering our road and riding conditions.

This is quite disheartening! I thought they learned the lessons, now if someone is keeping up this line. GOD SAVE them.

Price hike is applicable for all automobiles, please refer to the excise duty hike here (Jan 2015: Reduced excise duty comes to an end. Car prices to climb)
