I agree with your thoughts. Makes me wonder if Triumph India should continue to sell the older 675 (and detune it further, for differentiation) at a cheaper price tag.

The new Street, being more equipped and advanced, may be priced quite a bit higher than the current one.

A 75 bhp model at around 8 lakh OTR would sell well here, I think.
