Default The 2017 Triumph Street Triple

Triumph Motorcycles will be globally launching the 2017 Street Triple on January 10, 2017. The British motorcycle manufacturer has revealed this launch date through a teaser video. The bike will be launched simultaneously in London and Miami.

The 2017 Street Triple is expected to be powered by a 765 cc engine, and will be equipped with features like ride by wire, slipper clutch, traction control and a full TFT instrument cluster. The new engine will likely be EuroIV compliant. The bike is expected to be built on an updated chassis, with a new swingarm.

Media reports suggest that the new Street Triple will be introduced in four variants, with the top-spec RT and RS trims getting Brembo brakes and Ohlins suspension, and putting out around 125 BHP. On the other hand, the base trim is expected to develop around 110 BHP, while the mid-spec R variant will get Showa suspension and Nissin brakes and will have a power output of around 115 BHP.

Thats one mean looking TFT display!

Watching this and the 2017 KTM Dukes TFT displays makes me think that the next gen bikes are leagues ahead of cars who are still stuck in the old world needle displays.

The bigger questions is when will it be in India.. They are still to bring in the 2016 Speed Triple

At this rate I think we will only see this bike sometime in 2018

  • 118 PS at 12,000 RPM

  • Brembo M4.32 monobloc front brake calipers with radial master cylinder
  • Assist and slip clutch
  • Fully adjustable Showa separate function fork front suspension
  • Fully adjustable Showa RSU
  • Switchable ABS and traction control
  • 5” full-colour TFT instrument pack
  • 4 Riding modes Sport, Road, Rain and Rider
  • High-spec onboard computer, including all the features of the ‘S’ model plus: journey time, average speed, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption, range to empty, two trips and ambient temperature
  • New switchcubes with 5-way joystick control
  • DRL headlights
  • Self cancelling indicators
  • Sporty body-coloured flyscreen with integrated air intake from Speed Triple
  • Premium seat stitching and vinyl
  • Red rear subframe, wheel pinstripes and detailing
  • Low ride height (LRH) model available

and the top-end RS has:
  • 123 PS at 11,700 RPM

It looks just fantastic! More power, traction control and the works.

They should have had the TFT display on all the models. India will most probably get only the base S model which doesn't have it.

But, I will start saving up now.

When Triumph launched the Street Triple in India, owners faced two major issues - Stalling & Detuning. All I am hoping from Triumph India is which ever model (S, R, RS) of Street Triple makes it to India it should be free of stalling issues and should not be detuned.

This would be a primary concern which needs to be addressed before we even drool over whether R & RS would make it to India over the S.

However good/appealing this product looks there's a monster by the name 'Triumph India' who can make that good feeling vanish in a jiffy.

I'd rather wait and watch to see what happens. De-tuning is maybe acceptable to a certain extent of twisted-ness but bikes stalling is not.

I was so tempted to buy one but then read about the detuning fiasco and some bad owner experiences in India. I test drove one in Mumbai in 2014 and since it was just my second test ride of a big bike (the other being Harley Iron 883), I was easily impressed with detuned engine (which I obviously didn't know about until much later). Then came the Z800 and the itching started again but even before I could test ride one, the Navi Mumbai dealership went bust.
I guess I'll just have to ignore these bikes for a few more years until the sales and service reach a certain maturity level.

This is OT, but just to update you.

Kawasaki is launching its Mumbai dealership shortly, next to Triumph at Goregaon on the Western Express highway.

Cheers

This sounds like beautiful inline four music to me. I really, really, really would love to ride the Z1000

Being a Z800 owner you may get invited for the showroom opening ceremony. Please do update us regarding the launch date if you hear anything.

Ending now.

Cheers

Just read a review of the RS...

A bike that weight and geometry with 123bhp is not a machine to be taken lightly. Apparently it will power-wheelie in 2nd gear at expressway speeds.

I can't help thinking the ST is getting a little too "hardcore" for its own good - even the basic model produces 110bhp and in a bike weighing sub-170kg dry that's already more bonkers than a lot of outright race replicas of a few years ago.

In India with 91 octane fuel you may see a couple of % drop, but assuming you don't get a detuned Brazilian model again, that's a very very fast bike. I have ridden the 675R and it was quick enough already - not sure why the extra 90cc was needed to be honest.

I would think Triumph could really do good business if they were to complement the new 765 with a cheaper and more basic entry level version of about 500cc a little while after the 765 launch. All else being equal, that capacity should yield about 75bhp. If they did it by de-stroking the 765 it would be a fair lot more mild mannered at low RPM and love to be revved, which is really a good characteristic for an entry level sportbike.

Anybody who has ridden a Suzuki SV650 or similar sporty bike with that kind of output knows it's more than enough to go a lot faster than it is sensible to on a road.
