Congrats on the new buy . My BIL has this bike and he just enjoys the ride especially long rides.

However, be cautious on the below:
1. City rides will make you tired and heat will be felt (I have seen myself when I drove from JP Nagar to EC via BTM layout traffic for 2 days)
2. Low ground clearance will hit and break the side stand if you drive inattentively(I do not use word careless specifically because, even if you are careful while driving and if your attention is somewhere else while crossing humps, the side stand gets hit and will break. This will hit heavily since parts are tooooo costly (Not just too costly)

In fact, my dream was to buy a used Triumph (Bonneville) but it was for daily office commute. But since I felt the heat during my 2 days office commute test drive, and due to low GC, I ended up going with Bajaj Dominar

Thank you so much. Things are slightly different in Bangalore. The "agents" are pretty much part of life, as per my experience. Sometimes it's just better to pay off the 2k, rather than take the headache of visiting and haggling with these guys.

Do you mind sharing what offer were you getting on the Street Triple? Does the Striple have slipper clutch?
I'm extremely happy I decided to go for Triumph. In fact, I'm mainly a car guy and after selling the 250hp 1.8 TSI, I wanted to save money for the BMW 328i (used one) and do it up. But just decided to cancel that and pay for the Street Twin.

On-road cost:
Street Twin: 9,70 change
Street Triple: 11,70 change

For the Triple, I was getting 70k worth of arrow exhaust free or accessories worth the equivalent amount. Additionally 0% interest on loan, if taken for 2 years for HDFC premium customers. So this was very interesting.

I will describe in detail why I did not choose the Triple in a later post.

Triple RS has Assist and slip clutch
Triple S has no such information on the website, but the SA told me it allows some form of slip assist during hard braking. Not sure on this at all.

The Twin has slip assist and TC.

Be very mindful of the PDI process and the overall motorcycle cleanliness by the showroom guys. They messed up mine during delivery.

BTW I took delivery of 2018 ST very recently.
Congrats on the same. I was about to buy the Triple 765 (2018), but backed out due to multiple reasons.

Thank you so much. The heat and GC i'm aware of. In fact, I first TD'd the Twin Scrambler... That is at another level compared to the Steet Twin. They do heat up.

On the GC front, I found it to be slightly better than Triple. And the stand, I'm planning to remove it on day 1 and replace with a RE stand (as suggested by other people on T-BHP)

The funniest part of MoRTH is, while they are encouraging everyone to eliminate middlemen when it comes to registration or special numbers, they do not allow you to sign up itself, if you are from KARNATAKA.

https://vahan.parivahan.gov.in/fancy...c/signup.xhtml

Have a look at the state list, there is no Karnataka. How is anyone supposed to signup and block the numbers online?

They do however allow you to check if a number is available with any RTO in Karnataka.

More sad news people.

MoRTH had banned registration for new vehicles across India, few days back. This was due the the manufacturers failing to provide number plates as per MoRTH specs.

Now, Triumph is saying that they cannot do anything before the 12th, as all dealers are meeting on that day to discuss how to take this forward. So add another 5-7 days after that, and we are talking about delivery only around 18th of this month at the earliest.

KEERTHI Triumph on the other hand is forcing its customers to register under KA-51 (instead of 01,02,03,04, or 05) if they want their vehicle. Else it's an endless waiting game now.

Apparently, CBU vehicles are having problems. CKDs are fine. Got my Duke in 2 days along with registration. So this is really frustrating. On top of that KEERTHI Triumph has the worst SR and CRs possible. No help whatsoever from their end. Can anyone confirm if Kawasaki and others are having the same issue?

My EMI starts in sometime. I'll be paying for a vehicle which is not even allotted to me, forget delivered.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

If KA51 works, i would suggest to get the ST registered and delivered at the earliest. The more time it spends at the dealership, the more painful it becomes!

I recently booked the new street twin and decided to go for the KA-51 registration as it seemed the obvious choice.

Just out of curiosity, did you book the ironstone colour? I saw this bike in the showroom last week which had the sold tag but yet to be registered due to the ongoing HSNP issues.

Hey! Although not keen on anything apart from KA01-05, I had no option but to go for KA51 since VAHAAN4 issues are going on and registrations for CBUs are halted indefinitely. Anyway, got a special number as well and took delivery today after another fiasco (delayed delivery, last minute information).

I picked up the matt ironstone color. What you saw parked there with sold tag is sitting there for at least more than a week now. Along with 2-3 Street Triple RS (sold tag as well). These are people who have refused KA51 and waiting for other options I guess. Not sure. But these are sitting there for a sometime.

I was issued a regular number plate, apparently HSNP only applies for KA01-05 for Bangalore. Electronic City, Mysore Road are exempted, and you can register here if you want immediate delivery.

I'll put up a detailed post on the delivery experience as well as the bike's review from my point of view on Sunday.

Thanks to everyone here, for their help and suggestions.
