dchahal/Ricci, Among all other videos on RS, I found this to be informative. In the video, it discusses some of the points that you guys have brought in this thread (right from comparing the dyno charts of both RS and R, suspension, etc.,)

Yes, saw this yesterday, quite informative video. I am putting links and texts to the related stories below:

MCN

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/mcn-mo...o-power-1050r/
After testing both bikes on MCN’s regular dyno (BSD in Peterborough), to my surprise the new Triumph Street Triple 765 RS made 126.27hp @ 11,750rpm and 59lbft @9500rpm at the rear wheel, which has made me wide-eyed as it’s actually 4hp more than claimed. To put things in to perspective, the 2016 Speed triple made 128.52hp @ 9250rpm and 77.49lbft @8000rpm, which is a bit shy of the claimed figures by Triumph.

Visordown
http://www.visordown.com/road-tests/...s-yamaha-mt-09
http://www.visordown.com/road-tests/...-triple-765-rs
Triumph’s 765cc three-cylinder motor, which makes a claimed 123hp and 57lb/ft torque. We stuck the RS on the dyno at Steve Jordan Motorcycles in Bookham and it made 121.48hp at 12,153rpm and 55.57lb/ft at 9,666rpm.

Scorpion
https://www.scorpion-exhausts.com/tr...xhaust-systems

Vashfox.com
http://www.vashfox.com/passage-banc-...triple-765-rs/

These are some references. Although there is no issue if the claimed crank HP is 121 but more is always better and there surely is more

wait. The older model has more power and torque at lower RPMs than the newer? That is weird.

I think the old model being talked about is the SPEED Triple while the new one being compared is the STREET Triple.

Oops. Missed that. Assumed the comparison would be with the predecessor.

Rode the S some days ago. The feel is very different, I mean very different and "S" felt even easier than 675. As you sit with stock preload settings at rear, the bike sags like a cushion, ride quality and power delivery both are soft (comparing with RS otherwise its sharp on its own) and forgiving. There is so much difference in the ride height between S and RS that a person sees tip toeing and easy flat footing between them.

So, as a first big bike "S" is amazing with safety net of ABS and TC, while that low weight and easy handling is boon for India. "RS" will appeal only to the guys/gals who will take an informed decision and know what they are getting into, bcz if you just want a big burly SBK Busa is just 3.35 lac away at 13.35 and Ninja 1000 is cheaper at 11.25. If we talk about value Busa retails at 14599 USD, Ninja 1000 at 12199 USD, S at 10000 USD and RS at 12500 USD before taxes in USA, which are quite comparable even here in India as all 4 discussed bikes are CKD. Z900 which looks like a no brainer at 8.7 lacs on road here retails for 8799 USD before taxes in USA, which is almost same value as above bikes.

Although, there is still a big amount of tax involved with CKD bikes but with all these bikes which are CKD now, we are saved from that 140% plus tax we were paying on CBUs erlier. For example Yamaha MT09 costs 12.55 lacs plus here in India while it retails at 8999 USD before taxes in USA, where is the value? and Yamaha says we are not ready. I went little off topic but still this is the truth.

Thanks dchahal for your feedback on the comfort part of S vs RS. This certainly helps for those who are confused of choosing between the S and RS.

I think people nearing 6 feet in height may not see a big difference in the saddle height of the S and RS. Though I rode the S few months back, I like to ride the S and RS back to back just to get an experience of my own on the ride quality difference. Apart from all other factors, just the TFT display alone can pull the hearts of people who are deciding between the S and RS (irrespective of what they choose).

Regarding the STriple sales, I am pleasantly surprised that they are doing well even though the price is quite on the higher side compared to the competitors.

Enjoying the running in period with Betty. Got the Puig frame sliders for her and the triumph dealership was extremely helpful in sourcing these for me and installing as well. Some pics of Betty

Sorry i dont know where are you getting you numbers from. According to bikewale the ex-showroom prices are

765RS - 10.55L
Hayabusa - 15.5L

So thats a cool 5L or 50% premium for the busa. And i am not even counting the diferential due to higher road tax (~20% in KA) + insurance. Definitely not in the same price bracket.

The price as per the Suzuki website is 13.87 ex showroom. I wouldn't blindly trust bikewale etc. anyways, the two bikes are as different as chalk and cheese and shouldn't be compared. My two cents.

Wow! The LCD screen looks amazing. But am sure it takes some getting used to. The layout of information seems completely new.

Dear friend, I am not referring bikewale. I bought RS for 12 lac on Road and my friend got Busa for 15.35 lac on Road recently. You are referring one bike's ex-showroom while other's on Road price. Cheers.

Thanks Nilesh.

The screen did not take any time getting used to. There are plenty of options on how you want to set it up (display wise). Irrespective of the setup, the information that is always available is speed, mode in which the bike is, the gear, time and ambient temperature.

the dash beneath the speedo can be fully customized as per the information you want to see and is extremely easy to use with a switch on the left handle bar. Following options are available to chose from

- 2 trip meters
- Lap timer
- Coolant Temp
- Fuel consumption details (instant, long term and distance to empty)
- contrast settings
- theme setting (2 themes with 3 options each)
- Service intervals

Cheers
Rohan
