Triumph Motorcycles India is gearing up to launch the 2020 Triumph Street Triple R soon, according to HT Auto. As per the report, the roadster is likely to hit the showrooms in the coming weeks. Several Triumph dealers across the country have started accepting unofficial bookings for the motorcycle. When launched, it will be positioned under the top-spec 2020 Street Triple RS.
The 2020 Street Triple R looks identical to the Street Triple RS with a dual-split headlight setup and a short opaque extended visor. The roadster offers a fully-digital instrument console along with a chiseled tank, a stepped-up seat, and an exposed under seat frame. On the rear, it houses an LED taillight unit with a small chrome-finished exhaust canister.

The 2020 Street Triple R comes with dual disc brakes on the front and a single disc brake on the rear. For additional safety, it offers dual-channel ABS. The suspension duties on the motorcycle are handled by fully-adjustable Showa suspension. For better grip and improved handling, it comes equipped with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires.
When launched, the 2020 Street Triple R is likely to be priced somewhere between Rs. 9.70 lakh and Rs. 10.30 lakh (ex-showroom). In terms of rivalry, it will go against the 2020 Kawasaki Z900, the BMW F 900 R and the KTM 790 Duke.
