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.
On the mechanical front, the 2020 Street Triple R draws power from a BS6-compliant 765cc in-line three-cylinder engine, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It produces 114hp of maximum power at 12,000rpm and a peak torque of 77Nm at 9,400rpm.
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.
