2020 Triumph Street Triple RS
Triumph Street Triple was one of the best selling triumph motorcycle in India ,later they launched RS version which was tuned for more power and was equipped with fancy hardware ,hence RS was the most powerful bike in its segment and it got great power to weight ratio . For 2020, Triumph has provided the Street Triple RS with fresh styling, updated TFT dash graphics and functionality, improved ride modes, and the addition of auto-blip downshift to the shift assist. Better still, the flagship Street Triple RS has a claimed 9-percent boost in midrange output while maintaining the top-end horsepower punch of its predecessor.
Triumph provides robust linear power delivery from basement revs to its 12,750-rpm rev limit. Triumph credits a combination of revised intake ducts, a shorter-duration exhaust cam profile providing less valve overlap, and improved flow of the new twin-catalyst exhaust system featuring a midrange-smoothing balance pipe adjoining the three head pipes.
The newly styled TFT dash offers a choice of four display layout options, three of which provide variations of a large stylish bar graph tachometer, speedometer, and gear position indicator along with scrollable info providing trip computer, fuel economy, lap timer, and more. A fourth layout divides the display in half with a very small tachometer on the right side to allow room on the left for displaying turn-by-turn navigation, phone/music controls, and GoPro camera status via an accessory Bluetooth connectivity module.
Triumph has optimized the selectable ride modes labeled Track, Sport, Road, and Rain to better suit the engine’s improved performance. These modes offer factory preset levels for throttle response, traction control, and ABS, while an additional Rider mode allows full customization of the various parameters. Modes can be switched on-the-fly, however entering Track mode or turning TC off requires the bike to be stationary.
With the combination of auto-blip shift assist, slipper clutch, and top-shelf Brembo M50 Monoblock , shedding speed is piece of cake for this new RS. and for the suspension duties , RS is paired with a Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) up front, the fully adjustable Öhlins STX 40 shock .
