Triumph Motorcycle dealers in the country have accepting bookings for the Street Twin, their most affordable motorcycle now. This Street Twin replaces the Bonneville to earn this tag. The bike that was revealed alongside Bonneville’s new range a couple of weeks ago is expected to reap more sales for the British manufacturer.
The dealers in Mumbai and Delhi have already started taking bookings for this bike at Rs 1 lakh. However, they aren’t giving any time frame for the deliveries as the official launch date of the Street Twin hasn’t been revealed as yet. But we believe, Triumph will launch the Street Twin at the upcoming 2016 Auto Expo, which will be held in the first week of February. However, delieveries are expected to beging only in April 2016.
The 2016 Street Twin gets a contemporary design approach coupled with some modern features making the bike quite an attractive proposition. The clean lines, minimalistic bodywork, upswept silencer and with the option of choosing from a wide range of accessories, the Street Twin will surely catch some attention.
Powering this bike is a new 900cc parallel twin engine that delivers a peak torque of 80Nm from as low as 3200rpm. The generated power is delivered via a six-speed gearbox. The Street Twin is equipped with the next generation ride-by-wire fuel injection and engine management system that will help in smooth throttle response.
Mainly focussed at younger riders, the Street Twin is not just lighter but also comes with a low seat height and a narrow tank-seat interface for easy city riding. The British manufacturer has equipped this bike with ABS, traction control, engine immobiliser and head mounted USB socket for travellers who spend lot of time on the roads. The Street Twin will be sold as a completely-knocked-down (CKD) unit and we are expecting Triumph to launch the bike with a marginal increase in price over the Bonneville.
