2023 Triumph Street Triple Range: Exterior Styling 

The 2023 Triumph Street Triple roadster range will bring with it significant updates in terms of styling. The Street Triple has been made sportier than its predecessor off the back of a new fly screen, a sculpted fuel tank, raised tail section, and modified fuel tank extensions. However, the pair continues with the brand's bug-eyed LED headlights at the front.  

Dimensionally, the upcoming Triumph R and the RS will have seat heights of 836mm and 826mm, respectively. Both will get a new 12mm wider handlebar, making it easier for a rider to turn into a corner with less steering effort. 

In addition, the Triumph R motorcycle will be available in two colour options in India - Silver Ice and Crystal White. While the Triumph RS will go on sale in three paint schemes in our home market, which include  Cosmic Yellow, Carnival Red, and Silver Ice.
