British superbike maker Triumph Motorcycles on Monday launched the 2017 Street Triple S in India at Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The new Triumph is the base model of the Street Triple series, which has two other models -- Street Triple R and the top end Street Triple RS.

The new Street Triple S is powered by a 765 cc, three-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, which churns out 110 bhp of power when mated to a six-speed gearbox. It comes with switchable traction control, antilock braking system for safety, and LCD instrument pack and DRL headlights.

The company expects to sell close to 250-300 units of the new bike in the current year.

“We expect to sell in the range of 1,200-1300 units during the year and out of that, Street Triple S is likely to account for 250-300 units,” Triumph Motorcycles India managing director Vimal Sumbly said at the launch.

The company has already opened bookings for the model and deliveries from its 14 dealerships are expected to begin from the next week.

Triumph is making the new Street Triple S at its Manesar plant in Haryana, where it assembles 20% of offerings in India. The company plans to ramp up its local assembling to 90% by 2018.

As of now, most of its products are imported from Thailand and the UK.

The company, which follows June-May fiscal, expects to locally produce nearly 200 units in the ongoing year.

“We are emphasising on Made in India, and next year we will have around 1,200 units locally produced,” he added.
