    Hi Guys, thanks for helping me out in zeroing on the bike. I picked up another ride altogether after taking test rides of the same at least 4 times for varied lengths of time and in peak Andheri traffic and at times with no traffic at all. I found the bike to be very comfortable and torque is good you can ride at 30kph in 5th gear with little or no heat in heavy traffic.
    Getting home a street triple s 765. Black color. Boy m I happy. Bought all the gear as well.

    Street triple S? Interesting option, had a test ride once, loved the torque on the bike usability in the city and engine didn't heat up too much in traffic, my only concern was the ground clearance that it's even lower than the cbr at just 130mm, rs you can adjust the suspension to battle those hard speed bumps, but still a fantastic bike, do post your initial impressions and full ownership after you've ridden enough to talk and understand the character of the bike, if I ever upgrade, considered the street triple very highly but now Suzuki are launching the gsx s 750 next year at the auto expo it comes with 3 riding modes, 3 level traction control, abs, and that inline 4 from the amazing the gsxr 750, will wait n see how it's priced, I've only heard good things about the bike.

    @Deathwing incidentally I spoke to the Suzuki guys and they said GSX-S750 should be available by Feb 2018. It's an inline 4 with couple of riding modes thrown around to make it safer bike to ride. Power is similar to Striple 765s that's 112HP. I'm also being told that they are going to keep pricing very attractive. Think in the lines of z900. What I don't know if it will be available on CKD platform or CBU, as the latter attracts 22%Tax in Maharashtra compared to 12% tax in CKD. However talking about me, I loved Striple and wouldn't have waited for Suzuki. Just FYI there's a Comparo on youtube of MT-09, Striple 765s, Suzuki GSX-S750, Brutale800 and Z900 from Motorad. Fantastic video must see. Will post pics once I get the hand on Striple.

    Triumph Street Triple S. Apologies for not wearing proper gears in these photographs as it were taken just to show the bike and to take photos of the same, before riding I did wear the entire thing. Have bought proper gear except the knee guards so far.

    Will post a review once I've ridden it for a while. The last two days have been horrible in Mumbai. Didn't take my bike out.

    Congrats for your new possession!

    What is the service interval of your Striple?

    Thanks mate!

    First service is 1000 kms or 1 month, whichever is earlier.
    Second service is 10000 kms or 1 year, whichever is earlier.

    Let me know about the ownership of the striple, lovely bike, very usable in the city, I just wished abs was switchable. Correct me if I'm wrong it's in a different state of tune than the rs, power kicks in much earlier, also let me know how it is over speed breakers and pot holes, the low ground clearance is a pain. I'm willing to wait n see how the Suzuki is priced, reason I'm heavily consider the Suzuki is its got decent amount of tech, if priced below or with the S model, it's definitely worth the money and I have a affiliation with Suzuki, soo I've requested a higher up for a test ride, soo yeah.
