While twins might have been the brand’s focus in 2019, Triumph is gearing up to go big with its triple-cylinder motorcycles in India. There will be three new bikes coming through in 2020. Sadly, it seems like there'll be some notable absentees as well.

Triumph Rocket 3 R
Triumph revamped its torque monster, the Rocket 3, to meet the upcoming Euro 5/BS6 emission norms in 2019. Now arriving with a mammoth 2500cc inline three-cylinder motor, the Rocket 3 pumps out more torque than your neighbor's Maruti Suzuki Swift. The bike was launched at the 2019 India Bike Week at Rs 18 lakh, in its roadster R variant, the only one that’s coming to India.

Street Triple RS
With the competition growing fiercer by the day (the KTM 890 Duke R), Triumph had to fortify the king of the middleweight naked, its Street Triple 765 RS, with mild updates. The engine meets Euro 5 norms, produces the same power as before with a 2Nm bump up in torque. The bug-eyed headlights make way for an angrier LED setup. We did take a spin on it late last year and came back impressed.

Tiger 900
Another one from Triumph’s middleweight portfolio, the Tiger 900 features an all-new 888cc triple powerplant. Now arriving in the much easier-to-relate GT and Rally variants (unlike the XC and XR of the Tiger 800), the Tiger 900 looks slim and stretched with the LEDs imparting it a distinct new look. Triumph has also managed to shed some flab with the 900, the standard GT model being 6kg lighter than its corresponding XRx model of the Tiger 800.

Also onboard are IMU-based electronics, adjustable suspension on all but the base model and Brembo Stylema calipers. Also new on the Rally variants are sidewall-laced wire spoke rims that will finally come with tubeless tyres. Expect the new Tiger 900 trims to cost Rs 1 lakh - Rs 1.5 lakh more than their respective 800 predecessors.
