Prabhas, the popular actor from the Telegu film industry, shot to the fame after the release of Baahubali. He was recently spotted riding a Triumph Street Triple RS. What’s happening here? Let’s find out.
Prabhas is shooting for a new movie Sahoo in which he will be seen with Shraddha Kapoor. The movie is an action thriller where Prabhas would be seen doing a lot of stunts and the image on the Triumph Street Triple RS suggests that we will also see a few motorcycle scenes. Prabhas himself shared the picture on his social media account and the bike can be seen with a backdrop of a huge crane with caterpillar tracks.
The bike is placed on a platform, which is used for shooting the motorcycle with a motion effect, even though the bike is fixed. However, there is no helmet visible in the vicinity. We do not know if it will be there in the post-production version of the movie.
Triumph bikes have been used even in Hollywood movies and probably this is the first time we will see a Triumph motorcycle in an Indian movie. A lot of Bollywood actors like Salim Khan and Amit Sadh also own Triumph motorcycles.
The Triumph Street Triple RS is the top-of-the-line variant of the naked model that was launched in India last year. It is powered by a 765-cc, inline three-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 121 Bhp and 77 Nm. It gets a six-speed transmission. The bike gets its braking power from 310-mm disc brakes at front and 220-mm disc brake at the rear. The ABS is standard.
The Street Triple RS is loaded with features and it gets a quick shifter too. There are five different modes that can make the bike suitable for any situation. It also gets coloured TFT instrumentation with a host of features like Bluetooth connectivity and bike data. The bike is priced at Rs. 10.55 lakh, ex-showroom, India.
