In a series of randomness, you might be thinking that I have crossed the limits. But that’s not the case. The XZ Diesel variant of Tata Altroz costs ₹9,98,904 (On-road price). As for the Triumph Street Triple R, you will have to spend ₹9,97,605. Should you go for a track-focused bike or the golden standard hatchback? Well, let’s find out!

Powertrain Comparison | Heart of the Machines!

The diesel engine at the Altroz produces more torque than the petrol engine at the Street Triple R. But when it comes to power, Triumph triumphs over the Altroz. Now that is a totally absurd comparison to make as there is a huge difference between the power-to-weight ratio. I hereby declare the powertrain comparison, ABSURD! But do note that Tata Altroz offers better fuel mileage.
