A modern classic. An entry-level Triumph. Ducati Scrambler competitor. Or simply a large capacity, torquey motorcycle, which, in a welcome change, isn’t intimidating at all. Say hello to the Triumph Street Twin, which might look retro, resemble the older Bonneville and seem simple, but is brand new and a whole lot more modern than before.
The Street Twin is a generation ahead of the old Bonnie in the truest sense. It has a new engine, new frame, new cycle parts, completely new styling, and some handy electronic aids. Plus, when you walk up close, get astride and spend sometime riding it, you learn, it’s all for the better. And not just for newbie riders, mind, but for a motorcyclist in general.
