Triumph Motorcycles launched their most awaited product – the Street Twin at the 2016 Auto Expo. Positioned below the Bonneville T120, the Street Twin is the new entry-level model in Triumph’s global line-up.
The Street Twin has been Triumph’s one of the biggest projects. This motorcycle has been built from ground up and gets a new chassis and suspension setup. The blacked-out frame, engine, side panels and the cast alloy wheels complement the bike’s sporty character. A low seat makes the motorcycle accessible to a wider range of audience.
The Street Twin employs an 899cc high torque engine which has been tuned to deliver 18 per cent more torque in the low and mid-range than the previous Bonneville. The parallel twin engine is mated to a six-speed transmission and churns out 80Nm of torque. Triumph has equipped the Street Twin with modern technology like ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, and LED lamps. These features are a welcome move considering the fact that the Street Twin is an entry-level model. For social network savvy riders, the bike is also equipped with USB charging socket to take care of the long distance needs. Along with these features, the British manufacturer is also offering quite a lot of accessories for the Street Twin.
The Triumph Street Twin is available in five paint schemes - cranberry red, aluminium silver, matt black, jet black and phantom black. In terms of the competitions, the Street Twin has the Ducati Scrambler and the Harley-Davidson Superlow.
