Triumph Twin Street Retro 2016 for Hipsters
You cannot say that the Triumph Classics range is just economic, but in 2016 the new range itself will be more accessible than the other model. It will be the Triumph Street Twin 2016, with a new engine capacity of 900 cc versus 1,200 cc of Bonneville T120 and clearly compete with the Ducati Scrambler.
The ergonomics of the Twin Triumph Street is designed to make the life easier for the motorist, with a compact tank height neutral narrow seat, footrests and handlebars just below the pilot … all in order to achieve an upright riding position for quiet Cruises. The design is classic with round lenses, carburetors or misleading retro escape, but what really lurks inside.
More powerful but easier
Yes, although the Street Twin is intended for less hardcore bikers, that does not mean that it has not updated the upward thrust of the engine. We know the maximum torque, 80 Nm at only 3,200 rpm, which is 18% more than the outgoing Bonneville. An additional attraction is that Triumph promises with the Euro 4 approval under his arm and liquid cooling that the average consumption is reduced by over a third.
The Twin Triumph Street boasts classic in its aesthetic, but its dynamics will be less retro to enjoy disconnect able ABS brakes, ride-by-wire, assistant to optimize the operation of the clutch, traction control … as retro is still double preload adjustable rear shock. The new electronics is also reflected in the instrumentation, and a small LCD screen allows you to configure these new options.
Triumph has spared kits and accessories that everyone can find their Twin Street to taste:
Scrambler Version: With high exhaust Vance & Hines, additional protections or removing the rear fender.
Brat Version Tracker: More sports with Vance & Hines handlebars, seat in black or numbered plaque,
Urban Kit: With Single leather seat, handlebars specific style Ace, tinted dome, retro panniers, etc.
A new very interesting and well promoted can sell like hotcakes.
