Spesification 2011 Triumph Sprint GT

Triumph has built its share of outrageous motorcycles-the "Nuclear Red" Speed Triple jumps to mind, as does the Rocket III in any color. The Sprint GT is not one of those bikes. The motorcycle market continues to become more refined, which calls for manufacturers to evolve our product lines to provide what customers are demanding,” says Jim Callahan, North American marketing manager for Triumph Motorcycles.

Powered by an updated 1050cc Triple, the GT promises a spirited ride with a claimed 130 horsepower (five more than the 2010 ST) and wonderful exhaust note. What make it a better touring bike are the new 31-liter hard saddlebags, ABS brakes and claimed 200-mile range.

Performance is taken care of by an updated version of Triumph's legendary 1050cc triple. First introduced in the 2005 Sprint ST, the latest incarnation of this great engine has been updated to deliver increased power, torque and usability. With 130bhp on hand, the Sprint GT offers excellent real world performance, with development focused on power delivery in the mid-range rather than chasing peak power.
