The Sprint ST is a bike that defies compromises. Sporty enough to carve corners effortlessly but with levels of comfort that make long distance touring a delight. Essentially a stunning blend of poise, power and all round practicality.
Powered by Triumph's highly-acclaimed 1050cc, fuel injected, three-cylinder engine, the Sprint ST has huge reserves of torque for linear drive in any gear and great reserves of horsepower for when it's needed. Peak power is an impressive 125PS at 9,250rpm while peak torque of 103Nm arrives at just 7,500rpm.
Matching the Sprint ST's sublime engine is a superb aluminium beam frame chassis that creates a composed yet fast-steering motorcycle. High quality 43mm cartridge-type telescopic forks, adjustable for spring preload, give fine control while the rear shock is remotely adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping. A pair of powerful four-piston front brake calipers mated to 320mm floating discs provides superb stopping power.
The Sprint ST's look is both practical and stylish. The high, pulled back handlebars have been tailored to give a relaxed riding position. Styling cues, such as the triple front headlights, triple exhaust exits and LED rear light complement each other fluidly. Fuel capacity is a useful 20 litres (4.4 gal).
Further expanding the Sprint ST's touring role are the colour matched factory designed waterproof hard panniers that are fitted as standard, which feature an improved locking mechanism for 2010.
The Sprint ST is available in two colour options - Phantom Black and Tornado Red - both of which are also available with optional ABS.
