Triumph Motorcycles presented the 2019 Triumph Street Twin at Intermot in Cologne, showing technical updates of its best-selling model.
British Triumph thoroughly transformed the brand’s budget model, which is much more popular in the world than its more elite versions like Tiger, Bonneville or Thruxon.
In 2019, Street Twin acquired first of all technical innovations, namely: the traditional for the brand two-cylinder in-line engine in the amount of 900 cm3 became more productive by as much as 18%. Productivity increased from 54 to 64 hp, alas, the torque did not change its performance (80 Nm). But they raised the top level of the revolutions, henceforth the row deuce spins up to 7500 rpm (the previous figure was 7000). This makes it much less likely to crack the gearbox, which contributes to a more comfortable ride.
Among other things, the Triumph Street Twin 2019 received a cool bonus – the front 4-piston caliper Brembo, which works in tandem with a 310 mm brake disc and ABS system. We took care of elementary traction control, as well as included several modes of engine operation.
Appearance was not ignored: new copies of the rims were fixed, more comfortable sitting due to the thickened cushion, which added 40 mm height to the saddle, and other material of the seat trim. Matte headlight brackets and a replenished color range complete the picture.
If the classic performance seems unsatisfactory to you – it does not matter! The company has created a catalog in which you will find more than 140 uncommon accessories.
Price is not yet voiced. Estimated start at 730,000 rubles. in the Russian Federation, if you focus on the current generation of the model. Let’s hope that the British pound will not spoil the picture in 2019 and prices will remain within the limits of stability.
