    First ride of the 2016 Triumph Street Twin

    Earlier this week, journalists from across the world visited Valencia, Spain, for the first ride of our 2016 Street Twin. First impressions were universally positive, with online reviews articles already appearing on MCN and Bike Social.

    The most contemporary, fun and accessible new addition to our new Bonneville family, the Street Twin offers a perfect blend of unique character, distinctive sound and stripped-back styling for a dynamic riding experience.

    Featuring our newly developed 900cc ‘high torque’ parallel twin engine, the iconic new model delivers an impressive 80Nm peak torque figure at 3,200 rpm – an 18% increase on our outgoing 2015 comparable Bonneville. Combine this with a 36% increase in fuel economy and even longer service intervals (from 6,000-10,000 miles) and the Street Twin becomes the obvious choice for any rider – novice or expert.

    Inspired by the new wave custom scene and designed with personalisation in mind, the Street Twin can also be customised using over 150 stylish dealer fit accessories. Three new Inspiration Kits – Scrambler, Brat Tracker and Urban – are available as starting points, making it easier than ever to make your bike your own.
