Triumph Street Twin

The Street Twin has acceptable, faultless base design and it surely didn’t need a dramatic overhaul, which is why Triumph didn’t go down that route. The point of convergence for 2019 has been the details. The wheels (an 18/17-inch front/rear combo) features a machined design that’s snazzy, the engine is approximately entirely blacked-out save for the fins and some very classy embellishments complete the treatment. The single-pod instrument cluster in a moment gets a black surround with a small and tasteful ‘Bonneville’ metal plaque that sits atop it. Also new are the sides panels, which are perhaps the biggest design, amend to the 2019 model, granting all these from a distance, it won’t strike you as being brand new. The decal fonts are a fraction cooler, too.

Stepping within touching distance of the new Street Twin and the really nice details begin to appear. The headlight bracket is now a brushed aluminum unit and ambiance is very premium, the mirrors appear to be of a higher quality as well, the nicely machined levers are now adjustable and, on the whole, the Twin feels a little more extravagant. Triumph will let you pick bounded by three colors – Matter Ironstone, Korosi Red and Jet Black. Altogether, you’ll hardly be able to tell a 2019 bike from its predecessor if it blurs past you, but to someone looking to own one, the details will serve as strong influencers.

Triumph has been eavesdropping on your bar talk. As a result, the Street Twin right away gets two riding modes – Road and Rain – selectable via a dedicated button on the LHS switchgear pod. This is in extension to traction control, ride-by-wire and ABS, all of which are at present available on the outgoing model as well. It also gets an under seat USB charging socket (also going on the outgoing model) and, in a segment-first, optional heated grips. A tyre pressure monitoring system is attainable as an optional extra. Triumph is offering a list of over 140 accessories that are enrichment not only to the aesthetics but also to the functionality and mechanicals.

If you’re a highway regular, you will get a charge of the fruits of Triumph’s labor because the Street Twin has undoubtedly become more engaging towards the top-end. It’s more ambitious to be ridden hard, and is still as linear and refined as ever, which is an alluring balance. Peak torque remains unchanged 80Nm although this, too, is accomplished at a higher 3,800rpm, as opposed to the older bike’s 3,230rpm. Of significance, however, is the flatter torque curve, which does global long-term tractability huge favors. I do wish Triumph had taken this contingency to finally add a sixth gear to the mix, but the enlightening costs would have reflected in retail prices, something the brand wasn’t too keen on.
