Should I buy one?

Motorcycle Monthly - - New Rider -

If you’re af­ter a retro-styled mo­tor­cy­cle with all the ben­e­fits of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy, based on one of the most pop­u­lar mo­tor­cy­cles to ever make it to mar­ket, you could do a lot worse than the Tri­umph Street Twin. The chas­sis is ex­cep­tional, the torquey en­gine of­fers plenty of power and smooth de­liv­ery, it’s ac­ces­si­ble, learner friendly, and lots (and lots) of fun. Okay, so it’s not Tri­umph’s fastest or most im­pres­sive ma­chine, but it’s a stylish and ver­sa­tile road­ster that brings a new level of re­fine­ment to the iconic Bri­tish par­al­lel twin.

Through­out the three weeks I had it on test, I rode it ever day – and was gen­uinely gut­ted to see it go. Ul­ti­mately, if I had the money spare I’d have one in a heart­beat. It’s also worth not­ing that the Street Twin is the cheap­est model within Tri­umph’s re­vamped fam­ily of en­try-level par­al­lel twin Bon­neville mod­ern clas­sics.
