Should I buy one?
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.
