‘Head­ing in a new di­rec­tion’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Features -

The Street Twin rep­re­sents a new di­rec­tion for Tri­umph, per­haps mak­ing it even more im­por­tant than its big­ger, more ex­pen­sive sib­lings. While the other new Bon­nies rep­re­sent a di­rect link to the cur­rent range and the orig­i­nal (nearly 60 year- old T120), the Street casts a wider net, tar­get­ing a larger au­di­ence of new and ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers alike. It’s light­weight, han­dles bril­liantly, has a beau­ti­fully smooth en­gine, and is laden with cut­ting- edge tech­nol­ogy mak­ing it softer and eas­ier to ride than the out­go­ing Bon­neville.

If you want a near di­rect re­place­ment for your air- cooled Bon­nie, the new Street Twin isn’t re­ally it – but if you want a mod­ern naked retro that’s easy to ride, and jaw-achingly smile in­duc­ing, then you won’t be dis­ap­pointed.
