Triumph Motorcycles’ new Sprint GT (MSRP: $13,199) is expected to be available in U.S. dealerships this fall as an early release 2011 model, according to a Triumph press release.
“The motorcycle market continues to become more refined, which calls for manufacturers to evolve our product lines to provide what customers are demanding,” Jim Callahan, North American marketing manager for Triumph Motorcycles, said in the release. “The Sprint GT blends all of the great performance and style of the Sprint ST with some additional comfort and storage space that sport touring riders are looking for.”
The GT features a new front fairing, which has been restyled to give a sharper and more contemporary look while retaining the distinctive three-light Sprint design. In the cockpit, riders will find a three-dial instrument panel with a large, traditional analogue speedometer and tachometer while the third dial hosts the readout for the onboard computer where the rider can scroll through fuel consumption, range-to-empty, journey time, average speed and clock functions.
The bike also features new 31 liter saddlebags, standard ABS brakes, a 200-mile fuel range, an optional top box that is capable of accommodating two full-sized helmets and a 12-volt power supply that allows “on the go” charging of electrical items, such as laptops and mobile phones.
