New Triumph Offers Performance and Practicality

Triumph Introduces New Sprint GT

Five years after Triumph introduced the popular 1050cc Sprint ST sports touring bike, the Brits have introduced a new model with more emphasis on the "touring" aspect of "sports touring."

Triumph says the Triumph Sprint GT delivers outstanding real world performance in a practical and stylish package. But this should not be construed that the Sprint GT has lost the sporting edge that made the Sprint ST one of Triumph's most popular bikes.

“The motorcycle market continues to become more refined, which calls for manufacturers to evolve our product lines to provide what customers are demanding,” said Jim Callahan of Triumph Motorcycles North America. “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 newly-styled and better performing 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 comprehensive 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.

Give it a try at a Triumph dealer near you.

Motorcycle Riders to Ride to Work

Motorcycle and scooter riders' 19th annual commuting day is this coming Monday, June 21st. Participation in the yearly demonstration is estimated to triple the number of riders on the road. Motorcycle and scooter groups and organizations actively encourage riders to commute by cycle on this day. On Ride to Work Day, motorcycle and scooter commuters seek improved employer recognition and support for this form of transportation and increased public and government awareness of the positive value of riding.

Adding more commuting motorcycles and scooters makes urban parking easier and traffic flow better, according to Ride to Work, a non-profit advocacy organization. Studies have also shown that across the same distances, riders reach their destinations faster than those using automobiles. Most motorcycles and scooters also consume less resources per mile than automobiles. "Riding to work on this day is fun and highlights the positive value of motorcycling. For many people, riding is a socially responsible form of mobility that saves energy, helps the environment and provides a broad range of other public benefits," stated Andy Goldfine, this year's event organizer.

Make your mark, cast your vote... ride to work on Monday!
