Triumph Sprint GT, The 2013 Model
So much more than just a traditional sports tourer, the Sprint GT is powered by a proven, capable and punchy 1050cc triple, comes with sleek, attractive and original styling and offers sports bike performance with the comfort of a touring bike. Triumph built the Sprint GT to look sophisticated with style. Designers continued its engine’s triple theme in the three-headlight front end and the three dials in the dash. Just look at the Sprint GT and you know this is a bike for the discerning, serious motorcycle rider. It really is a do-anything motorcycle, so you’re as comfortable slipping through city traffic as you are crossing continents. The Sprint GT is also outstanding value for money, because of the amount of equipment it comes with, like the capacious, purpose-built three box pannier system you get standard and the comprehensive onboard computer. Heated Grips, Touring Screen and Gel Seat allow you to tour in comfort, whatever the weather. Put it all together, the Sprint GT is probably all the motorcycle you’ll ever need.
Designed by long-distance riders for long-distance riders. That’s why the GT has the 1050cc triple renowned for power, reliability and soul. That’s why the GT has a fuel tank that’ll cover 200 miles. That’s why the GT has an uprated headlight an extended swing arm for better stability and that’s why the GT has up to 117 litres of luggage capacity with an accessory top box including 12v electronics.
Triumph’s 1050cc triple engine uprated and good for 130PS as well as 108Nm of torque. The new ECU helps deliver smoother throttle response, more power and torque and improved fuel consumption. A 200 mile fuel range for more time between stops. More horsepower. More everyday performance.
The main twin-spar aluminium beam frame carried over from the revered ST whilst the 43mm front forks have uprated internals for improved control and damping. Lighter wheels shod with ZR17 120/70 (front) and 180/55 (rear) tyres for grip and durability. Longer single swing arm for better stability and uprated suspension with remote pre-load adjuster wheel which can be changed by hand.
