2016 Triumph Street Twin
The new 2016 Triumph Street Twin receives the new responsive Bonneville 900cc engine that delivers a peak torque figure of 80Nm at a low 3200 rpm. Triumph calls this “a much more dynamic, almost urban, slightly more youthful riding bike”. With the touch of a fingertip you are to be able to scroll through the key features on the new digital clock’s digital menu system. The 2016 Triumph Street Twin rides with a low seat height and is said to have come up with a comfortable riding stance allowing you to ride comparatively longer distances. If you want another look at it, the 2016 Triumph Street Twin First Ride Review is available so you can be more informed.
