Look up the Triumph Sprint reviews and you will find a barrage of accolades and love. I have struggled with the idea of selling the bike but its my only transport and I do need to purchase a car. I just did the 36,000 mile tune up and additional add ons for $1500 and can show the receipt. The bike is running like butter. I just rode to Santa Cruz and back last weekend and it's like new. New Avon tires front and back.
You will turn lots of heads riding by on this bike, she's a beauty.
Just paid the registration so good until April 2022.

....some reviews....(google this bike and you will love it like I do)


My first reaction was pleasant surprise. This is a remarkably well-behaved machine, a thoroughbred, not just a high-spirited racer. The throttle is responsive, but Triumph tuned the Sprint to put the power in the middle, not all at the low end. The Sprint has controlled acceleration. It allowed me to ride it, not simply hang on and pray.

The braking system on this bike is probably the best in its class – On the front tyre, you have a 4 piston, twin 320mm floating disc brakes and a single 2 piston, 255mm single disc rear brake. For an additional price, you can opt for a ABS package, completing the package and proving that Triumph places rider safety above everything else.


There is a reason why this tourer looks like a sports bike – Not many people know that the fairing on the Sprint ST was designed keeping wind resistance in mind. It just so happens that a sports bike fairing is the best design if you want to protect against the wind. That is why the bike looks imposing and is easy to confuse with a sports bike.

The bike has super fuel efficiency – The average mileage on the bike is 40 mpg. But some observers have noted that their bikes give up to 55 mpg. If you fill a full tank, the bike can easily get you 200 miles. Another surprise is the 6000-mile service interval.

Final words? The Triumph Sprint ST is probably the best touring bike from its generation. The bike is handsome, smooth, comfortable and has a flair that helps it cover large distances with ease. It also has a sportbike feel which means the bike handles better than many other bikes in its class.


And 3,500 RPM gave me lots of speed for my first ride - about 90-95 kmph in top gear. Within a few kilometers, I began imagining myself in a multi-hued, full-body leather suit. I wondered why I had taken so long to appreciate this sort of bike...

Within a few days I had put 500 kms on the ST and taken it to the limits of the local roads - and my riding abilities. The week stretched into a month. Triumph didn't seem eager to take the bike back (and I was conveniently away from the phone most of the time). I garnered 1,000 kilometers of accumulated fun and exhilaration on the ST. I never lost the sheer for-the-hell-of-it joy of twisting the throttle and zooming out of the traffic to pass into the clear zone so quickly and easily. I discovered new backroads where I could open her up and tuck into curves and corners with unrivalled glee.
