The Triumph Sprint GT was always considered one of the best sports tourers from the market and there is no wonder why, as it is packed with a comprehensive list of smart features that were designed to make your ride as enjoyable as it can be.

Starting with the sleek style and finishing with the twin spar aluminium frame, the Triumph Sprint GT was especially designed to offer superior touring performances.

The motorcycle is built around a liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3 cylinder engine with a capacity of 1050cc. The engine is mated to a six speed gearbox with wet, multi-plate clutch.

As far as practicality is concerned, the Triumph Sprint GT is available with spacious 31 litre, colour-coded panniers and a practical topbox all of which offers a combined luggage capacity of 117 litres.

The name of this bike is the perfect way to describe its all-world capabilities. When you need something that can drive up short - and long - distances at a drop of a hat, the Triumph Sprint GT is as good an option as you can find.

Offering a unique blend of sporting ability and touring practicality, the Sprint GT is the picture of versatility, whether its through the design, the performance credentials, or even its handling capabilities.

One of the most distinguished features of the Sprint GT are the high-quality color-coded saddlebags, all of which are standard on the Sprint GT and operated with the ignition key. Each saddlebag can hold up to 31 liters of luggage and have been designed to hold a large full-faced helmet. In addition to an impressive cargo space, the Sprint GT also makes a name for itself for being a comfortable ride for both the rider and the passenger. At the forefront of the Sprint GT is a dual seat that’s both roomy and generously padded. A large grab rail is also fitted as standard and doubles as a luggage rack. New reflector-type headlights have been developed to ensure safety and luminous lighting, especially during the nighttime. The Sprint GT’s high specification also includes an onboard computer as part of the three-dial cockpit layout, featuring a clock, fuel consumption, journey time, range-to-empty, and average speed readouts.

More than just the comprehensive design details, the Sprint GT does its name proud courtesy of a 1050cc three-cylinder engine that produces 128 brake horsepower and 80 lb/ft of torque. Likewise, the chassis, which was developed from the Sprint ST, features a stylish aluminum frame with single-sided swing arm while four-piston caliper brakes are developments of the Sprint ST’s items, with ABS fitted as standard.

Today Triumph revealed their all-new Sprint GT motorcycle as a slightly torqueier, more powerful and – why not – more elegant version of the Sprint ST . Developing 130bhp at 9200rpm and 80lb.ft at 6300rpm, the Grand Tourer is now 5bhp and 5lb.ft of torque more capable than the Sport Touring model it arrives to back up and it is all achieved through ECU and exhaust changes. This means less investment for Triumph, which translates into a £9499 ($14K) starting price.

Starting from the idea that they have to “improve the Sprint ST’s practicality without transcending into pure tourer territory,” designers redesigned Sprint GT’s headlights and then added standard 31-liter panniers and an optional topcase. The underseat exhaust is now replaced by a single right-side one, while the 43mm forks have been revised and the rear shock is now remote preload adjustable. As expected, ABS is now standard.

Overall, the 2010 Triumph Sprint GT looks like a potent and much cheaper VFR1200F competitor and yet still retains that British look and feel of the original Triumph Sprint ST from five years ago. make sure you see the official video after the jump.
