2012 Triumph Sprint GT
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.
