– 2001 Triumph TT600
The TT600 is Triumph’s most focused high-performance bike yet: a fast, supremely agile machine that is equally at home on road or track. Its 16-valve, liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine produces a competitive 110PS (108bhp) with impressive midrange torque for a middleweight. On its introduction the TT600’s sophisticated fuel-injection system was a first for the class, and it has since been further refined to optimise response right across the rev range.
Chassis design is based around a hugely rigid twin-spar aluminium frame, which holds multi-adjustable suspension of the highest quality. Riders from the world of grand prix racing joined Triumph’s own highly experienced test riders to develop the chassis, primarily on the racetrack. The result is a bike that has won universal praise for its stunning blend of quick-steering agility and remarkable high-speed stability. Specially designed, ultra-lightweight cast aluminium wheels also contribute to outstanding cornering ability, while twin front disc brakes and four-piston calipers provide fierce yet supremely controllable stopping power.
