2011 Triumph Sprint ST
Sports Touring with an emphasis on Sport.
The new Sprint ST has been given a number of improvements to ensure it remains one of the world’s favourite sports-tourers. Updates include new reflector-style triple headlight unit; re-designed cockpit; the same stunning 1050cc inline triple engine, but with latest spec ECU for ultra-smooth throttle response.
Sportier than the GT, the Sprint ST is set to become even more attractive thanks to its new ultra-competitive price.
Sports. Touring. Two words which equally describe Triumph’s great all-rounder.
Equally capable of crossing continents or taking on a track day, the Sprint ST is one of those rare contradictions, a compromise without compromise.
Triumph’s addictive 1050cc triple has been tuned to deliver 127PS, with seamless drive from low rpm. Striking details like the single-sided swingarm, triple outlet underseat exhaust and aerodynamic three headlight cockpit give the Sprint ST a distinctive sporting look, while colour matched panniers, ergonomic seat design and optional ABS give the Sprint ST its outstanding practicality.
A comprehensive range of official Triumph accessories including colour matched top box, centre stand, aero screen, gel seat, heated grips and electrical output sockets further add to the Sprint ST’s touring practicality. Like all Triumph’s the Sprint ST comes with a two year unlimited mileage warranty although, as winner of Motorrad’s 50,000km endurance test in 2007, we don’t expect you will need it.
2011 Triumph Sprint ST Highlights
Performance: In the Sprint ST, Triumph’s renowned 1,050cc triple delivers a throroughly sporting 130PS (128 bhp) at 9,200 rpm and peak torque of a massive 108Nm at just 6,300 rpm. All through a smooth six-speed box and clutch with anti-backlash gear.
Comfort: A superbly designed seat comforts and supports the most sporting of Touring riders.
Practicality: A new high performance reflector-style triple headlight unit gives improved light disttribution and the exhaust re-positioning frees up enough underseat storage space to accommodate Triumph’s accessory U-lock.
Equipment: An all-new Sprint ST comes equipped with onboard computer, fuel consumption, range-to-empty, journey time, average speed and clock functions.
2011 Triumph Sprint ST Features and Benefits
The Sprint ST houses a fantastic 1050cc fuel injected three-cylinder engine, the very essence of what makes a Triumph special. The engine has huge reserves of torque and horsepower. Peak power is an impressive 127PS (125bhp) at 9250rpm while peak torque of 105Nm (77ft.lbf) arrives at just 7500rpm. Enhancing the engine is a smooth six-speed gearbox and clutch fitted with an anti-backlash gear. The Sprint ST comes with Triumph’s Keihin ECU offering sophisticated mapping for quicker starting, cleaner running and fuel economic engine.
The supportive, spacious seat and relaxed rider and pillion ergonomics make for great comfort on long distance trips.
The Sprint ST screen gives great wind protection for those long journeys without obscuring your view around town.
Colour matched, factory designed, waterproof hard panniers are fitted as standard and are lockable with the bike’s ignition key. To further increase carrying capacity you can add a matching top box from Triumph’s wide range of accessories.
Triumph’s Antilock Braking System has been carefully designed to boost control under hard braking, working on both wheels independently. This unobtrusive system retains all the sensations of riding, operating at 100 calculations per second to sense the precise moment the wheel is about to lock up, then preventing it from doing so. The system has been specifically tailored to the Sprint ST, with painstaking calibration over many months to ensure optimum braking performance.
