Triumph’s Sprint GT offers a unique blend
of sporting ability with touring practicality.
With up to 117 litres of hard luggage capacity,
a 200+ mile fuel range, on-the-fly electrical charging
and anti-lock brakes as standard, this practicality
is the key to the Sprint GT’s success.
Powering the Sprint GT is a 130PS version of Triumph’s
venerable 1050cc three-cylinder engine, with 108Nm
of torque for effortless overtaking. The chassis,
developed from the Sprint ST, features a stylish aluminium
frame with single sided swingarm. The GT’s rear
shock absorber is easily adjusted for solo
and two-up riding using the hand adjuster located
just behind the rider’s leg. The four-piston
caliper brakes are developments of the Sprint ST’s
items, with ABS fitted as standard. Ready to ride,
the Sprint GT weighs in at just 265kg, including the
panniers and a full tank of fuel.
High quality colour coded panniers come as standard
on Sprint GT and are operated with the ignition key.
These each hold 31 litres of luggage and have been
designed to hold a large full-faced helmet. For riders
looking for even more capacity, a massive 55 litre
top box is available as an official accessory.
Not only can the top box hold two full-face helmets,
it also has a built in power socket for charging of
electrical items such as mobile phones and computers
while on the move. Further luggage space can be found
on the right hand side of the cockpit and under the
seat, where there is sufficient space to store Triumph’s
accessory U-lock. Further soft luggage options are
also available in the form of tail packs and tank
Rider and pillion comfort was at the forefront of
the Sprint GT design brief and the dual seat is 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 safe and assured ‘through the night’
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.
Two classy colour options are available for the
2012 Sprint GT: Phantom Black and Pacific Blue.
