With a proud history of top-class tourers and cutting-edge sportsbikes powered by Triumph’s iconic three-cylinder engines, no-one is better placed to build the perfect combination of both, in one bike. The Triumph Sprint GT SE adds to this long lineage with a gutsy 1050cc inline triple at the heart of a taut, capable chassis. With sleek, aerodynamic styling and all the comforts and practicalities of a long distance tourer, there’s only one Triumph Sprint GT SE. Because it’s all the bike you need.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE’s 1050cc three-cylinder engine is a naturally smooth, refined and balanced motor. Pumping out a potent 130PS peak power and peak torque of 108Nm at just 6300 rpm, spread over a linear power curve. This means instant throttle response and copious grunt on tap at any time, in any gear, at any revs, so the Triumph Sprint GT SE accelerates hard without having to first go down through the gears. It’s the perfect blend of sporty performance with real-world rideability to satisfy fast, all-day riding demands.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE features ABS fitted as standard. Completely unnoticeable in normal riding conditions, the ABS modulator works behind the scenes making over 100 calculations per second to make sure it’s there when you need it.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE’s three-dial dash features a classy combination of analogue and digital readouts, with a LCD clock, fuel consumption, journey time, remaining tank range and average speed, while a clear traditional, needle-on-dial speedo and tacho gives speed and revs.
Bespoke for the Sprint GT SE, the large, colour-coded, 31 litre panniers have slim, integrated, dynamic styling. Each big enough to hold a helmet, the system, including a colour-coded top box, gives a huge capacity of 117 litres. There’s also a built-in power socket to charge a phone or laptop while riding.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE features a lightweight, twin spar aluminium frame for sporting capability. At the rear, a single-sided swingarm adds extra rigidity, but also suits the Triumph Sprint GT SE’s touring role where eccentric chain adjusters make life easy. A centrestand is fitted as standard.
Suspension is critical in delivering a sporty ride in corners and a plush ride on straights. The Triumph Sprint GT SE uses 43mm Showa cartridge forks with adjustable preload, matched to a Showa monoshock rear with 152mm of travel and remote preload and rebound damping adjustability for a controlled, comfortable feedback at all times.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE’s highly fuel-efficient inline triple, when combined with the capacity of a generous 20 litre tank, gives a full-to-reserve range of well over 200 miles at motorway cruising speeds.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE’s 4-piston Nissin calipers on 320mm discs at the front and rear 2-piston sliding caliper and 255mm disc generate a surplus of stopping power, optimised for dynamic performance and feedback for all situations, from sporty solo riding to full-on, two-up touring.
The Triumph Sprint GT SE’s seat height is a user-friendly 815mm. But it feels lower, tapering towards the tank and making both feet flat on the floor even easier. Deeply padded and carefully contoured, the seat is ergonomically optimised to provide perfect rider and pillion comfort.
With a sleek, aerodynamic profile and instantly recognisable triple headlamp arrangement, the Triumph Sprint GT SE’s signature fairing side vents also duct hot air away from the engine. Front indicators are moulded into the mirrors, and the rear indicators are also faired-in to reduce visual clutter. A single-sided swingarm adds Triumph’s signature touch of class.
