2019 Triumph Street Twin Reviews, and Specs

Triumph street twin 2019

The overall design on the Street Twin was classy and elegant to begin with, so there wasn't a need to change much. With an 18-inch front and 17-inch rear cast wheel setup, the Street Twin just goes like a standard should. For 2019, the Street Twin comes with class leading rider modes; 'rain' and 'road,' which alter the ride-by-wire throttle map and traction control intervention accordingly. This positions you right on the edge of torquey twin bliss. But should we be comparing them? Generally they work great but have occasional groans at low speeds and sometime seem like they need a few stops to warm up. Triumph as positioned the 2019 Street Twin as an affordable customizable motorcycle.

Accessing the information menu in the new speedo with its raised-brushed-metal-numbers on its flat-black face you can also shut off the traction control on both models, but only at a standstill. On the first day we rode the new bikes from Cascais, Portugal, down the road to Lisbon in the rain. In some ways this makes it feel like a beginners bike which will make it appeal less to older or larger riders. A reworked 'High Power' 1200cc parallel twin-cylinder Thruxton lump provides the Speed Twin's beating heart and darkly gruff soundtrack. You can pop off the Scrambler back seat and bolt the standard rear rack on in its place.

Plus, if you corner hard, the footpegs come into the way too soon. It had the same low seat height, comfortable upright riding position and lovely throaty exhaust note. It feels like a standard, British motorcycle should. A Bonneville made to look sportier? In India it goes up against the Ducati Scrambler Icon and the Harley-Davidson Street Rod. The engine worked a little overtime to haul our combined weight but did so pretty elegantly. So, here's our review of the 2019 Triumph Street Twin. Already a comfortable bike for all-day rides, the 2019 Street Twin has about a-third-of-an-inch taller seat foam.

2019 Street Twin and Scrambler 900 Ride Review

Triumph street twin 2019

I feel the Triumph line of Modern Classics is strangely aware of itself. In the late 1930s, the manufacturer introduced the original Speed Twin featuring what claims was the first successful parallel-twin engine. For some reason, though, I was partial to the Triumph and I was really hoping it rode as well as it looked. The next day was dry and took in a whole royal flush of road conditions from fresh black tarmac hairpins to greasy cobbles. But is the juice worth the squeeze? Could you get yourself in trouble on the updated 900? Triumph has many lighter components for the Street Twin for 2019. Ride-by-wire brings enhanced rideability, safety and control, from a single throttle body and is sensitively incorporated with minimal visual impact.

So if the 2019 Street Twin looks so similar to the old one, why the updated model? When I stop and take off my helmet, onlookers are shocked at my gray hair on such a cool bike. You can't get the Brembo four-pot calipers for 200 smackers. When I look at the Street Twin, I see a barhopper that will need to get some luggage before it can even serve as a grocery-getter or a workable bike. Triumph has also stepped things up in the Street Twins handling department. The racing looking stopper is still user friendly and progressive, though. Mode button and electrics fall easily to hand.

A simple, classically styled, British motorcycle with fuel injection, modern brakes, and decent suspension. The torque rating remains at 59 pound-feet. Subsequent layers of protective fandanglery are to be found in the engine-control area. Not many would think about a 900cc engine for an A2 licence holder. Any gear, any speed, if the engine is turning it is producing enough power to settle the chassis on corner exit or beat that Acura for lane choice.

Thanks to the revisions and upgrades made to the 2019 models they no longer feel like an entry-level Bonneville. If you're a fan of cafe racer motorcycles and style then you've come to the right place! There are more powerful bikes but this thing accelerates everywhere, all the time thanks to its large displacement twin cylinder engine. Peak torque is unchanged at 59lb-ft, but arrives higher in the rev range at 3800rpm compared to 3230rpm previously. The only complaint is that they squeaked, and not just on one test bike. I plotted a route that avoided highways and consisted of plenty of bends. The engine is the focal point and an absolute jewel.
