2016 Triumph Street Twin: Overview

Inspired by the new wave custom scene, the Street Twin takes the Bonneville bloodline firmly into the 21st century, without losing any of its iconic character.

This is Triumph’s most contemporary new Bonneville; built to slot straight into today’s rider’s lifestyle. It’s built for fun, built to ride with a smile, and built for owners to customise.

Its combination of iconic Bonneville character, stunning looks, thrilling engine, low seat height, dynamic handling and ease of personalisation makes the Street Twin THE most accessible and desirable modern classic available today – the Bonneville for every rider.

New 900cc ‘high torque’ engine
The unique character of the Street twin comes to life through the all-new 900cc ‘high torque’ 8 valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine.

As the name suggests, it delivers a massive peak torque figure of 80Nm at a low 3200 rpm, which is an amazing 18% more than the previous model, delivered where you want it - low down and across the whole rev range.

Benefitting from the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection and engine management system, the Bonneville Street Twin is engineered with a charismatic 270° firing interval for an immaculately smooth, linear power delivery through the smooth six-speed gearbox.

The look of the new 900cc engine has also been beautifully crafted, with stylish black engine cases and a very high level of detailing. Incorporating contemporary engine components alongside signature features from the iconic Bonneville engine to enhance that authentic Bonneville silhouette.

The all-new upswept brushed stainless steel exhaust system of the Street Twin has been developed and tuned carefully to look great and deliver the unmistakable sound of a genuine British twin, with a rich, fruity note to match its lively character, tuned to a level you can feel as well as hear.

Significantly advanced fuel economy
Behind the new 900 engine’s stylish exterior sits a cutting-edge liquid cooling system, carefully integrated to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving cleaner emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency – an amazing 36% better than the previous generation Bonneville.

Dynamic Handling
The Street Twin’s fun, engaging and easy-going riding experience comes courtesy of an all-new chassis and suspension - designed to bring Triumph’s signature ride dynamic of neutrality and agility, and deliver refined and intuitive handling.

Combining a user-friendly low seat, more substantial seat foam, greater suspension travel, a more natural riding position, slim waist profile and fantastic 'stand-over' ergonomics, the Street Twin is our most accessible Bonneville ever.

Modern capability
The Street Twin sets a new standard of modern capability, with a wealth of rider -focused technology to deliver advanced control, safety and enhanced rider confidence, integrated sensitively and without compromise, to maintain its authentic Bonneville style and character.

Traction control Taking advantage of the ride-by-wire system, the switchable traction control system optimises the delivery of the Street Twin’s amazing torque.
