2011 Triumph Sprint GT | Quick Look

2011 Triumph Motorcycle

It may have only one letter changed from the Sprint ST it replaces, but the 2011 Triumph Sprint GT is a very different machine.

Carrying over the frame and engine, there are notable similarities, but reworked suspension, a longer swingarm, slightly tucked in front end, new bodywork (with improved heat management), a new seat, and larger saddlebags, give the GT a personality all its own-and, it is a winning persona.

The GT is stable in corners and at double the speed limit on interstates, making it an ideal sport-touring mount.
