After selling a Yamaha VMax for parts this was quite a change. Pros: This one starts, corners extremely well, and has a wide rpm. range with more than enough tourque. Though it likely would not beat my old VMax in the quarter mile, it will still go from zero to stupid very quickly. The riding position is more sport than I'm used to, but the seat is very long, allowing you to sit up or move back and lay forward. Highway range is great for me with over 60 mpg. Comfort otherwise is great and braking is excellent. The engine sound is not what I'm used to in a lower rpm. bike, but I'll be anxious to see what comes for optional exhaust. Overall, if you can't decide if you want to cruise or race, it is a great bike. The only thing I'd change would be to move the front turn signals down as they make it look like a moped.

Early in 2011 I had bought a Triumph Sprint ST to replace my trusty old 2002 Yamaha FZ-1 as my sporty traveling/two up bike. I loved the motor and the ergos on the ST, it was just that the exhaust (stock) was loud for long rides and the heat from the underseat exhaust was annoying even on cooler days. I bought the GT mostly because I knew the conventional exhaust would address these issues and also liked the larger bags and underseat storage. I saw the weight only increased 15 pounds so I was hoping the handling wouldn't be too far off. Was I surprised at the handling of the GT! The suspension is so much improved that it ranks up there with the best of any bike I've sampled, and I have really good WP suspension on my KTM Superduke. The bike feels more sporty overall and turns much better and precise than the ST it replaces. They steepened the steering geometry and lightened the wheels, so this may explain why. The longer wheelebase has the bike more planted in the turns, no adverse affect at all. I followed my riding buddies who ride very fast on Honda RC51's, VFRs etc and had no problem keeping pace, even with my bags installed! I'd go so far as to say this GT with bags handles better than my old ST without. Unfortunatly I did not see any improvement in fuel economy as I was getting 35 mpg. (US) but then again it was a cooler day and I was riding pretty agressively with bags installed. Maybe after break-in this will improve (only 200 miles on the bike). My Superduke probably weights 120 pounds less and I only get 30 mpg. on that so I guess I can't complain. The underseat storage is a real nice plus, as the ST seat was bolted on with zero storage there. I got the silver with blackened out everything else and think it looks sharp. I highly recommend it!

Well, after exactly five months in the saddle, I can say without a doubt this is one of the best motorcycles I've ever owned. Power delivery is there, always on tap, and is liquid smooth. There are no flat-spots anywhere in the torque curve; the GT just pulls and pulls and pulls. The too far to the levers problem was fixed with a set of Triumph Genuine Accessory levers...though at $180, they were an expensive fix. Handling is superb, the thing feels like it's on rails. This is also the first bike I've ever ridden with hard luggage where you don't feel the weight of the bags while cornering. There are still some gripes, however. The transmission is somewhat notchy when downshifting, and finding neutral at a stop can be difficult. Also, get the touch-up paint kit for $20, because you're going to need it at some point. Rocks or other road debris tend to scratch the finish pretty decently. For highway droning of more than an hour or so, the bike tends to wear on you. A set of Gen-Mar risers and the Triumph gel-seat would probably rectify this issue, however. Lastly, after shutting the bike off, about 30 seconds later it makes a noise like it's getting a fax...or it's trying to dial out to the internet. Apparently it's normal, but if you've never heard it before, it can make you scratch your head. Overall, I am pleased with this motorcycle and glad I purchased it. The looks, features, power and character of this machine are second to none. Add in the price, and you've got yourself a winner.

I got the chance to do a 50-mile demo ride. The Triumph Sprint GT is a true Grand Tourer in British/European style with emphasis on sport. Think of it as Triumph's version of an Aston Martin coupe. There is luxury; meaning quality and refined running gear but no gadgets and gizmos. The Sprint GT is evolved from the Sprint ST. The GT is unique. The infamous Triumph 1050cc triple is retuned for more power (128 bhp. & 80 ft. lbs. torque @6,300 rpm. The bike is heavy at 590 lbs. wet. With a 5.3 gallon tank, the real world range is about 180 miles. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think it looks great with the main debate being the new exhaust. Ergos appear all day comfortable but again you are on a sport-oriented bike. Your're not on a Goldwing or an Electra Glide. I was very comfortable on my short ride. The bike has silky smooth power delivery and retains chain drive instead of going with a shaft drive. Acceleration is a strong point. Despite the weight it is very nimble and flickable in corners. ABS brakes are standard and they are powerful. I enjoyed my short ride a lot and will consider the GT when it's time to replace my trusty old Daytona 1200. If you're looking for something unique & high quality yet still sporting, capable of short or long haul touring, the Sprint GT may be for you. It's in a league of it's own and different enough from BMW, Kawi Concours, Yamaha FJR, Honda ST or the VFR, etc. Others may offer more of this or that but the Triumph Sprint GT seems good at filling many roles and is a very competitive machine. I'll take mine in Pacific Blue.
