2016 Triumph Street Twin

900cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, ride-by-wire, single front disc, ABS, traction control and cast wheels. This parallel twin motorcycle is the smallest engine of the new Bonneville triumvirate. But it's a torquey beast and said to be ripe for the customisers. Expect to start tripping over them on the street.
