The most affordable Triumph offering will receive a cosmetic and mechanical update.
Triumph has released a teaser video announcing that it will be showcasing the 2019 Street Twin at the INTERMOT motorcycle show in Germany next month. As expected from a teaser video, very few details of the bike have been shared and complete information will be shared at the unveil event. What we can confirm is that the upcoming motorcycle isn’t all-new and is, instead, a facelift of the Street Twin which made its global debut in 2016 as part of Triumph’s ‘Modern Classics’ line-up.
The teaser video mentions ‘more performance’ and we suspect that Triumph engineers might have tuned the engine for slightly more power and torque. The existing 900cc, parallel-twin motor develops 55hp at 5,900rpm and 76Nm of torque at 3,234rpm. While the silhouette of the motorcycle in the teaser video looks identical to current Street Twin, we suspect that the new motorcycle might get an LED headlamp, redesigned instrument console, better finish and some more features.
The 2019 Triumph Street Twin will make its global debut on October 2 and is likely to go on sale in India by mid-2019. The British brand will also unveil the new Scrambler 1200 at the INTERMOT motorcycle show alongside the new Street Twin.
