For riders who want sportbike-like performance, on a lightweight bike, yet still be protected from the elements, the 1995 MY Triumph Sprint 900 is a choice to take into serious consideration.

The powerplant on this half-fairing bike can produce almost 100 horsepower and 78 Nm of torque, which is more than enough for a fun, highway run. The chassis, the same as all the other 900cc Triumph models, is rigid yet manageable enough to ensure smooth handling no matter how tight the bend.

Visually, since its rebirth in 1991, the British firm have shown an extraordinary attention to details and quality of finish, almost at the same level as the Germans from BMW. The Sprint is no exception from this, with well-drawn and defined curves from front to back, combined with some black engine accents and rims.
