Segment: Sport Touring

When it comes to Triumph 900cc road motorcycles, one might think that he has a choice only between the naked Trident or the full-faired touring Daytona.

Well, not anymore, because the Brits introduced the 1997 MY Sprint 900, which, in accordance with the modular design concept of Hinckley, shares the same engine and chassis with the aforementioned two models, but is more lightweight than the Daytona and has a half-fairing, as opposed to the Trident.

The result is a machine that feels right at home on the track, on the road and even on transcontinental hauls, Triumph succeeding in reaching a compromise between a lighter bike and a comfortable one.
