Triumph Sprint ST is best tourer according to Motorrad magaz

Post by jason on Wed Apr 30, 2008 8:46 pm

Triumph's sport-touring Sprint ST has been voted the best motorcycle in the touring class by readers of the influential German publication Motorrad.

More than 35,000 readers from across Germany took part in the survey, scoring the latest bikes in all areas of machine performance and giving their thoughts on customer satisfaction levels.

Triumph performed very well in all categories, especially in the touring class, where the Sprint ST eclipsed the locally-built BMW models to take the best in class.

All eight of the Triumph models included in the survey made the top seven of their category. The Rocket III Classic and Street Triple models both came second in their class, within a few points of taking top honours, while the Daytona 675 SE was the only middleweight machine to feature in the top 10 of the sports category. The award-winning 675cc three-cylinder machine was voted the sixth best sports bike, missing out only by a quintet of one litre superbikes.

Tue Mantoni, Triumph's Commercial Director, attended the gala dinner in Ludwigsburg to collect the award. He commented: "Overall this was a very successful evening for Triumph and we're delighted to have taken top spot in the touring category. It is an extremely competitive segment, where quality, reliability and usability are the key. The fact that this award was voted for by the people who actually buy our products gives it an even greater significance and is a tribute to our skilled product development teams at Hinckley in the UK."

This is not the first honour bestowed upon the Sprint ST by Motorrad. Last year the model beat off 11 other bikes to win the publication's gruelling 50,000 kilometre test, a firm endorsement of the bike's reliability and high standard of build quality.

The Sprint ST is one of Triumph's most popular models, offering the handling and performance of a sport bike with the comfort and versatility of a tourer. It has been updated for 2008 with a number of small but important changes aimed at improving the bike's touring ability, such as uprated headlights, modified footrests and a steel fuel tank, to which a tank bag can now be affixed. Further information is available at www.triumphmotorcycles.com or by visiting your nearest Triumph dealer.
