The 2019 Triumph Street Twin has got an 18 per cent increase in horsepower and the engine gets a few updates, along with two riding modes.

Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled the 2019 Triumph Street Twin at the Intermot show in Cologne. The updated Street Twin’s design largely remains the same with a few minor tweaks, but the engine has been revised and now makes 18 per cent more power, rated at 64 bhp, and a 500 rpm higher redline. Peak torque remains the same 80 Nm, but it now kicks in at 3800 rpm, instead of 3200 rpm on the outgoing model. All these improvements have apparently been brought in after adding a new lightweight crankshaft, dead shafts, balance shafts and lighter clutch.

Ride ergonomics have also been improved by adding a new 120 mm travel front fork, and brakes have been upgraded by introducing a four-piston Brembo caliper on the front disc. The 2019 Street Twin also gets two riding modes – Road and Rain. ABS and traction control are also standard. Other features include a USB charging socket, LED rear light, immobiliser and Torque Assist clutch with a lighter lever feel. The cast wheels are new, instrument console is also new, and a plush new seat are added as part of the updates for 2019.
