Sports-tourers beware: Triumph’s new Sprint GT is set to be one of the best value big tourers out there
TRIUMPH’S brief was simple: take an existing sports-touring Sprint ST and make it more practical, pillion friendly, comfortable and capable of carrying more luggage over long distances. The new Sprint GT (Grand Tourer) is the result.
With more power and torque than the popular and competent ST, the new GT benefits from changes that should transform it into Triumph’s flagship mile-muncher, including and panniers as standard.
Unveiled in the picturesque Scottish Highlands at Loch Fyne, Inveraray, the launch was a 350-mile journey lap of the Scottish Highlands with a lap of the Isle of Skye thrown in: plenty of time to find out if the GT really is a proper grand tourer.
