First Ride Incoming: Triumph Street Cup

Published: 13 January 2017

We’ll be riding Triumph’s new Street Cup at the world launch in Seville this weekend.

Essentially a Street Twin, Triumph has fitted a variety of mods to create an all-new café racer for 2017. Taking inspiration from the Thruxton range, the new bike borrows some styling traits - getting the same twin clocks with polished stainless steel bezels, as well as similarly styled foot pegs and forged headlight mounts, painted bowl and bezel.

The bike comes equipped with a bullet seat made with an alcantara effect top panel and the pillion seat can be hidden by a painted cowl – complete with number board graphics to give it a sportier look.

It also gets fork protectors, black bullet indicators, bar-end mirrors and a fly-screen.

Aside from the retro bobbins, the Street Cup will use the 900cc Bonneville motor producing 54bhp and will cost £8600.
