Triumph Street Tracker spied
Triumph’s new Bonneville-based Street Tracker, which is due to go on sale in 2016, has been spied testing on the roads of Spain. These new spy shots also confirm for the first time that there will be more than one version of the Street Tracker.
These pictures show a standard model, and one with higher specification brakes and suspension. Assuming Triumph employ their normal naming conventions, this will be the Street Tracker R.
It’s the first time in nearly two years that MCN’s spy photographers have caught sight of the bike. They last captured images of it in the engineering mule stage, but since then virtually nothing has been seen or heard of the bike.
The Street Trackers will use an all-new engine that takes the current Bonneville motor and gives it a massive hike from 865cc to around 1100cc, which is expected to take power close to 90bhp.
MCN sources suggest the whole Bonneville range will benefit from changes, with heavy revisions also due for the 865cc motor.
Triumph’s Street Tracker R is expected to come in fairly close on price to BMW’s R nineT, which costs £11,750. This will make it a strong option for those who want the classic style of the Bonneville but demand more oomph. The standard bike shouled be about £1000 less than that.
