Triumph Sprint GT Video

Rainy day, so I'm digging up more Sprint GT goodies...

Motorcyclist Review of the Sprint GT

Interesting writeup of the Sprint GT in the September issue of Motorcyclist magazine:

With the disappearance of Ducati's STs and the increasing popularity of bigger, bulkier sport-tourers like the BMW K1300GT, Kawasaki Concours14 and Yamaha FJR1300, the Sprint GT is essentially in a class of one. It's slimmer, sleeker and sportier than any of the above, yet still capable of knocking out an Iron Butt if the mood strikes. And there's no denying that it's an incredible value. At just $13,199 including ABS, hard bags, a centerstand and other usually optional equipment that would add thousands to already-more-expensive bikes, Triumph's Sprint GT is Bond's bike at a bricklayer's price.

Triumph Sprint GT Unveiling Event

We will be participating in Triumph's world-wide unveiling of the new Sprint GT on Friday, October 8th and having demo rides the next day Saturday, October 9th.

This new model has some incredible touring features that can be most appreciated through first-hand riding experience. Therefore Triumph is linking the unveiling of this bike worldwide to demo rides the next day. Customers will be able to make their first impression of this new motorcycle from the open road.

Five years after Triumph introduced the popular 1,050 cubic-centimeter Sprint ST sports touring bike, the British marque has introduced a new model with greater practicality and more emphasis on the 'touring' aspect of 'sports touring': the Triumph Sprint GT.

As you would expect from a British machine wearing the famous Grand Tourer tag, the Sprint GT delivers outstanding real world performance in a practical and stylish package. But this should not be construed that the Sprint GT has lost the sporting edge that made the Sprint ST one of the most popular and enduring bikes in the Triumph range.

Of course, practicality is the GT's hallmark. The bike also features new 31 liter panniers, standard ABS brakes, a 200-mile fuel range, an optional top box that is capable of accommodating two full-sized helmets, and a 12 volt power supply that allows 'on the go' charging of electrical items such as laptops and mobile phones.

The result is a motorcycle with a different feel to the Sprint ST, biased more towards the 'touring' side of sports touring than the Sprint ST's 'sports' - a composed machine with precise and intuitive handling to keep up with sports bikes on demanding roads, but equally delivering the comfort required for a long two-up ride cross-country.
The 2011 Sprint GT is a culmination of ongoing customer feedback about what they want in a touring machine, including: 

  • 130bhp / 80ft. lb. version of Triumph’s iconic 1050cc triple 
  • A new exhaust system that lowers the center of gravity 
  • Anti-lock braking system as standard 
  • 31 liter hard bags and an optional top box capable of accommodating two full sized helmets and offering a 12 volt power supply. 
  • Under seat storage and built in rack with a well appointed grab rail 
  • 5.28 US Gallon fuel tank allowing 200 miles between fill-ups 
  • At $13,199 (USD) MSRP, the Sprint GT offers real-world performance at a price other sport tourers can’t come close to.

Priced at $13,199, the Sprint GT will be available in US dealerships this fall as early release 2011 models.

New Dainese Gear: Part 2

We have just received more of our annual Dainese order, and there are some gorgeous new pieces of kit on our shelves.
Seen above is the Bonneville D-Dry jacket. It is a waterproof textile jacket with a removable thermal liner, and a unique look that would be right at home on any modern bike with a heavy vintage influence. Whether you ride a Triumph "Modern Classic", a Guzzi V7, or even an Italian scooter, this is a unique jacket that will protect you from the road and the weather, while still maintaining impeccable style.

The Air-2 jacket is Very similar in styling to the Bonneville, but as the name suggests, has large panels of ballistic mesh. This is hands down, the nicest looking mesh riding jacket we have seen.
The Full Metal Pro glove is the update to Dainese's Full Metal glove. This glove features top of the line materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, and Kevlar and integrates input by Dainese factory riders like Valentino Rossi. It is quite simply the finest road-race glove in the world.
Of course not everybody needs a world class racing glove every time they hop on their bike. For more mundane riding, we now have the M19 glove from Dainese. This understated glove offers the quality of manufacture and protection you expect from Dainese, in a format perfect for commuting to the office.

We also have renewed our stock of strap-on back protectors, and due to popular demand, have stock a supply of Wave 1 protectors for slipping in the back-protector pocket of many Dainese jackets.

Come on in and see for yourself, just how nice these pieces are.

Royal Enfield Returns to Branchville Motors

If the 60's and 70's styling of Triumph's modern classics are not retro enough to satisfy your Brit-bike nostalgia, our new Royal Enfields should fit the bill.
While the body and frame harken back to Enfield's glory days in the 50's, the engine is an entirely new design, incorporating fuel injection and other modern updates, while retaining the looks of a classic British single.
The C5 Bullet Classic (seen above) is certainly not the beast for highway adventures at extra-legal speeds. If that's the kind of riding you are interested in, this is not the bike for you. But for leisurely putts through backroad twisties, you just might be surprised how much fun you can squeeze out of the 27.5hp,  499cc engine.

For a more in depth  review of the 2010 Enfields, with the new unit design engine, check out this post from AutoBlog:
The Enfield feels very mechanical, and planting one one in your garage is likely to lead to more of a relationship with the motorcycle than actual ownership. In the two weeks we spent with the G5, we seemingly learned what the bike likes and we were more than happy to oblige by altering our riding style appropriately.

Paradoxically, slowing things down a couple of notches actually made the bike seem faster and more robust. The old saying that it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow may never be more apt than with the 2010-and-newer Enfield. When ridden at 7/10s, everything falls into line – the deft handling could be described as flickable, the acceleration is relaxed, but completely acceptable, and the braking performance is admirable. Listening to the beat of the single lung directly below becomes soothing and the vibration you feel through the footpegs becomes little more than a reminder that you are riding a motorcycle. A real motorcycle. It has a reason for being. And you actually have a desire to ride the Enfield within its limits, not because it can't push its boundaries, but rather because it is simply better not to.

Vespa 300 Reviewed in Cycle World

Cycle World has a "first-ride" review of the new Vespa Super 300 up. The reviewer seems pretty impressed, and echoes what we have experienced in test rides, and heard from happy owners: The 300 goes!

A 3mm larger bore accompanied by a 3mm longer stroke bumps displacement from 244cc to 278cc. While claimed peak torque is only slightly higher (16.5 foot-pounds versus 14.9), it comes at 5000 rpm as opposed to 6500 for the 250.

Moto Guzzi V7 Classic Video Review

Those of you who have been paying attention, have probably noticed that the V& Classic has been receiving a lot of positive reviews in the motorcycle press.

Owner's Review of the V7 Classic

This is a nice two part review from an owner of a Moto Guzzi  V7 Classic.

Danilo Gurovich sings the V7's praises throughout the review, but I thought this paragraph really summed up the bike nicely:

After 800 miles, I can tell you that the V7 has no shortcomings for me.  It holds its own on the freeways with ease.  It handles the hideous street conditions in Chicago like a Hummer.  It gets awesome mileage.  It’s completely and totally comfortable, easy to ride for a beginner and for more advanced riders it rewards with a lightness, agility and very healthy torque curve. It makes you look cool without being threatening or looking like you’re compensating for something.  It says “I have everything I need”, not “I can have anything I want”.
