Triumph Sprint GT 1050 Review

Triumph Sprint GT 1050 Overview

The Triumph Sprint GT (Grand Touring) is a pillion friendly bike with a longer swingarm and steel subframe. This makes is far more stable than previous models. It also has lower seat height as well as a more comfortable pillion seat.

Triumph claims that you get 200 miles between fuel stops with this bike.  We tend to agree although the engine is a little grunty at times. This bike is great for weekend trips with lots of baggage. It’s also comfortable which makes a real difference.

The suspension on this bike is softly damped and steering is agile enough. The new fuel injection on this bike as well as new ignition settings make the bike manageable when fully loaded. You’ll feel confident and stable on this machine.

The ABS works well on this machine and the cockpit is functional as well as modern. You won’t find any fancy power mode settings or traction control, which might disappoint some.

The Triumph name harks reliability with this bike. You won’t be disappointed with this machine or the re-sale value, either.

It is a sporty riding position tourer tourer - gel seat helps, and sit on the bike so you don't take the weight on your wrists. Still has very readable dials for speedo & tacho - I hate digital stuff
Ride Quality
I find steering & ride fine, though other folk moan about the extended swing arm
Build Quality & Reliability
The usual screw threads seizing up - the mirror glass screws and front mudguard fixings
Engine Rating
It's a triple - love it
Brake Rating
Very rarely get the rear ABS activating, never been able to get the front wheel ABS to kick in (yet). Occasionally in heavy rain, the ABS light comes on, but spray the sensors with brake cleaner and solves the problem.
Running Cost
I have no complaints
Pros CommentsCan't fault it at the price paid -£9000 Considered the Tiger 1050 and this would have been £1800 dearer with same kit spec
Cons CommentsI have no complaints

Really good riding position , just find my right wrist can ache after a couple of hours, going to try some risers , I think it's some old age creeping in.
Ride Quality
Smooth and stable , can be a little top heavy at slow speeds and cornering a definite movement required to make it drop in , quite a long bike so very stable in a straight line a little slow into corners.

Mine is still like new, paint is great, no rattling from any fairings.
Engine Rating
Just awesome very flexible at low speed then really kicks in at 6k , loverly crackle on the exhaust on the over run , I have a carbon Trident exhaust, very nice.
Brake Rating
Quite powerful, not used the ABS yet , rear is good and strong.

Great on fuel 230 – 250 miles out of a tank. Insurance was good.
Pros CommentsEngine and looks, great all day bike enough power to have fun and when loaded with panniers and box great to go touring.
