The Trumph Sprint GT is a more practical, refined take on the 1050cc ST first released five years ago. The GT was first spied in March. Power is up 5bhp to 130bhp at 9,200rpm; torque is up by the same amount to 80lb/ft at 6,300rpm; there's standard 31-liter panniers and an optional top box with a 12v power supply; ABS is standard; the 43mm forks get revised internals and the shock a remote preload adjuster; but most importantly, the headlights have been restyled to look less like a Fisher-Price toy and the underseat exhaust has been dropped in favor of a single right-side item so there's now underseat storage room. That sounds like an overall improvement to a great, but somewhat flawed bike. Let's hope the headlights are brighter and the revised forks improve front end feel, that's really all the old bike was lacking. Video below.
