Compared to the 2016 model power is up around 10bhp but both peak power and torque appear higher up the range, the red line is 500rpm higher, the front caliper is now from Brembo, the fork has been upgraded, two ride modes have been added, there's a new seat design with 10mm more padding, new cool machined wheels, the down pipes have a funky gold hue and TPMS is now an option.
Triumph boosted the power with new lightweight engine internals and added a new lighter clutch but like the original it can still be restricted for the A2 licence. The 18" front wheel takes a 100/90 tyre and the rear 17" a 150/70.
Accessories include heated grips, TPMS, quilted brown seat, waxed cotton pannier, fly screen, bullet style LED indicators, Fox piggyback shocks, Vance and Hines silencers and metal belly pan. Not to mention Triumph's huge accessories catalogue!
- Urban Ride Kit: Brown seat, fender removal, black oil filler cap/intake covers/belly pan and LED indicators
