2022 Triumph Street Twin Modern Classics Review Specs Price

One of Triumph’s best-selling contemporary classics is the 2022 Triumph Street Twin Modern Classics. The bike, which debuted in 2016, combines a timeless design with a motor that appeals to many riders. The engine was upgraded in 2019, and this year’s upgrades increase comfort and quality even more. These enhancements take the bike to the next level in its quest for mainstream popularity.

For the time being (although this might change in 2023), the suffix “Street” on the end of a Triumph model name indicates that the vehicle has a smaller engine than the more powerful “Speed” variants. A Triumph 900cc parallel-twin engine serves as the heart of the Street Twin. This engine has a lively personality due to its 270-degree firing sequence and excellent low- to medium torque. Consider this with the bike’s timeless good looks and high-quality construction, and you have a well-thought-out, if not cheap Street Twin.

2022 Triumph Street Twin Modern Classics – Features and Specs

Pricing and Variants

Prices for the 2022 Street Twin vary from $9,695 to $9,995 (in Jet Black, Cobalt Blue, or Matte Ironstone). To the delight of Anglophiles everywhere, the Twin is also available in a limited-edition EC1 model for $10,445 (US). The name derives from the custom motorcycle scene in London’s EC1 postcode, which is home to the city’s historic core.

Powertrain: Engine, Transmission, and Performance

A 900cc parallel twin that complies with Euro 5 standards is as fun as it is easy to handle. The throttle has a ride-by-wire system for instantaneous reaction, while the gearbox has five speeds and a wet, multiplane clutch with torque assist for seamless shifting. The 270-degree crankshaft gives the engine a ton of personality, and most of its thrust comes on at low to medium revs. According to the dyno results, the engine produces more than 50 pound-feet of torque between 2,750 and 6,000 revolutions per minute. The engine generates 60.1% horsepower at 6,880 rpm and 55.6% lb-ft of torque at 3,700 rpm. It is more than enough for getting the bike through corners and relatively manageable from one traffic signal to the next.

However, this engine isn’t faultless; a few issues have been raised about it. After roughly 40 minutes on the road, the rider’s right shin will start to feel the heat from the engine. Second, at around 5,500 revolutions per minute, the pegs feel vibrations. Thankfully, the vibration isn’t felt in the handlebar.


Lots of twisty roads, please. With equal ease, the Street Twin can negotiate switchbacks and sweepers. The bike’s predictable handling and solid double-cradle steel-tube frame allow the rider to select a line and maintain it.

The KYB suspension aids the bike’s excellent behavior on unpaved roads at both ends. In the corners, the bike remains stable thanks to the twin shocks and 41mm fork. However, the compression setting of the surprises is a little stiff, and the rebound is a little rapid, so there is a little bucking on very harsh bumps. A respectable 4.7 inches of travel can be found at both ends.

When it comes to brake calipers, there is no brand loyalty. The Twin’s front Brembo caliper bites down hard on the 310mm disc, while the rear Nissin caliper does the same on the 305mm disc. The combination of a Nissin engine and a 255mm rear disc brake will get the job done, but you’ll need to apply more pressure than you may think to the brake pedal to obtain the same results as you would with a larger front disc.

Energy Consumption and Actual MPG

Typically, 50.7 mpg is what you can expect from the Street Twin.

Ergonomics: Comfort and Utility

The Triumph has a well-padded, one-piece seat that is easy on the glutes and provides enough freedom to move about and adjust as required for long rides. This area is excellent for two-up cycling since there is so much space to cover.

While our 6-foot-tall rider felt a little claustrophobic, most riders would like the comfortable knee bend provided by the handlebar and foot pegs. The seat is comfortable, 30.1 inches from the floor.

The Street Twin is a throwback in looks but not in technology since it has switchable traction control, ABS, two riding modes (Road and Rain), an undersea USB charging plug, and an immobilizer-equipped key.

All the necessary data may be on the analog speedometer’s built-in LCD panel. It would be good to have the finest illumination at both ends, especially for the price of this bike, but the halogen headlight and LED taillight are enough.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

A guarantee covers triumph bikes for two years and unlimited miles.


The successes of today are awash in excellence. The engines are more dependable, and the interior is lavishly appointed with touches of brushed metal. If only we could get some of the circuitry upgraded.
