Triumph Confirms a Triple for its Adventure Bike

Triumph has confirmed it’s using an 80% brand new triple for it’s upcoming Adventure bike.  In a press release, one of many the company is trickling out over the new few months prior to the bike’s official launch, Triumph said;

Adventure bikes have to carry out a whole range of roles with minimum fuss.  That’s why Triumph has been busy ensuring its latest pair of young cubs will set a new standard when they’re introduced later this year.  We think a triple is the best configuration for an adventure bike.  It’s compact and has a natural character that ideally suits a wide range of duties.  Our long stroke engine will deliver smooth, controllable torque for both tricky off-road riding and the urban jungle…but with the higher rpm characteristics that just devour on-road miles.  A triple is also more refined than a twin, which means that the bike is less tiring and less intrusive on the open road. So you can just relax and enjoy the trip.

Triumph have also released a brief video about its engine decsions with some fleeting glances of the bike in action.

Roll on September1st for the next update from Triumph, this time covering aspects of the bike’s chassis.
