There has been a rise in the number of motorcycle owners and riders during the pandemic. It is an absolutely great way to get around without having to expose yourself so much to other people like you would if you were to get into public transport. 

However, as motorcycles have become a necessity to some people, many people still don’t buy just any motorcycle and you should too. You should carefully select high-quality motorcycles to purchase. Did you make a recent purchase on a motorcycle or are you still in the market for one? You can never go wrong with buying from a classic brand like Triumph.

There is still a lot that is worth getting. Here’s a list of the motorcycles currently available and our insights about them. 

The Modern Classics

Triumph Street Twin

But apart from the timeless style, it is also a bike that’s meant for the streets. It features a 900cc twin engine. Although it isn’t the fastest one, it is pretty decent enough. Apart from that, you can make your twin as unique as you want with over 140 accessories available.
