Sprint GT no longer on Triumph's website :(

There's still some left over random photos and such, but the GT is no longer on Triumph's US website.

I'm glad I bought mine when I did, because it is the perfect bike for my needs.

Ditto that!

Although the GT is still on our Aussie Triumph website

Your not the only one that's glad he bought one. I look at it as a unique bike, not allot produced, there fore may have an interesting future.

But the GT is on the UK website and as being in the 2013 lineup, as is the Tiger 1050. However, my understanding is that both will be replaced by the Tiger Sports

Good thing I can't afford a new bike; Triumph has nothing for me!

Maybe Yamaha will do something fun with their triple, or maybe Givi will come out with luggage for that MV Agusta...

Cheers,

The Sprint GT is part of Triumph's lineup for 2013 here in South Africa:

I guess it must just be a decision based on poor market sales in the US that has caused the GT to be dropped from its 2013 lineup. Surely if it were selling there, Triumph certainly would not have sacrificed sales in such an important market?
