10w 40. Semi synththetic if your bike has done less than 1k miles fully synthetic if it has done much more. Has to be certified api and Jaso ma.
Olive oil if you're Italian, Castor oil if you have a beard and are over 65, Amsoil if you wear stars and stripes clothing.
The manual will give you Triumph's current commercial partner.
If you use non motor cycle specific oil you're on your own save for the 47 people who will be along in a minute to tell you they use X, Y or Z and they are fine with it.
You have a Sprint ST so not sure why you are asking? Oil threads are so common perhaps a search might have kept you busy/interested for an hour or 12.
I've been out to the garage for you in temps of 3c so I hope it helps.

Since everybody wants to be serious and we are REALLY going to have another oil thread

Triumphs new spec is 10w-50 for the 675

Yes yes I know a bunch of owners manuals say 10w-40 but that is because Mobile didn't have a 10w-50 MC oil when they where the "official" Triumph oil partner.

They fill with Castrol 10w-40 semi-synthetic at the factory and recommend (but not require) that you go 10w-50 full synthetic after the first oil change.

I run ELF MOTO 4 XT Tech 10w-50 (available under Kawasaki private label branding in the US) in all my bikes and to fry my chips.

My dealer remove the factory semi-synthetic oil and replace it by standart mineral oil for the first 7000km breaking-in. After this go with semi.
