The Triumph factory specifies minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON) Fuel up to E25 for those models with production silencers or with aftermarket (TORS) accessory silencers. Triumph motorcycles do not have an OEM anti-knock sensor (cf. BMW K1300), hence I would be very reticent to run lower grade fuels in what is after all a performance machine with a compression ratio of 9.7:1.
