T110 vs Street Twin

Excuse my myopia, but I'm having a hard time discerning how the 2019 T110 differs from the Street Twin. Triumph spec sheets are not too useful. All I can see is that the T110 has spoke wheels vs alloy on the ST. Oh, and pea-shooter mufflers vs up-swept. I guess the new ST has a Brembo front caliper, does the '19 T110 as well? Do the engines have a differant tune? Maybe its just a styling exercise. I do love the spokes and pea-shooters, which I guess is why I have a T120.

I think the biggest difference now would be that the Street Twin has the updated engine and the T100 does not. T100 also has twin clocks, as well as the other things you mentioned.

... and different riding position. I've ridden a Street Twin few times, only sat on a T100. In Street Twin you'll lean forward a bit more... and mayby (not really sure about this) your feet are in a bit tighter angle/ or the position of the pegs is a tad different compared to the seat....or the seat is different enough to cause this effect.

I think the main difference is that the seat hight in the ST is much lower than that of the t100 which is good for short riders.
The ST fuel tank is also smaller.
It's slightly lighter as well.
Overall the ST is slightly more compact (though I believe the wheels are the same size).
It's a great first bike.

What the heck is a T110? There's the T100 and the T120.

I'm happier than a tornado in a trailer park.

I think we all know what a T110 is

Friend of mine always refers to his 865cc T100 as 'my Tiger 100', confused everyone at first.
In his defence he did buy a new T100 Coventry built Triumph whilst they were still in production so I simply put it down to old habit and rose tinted glasses, and not rampant senility like the rest of the crowd do.

Whenever I see a bike advertised with 'a shed load of extras' I often wonder how well it handled with a deckchair, lawnmower, some hose and a rake strapped to it.

It's a T100 that's been modified so that it goes to 11.

LOL A T100 modified to go up to 11. That inspiration must have come from the Mystical Stonehenge.
I ride a Street Twin, use to have an 07 T100. I really like the Street Twin, I don't miss the tach.

My last post is an obscure reference to the old movie "Spinal Tap," the amplifiers were modified to go from 10 to 11.
They goof on Stonehenge in the movie.
When I re-read my last post I realized that I do not appear to making any sense.
