This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Sprint ST motorcycles with the 1050cc engine, made between 2005 and 2010. It was replaced by the Triumph Sprint GT in 2011.
The maintenance for the Triumph Sprint ST with the 1050cc engine was quite similar to other motorcycles (sports and naked) with the 1050cc engine, like the Speed Triple of the time.
Of course, what makes the Triumph Sprint ST different is that it has a full fairing and luggage, and wind protection to help you travel for days.

General information about the Triumph Sprint ST
The ST arrived in 2005 and received its first update in 2007, which consisted of a new ECU for improved fuel economy, higher bars, a taller screen and colour-matched panniers as standard fitment. Used price is from £2,500-£5,000 with capacity of 1050c, bore x stroke of 79 x 71.4mm and liquid-cooled, 12v, DOHC engine. It has a power of 123bhp (91kW) @ 9250rpm, torque of 77lb-ft (104.4Nm) @ 5000rpm.
Oddly, in 2008 Triumph updated the Sprint again with a new headlight, modified footrests and the option of ABS for the first time alongside a steel tank replacing the composite unit on previous generations. Add to this a centre stand as standard, 20-litres of fuel capacity, loads of accessories and even a seat that has more than enough padding for both a rider and pillion.
