Designed to replace the stock mufflers on the 2016 Triumph Street Twin, these latest retro motorcycle accessories will revamp the bike’s looks, improve sound and shed unnecessary weight.
The new 2016 Triumph Street Twin was one of the motorcycle industry’s best surprises of the year, offering up great looks, a new engine and propensity for great fun. Aftermarket part manufacturers have raced to add their own flair to this instant-classic with new parts and accessories. Among the first wave of notable parts are the bolt-on Performance Tips from British Customs as part of their complete line of new parts for the Triumph Street Twin.
While the stock Street Twin mufflers have a strong sense of retro character with their mini reverse cone design off the showroom floor, they still look like every other set of Street Twin mufflers. Following the biker adage of ‘making it your own’, British Customs offer up their Performance Tips: a bolt-on, cat-back solution to the stock mufflers.
The Performance Tips are available in two styles: Drag and Slash Cut. The drag style pipes have a straight cut across the pipe exit, and look like a true set of retro drag pipes. The slash cut turn-out style tips are inspired by the pipes used by dirt track legends such as Sonny Nutter in the late 60s, with their 45-degree cuts that evoke heaps of character.
Since Performance Tips install behind the catalytic converter, they enhance the engine’s great stock exhaust tone without increasing the volume to window-shaking levels. Not only will these significantly reduce weight, the motorcycle accessory brings the added benefit of boosting horsepower due to their uninterrupted flow design, similar to straight pipes.
But best of all, these Performance Tips are bolt-on and can be installed within 30 minutes even if you forgot where you left your wrenches. This alone makes it a must-do for any owners of a Triumph Street Twin and become an essential part of any weekend project.
