Triumph expands its Bonneville Street Twin family a bit to include the all-new-for-2017 Street Cup. The SC brings the cafe’-tastic vibe of the Thruxton to a smaller engine bracket with a 900 cc mill, thus opening up the club-racing world to entry-level riders and offering experienced riders the option of downsizing for convenience without giving up too much in the way of fun.

Triumph might even be taking a little wind out of its own sails (sales?) by offering another CR, but price and displacement are different enough to appeal to different buyers.
