Yes, it's either that or super unleaded. All modern Triumphs are okay to run on E10:

You don't indicate the year of bike but almost certainly..... the 2015 on 'Gen 2' can run up to E25.  :028:

Weve been forced to use E10 here in the States for years now.  Most modern bikes and cars have no issues with it.   My Triumphs and BMWs dont seem to mind it nor does our Volvo car or my Toyota pickup truck.  However living so close to Canada I try to mostly fill up my bikes with Canadian ethanol free high test gasoline available at our General Storeand I would only use that for winter storage with a good fuel stabilizer like Marine Stabil.    Ethanol belongs in our drinksnot our gasoline!!!!  :232:

Bought half a tank the other day did not really notice any difference, may well buy super every now & then, & will definitely  use it over winter when the bike is used less

Bought a full tank of E10 yesterday for a trip to Bala, thought the bike a 2012 model with 57,000 miles on the clock did not run quite as well seems to have lost its edge & vibrated slightly more, will fill up with super next time to make a comparison.
