Triumph motorcycle history

Triumph motorcycle history takes us back all the way to the year 1887 when the company was formed in Coventry, first as a bicycle manufacturer, and later changing the focus to motorcycles in 1902. Since then, it has become what we now know as the largest UK based motorcycle manufacturer. It’s not exactly the same factory, the British brand changed directions with a new range of motorcycles and a new factory located in Hinckley. One of the most popular motorcycles of this brand are the ones in the Modern Classics series, which combine the British heritage with a sixties style and the latest technology, the Triumph motorcycle history is reflected in all these models.

With more than one hundred years of history, the British manufacturer has created a wide array of motorcycles in all styles.

For every road

The legendary Bonneville, named after the Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA, leads this series. The Scrambler arrived in 2006 as the most off-road oriented motorcycle of the series. The latest addition to the family is the Thruxton RS, the Thruxton was first presented in the sixties and relaunched in 2004.

The Street Twin is the most affordable and accessible of the series and became the best-selling model since its launch in 2016. The same year, the British brand launched their take on the classic Bobber style with remarkable success, and the Street Scrambler, as a more urban model than its namesake. And lastly, the Speed Twin, a model originally launched in 1937 which the British brand reintroduced to the market in 2019.

All these motorcycles gather the best of Triumph motorcycle history while still having their unique character. Even the models with the strongest design have a versatility that makes them a perfect motorcycle to customize into any classic style.
