A brief history of Triumph motorcycles

Celebrating over  120 years of motorcycle production, it’s interesting to note Triumph, the great British manufacturer, was actually founded by Siegfried Bettman, a German who moved to the UK in 1884 and sold bicycles. A fellow German, Mauritz Schulte, an engineer, later joins Bettman and the now Triumph Cycle Company at its Coventry factory. 

In 1902, Triumph’s first motorcycle appears and is basically a reinforced bicycle with a sub-3bhp engine powering it. From this point on, new models are introduced regularly until the first completely built ‘in-house’ Triumph was produced in 1905. The next big event was Schulte designing the first clutch-assisted bike to allow standing start drive-away. 

During WWII, Triumph supplied over 28,000 bikes to the British military all based around the four-stroke single-cylinder Model H. From this, Triumph grew and introduced even more models including small capacity two-strokes. However, in 1937, Triumph released the 5T Speed Twin – a 500cc parallel twin that set the tone for all future Triumph twins. 

WWII left its mark on Triumph when the Coventry factory was blitzed. A new factory was built in Meriden, where ‘Meriden Triumphs’ were soon to be produced. 

By 1973, the writing was on the wall for the British bike industry – the Japanese were making inroads with powerful and reliable machinery. Triumph limped on, run by a workers co-operative until 1983, when the factory gates were closed for the last time. 

However, one man quietly bought the Triumph name and set about building a new factory in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Fresh designs were drawn, new technology was employed and suddenly, in 1990, a range of six new Triumphs were unveiled at the Cologne Show. John Bloor’s Triumph is an instant and continuing success…  


Triumph’s range of motorcycles 

Adventure 

There are four Tiger models in the line-up and all have impressive sales figures, showing just how far Triumph have come. The Tiger Sport 660 is more road biased with sports-like levels of handling and performance thanks to many shared components with the retro styled Trident. The Tiger 850 Sport & Tiger 900 are direct rivals to BMW’s F850GS, while the new 1200cc Tiger Rally is more than a match for the BMW R1250GS and maybe even the new R1300GS. 

Sport

Triumph has recently announced a return of its iconic Daytona sportsbike with the launch of the Daytona 660 utilising the same 660c triple engine found in the Trident and Tiger Sport. You can also get your adrenaline fix thanks to the sporty Speed Triple 1200 RR and RS. 

Classic 

Triumph Bonneville bikes were one of the coolest bikes ever built and today’s versions – all four of them – are equally appealing twin-cylinder bikes because of their retro style combined with modern engineering. The other two classic models are the sportier Thruxton and trail-inspired Scrambler, which is also now available as an A2 licence compliant Scrambler 400X. 

Roadsters 

Naked, agile, punchy, comfy, does everything, fun… every descriptive word used for the naked Triumph 675cc Street Triple and Speed Triple 1200 is justified – they really are that good. Looking for a retro cool bike? Triumph have you covered with the Triden 660 and new for 2023, A2 licence holders can experience the same Triumph thrill with the all new Speed 400. 

Custom 

Triumph has a broad range of custom cruisers. You can opt for the mild mannered and stylish Bonneville Speedmaster, or you can opt for the biggest capacity production cruiser of 2,500cc in the shape of the three-cylinder Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT.
