Triumph motorcycles can trace its history back to the early 1900s and is the largest UK-owned motorcycle manufacturer. It has endured periods of financial trouble, but today the Hinckley-based company is enjoying success again.

Few motorcycle manufacturers can match the heritage of Triumph. The British bike builder has more than 100 years of history behind it and a legion of devoted customers. Triumph produced its first motorcycle back in 1905 and just five years later makes its first major innovation – motorcycling’s first practical clutch. Triumph has a storied relationship with the military, providing motorcycles to the allies in both World Wars, including more than 50,000 in WWII despite the factory being demolished in the Blitz of Coventry in 1940. After the war Triumph’s reputation only grew, thanks in part to Marlon Brando riding a Thunderbird in the film “The Wild One” in 1954 and the release of the iconic Bonneville in 1959.

Part of Triumph’s success is due in part to its expansive product line, covering nearly every category of motorcycling. These models include the  Tiger range of adventure bikes, the Speed Triple and Street Triple naked bikes, Rocket III power cruiser, and a heritage line of modern classics that include the Thruxton, Speed Twin, Street Twin, Scrambler 1200, and of course, the Bonneville.

The Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro represents Triumph’s most adventure-focused model. Powered by a 888cc three-cylinder, it’s unique in the category that’s mostly powered by twin-cylinders.

Combining modern technology with classic styling, the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE packs a wallop of technology in a thoroughly capable scrambler package.

Triumph’s Daytona 675 sportbike is no longer a part of the company’s lineup, but the engine has morphed into the 765cc Triple and is used in the updated Street Triple family. As an aside, the 765cc Triple is the engine used in the Moto2 championship.

The biggest, baddest cruiser on the market, the Triumph Rocket 3 is the epitome of excess. Powered by a 2500cc (yes, you read that right) three-cylinder, its engine displaces more than many car engines on the road today.

2020 Triumph Thruxton RS Review

“The Thruxton is to sport riding what the Scrambler 1200 is to adventure riding,” says Ryan Adams. Cool, retro styling combined with a punchy 1200cc Twin, the Thruxton exudes style and has the performance to back it up.
