Triumph marks 120th anniversary with one millionth bike

TRIUMPH Motorcycles is marking its 120th anniversary with the unveiling of its one millionth bike, with the one-off custom painted version of the Tiger 900 Rally Pro unveiled at its global HQ in Hinckley by CEO Nick Bloor.

Launched in 2019, the Tiger 900 Rally Pro provides a perfect demonstration of Triumph’s world leading design, engineering and production capability, courtesy of its class-defining character, quality and attention to detail–attributes.

With its sophisticated custom silver paint scheme and ‘one millionth’ graphics, this very special milestone motorcycle will be displayed on Triumph’s stand at this year’s Motorcycle Live show in the UK, and be part of the company’s factory visitor experience.

The latter provides visitors a taste of Triumph’s manufacturing expertise, as well as showcasing the most important collection of bikes from the British icon’s past and present.

“Everyone at Triumph is incredibly proud to have played a part in achieving such a momentous moment in the modern history of this iconic brand,” Bloor said.

“From returning to the TT champions arena, to entering the MotoGP paddock with our Moto2 engine partnership, and supporting the biggest global riding event and its great cause for health and wellbeing with the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, Triumph’s success has always stemmed from the passion and commitment we share with our riders.”

While acknowledging the difficulties of the last 12 months and the impact of COVID, the boss of one of the world’s most popular bike brands said the passion and commitment of its global operations had helped them push forward.

“We are committed to taking the brand to even greater heights, and with the forthcoming launch of our brand-new Tiger 1200, new competition MX and Enduro motorcycles, plus our strategic partnership with Bajaj to create smaller capacity bikes, I am delighted to say that the future for Triumph and its fans across the world will be just as exciting and rich as the last 30 years has been.”

The very first production Triumph motorcycle went on sale to the public in April 1902, starting a brand story that has gone on to encompass countless legendary motorcycles, and playing a significant role in shaping the motorcycle world we enjoy today.

Triumph’s modern era began in 1990 with a completely original range of motorcycles designed and built in a brand new, state-of-the-art factory at Hinckley. Today Triumph operates across five manufacturing facilities.

The most recent addition to Hinckley’s impressive infrastructure is an all-new UK assembly plant, built to enhance Triumph’s global manufacturing flexibility and complement the existing multi-million-pound paint shop and rapid prototyping facilities

A truly global operation, Triumph has 13 sales and marketing offices around the world, and manufacturing and production facilities located in Thailand, India, and Brazil.

From January 2022, Triumph will invite fans from all over the world to join the factory in celebrating the pure spirit of motorcycling, in a series of stories, meet-ups and special events. Keep an eye out for more details on those in the new year.
