    Bit disappointed to be honest with the coverage given – not just to the triples – but to the era when they were produced….. Literally skimmed over in about 2 sentences! With a fleeting glimpse of a T160…. Bloody shame…Oh well…. it was a Henry Cole production…..

    I was a bit disappointed too! They even had the cheek to say the Honda was the first supper bike!!!! not to mention the world beating racing success of the 3’s .

    But you also have to bear in mind that the modern Triumph factory have had there say in all this. They are quite prepared to take anyone to court about the Name Triumph & the rights to use it. so i would imagine they asked the program to stop at 1969 as that’s were The modern retro market is at the moment ! and they don’t have any thing like a Trident T150 T160 for sale !

    I have just been to the modern Triumph factory and it’s the same in their little museum lot’s of twin stuff but only 3 triples and no info at all on them to speak off! it’s all aimed at trying to sell you a nice modern twin made in Tiwan ! But it was nice to hear that they only make triples in the UK !

      1050 and 1200 triples are still made in the uk, I understand street triples and Tiger 800s are all made in Thailand, they were initially built in the uk.  Production can be swapped between factories although the majority of bikes are made abroad. If you look at the parts on the factory tour they’re sourced from all over the world.

    On the tour we were told that all the triple’s were made in the UK and all the twins were made in Thailand, & that they did do CDK or is that CKD ? kits that are assembled else where. I know the parts come from all over the place. Didn’t Bsa bring in triple cranks? The thing is the vast majority of Triumphs are now made over seas from parts from over seas.

    I think it’s a pity that Triumph can’t build more bikes in the UK.  Also it would be nice if they had a better representation of triples at the factory & their achievements.

    Still at least we have a Triumph Factory ! 🙂
