1991 Triumph 1200cc Trophy
When Triumph Engineering went bankrupt in 1983, John Bloor bought the name and production rights from the official receiver. The company’s previous factory was outdated and could not compete with the technology of Japanese manufacturers, so Bilour decided not to immediately relaunch the brand. Initially, production of the old Triumph Bonneville continued under licence from Les Harris of Racing Spares in Newton Abbott, Devon, to bridge the gap between the end of the new company’s launch and the old one. For five years, starting in 1983, at the peak of production, about 14 cars were produced per week. They were never imported into the United States for liability insurance purposes.
The 2014 Triumph Scrambler Triumph 900cc Adventurer is a modified version of the famous Triumph Thunderbird 900 trio.
Bloor formed a new company, Triumph, and hired a number of former designers from the team to create new models. The team opted for Japanese production methods, in particular a new generation of automated equipment, after visiting Japan as part of a tour of competitors’ factories. In 1985, Triumph acquired the first tools to secretly work on its new prototypes. In 1987, the company completed its first engine.
In 1988, Bloor provided funding for a new facility to be built on a 40,000 m2 plot of land in Hinckley, Leicestershire. For the 1991 model year, the first Hinckley Triumph was launched. Between £70 million and £100 million were invested in the company from the time the brand was bought until 2000, when it broke even.
In May 2002
Triumph began construction of a new assembly plant in Chonburi, Thailand, for the production of various components. Prince Andrew, Duke of York, opened a second factory in 2006, where an assembly line and a liquid paint factory were installed. In 2007, Triumph announced intentions to boost production capacity to more than 130,000 motorcycles. Three high-pressure casting and machining facilities were also opened.Currently, Triumph Motorcycles (Thailand) Limited, a company with 100 percent UK roots, employs roughly 1,000 people.
Digby Jones, former Baron Jones of Birmingham, was elected president in June 2009, the same month that the 1,600cc twin-cylinder cruise ship Thunderbird was unveiled.
The motorcycle alliance between KTM and Husqvarna was announced in 2017 by Triumph and Bajaj, an Indian motorcycle and tricycle manufacturer based in Pune. To meet the demands of high-volume emerging markets, Bajaj and Triumph will produce motorcycles in smaller quantities. All products are manufactured under the Triumph brand. In addition, thanks to this agreement, Bajaj now has access to the company’s lucrative activities in the Indian market.

Triumph and Bajaj, an Indian motorcycle and tricycle manufacturer based in Pune, announced a motorcycle alliance between KTM and Husqvarna in 2017. Bajaj and Triumph will produce fewer motorcycles to meet the demand for high-volume emerging markets. The Triumph brand is used for the manufacture of all products. This transaction will also give Bajaj access to the company’s lucrative activities in the Indian market.
Triumph of Design
The original Triumph, one of the most famous motorcycle manufacturers of the 20th century, went bankrupt in the early 1980s. The new Triumph revived the 1990s as a completely modern British brand, aiming to shape its character rather than producing cruisers or sports motorcycles as imitations. The top models of the current twin and three-cylinder engine range are Roadster, Adventure, Cruiser, Modern Classic and Café Racer. The humble street and speed triple bikes, the all-terrain Tiger 900 and the monstrous Rocket 3 2500cc cruiser with an estimated 163kg of torque are part of the three-cylinder family. Triumph supplies the Thruxton, Bonneville, Scrambler, Speed and Street Twins as twins.
The series is the perfect ode to Triumph’s glorious past. This closes the gap between the last car in 2020 and the first triumph in 1902, a gap of more than a century.
The Custom Triumph “TT Deluxe” is the engine of today.
This TP bike has been professionally modified in café racer style by Jeremy Kapp of LC Fabrications in Grote, Virginia. The engine has been praised since its introduction and featured in many publications under the name “TT Deluxe”.
The bespoke star frame is inspired by a TP design from the 1910s, with historically accurate angled walls and removable motor wiring. The custom-built black fuel tank is adorned with white Jacob’s buttons, bronze TP logos and integrated leather blade guards. For safety reasons, street lights are installed on the bike, including a windshield wiper, tail light, and LED turn signals.
The 4.00-inch Firestone tires are mounted on 19-inch spoked wheels, which also feature druid forks and shocks. Braking power is provided by a small conical drum brake at the front and a brake mounted on the left damper shaft at the rear.
The rear clutch and brake levers, tracker buttons, and friction steering damper are features of the specially designed steering wheel. Keihin CR twin carburetors with high-speed packages and a loaded, high-mounted, two-in-one exhaust system are used to power the 865cc parallel twin-T engine for dynamic and exciting handling.
