While the country continues to face challenging economic and currency conditions, including Brexit, Triumph Group has performed strongly and has maintained its commitment and investment in research and development.

The Group has continued to develop its motorcycle range, launching 5 new motorcycles in the last 12 months, including the new Street Triple, the new Bobber Black, the new Speedmaster and the new Tiger 800 and Tiger 1200 adventure motorcycles.

It has continued its commitment to customer need with the opening of a new £4m Factory Visitor Experience at its Hinckley base.

The Factory Visitor Experience includes a museum charting the history of Triumph, which is free to enter, as well as an opportunity for fans and enthusiasts to take a tour of Triumph’s high-tech manufacturing plant to see where Triumph’s class leading motorcycles are built.

First established in 1902, Triumph Motorcycles has been based in Hinckley, Leicestershire, for more than two decades.

Building around 67,000 bikes per year, Triumph is the largest British motorcycle manufacturer and has over 700 dealers across the world.

The firm currently employs around 2,000 personnel worldwide and has subsidiary operations in the UK, North America, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, Sweden (Scandinavia), Benelux, Brazil, India and Thailand as well as a network of independent distributors.

Triumph Motorcycles will be the official engine supplier for the Moto2 Championship from the 2019 season onwards, after agreeing a deal in 2017 with race organiser, DORNA.
