Video: Triumph Thunderbird LT group test

MCN, 09 April 2014 09:37

With the arrival of Triumph’s new ‘LT’ bagger version of its Thunderbird cruiser, never before have there been so many, truly credible alternatives to the all-dominant Harley-Davidson Road King.

'We wanted to create the ultimate Speed Triple'

Phil West, 26 December 2011 15:00

Triumph’s imminent new ‘R’ version of its best-selling super naked is much more than a cosmetic update, MCN can now reveal – in fact it’s been conceived to be “the ultimate Speed Triple”!

Guy Procter, 08 November 2011 13:09

First Triumph Tiger 800 Supermoto

MCN, 03 October 2011 14:31

Straight bars, 17in wheels, upside down forks, fox-eye headlights and an 800cc inline triple - could this be a secret, pre-production Triumph Street Triple 800? We wish.
