Triumph unveil new Explorer XC

This is Triumph%X92s new XC version of its Explorer 1200 %X96 the surprise unveiling and one of the highlights of the weekend%X92s Triumph Live at Mallory Park. Built as a more, rugged, off-road orientated version of the Explorer (in a similar way to its smaller Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC double act) and undoubtedly aimed squarely at BMW%X92s R1200GS Adventure,...



Best bikes for under %XA35k: 2005-2011 Triumph Speed Triple

What was it like then?When Triumph released the Speed Triple in 1050cc form in 2005 it really did set the benchmark. It was so good it remained top of the naked bike class for a staggering six years until the model was revamped at the end of 2011. It won MCN group test after group test, dusting off top-quality European competition...

Best bikes for under %XA35k: 2008-2009 Triumph Bonneville

What was it like then?The return of Triumph%X92s most famous name was the one everyone was waiting for from the revived Hinckley marque. And when the all-new %X91Bonnie%X92 was unveiled at the 2000 Cologne Show, it certainly didn%X92t disappoint. This time round, however, the twin was designed as a gentle, charismatic, pleasing %X91retro roadster%X92 rather than being the performance bike the...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I%X92ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there%X92s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just to...

Staff Blog: Passports at the ready

There%X92s always a tingle that comes with the thought of riding abroad. And, now the working day is coming to a close, I%X92m feeling the tingle. The sun%X92s shining, the TT commentary is piping out of the computer and I%X92m headed for Belgium on the Street Triple R. It%X92s not designed for touring, but you can go anywhere on anything if...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

This year I%X92ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it%X92s not me, it%X92s the bike  - I don%X92t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn%X92t like the wet. The handling doesn%X92t inspire me to commute the long way on...



Used buying guide: Triumph Tiger

The Tiger is the unsung hero of the Hinckley triumph range. Where the iconic Speed Triple is the bike that captures the headlines, believe it or not the Tiger has been merrily going about its business in the background for twenty years, which makes it Triumph%X92s longest continuously running model. Where the Sprint and Daytona models have come and gone in...

Simon Warburton on the Triumph Tiger Sport 1050

Simon Warburton, Triumph%X92s Product Manager %X93Even though the Tiger 1050 is the oldest bike in our range now, there are still people buying it, albeit not anywhere near the numbers it sold before, so we thought there%X92s still space for it. It is a little bit of a gamble and we could%X92ve discontinued it, but we thought they%X92d still be...
