Does this mean that triumph is the oldest motorcycle company still in existence? Congratulations to them!

beauty

This bike is a thing of great beauty. I have seen so many Bonnevilles over the years. They never fail to catch my eye. I have to say of the older models, I prefer the Thruxton. However, I could easily imagine pootling around the city on one of these (if I had endless cash, of course)

At Daytona Triumph for Bikeweek they have #2 Steve McQueen. Triumph continues to make a true classic every version they bring out. A mate of mine here has just been given the authorization to built flat track versions for Triumph, very very fast. I'm so chuffed with my 790 and Scrambler, I know most eveyone who owns one of these is not disappointed.

bratale, Nah you wrong boy

The Triumph name & rights were bought out by John Bloor when the Meriden plant became too antiquated to modernise and the land too big & worth too much.

Following the closure of the Meriden site production continued in Devon while Mr Bloor was developing a range of modern machines and building a modern factory.

In late '88 production of complete old design bikes ceased in Devon as the newly designed bikes were under way at the new Hinckley plant.

The new models were on show in 1990 and very much updated by mid to late 90's. And now showing the way to most other manufacturers including some of the Japanese, while all the other European and also American manufacturers are going bust or being bought out.

Not just good, but great bikes and they're Made in England.

the real thing

I heard that it's just like the original bonnie. It vibrates like crazy, it leaks oil, and it can be beaten by a jap 350.

BMW Motorrad has built motorcycles every year starting in 1923, which likely (correct me if I am wrong) makes it the longest continuous production by the same company (and not new production by purchasing the trademark of a defunct company).
