Again, like the T-Bird, the Triumph Legend TT is easy to dismiss as a soft, laid back custom. In truth, the Triumph Legend TT, like its bigger brother, may be a tad tall (blame the scaffold pole steel spine frame) and heavy, but it cuts a decent dash nevertheless. Comfy, too.
Like the T-bird, the Triumph Legend TT is one of the best incarnations of the original big Hinckley triple. 885cc three has been detuned from Trident and Trophy spec to give even more oomph. Wound open the Triumph Legend TT sounds like a squadron of Lancasters. The only downside is that, as part of the cost-cutting, it’s finished in black instead of the Thunderbird’s delectable chrome. Yuk.
Like most early Hinckley Triumph’s the T-Bird family benefited from engineering paranoia to the extent that the Triumph Legend TT is massively over-engineered, understressed and pretty durable, too.
Triumph Legend TTs are rarer but cheaper generally than the T-Bird so, if you can find one they tend to offer good value. Used Triumph Legend TTs for around £3000 represent, we reckon, much better value than an equivilent Harley… Find a Triumph Legend TT for sale

Bit disappointing, really. Where the T-bird glitters and glistens, the Triumph Legend TT (bit OTT name that, we think) offers merely plain and dull. Still, you can glitz the Triumph Legend TT up with some of the goodies available from the big fat Triumph accessories catalogue.
