Triumph blaze: dwindling stocks

You won’t get a discount on a new Triumph for months – but if you’re selling a secondhand bike, you’ll get a great price.

That’s the message from Triumph dealers,

who are coming to terms with the fact they won’t have some of their most popular models in stock this summer.

Supplies of the Bonneville – Triumph’s best-selling bike in 2001 – have dried up already, and the Daytona superbike won’t be far behind. The

all-new Speed Four was also due out this summer, but none had been built before the blaze.

Steve Lilley, boss of Middlesex dealer Jack

Lilley, said: " We’ll be promoting secondhand bikes to ride out the storm. We’ll have to make up the losses somehow. "

Triumph says it now has just 1800 bikes left in the UK, many of which are from the Sprint range. The firm says it will be able to supply all spares as they are kept in separate warehouses, with other stocks in the U.S.
