Triumph’s one millionth bike (of the Hinckley/John Bloor era) rolled off the production line
The machine, a special Tiger 900 Rally Pro with a one-off silver paintjob and graphics, was unveiled at Triumph’s Hinckley headquarters by CEO Nick Bloor last month and will be shown at Motorcycle Live before taking up permanent residence at the Factory Visitor Experience. “From returning to the TT champions arena, to entering the MotoGP paddock with our Moto2 engine partnership to supporting the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride; Triumph’s success has always stemmed from the passion and commitment we share with our riders.”
Nick Bloor’s father, John, relaunched the brand with the Daytona and Trophy models built in Leicestershire in 1990. The firm now has five manufacturing facilities across the world supplying 700 dealers in 57 countries.
Bloor added: “With the forthcoming launch of our brand-new Tiger 1200, new competition MX and Enduro motorcycles, plus our strategic partnership with Bajaj to create smaller-capacity bikes, I am delighted to say that the future for Triumph and its fans across the world will be just as exciting and rich as the last 30 years has been.”
