Triumph celebrates one million Hinckley motorcycles!


Unveiled at Triumph Global HQ in Hinckley by CEO Nick Bloor, the UK team celebrate building one million Triumph motorcycles with a one-off custom-painted Tiger 900 Rally Pro!

Just in time for their 120th-anniversary plans for 2022 – the first Triumph going on sale in April 1902 – this special Tiger 900 is finished with a silver paint scheme and ‘one millionth’ graphics, and is due to be on display at the Triumph stand at this year’s Motorcycle Live stand at the NEC. 

Following this, the ‘One Millionth’ model will find a home on show at the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience in a new 120-year anniversary display.

Speaking on the achievement, Nick Bloor commented: 

“Everyone at Triumph is incredibly proud to have played a part in achieving such a momentous moment in the modern history of this iconic brand. Over the 31 years since we re-launched Triumph with a new line of British designed motorcycles in Cologne in 1990, we have shared so many great moments with our fans across the world. 

“From returning to the TT champions arena, to entering the MotoGP paddock with our Moto2 Engine partnership to supporting the biggest global riding event and its great cause for health and wellbeing with the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, to mention only a few.  

“Triumph’s success has always stemmed from the passion and commitment we share with our riders.

“Whilst the last year has been challenging for all of us, this passion and commitment has driven Triumph to even greater heights, including the successful entry into new categories with the Trident 660 and Tiger Sport 660.

“Over the last three decades Triumph has maintained sustained and significant investment in our people, our partners and our in-house design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities, in order to grow the reach and reputation of this iconic British brand. This investment in homegrown talent, both in the UK and around the world, matched by the passion we share with our riders for delivering the complete and perfect motorcycle, has seen the brand go from strength to strength, achieving the most successful year in the brand’s entire 120-year history.

“Furthermore, we are committed to taking the brand to even greater heights, and 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’’

Kicking off 2022, and to celebrate 120 years of Triumph, there will be a series of meet-ups, special events and stories hosted at the Triumph Factory, with the British marque inviting fans from all over the world to join in the celebrations. 

It’s been a truly packed 2021 for Triumph, so we eagerly anticipate what Triumph have up their sleeve for 2022, perhaps some new models harking back to their original models? Perhaps a resurrection of old machines in one-off TFC guise?

Yes, I’m hoping to see a limited-run Daytona. Stick the 660 triple engine in, and everyone’s a winner!
