The New Speed Twin

"Overall, the Speed Twin is a hoot to ride. It’s a strong, sturdy feeling machine that is hard to unsettle, handles any radius of corner with stylish aplomb and has a bootful of torque to drive through the gears, revs and speed." - Michael Mann, Bike Social 

"Triumph have skilfully meshed all the best bits from the sharp-toothed Thruxton with their laid-back roadsters to create the new Speed Twin.  It's fast, fun, all-day comfy, easy to manage and, despite its modest suspension and braking hardware, has the ride quality, poise and stopping power of a Street or Speed Triple…The Speed Twin is a classy, affordable slab of retro that its rivals will struggle to keep in their sights." - MCN

Scrambler 1200 XE scrambling in the desert

The New Scrambler 1200

"The Scrambler 1200 XC will happily cruise, scratch and get mud in its turn-ups, but with its beefier, longer travel suspension, stretched wheelbase, wider bars and more sophisticated electronics, the Scrambler 1200 XE is blessed with an extra layer of off-road ability and is capable enough to rival all but the most serious of adventure bikes.  These major chassis mods tell you everything you need to know how serious Triumph are about the Scrambler’s off-road pretentions. It glides over bumps, digs into corners, wheelies off crests and generally flatters you, feeling less like a retro and more like an adventure bike with all its plastics ripped off - nimbler and less clumsy, but oh so capable." - MCN

"Within 10 yards my pre-off-road nerves have dissipated and I’m already thinking this could be a dark horse among challengers for bike of the year. That’s big talk for sure but just a glimpse through the impressive spec sheet and you’ll be immersed in understanding how much time, development and resource the Hinckley-based folk have poured into the two Scrambler 1200’s – known as XC and XE. They’ve not just thrown some modern classic spec into a mixing bowl with a hearty dollop of adventure, this could well be the 50’s scrambling renaissance…with the bonus of on-road silkiness." - Michael Mann, BikeSocial

The new Street Twin with female rider in urban setting

The New Street Twin

'Retro style mixed with modern tech and engineering substance is a sure-fire winner and we’ve seen Triumph conquer this concoction before. This time, the Street Twin has got to that next step up without any fuss. It’s priced sensibly, comes with a robust chassis and engine combo and provides an elegant and classy if not easy and unthreatening entry point. Impressively simple to get on with.' - Bike Social

‘A perkier engine, uprated spec and first-in-class technology makes the 2019 Street Twin a modern classic worth owning.’ - Visor Down

The new Triumph street Scrambler on country road

The New Street Scrambler

'Aesthetically it might look very, very similar to the outgoing model but beneath lies plenty of upgrades to make the £300 price difference worth every penny. Headliners like better brakes and more power aside, it’s the sensible touches like wider spread torque, improved front forks and neat styling that add to its grown-up-ness while still being very easy-to-ride. So it has the class, finesse and ride quality while managing to look butch and strong and having the versatility of being able to conquer the (milder) green lanes too, putting the scramble back into scrambler.’ - Bennetts Bike Social

'The Street Scrambler's off-road looks, stance and feel make this a genuinely charismatic and engaging bike, while its off-road mode lends an even wider appeal.  Suddenly, that dusty trail looks pretty enticing.' - MCN

THE SPEED TRIPLE

"It’s one hell of a hustler. Losing weight and introducing top-spec Öhlins to the mix has taken the Triumph’s handling to the next level. It will muller sportsbikes on twisty mountain roads." - Fast Bikes (Facebook)

"Nothing appears to upset the handling, it really is a joy to ride, fast or slow – engine and chassis are truly the best of both worlds. The Triumph’s wonderful spread of torque makes it an effortless ride. You don’t have to chase the revs; you’re always in control. It didn’t just deliver, it walked to the front of the class and got a gold star, and proved, once again, to be a brilliant road bike." - MCN

The New Tiger 800

The new Tiger is refined, fun to ride and boasts the quality and spec of a large adventure bike in an easy-to handle middleweight package - Laura Thomson, Visordown

New Tiger 1200

"Stand out quality,further enhanced by clever use of technology" John Urry, MCN

"Just back from the launch of the @OfficialTriumph Tiger 1200. Fabulous bike. Power delivery and handling significantly better than Explorer, and dash is a work of art." Geoff Hill, Daily Mirror


Bobber Black

This is a bike that not only looks fabulous, but also delivers in spades. It rides wonderfully, sounds and feels authentic and delivers a fantastic riding experience on every single level. It could actually convert those who have laughed at bobbers in the past into real fans of this style of machine – it really is that good.- MCN

The Bobber Black is a fantastic bike in so many ways. It’s more than a styling exercise… it’s an upgrade and the first of the Black editions to get upgraded parts. 
In the process it has created a motorcycle that has a completely different vibe to the original Bobber. It’s darker, moodier and the fact that it’s now slightly harder to push into a corner might even make is a bit ‘badder’. In a good way! - BikeSocial

Street Triple

"Well deserved of our 5-star rating, the new triple hits harder, spins-up faster and belts out its shrieking, bass-laden, acid-infused soundtrack higher up the decibel range, through its lighter new airbox and exhaust - It’s clear its new 765cc motor is an absolute gem of a thing and has comfortably taken this iconic engine to another, unrivalled level."- MCN

"It is one of the finest motorcycles I've ridden in years, that's quite a statement, I know, but this is one hell of a bike." - Bennetts Bike Social
