Used Triumph Motorcycles For Sale

Triumph motorcycles have been manufactured for just over 100 years now, and the company has been a major presence since the beginning. Like many UK companies, Triumph saw hard times in the 1970s. Government policy and competition from Japan seemed destined to assign Triumph to the history books. But, they came roaring back ten years later to reclaim their proper place in the pantheon of bike makers.

Here are three contemporary reasons why.

Daytona 675

Named after the famed motorcycle rally in Florida, it would show well there. . . or anywhere else. With bright yellow fairing and modern styling, this bike looks great. If it were black, the bike could easily be mistaken for Batman's Batcycle.

But the Daytona 675 is more than just a pretty face. With a liquid-cooled 675cc, in-line three cylinder engine it delivers quick, smooth power throughout its rpm (revolutions per minute) range. Rated at 123 bhp @12,500 rpm and 53 ft-lb (foot-pound) of torque, it will more than satisfy anyone looking for a mid-sized bike.

For all its power, Triumph hasn't neglected to give it a comfortable ride, either. With preload adjustable monoshocks front and rear, both driver and passenger will feel good on the bumps around town.

America

Triumph's America model is powerful, solid, reliable. The 790cc, air-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder power plant provides ample power with a throaty rumble.

The 28-inch seat is ergonomically right and stylish to boot. Highway-style foot controls add to the ease of driving this mid-sized cruiser.

The look is quieter than the Daytona, with its classic gray and black color scheme and even more classic Triumph styling. Understated. The strong, silent type. This bike is reminiscent of motorcycles made 30 years ago. But like any classic design it never goes out of style.

Rocket III

For those looking for the largest of the large, Triumph offers the Rocket III. With its huge 2,294cc in-line three cylinder engine this ‘car on two wheels’ puts out 147 ft-lb of torque at only 2,500 rpm and 140 bhp at a low 6,000 rpm. That's power delivered under real world conditions.

Well balanced for such a large machine, the Rocket III sports chromed twin rear shocks with adjustable preload. It needs them with a wheelbase of not quite 67 inches (170cm), but a weight of 704 lbs (320kg). This bike is clearly only for those ready to take on a heavy bike. But driving down the road, it delivers an incredibly smooth, comfortable trip and corners well for such a big bike.

Classics

For those nostalgic for the days of Triumph's triumphs, the company offers a range of ‘retro’ bikes. There's the 790cc Bonneville and the 865cc Scrambler or Thruxton. All have the classic look of a Triumph from decades ago.

But despite the look of yesteryear, these bikes have all the ultra-modern electronics and materials and engineering that make today's bikes the envy of their grandfathers.
