Racing and Production Models from 1902 to the Present Day
Author: David Minton
Triumph, one of the world's most famous motorcycle makes, has seen periods of great technical progress and commercial and racing success followed by downturns in fortune. This has led to major changes in the management and design teams as well as the restructuring of the company. The complex company history is told here in full, from foundation through to its present-day resurrection and last year's launch of the new Bonneville.
