Triumph Motorcycles

Triumph Motorcycles have six factories. Two of these factories are based in Hinckley in the UK, three are in Chonburi, Thailand and one is n Manaus, Brazil. So, SOME Triumph motorbikes are made or at least assembled in the UK. A friend of mine has one and he is very happy with it. It is not clear how (or even if) you can tell where a particular Triumph bike was assembled and where the parts were made. The original Triumph factory closed down in 1983. As far as I know Triumph motorcycles is unconnected to the German bra making company Triumph International.

    Of the 50,000 bikes they build a year, 30,000 are built in Thailand. The ones that are built in the UK at the moment are the Rocket 3 and the Thunderbird. Almost everything else is made in Thailand.

      Thanks for the figures. A very useful addition to this article. I am pleased that both Triumph and Norton are still building motorbikes in the UK, but it is a shame that Triumph don’t make all their bikes in the UK.
