Triumph Motorcycles. Triumph is a British motorcycle manufacturer, originally based in Coventry. In 1884, S. Bettmann & Co. Import Export Agency of London started selling bicycles. In 1888, Triumph acquired a factory in Coventry to manufacture its own bicycles. By 1902 the first Triumph motorcycle is manufactured. Then by 1905 the first all-Triumph is produced. It is also the first all British motorcycle. By 1925 Triumph employs over 3,000 people and is manufacturing up to 30,000 motorcycle units a year.  After the war, civilian manufacturing resumes at Meriden. In 1948 Triumph will release its first trail bike. By 1967 28,700 Triumphs are sold in the USA.  A new company in Hinckley took over the name rights after the collapse of the company in the 1980s. In 1984 the Meriden factory is torn down and in 1990, six new Triumph motorcycle models are shown in the Cologne Motor Cycle Show. In 1994 Triumph motorcycle has re-entered the competition ring. Having monitored the Japanese market closely for the past years Triumph adjusted it’s modular building of motorcycles and developed the first purpose built model – the Daytona TT600. Triumph proved it could compete against the design of Japanese bikes. The launch of the new 2003 model was even more stylish. Also sports touring models were developed like the Sprint ST & RS.
