Triumph Unveils 7 New Models for 2011

If you're a fan of Triumph Motorcycles, you'll be pleased to know that Triumph just unveiled 7 new models, the largest new product lineup in the company's 109-year history, at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach. Triumph also introduced their new CEO of the North American division, who has worked with both Harley-Davidson and Buell Motorcycles, Greg Heichelbech.
“Triumph is one of a couple motorcycle manufacturers that can boast both an incredible heritage and state-of-the-art engineering and design," said Heichelbech." But Triumph is the only motorcycle manufacturer that has this unique, iconic brand and also has successfully created a product line that caters to a very wide variety of customers.”


With the 7 new models in 2011, Triumph expands its product lineup from 16 models across 3 motorcycle families, to 23 models across 7 motorcycle families.
“Triumph offers by far the best selection of class-leading products, from sport bikes to cruisers to adventure bikes, while still maintaining a brand heritage that’s more than 100 years old," Heichelbech continued. "We have a very bright future at Triumph, and I’m looking forward to working with the factory, our North American team and our dealer network to bring these fantastic motorcycles to customers everywhere.”
Triumph sold its 100,000th motorcycle since entering the American market 15 years ago. Here are the 7 new models under the Triumph roof.
Adventure
Tiger 800XC: With its long-travel suspension, powerful engine and 21-inch front spoke wheel, the 800XC delivers true off-road capability. A full range of off-road protection parts further helps riders who prefer to travel off the beaten path.


Tiger 800: Designed for the city and the open road, the Tiger 800 features a smooth, broad powerband and adjustable seat height that can be as low as 31.9 inches to make it an adventure bike for the masses.

Roadster

Speed Triple: Triumph pioneered the ‘streetfighter’ production sport bike movement with the Speed Triple, a 1050cc powerhouse that is still renowned for its styling and performance. The new Speed Triple receives many improvements that include an all-new chassis, more useable horsepower and a modern restyling of its signature twin headlights.
Supersport
Daytona 675R: This higher race specification version of the class-leading Daytona 675 features a full Ohlins suspension like that used on the  Triumph BE1 World Supersport factory racing bikes, Brembo mono bloc  brakes, factory quickshifter and carbon fiber bodywork to make the ultimate track day and road bike

Cruiser
Thunderbird Storm: Triumph started with the award-winning Thunderbird then increased its horsepower with the factory 1700 cc big bore kit, added distinct dual headlamps, aggressive drag-style handle bars, and blacked out the chrome for a hard-edged look.
America: This 865cc parallel twin-powered cruiser features a lower seat height and improved ergonomics for a more empowering and satisfying feeling for riders of every experience level.



Speedmaster: This stripped down ‘hot rod’ style cruiser features a more aggressive appearance, better ergonomics with forward controls, a lower seat height and wider handle bars for a ride that is muscular and empowering.
