TRIUMPH has announced a new update to its British production lines, with up to 20,000 bikes coming out of their new facility per year. 

Triumph has designed a new assembly facility in one of its Hinckley-based factories that will have the capacity to build between 15,000 and 20,000 bikes per year.

The new facility will be able to assemble bikes from across Triumph’s range, with production targeted at the British and European markets.

Head of Brand Management at the firm, Miles Perkins, said, “Everything we make is conceived, prototyped, designed, test ridden and prepared for production here at this facility,” when speaking to BikeSocial. 

Perkins also said, “This follows our plan to continue to build motorcycles here in the UK, and our efforts to increase our capacity to respond to shifts in customer demand and focus in the UK and European markets.”

This facility comes a couple of years after Britain's biggest bike maker reduced its UK output by 3000 from 7500 to 4500, and is therefore a boost to the firm’s aims of maintaining its production base in Britain.

BikeSocial also report that Triumph grew 29% in 2021 compared to 2020, and claimed “a new sales record of 81,541 via its global dealer network of 701 dealers.”

Included in the new range of bikes that could be included in the new assembly facility are the Street Triple RS’ that will bring the brand back to World Supersport competition in 2022, or the all-new Tiger 1200 family that features five different variations across the GT and Rally ranges.

Triumph has also recently announced a duo of partnerships, firstly with Breitling to produce a limited edition version of their Speed Twin, and then with Gibson to support the 2022 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Combined with those partnerships, this new assembly facility represents an exciting start to 2022 for Triumph.
