Get to know the 115 year old history of the British maker and take a tour of the factory that makes legendary motorcycles.

Triumph has been the oldest British motorcycle manufacturer that has a rich 115 years of heritage. Expressing this to the world, the Hinckley firm has built a brand new Factory Visitor Center for £4million ($5.3 million) spanning across eight distinctly-themed areas that combine to create a full Triumph experience.

Showcasing the brand’s achievements in design, engineering, racing and popular culture, the visitor center will allow fans to get behind the scene through both historic and modern era of motorcycles and legends riding them.

Located at the firm’s manufacturing mecca in Hinckley, Leicestershire in the UK, the visitor center will be home for the first model to be produced by Triumph, the No1 from 1902 and many rare and unique models including a 1919 Triumph ‘Trusty’ Model H used during the First World War, the 1959 Bonneville that shook the world and all of the brand’s legends with the Hurricane X75, T595 Trident and original ‘94 Speed Triple.

You will also be made accustomed to the bikes used in some of the greatest Hollywood flicks. One of them is the Bonneville used by the legendary Steve McQueen in The Great Escape restored to working order. Then you’ll see the Speed Triple ridden by Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2 as well.

Build by riders, for the riders, the visitor center allows fans sharing the same attitude and passion for riding come together and experience the incredible bloodline of bikes used both for road and racing. One can find the display of unique race bikes Triumph has ever created from an original 1920s TT racer to the Gary Johnson’s 2014 Isle of Man Supersports TT winning Triumph Daytona 675.

The floor also shares space with the brand’s newfound craze of participating in the Moto2 with the latest race engine prototype for the 2019 Moto2tm championship. Of course, there will also be the original 1956 Bonneville salt flats record-smashing streamliner to let gasps out.
