This is our most expansive exhibition to date, with 14 unmistakable Triumph Daytona machines on display, each with a revolutionary story to tell, presented in chronological order spanning over a 50 year generation.
There’s never been a better time to visit our unique Triumph Factory Visitor Experience.
GENESIS OF THE SCRAMBLER
July 2019 – February 2020 From McQueen to the Mexican 1000, our story is one that begins at the dawn of the Californian desert racing when, back in the early 1960’s Triumph launched its very own dedicated Scramblers: The original Bonneville TR6SC and T120C.
These were the original desert sleds that encouraged a scrambler scene that was exploding all over the world.
This exhibition sees the original Triumph Scrambler that Bud Ekins introduced Steve McQueen to, the 2006 revitalised Triumph Scrambler, our very own Hinckley Design Team Triumph Factory Custom (TFC), to the most capable off-road model ever produced; the category defining Scrambler 1200 – used by Ernie Vigil in the five day NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally, which came an impressive 5th overall.
THE LEGEND RETURNS
March 2019 – June 2019 An exclusive Special Exhibition created to showcase our 2019 Speed Twin with a selection of original Speed Twin heritage models that together represent a legendary name that set benchmark motorcycle design standards for over four decades. Long held to be the first true “riders’ bike”, it was the Speed Twin’s commercial success that opened up motorcycling as a fun pastime available to riders all over the world.
For this Special Exhibition we showcased a historic hand-picked assortment of motorcycles, including an original 1938 ‘Amaranth Red’ Speed Twin, an original Speed Twin police motorbike from 1953, and of course the latest addition to this illustrious family: our all-new and updated 2019 Speed Twin.
TRIUMPH RACING CHAMPIONS
September 2018 – February 2019 To celebrate Triumph’s unparalleled racing heritage, we presented Triumph Racing Champions; a never-before-seen collection of racing rarities that have been brought together specifically for our Special Exhibitions.
As well as several illustrious bikes of yesteryear, perhaps the highlight of this new installation is the newest legend in the making; Triumph’s Moto2TM engine development prototype. You will have seen Ernie Lyons’ 1946 Tiger 100 (the first twin to win at the Isle of Man), six immaculately restored original Triumph Grand Prix race motorcycles and, fresh from its debut Silverstone appearance at the British MotoGP weekend in August 2018, Triumph’s Moto2™ engine development prototype in its distinctive Union Jack inspired livery.
LEGENDS OF BONNEVILLE
May 2018 - August 2018 Instantly recognisable, the Bonneville has made its mark in history as a genuine motorcycle icon, enjoying decades of success with legendary racing wins, blockbuster movie appearances, a growing custom scene, and generations of passionate fans.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the most famous name in motorcycling, Triumph presented the ‘Legends Of Bonneville’ which is the first in a planned series of special exhibitions based at Triumph’s exciting Factory Visitor Experience.
This installation showcased iconic bikes including an incredibly rare prototype Bonneville Thruxton 500 winner, the T120TT ridden by Jason Statham in ‘Mechanic: Resurrection’, and David Beckham’s custom T100 used during his Brazilian ‘Into The Unknown’ documentary.
