BLUE GRACE. In 1957 it was the twin carb T110 that set a new 650cc production machine speed record of over 238kph. As a development of the Thunderbird tourer, the T110 prototype performed brilliantly in the 1953 ISDT providing the production version ñ launched later that year ñ with invaluable publicity. Off the shelf, the Tiger 110 was advanced and performance focused. The first Triumph with swinging-arm rear suspension, the T110 came with a revised engine incorporating a stronger crankshaft, high-compression pistons, larger inlet valves and ëhotterí cams. The T110 offers classic lines and celebrates the very best of British with its lovely parallel-twin generous geometry.

This is a superior example with good provenance.
