TRIUMPH TECHNICAL SUPERIORITY GIVES YOU THE BEST IN PERFORMANCE AND DEPENDABILITY

THE value of the contribution that Triumph has made to the motorcycling world during the past fifty years is almost impossible to assess. Right from the start Triumph set a pace in design and development which has been unrivalled. When ignition systems, for instance, were very uncertain in the earliest days, Triumph were the first to standardise the magneto - an instrument whose supremacy today is threatened by the Triumph pioneered A.C. electrical system. When engine design was fluid, Triumph settled on a simple reliable single cylinder unit which became the standard for the Industry until it, in its turn, was ousted by the Triumph developed vertical twin, so extensively used at the present time.

Now, Triumph offers, in addition to a range of brilliant twins, a new conception of lightweight design and performance in the "Terrier" and "Tiger Cub" models, which yet again emphasise the technical superiority of the Triumph product.

Always, Triumph have built motorcycles which are a joy to own and a thrill to ride, and never has it been truer to say this than today.

The Triumph-pioneered vertical twin cylinder o.h.v. engine, famed for its power output, economy and complete reliability.
