Triumph's Return to Flat Track Roots Video
Friday, May 10, 2013
AMA Pro Flat Track
racing returns to action this weekend after what seems like an eternity since the first races in Daytona Beach. On that note, we just watched a cool video about Triumph Motorcycles
return to flat track racing last year. After winning the 2011 AMA Pro Singles title, rider Mikey Martin jumped up to the Expert class in 2012 racing a Triumph for Team Latus Motors Racing. With an engine based on a Triumph Speedmaster and a custom frame built by Bonneville Performance, the bike sounds wicked on full throttle. Flat track vet Joe Kopp helped develop the bike and mentored Martin as well. Cool stuff from Triumph Motorcycles. Now let’s race!
“In 2012, after a 38 year absence, Triumph returned to AMA Flat Track racing with Bonneville Performance and racer Mikey Martin. Listen to members of Team Latus Motors Racing and Bonneville Performance discuss the mystique of flat track racing and what it means to have Triumph back in the mix.” – courtesy of Triumph North America
