- Bud Ekins and Steve McQueen insisted on including a TR6 in "The Great Escape."
- It does take a bit of skill and knowledge to set the manually adjusted, magneto ignition. With an experienced rider the TR6 will burst into life first kick, every time.
- The one area which would really frighten us today is the suspension. The TR6's front fork was dire, offering a nominal 6 inches of travel.
- Triumph TR6 manual advance and retard mechanism for the magneto ignition.
- Triumph TR6 minimalist instrumentation.
- The Triumph TR6 engine is simple. Four valves operated by basic push-rods. The separate gearbox is utterly unbreakable as well.
- The TR6 produces a claimed 45 horsepower for the 71mm x 82mm single carb Twin.
- Triumph TR6.
- The Triumph TR6 is a wonderful machine.
- In real world terms, it’s faster than a Bonnie and handles just as well. A TR6 is also easier to keep in tune.
- For my money – and that’s a powerful word for a journalist to use – the TR6 is an all-round better bike than a Bonneville.
- Quick release competition rear wheel was standard on the bike.
