Flash forward more than a century and Triumph produces a wide range of motorcycles that source its signature Inline Triple and Parallel Twin engine configurations. The Triumph lineup includes sporty street options like the Daytona 675 and Speed/Street Triples, its Adventure-Touring Tiger/Explorer designs, as well as its popular modern classic lineup that features the Bonneville alongside the Thruxton and Scrambler. Triumph also produces cruisers, highlighted by its Twin-powered Thunderbird as well as the massive Rocket III – with the Rocket’s 2294cc Triple the largest displacement engine in production.
