January 4 2007.
Triumph Motorcycles (America) Ltd., has announced that its dealers retailed 10,726 units in the US during 2006. This is the first time Triumph's retail sales have exceed 10,000 units in a single calendar year since Triumph's return to the US in 1995. This is a significant milestone for the Hinckley, UK based Motorcycle manufacturer.
Triumph was absent from the US market for a little over a decade after the company fell on hard times in the early 80's. Entrepreneur John Bloor purchased the revered brand in 1983 and relaunched it to great acclaim in 1990.
"All of us at Triumph are proud of achieving this important milestone," said Mark Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer, Triumph Motorcycles (America) Ltd. "I'd especially like to thank all of our dealers who pulled out all the stops to hit our numbers last year. Now we're all going to focus on breaking Triumph's all-time US sales record of 28,500 units, which was set in 1967, within the next 5 years."
