Triumph TE-1 Finishes Testing
The development prototype given the name 'TE-1' has now officially completed. The project was set up by Triumph and three other partners (Williams, Integral Powertrain, University of Warwick) to provide information for the future development of electric Triumph motorcycles - the results are impressive.
New Names and New Colours
Triumph have introduced a new set of colours for the summer season over their entire Bonneville range. Not content with that, they are also renaming three of the models in the range. The new names makes it clear what the bikes are at a glance - might they do the same with the Street Triple... we'll see.
Triumph buys out OSET
In a bid to kick-start their enduro and motocross offerings, Triumph have acquired the OSET electric off-road motorcycle manufacturer based in the UK. OSET offer electric off-road machines suitable for trials competitions for ages 5 to adult. This will also bring a whole new set of generations to Triumph.
Events in July
TOMCC Branches put on a lot of events throughout the year so why not go along to one or two... or more? Some are open to all bikers but be aware that some are Members Only. If you're not a Member then you can always join on the day (though drop the Branch an email or phone call before to confirm) or online.
TOMCC Membership with a Brand New Triumph
From Triumph Escondido in California USA. If you buy a Brand New Triumph from them and join the TOMCC (online) then and there, they will deduct the Membership fee from the price of the motorcycle meaning that you get the first year of Membership for free. Now that's an offer worth buying a Triumph for.
TOMCC Branch Merchandise
As it says, if you place an order for more than £20 of Branch Merchandise before the 10th June then you will get a free neck tube! What's more, they will print the branch logo on the neck tube also! You lucky people. This only applies to branches who have elected to sell their merchandise through Redline.
Winner of Winter Raffle Announced
The National Motorcycle Museum Winter Raffle was won by Andrew Quicke who is shown collecting his prize from the Museum. The museum reopened in mid-2021 following the easing of pandemic restrictions and is still recovering from the loss of income so need the raffle income while they get back up to speed.
Museum Entry Discount Refused
In sharp contrast to what the Museum Manager promised. Back in March we received an offer from the Museum Manager to publicise their Event days and to give Members of the TOMCC discounted admission into the Museum with proof of Membership. Unfortunately that has turned out not to be the case.
