Triumph Motorcycles seems to be doing well in the shrinking motorcycle industry.
The British manufacturer of motorcycles released its annual sales numbers for the 2017 year. This year they sold 63,404 motorcycles, an increase of almost 13% when compared to last year when 56,253 motorcycles were sold.
Triumph did add five new motorcycles to its product line this year which includes the Street Triple, Bonneville Bobber Black, Speedmaster, and the Tiger 800 and the Tiger 1200 adventure motorcycle.
Revenues increased by more than ($120) one-hundred twenty million and their profits by more than ($10) ten million. There was also an increase of more than one percent in the amount of motorcycles sold overseas from to eighty-six percent (86%) this year versus eighty-five percent (85%) last year (figures rounded). Sales in India also increased. Currently, there are fourteen dealers throughout the country of India which initially broke ground in 2013 with ten available models which has since increased to sixteen models.
For those in the United Kingdom, make the time to visit the Triumph Visitor Experience which is free of charge and allows you the opportunity to take a tour of the Triumph facility. The tour includes the history of Triumph, the manufacturing process from beginning to end, a merchandise store, and if you are hungry, stop for a bite to eat at the 1902 Cafe.
