Nerd out at the Triumph Factory Experience

It’s been a busy few days for Triumph with the release of the Speedmaster and the Bobber Black.

Continuing with their love of unveiling things, the company has now lifted the sheets on its new Factory Visitor Experience.

From the 1st of November, you can head to the Hinckley factory and immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Triumph. Members of the public, that’s us, can get up close and personal with Steve McQueen’s original Great Escape movie bike, Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 2 Speed Triple. Guided tours are on offer which will take you back through historical achievements then highlight modern design, engineering and racing triumphs.

The factory is free to visit, and guided tours can be booked at £15 for 90 minutes. You will see the engineering and manufacturing facilities and unprecedented insight into how the company builds their motorcycles. From concept to fruition.

 

Triumph isn’t the first manufacturer to offer consumers a personal view. Norton has invited people to walk around the factory and learn about the history of the brand. Stuart Garner has also opened the door to his beautiful home, Donington Hall.

Triumph also offers a cafe, meaning you can take your family out for lunch while indulging in some motorcycle nerdery. You can even pop into the Triumph Shop for branded merchandise, clothing and limited-edition Visitor Experience souvenirs.

Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer, Triumph Motorcycles, said:

“We are very proud and excited to be able to invite Triumph and motorcycling fans from around the world to come and experience our brand first-hand, here at the factory where every Triumph starts its life.

“With so many important and rare bikes on display, the Visitor Experience will be a must for motorcycle and movie fans alike, but also an opportunity to help us celebrate our proud heritage and our passion for building great motorcycles. We hope this rewards and inspires every fan of the brand and ignites a love for Triumph in a whole new generation.’’

 

We love this open door policy from motorcycle brands and will be heading down to visit the factory soon.
