After hinting at good news from the UK manufacturer last week, (http://www.moto123.com/motorcycle-news/article,great-news-bike-sales-up-so-far-in-2010-in-quebec.spy?artid=117705
), we can now confirm that 2010 is off like a lion and March 2010 is a record, with 200 units sold.
In the midst of a slight recovery within the industry, fuelled in good part by significant price cuts for non-current models, Triumph has started off this year way ahead of the 2009 pace, when they ended the year with a net sales increase of 20%.
Big year-on-year increases is what generates profits, enough to develop new model that create and fill new market segments – exactly what Triumph Canada GM Chris Ellis told us at the beginning of March in Florida.
This growth is spearheaded by some exceptional bikes amongst the 16-model range, led by the new 1600cc Thunderbird
, recently recognized by Cycle World magazine as “Cruiser of the Year”, and the 675cc Triumph Street Triple R
, hailed as “Motorcycle of the Year” by Motorcycle.com.
