Description

Product Description

Take an authoritative, thorough, and heavily illustrated look at Triumph motorcycles, from beloved classics to popular new models!

What do Marlon Brando, James Dean, Steve McQueen, Bob Dylan, and Arthur Fonzerelli all have in common? All of these men define the very essence of cool, and all have owned Triumph motorcycles.

Originally formed as a bicycle company in 1885, in 1902 Triumph produced its first motorcycle, which was simply a bicycle fitted with a Belgian Minerva engine. From there, the company, in various iterations, went on to build some of the most iconic motorcycles of all time.

For the first time ever, The Complete Book of Classic and Modern Triumph Motorcycles 1937-Today collects all of the motorcycles from this iconic brand in a single volume. Written by respected Triumph expert Ian Falloon, all of the major and minor models are covered, with an emphasis on the most exemplary, era-defining motorcycles such as the Thunderbird, Tiger, Trophy, Bonneville, and new machines such as the Speed Triple, Thruxton, and Daytona 675.

The Complete Book of Classic and Modern Triumph Motorcycles 1937-Today will also feature important non-production models and non-factory racing and speed-record-setting motorcycles that have become integral parts of Triumph''s stellar reputation. This is a book no Triumph fan will want to be without!

Review

"There are quite a few books about Triumph motorcycles, some recent, others having been published some years ago. Among them all, Ian Falloon''s latest book, "The Complete Book of Classic and Modern Triumph Motorcycles 1937-Today" is perhaps the most comprehensive. If you''ve been looking to add Triumph to your motorcycle library, but you don''t have the shelf space for all the books out there on the brand, The Complete Book of Classic and Modern Triumph Motorcycles 1937-Today may be one of the best ways to get the broadest history and model information in one book." - Ultimate Motorcycling

''Thereâ??s much pleasure to be had from browsing through, deciding which Bonneville youâ??d have in your dream garage''

Best and most complete insight into the final days of the original Triumph motorcycle company, in the large and impressive book!

So many Triumph books have been written over the years, but all have ignored the final days and final chapter of the motorcycle history of the old Triumph company, until now. Author Ian Falloon sought out the last dealers, like myself, who were there beyond that last gasps of the company, and he included our narratives about those last days. Fresh photos and period brochures that have not been seen before keep this large coffee table book interesting, with the emphasis on later decades, as the early history has been covered so many times before. Including a less extensive accounting of that early history here gives those new Triumph enthusiasts a knowledge of marque history, without the same blow by blow development of every early model, which has been covered before in earlier books. Highly recommended as an addition to your existing Triumph motorcycle history library, or as a first look into the marque. Makes an impressive gift, too!

Excellent book. Lots of good photographs and/or promotional illustrations of Triumph''s throughout the years. Interesting side stories about key people associated with the brand. Generally a good balance between photos, technical details, and general historical text although some of the detailed discussions of incremental changes made yearly to model lines during the 40s through 60s might not be relevant to many readers. Although the book is subtitled "1937-Today" there are actually several pages and photographs covering the period from 1905 to 1936 so in that regard the book actually spans the full history Triumph motorcycles. Coverage of the recent Hinckley bikes and the brands transition and rebirth connects owners of current bikes to the bikes and riders of the past. If I have a complaint it''s only that, by covering Hinkleys right up to the publication date (2015), this book naturally dates itself. 2015 doesn''t form a natural stopping point for discussing Triumph. We''ll soon need a second edition!

I have always loved Triumph motorcycles, but only recently have I owned my first Triumph bike (I''m 51). I am not even close to being a Triumph history or model buff, so if there are errors in this book, they do not jump out and grab me. With that being said, the book appears to be a very good documentation of the models and years, with adequate background history as well. Its almost a little overwhelming, but none the less, a very good book, with good pictures and content. I feel that if you read this book cover to cover exhaustively, like I did as a teenager, your knowledge of the Triumph motorcycle marque would be second to none. My only disappointment with the book is that it is a larger coffee table sized book. It doesn''t fit on my shelves unless inserted lengthwise, or on its side.

There has been so much written about Triumph motorcycles and this is another book which covers much the same material. The book was well written, covered most models sufficiently, and had many great pictures. If you already have a number of Triumph history books, this book will add little to your collection, however, if you don''t, this would be a great book which lists most of the post Speed Twin models. It was worth the price!

I have great respect for Ian Falloon and own and enjoy some of his earlier publications. Paramount is his work on The Art of the Motorcycle. I purchased the ''Triumph'' history since I don''t have much in my library about this British icon. The photo history is very nice and the background related to development and marketing, or lack thereof, by Turner is an interesting read. Where the publication falls short is in proof reading of text, captions and table information. There are just too many errors in all these areas. I also have Falloon''s similar publication "The Complete Book of BMW Motorcycles" and found that, especially in the later chapters, it too has many obvious and basic errors in text, captions, and table information. Both are still valuable reference books for a general audience member like myself but the experts will require a rework if there is to be a second edition.

This must be the definitive tome for the Triumph enthusiast. All the history is there, and illustrated to support the text. It is a large book, on quality paper, so makes an imposing addition to one''s set of motorcycle books.

The Triumph works at Priory Street, Coventry, in 1915. Most of these are Model Hs for war duties. 57,000 Model Hs were produced between 1915 and 1923.


The Ricardo was the first overhead-valve Triumph. Not renowned for its excellent handling, the Model H chassis was tested by the more powerful fourvalve engine. The wheels were 26 inches front and rear and the braking rudimentary. In production form it weighed 250 pounds.


Edward Turner, never shy of publicity, appears here with a Speed Twin, posing for publicity photos with actress Rita Hayworth at Columbia Pictures in 1947.


Extremely purposeful and good looking, the 1951 T100 Tiger.


Craig Vetter’s X75 Hurricane was the first factory custom sports bike, and one of the most successful. The exhaust system was unique, and the one-piece fiberglass tank and seat unit were groundbreaking. Vetter’s idea was more to improve the fl awed original triple rather than creating a chopper-like custom.


Five generations of the Speed Triple from the T509. More than any other model, the Speed Triple symbolized the Triumph renaissance as Hinckley approached the end of their second decade. Triumph Motorcycles America.
