What a year! Che anno! It's been a return to some semblance of normality but still not how any of us thought or wanted. From all of us at the Triumph Owners' Motor Cycle Club we wish everyone a Merry but safe Christmas and we hope for a better New Year where we can see more of everyone.
We already knew what it was going to look like with the prototype being shown off online and at EICMA (and the NEC), but now Triumph have officially launched the range with all the specifications and model variants. Starting at £14,600 (€19.300 or $19,100) these look excellent value for money.

Another four models have been given the Special Edition paint scheme treatment alongside the eight Gold Line models. You now have the Thruxton RS Ton Up, Street Twin EC1, Rocket 3 GT 221, and Rocket 3 R 221. All are available for one year only and may be a fairly cheap way to get a distinctive paint scheme.
Though it looks a lot more than a prototype in the videos. It was only a matter of time after the Tiger 900 range replaced the old 800s that the Tiger 1200s would also get the same treatment. The prototype looks the very image of what you'd consider an off-road capable Adventure bike would be.
...but you'll need proof of vaccination (via the NHS App) or a negative Lateral Flow test taken within the previous 48 hours to get into the venue. The TOMCC will be on stand 2A02 in Hall 2 - not too far away from the Triumph stand so make sure you visit and say hello to our volunteer stand staff.
