Triumph Motorcycle Wallpaper
Named after the historic Bonneville Salt Flats where Triumph broke numerous land speed records in the 1950s, the Bonneville is for many people the most iconic Triumph of all time.
Originally introduced in 1959, the Bonneville was the sporting bike of the day and the bike to beat in production-based racing through to the 1970s.
1887 to 2010
Triumph Motorcycles is the British motorcycle marquee that produces a wide range of sport, cruiser and touring motorcycles that are all designed to provide outstanding motorcycling experiences.
First established in 1902 and now located in Hinckley, Leicestershire, England, Triumph has set the pace with many historical motorcycles.
Most Powerful Victory
The 2010 Victory Vegas Limited Edition (LE) motorcycle represents the leanest and meanest Victory ever offered. Featuring the Victory Freedom 106/6 with Stage 2 cams, the new Vegas LE pumps out 97 Horsepower and 113 ft/lb of torque and features a Bonneville Salt Flats inspired paint scheme to let everybody know how serious it is.
Steve McQueen Bonneville
British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph and Swiss watch manufacturer TAG Heuer have collaborated to create a special, one-of-a-kind "Bonneville Heuer" Triumph motorcycle. The association between Triumph and TAG Heuer comes as a result of their common values and the legacy of Steve McQueen, who was famously linked to both brands.
Pending ratification by AMA Racing and the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme), Chris Carr is once again the fastest man in the world on two wheels, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports.
The seven-time AMA Grand National Champion, riding the Denis Manning-built No. 7 streamliner, recaptured the provisional outright world and national land-speed records on Thursday, Sept. 24. Carr’s two-pass average of 367.382 mph in the measured mile was set at the AMA-sanctioned Land Speed Shootout at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
Five Speed Records
Five new world land speed records have been set on Triumph motorcycles during the 2009 BUB Bonneville Speed Trials at the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats. British racing journalist Alan Cathcart of Denemoore, Claverdon, UK, teamed up with South Bay Triumph owner Matt Capri of Lomita, California to set the records with the iconic British motorcycle at its namesake race course.
