Following the bankruptcy of the Triumph Cooperative in 1983, rights to the name were bought by entrepreneur John Bloor.Mr Bloor, whose Bloor Holdings company is still the sole owner of Triumph Motorcycles Limited, developed an all-new range of bikes that were unveiled in September 1990 at the Cologne motorcycle show.From a six-model range and 2,000 sales in 1991, the company’s range has grown to encompass 17 models, with around 50,000 sales each year across more than 31 countries.Tickets for TRIUMPH LIVE are on sale now and are available online via triumph-live.com – with an advance price of £24 (free for children under 16).
