Triumph Motorcycles, based in Hinckley, UK, posted a £2.3 million (RM14.7 million) profit for its financial year ending June 30, 2015, a turn-around from its £8.0 million (RM51.2 million) pre-tax loss the year before.

While turnover dropped slighty, from £364.4 million (RM2.3 billion) to £341.3 million (RM2.1 billion), profitability was driven by launch of the new Tiger 800 dual-purpose, and a final hurrah from four special edition Bonnevilles that ushered out Triumph’s era of air-cooled motorcycles.

Triumph continued to develop its global presence throughout 2015, expanding current dealer and distributor networks, as well as aggressively moving into markets like India and Brazil. Triumph also established sales and distribution operations in Thailand in April, increasing its presence in South-east Asia.

For 2016, Triumph’s range includes the new Street Twin, and the Speed Triple and Triple S. Also in the line-up are the T120 Bonneville, the Thruxton and the top-of-the-line Thruxton R.
