As the old adage goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and to that end, Triumph Malaysia has always been a keen advocate of customers trying before buying its motorcycles. For this weekend, Triumph Malaysia is having a Try-Days weekend event at its flagship store in Section 13, Petaling Jaya.

A whole series of Triumph motorcycles are available for public test rides. These include the Daytona R and Street Triple R road bikes, as well as the retro-style “Modern Classics” series of the recently launched Triumph Street Twin, Bonneville T120 and Thruxton R.

On the dual-purpose side, there are four models on test – the Tiger 800 XCx, Tiger 800 XRx LRH, Tiger Sport 1050 and Tiger Explorer XC. Also available for test rides is the Triumph Trophy SE tourer, and two models from Triumph’s cruiser range, the America and Thunderbird Storm.

As an added attraction, Saturday sees a durian fest from 3pm to 6pm, while kambing golek will be served on Sunday at the same time. The Triumph Try-Days will happen over both Saturday and Sunday, August 6 and 7, from 10am to 3pm.

Riders are required to bring their riding gear, including helmet, gloves and proper shoes. Riders will not be allowed to ride in shorts, and are reminded to bring their identification and motorcycle license, which should be a minimum “L” for the “B-full” class.
