1968 – Live the Triumph Life

Filed under: Triumph — Tags: , , — dadsvintageads @ 12:56 pm

You can live without a Triumph. But Why? Think it over. You can live a life of second best but who wants it? Not when there’s Triumph. Since way back in 1903, Triumph has led the two-wheeled world on and off the track. All because Triumph offers more of what you want from a motorcycle. Performance. There’s the famous Triumph engine. A muscular marvel of design with not an ounce of fat. There’s Triumph’s road-smoothing telescopic suspension that flattens ground with easy confidence…

And we mean every size! 2 stroke…4 stroke…4 speed…5 speed…street machines….scramblers…..trail bike and all built in the Benelli tradition of quality gained through over 60 years of manufacturing excellence…how about a mini bike that fits your car trunk and when it’s turned loose the little 4 speed demon will go 50 MPH? Has anyone developed a 125cc that can break the existing record the Benelli Sprite set in class D NHRA World Championships? How about the new 650cc Tornado…not just a 650. THE 650. Lighter and faster than anything around….
