Triumph Adventurer

Nice Clean, Well Equiped Cruiser. One glance tells you all you need to know about the most laid-back of our family of classic triples. The Adventurer is lean, stylish and immaculately finished, with an authentic look that reflects Triumph's unique heritage.

Yet this bike is very much built to be ridden as well as admired. At its heart is a refined 885cc, liquid-cooled three-cylinder powerplant whose generous delivery of mid-range torque is perfectly suited to relaxed cruising.

The chassis is designed for light, responsive handling. And the roomy, upright riding position helps make the Adventurer's low-slung seat the perfect place from which to watch the world pass by.

Like every Triumph, the Adventurer comes with excellent brakes and top-class build quality. Some things are best left to you, however. Select from the varied range of accessories to make your bike stand out even more from the crowd.

The uniquely individual Adventurer. For laid-back classic style with modern-day sophistication, look no further. - Triumph
