Iconic British motorcycle brand, Triumph, has launched its own Approved pre-owned motorcycles programme. Available through the Hinckley-based firm’s national dealer network, Approved Triumph Pre-Owned Motorcycles gives riders increased confidence when buying a used bike.
As part of the programme, each motorcycle is put through a multi-point inspection by a qualified Triumph technician to ensure peace of mind. Alongside a full engine diagnosis, exhaust system examination and electrical inspection, technicians undertake a comprehensive frame, suspension, steering, final drive, wheel and tyre check.
Adhering to Triumph’s meticulous quality standards, brake systems – including ABS, fluid levels, hose integrity, disc tolerance and pad wear – are also scrutinised, while fairings, seat panels, fuel tank and bodywork are checked for correct fit and finish.
Finally, each model is subject to a full road test by a qualified Triumph technician. This includes hot and cold starting, brake function test, gear change operation, stability test and a comprehensive engine performance check. Only when the technician is happy that the motorcycle performs exactly as it should, is it returned to the showroom for a valet, ready for sale to its new rider.
All motorcycles available through the programme will be Triumph models under five years of age from first registration and will have completed no more than 25,000 miles. Any service required within 1,000 miles or 3 months will be completed, along with a multi-point inspection and all rectification work carried out as required. All Approved pre-owned motorcycles will also have a full service history recorded on Warranty-On-Line.
Paul Lilly, general manager of Triumph UK and Ireland, commented: “After undertaking considerable market research, we found that the majority of riders looking to purchase a used model were often put off by the perceived risk of hidden mechanical issues.
“With a comprehensive multi-point inspection, Approved Triumph Pre-Owned Motorcycles ensures that each bike has undergone a thorough performance, quality and safety check by a qualified technician. We’re confident that each model approved by the scheme will perform like a factory fresh bike for its new owner for complete peace of mind.”
