One of the world's largest motorcycle companies, Triumph Motorcycles has its roots set in 1885 when it was founded by Siegfried Bettmann as the New Triumph Company Limited, along with the Triumph Motor Company, which became defunct in 1984 and is currently dormant under the auspices of BMW who own the marque, hopefully, the brand will be revitalized and launched anew. The Triumph TR6 is a 2-door roadster built from 1968 to 1976. Up for grabs is a 1972 Triumph TR6 in excellent condition and reportedly with 65,000 miles on the odometer.
The TR6 was a far call from its predecessor, the TR5. It featured a new design language along with new colors. This 1972 Triumph TR6 sports a clean blue exterior finish. The front features a classic setup of round headlights flanking a chrome grille with the TR6 logo in the center. Lower, you'll find a gleaming front chrome bumper. The sides are bereft of any ornamentation apart from the TR6 on the Union Jack decal on the rear quarter panels and the chrome side mirrors. The rear is reminiscent of the BMW 2002 car, as it features a horizontal taillight design with a chrome rear bumper. The seller reports that the front and rear have been re-chromed hence their new look. The car is topped with a new black convertible top, while it sits on a set of aluminum mag wheels with the TR6 on the center caps. The interior features a spotless white décor which is new, with a walnut veneer over a plywood dashboard. Behind the 3-spoke steering wheel can be seen the speedometer and tachometer. Auxiliary gauges are located in the center of the dash; the stock radio has been replaced with a Pioneer head unit with a CD player.
Triumph cars were known for their nimbleness and their capacity to zip around. The 1972 Triumph TR6 came equipped with a 2.5L inline-6 engine while the only transmission option available was a 4-speed manual that sends power to the rear wheels. The seller reports that the car is equipped with dual Weber carburetors. The TR6 carbureted version was known to have an output of 106hp out of the factory with a 120 mph top speed.
