Latest Acquisitions

This is where you will find all the information on which machines have most recently been displayed within the National Motorcycle Collection


In 1999 Triumph was about to make a big leap into the world of  600cc race-replica middleweights, a class that had almost superseded the 750cc super sports bikes.

Triumph were trying hard with the TT, being only the second manufacturer to fuel-inject a 600cc road bike. Whilst the early bikes suffered from glitches with the fuel injection performance, there was a lot to love. With lots of high-quality suspension and brake components, the chassis and brakes on the TT 600 were sublime, gaining much praise in the motorcycling press. Later fuelling fixes to the fuel-injection system helped to make up for a lack of bottom end power and some classy colour schemes made the TT a distinctive machine which set it apart from its Japanese competitors.

The machine shown here is a pristine and utterly original example of one of the first machines made in 2000. The bike has been kindly donated by our great friend John Moore, who has restored a number of machines in the collection and is an expert on Military machines as well as “Hinckley” Triumphs.
