Triumph bikes are stamped with a 17 digit VIN. For example, my "UK" bike VIN is:
where I've inserted the letter x for the last 6 digits.
A discussion about the VIN can be found on the following Wikipedia page:
The article sates:
"One consistent element of the VIS is the 10th digit, which is required worldwide to encode the model year of the vehicle."
In the case of my VIN this appears to be the 11th digit; ie "A", which is equal to 2010.
Regarding the Plant Code it states:
"Another consistently-used element (which is compulsory in North America) is the use of the 11th character to encode the factory of manufacture of the vehicle."
which appears to digit 10 in my VIN and letter "G".
Does anyone know of the complete list of Plant Codes for modern Triumphs?
Also, if anyone knows of a complete VIN decoder for Triumphs then it would be greatly appreciated since there are other parts of my VIN that I cannot decipher based on the information in the Wiki article. I suspect that this is due to the Wiki article having a US bias.
