>>> don't know if this is good or bad for Triumph. >>>

Only Mr Bloor could say for sure, but I suspect it's largely immaterial to Triumph.

If the reporter was choosing his words carefully, then Triumph wasn't a very serious target anyway. "Discussions" are very different from negotiations, and the rather broad goal of "acquisition or partnership" is generally code for "we don't have any tangible ideas to bring to the table, but we'd like to get our nose in the tent, look at your valuables, and see if we can sweet-talk you into parting with some of them."

It really depends on Mr. Bloor's financial position, as John said.

TBH personally, I would regard it as good news as there would always be the spectre of asset stripping, if anything like that went ahead.

As with Piaggio & their ownership of Moto Guzzi, I mistrust the motivations of scooter manufacturers. IMO they will always tend towards the low budget solution.

Nige. :cool:
