Howdy,

We were looking at some Bonnies tonight at our local dealer and one thing he said kind of surprised me. He said that there are only 300 Bonnies and 600 T100's produced each year.

Really sounds kind of low to me. Even he was talking for the US alone, still kind of low.

Anyone have any links or input to prove/disprove this statement?

Those numbers sound right (all be it maybe a little low) for the US alone. The numbers of Triumphs period that come to North America is very low.

It is very nice to own something unique!! That is what excites me about my Bonnie -- anyone can own a mass produced, found on every street corner, common as can be, ride. I guess it takes people of class to look a little deeper to own something this special.

What I find amazing by the number, is how easy it is to find aftermarket parts. Quality parts at that.... and the information available so that all those mods can happen - amazing!

Wow thats interesting 1000 bikes a year and you've got about 300 million people,jeez you guys gotta get with the program !!I read somewhere Triumph were selling around 5000 bikes a year to the U.S. back in the 60s and most were sold in California,mind you BSA owned the company at the time so they probably lumped their bikes in too! But getting back to 2009, I saw a coupla bonnies and an american today,not too unusual for a Sunday ride:)J.B.

The only info I have found on the internet so far says the Triumph sold 7,500 units in 2004. Those numbers have risen since then, for sure. Back in the day, the 60's and 70's, the U.S. was Triumphs biggest market. I suspect that we still are.

Bikes sold

Read an article, but can't think where that Triumph sold 37500 bikes world wide in 2007 or 2008.
I'll keep digging and try to find it.:confused:
