Interesting question.

The answer is that they all do. All Triumph models have tyres that are marked as tubeless.

The Classic models with wire-spoke wheels have to have inner-tubes, but the tyres are mark as tubeless. This confuses alot of people, but I believe the tyre manufacturers construct all tyres as tubeless, and then smooth the inner carcuss so that tubes can be fitted into them, if required. Thus the same tyre can perform both tubeless and tubed applications.

Does this help?

Only the wire-wheel models would be fitted with inner-tubes.
