    Hi Easyider4,

    There's no easy answer as there is no single Country of manufacture.

    Different parts are manufactured and sourced from different Countries.

    Triumph have two factories in Thailand where Frames, Swing Arms
    Header systems, Plastic injection moulded parts,
    fuel tanks and die cast parts are produced,
    and where there is also a Paint shop.

    Other parts such as all Crankshafts for all Models are made at Hinckley
    together with various machining processes such as Camshafts and crankcases.

    Other parts are manufactured in other Countries,
    for example the Audio system comes from Radio Sound Inc. U.S.
    and the Brake Calipers are made by Nissin - a Japanese Company.

    There are assembly lines at Hinckley ( UK ) as well as in Thailand
    to bring together all the parts for any given Model.

    Hope that helps !

    It's an interesting question which maybe should have been worded "where are they assembled?" and in that respect the Troohies were all assembled in Hinckley I believe.

    Although Coconut states the crankshafts are made at Hinckley, they are actually forged and twisted in another country.  Only the machining of the crankshaft is carried out at Hinckley.

    In other words, there is no straightforward answer !

    tbh this is true of most vehicles these days, long gone are the days when a vehicle was solely built in a particular country.

    By asking “ manufactured” I meant assembled or “rolled off the line as a customer ready product”.  My last bike was “Made in the USA”.  I just wondered if I can say the Trophy is “Made in England”.

    Without a doubt, yes.

    It’s very sad, but it was announced that all volume assembly is due to come to an end at Hinckley and only around 4,500 bikes of around 60,000 will still be built at Hinckley and there will be redundancies as remaining volume assembly is shipped out to Thailand. All Tiger 1200’s will now be Thai.
    My 25 year relationship with Triumph and it’s bikes will not now be renewed with another Triumph purchase :003: They can stick it!
