Great news! Surprising, since they don't advertise.

Relatively speaking they are doing better, but from a investment perspective, it is still horrible. A 2.3 million pound profit from the sales of nearly 54,000 motorcycles? That's about 43 pounds per bike, and that is BEFORE taxes...

Profit is also before interest and depreciation which will be significant for a capital intensive manufacturing business. Sure glad my pension isn't invested in triumph though the bit invested in modern classic motorbikes is doing great. hard to be positive when desirable new bikes like the Yamaha mt07 are selling around 5k. Dont hold your breath for a minor player in troubled global industry facing consolidation.

Profitability might not be stellar, but hopefully it's because they are investing in R&D.  Not sure if 250 million pounds is large for a company the size of Triumph, but I'm glad to see them introducing new models.  The new Bonnie and Thruxton range should boost sales in the next few yrs.  Revamp of the whole Tiger range is also great for that hot adv segment.

In the long term, new product development is key to success.
