|Triumph Sprint ST review - Kawasaki W650 Review|
I've included some brief histories of other famous British motorcycle marques, plus
commentaries on contemporary motorcycle development at various dates identified with
yellow background below the main text. Click on the name of the manufacturer where
highlighted a brief overview of that company. These are not
comprehensive, but allow viewers to understand the history of Triumph in context with its
historical framework and the development of contemporaneous motorcycle technology. This
work is still in progress, and more will be added as I find the pictures and data.
Input, information, images and data about these marques are welcome.
|There have been more than 3,000 individual motorcycle marques since the late 1800s when the first motorized bicycles were built. Nowhere was the motorcycle more developed and promoted than in the United Kingdom - almost 700 marques alone (according to Hugo Wilson). The story of motorcycling in the UK shows how imagination, drive, and entrepreneurship can create an entire industry. In my pages below you can find out about a few of the more well-known marques.|
