Following the demise of Triumph at Meriden in 1983, the company was resurrected by John Bloor who funded and led the re-design and manufacture of the 'Hinckley' Triumph, as Britain's only major bike maker. Said to be based on the best of Japanese practice, the completely new Triumphs were undoubtedly right up to the minute in design but always retained some traditional Triumph touches. One of the most highly regarded is the 'Triple' range, with an advanced DOHC 12 valve engine producing a hearty 100BHP or so. Both reliable and well-made, the only criticism of the unit seemed to be 'bulletproof but over-engineered', hardly a demerit in most riders' eyes. The stylish 'Sprint 900' debuted in 1992 in both naked and faired forms and was revised for 1995 with new hollow-cast wheels and nitrogen rear damping, remaining thus until the model was discontinued in 1997. P815 JVX is that revised model in Triumph Red with the characteristic charcoal engine finish. In 'Executive' trim with top-box, it comes from the hands of a mature enthusiast having covered a little over 30,000 miles from new. It is in excellent and original condition and, following the usual safety checks, will be ready for the season. Following minimal use in recent years, it is hoped to have an MOT by sale day. An excellent machine at a modest price.
