- 2001 Triumph Legend TT
The Legend TT is designed for riders looking for a classically styled roadster
with lively performance plus everyday versatility.
Like Triumph's other classically styled bikes, the Legend features an appealing blend of period styling plus modern engine and chassis engineering, with a look that is clean and classically elegant.
A teardrop fuel tank, reverse-cone silencers and traditional laced wheels with chromed rims combine with the distinctive three-cylinder engine to give an attractive period feel.
The 885cc, liquid-cooled motor comes with a durable powder-coated finish, and follows the successful format set by Triumph's other classic triples. It is tuned for crisp throttle response and generous torque output at low and medium engine speeds.
The Legend is notably easy to ride, thanks to its low seat and a chassis designed for easy handling. The engine is available with a restriction kit*, which makes it an ideal entry to the world of three-cylinder classic motorcycling.
For owners who enjoy personalising their machines, the Legend's distinctive look can be further enhanced with a selection from Triumph's extensive range of accessories.
Proven 885cc liquid-cooled 3-cylinder engine with DOHC, 12 valves.
Satin black powder coated engine for long term durability, with classic styling.
