– 2000 Triumph Legend TT
The Legend’s authentic, traditional look is derived from the Thunderbird, using the same curvaceous, teardrop fuel tank, wire-spoked wheels with chromed rims and reverse cone silencers that make it such an attractive and genuine design.
The 885cc three-cylinder engine too is borrowed from the Thunderbird, tuned for the sort of abundant torque and crisp throttle response which has already made this power unit such a favourite with many Triumph riders.
The Legend is particularly easy to manoeuvre at low speeds and when parking thanks to its low seat and narrow profile and with a restriction kit* also available, it’s an ideal entry into the world of classically styled Triumphs.
As with all of Triumph’s classic machines, Triumph offers a comprehensive range of accessories so that the discerning rider is able to personalise the motorcycle exactly to his or her tastes.
