Maybe a sign that the end of the line of the present 1050 TS  is imminent , Youles of Blackburn are selling new ones at 9499. Whether other dealers will follow and what effect this may have on part ex prices obviously remains to be seen.

How does it work with bikes in showrooms?  Do dealers have to actually purchase from Triumph before getting them to the showroom, or are they obtained on a credit facility, with the balance paid when sold?

Just wondering whether it may simply be the dealer shifting what hes already got as fast as possible, having missed the entire spring and early summer peak season.  Bills need paying, after all.

I know from years back the dealers have to purchase the bikes up front, in fact a couple of years ago I went to demo an EXP which embarrassingly had an engine issue and was being sorted under warranty as the dealer had purchased the bike which was covered under warranty which was why they wouldn't just put another bike on demo, imo Triumph are not too helpfull to their dealers

Some dealers buy stock on credit, others pay cash so when not paying interest on loans, can offer a better deal. There is some old stock kicking about, getting discounted. A chum was in the finance game.

When i did the factory tour at Xmas, it was mentioned then that all bikes are pre-sold to dealers, so they build bikes to order.

I went on factory tours in Aug '18 & Mar '19, never saw any bikes being built, there was one on the production line. Machinery was running on camshafts & cranks. Wasn't many people to be seen. Saw loads of smashed up Bonnies, road testing by over enthusiastic journo's.
Went back in 2000, it was busy then.
