Triumph Emblems Hurricane, Adventurer, and Avenue Tracker Names

On April 6, 2023, Triumph filed paperwork with america Patent and Trademark Workplace (USPTO) for rights to the Triumph Hurricane nameplate. In 1973, the British model debuted the unique X-75 Hurricane. Again then, the mannequin catered to the U.S. market with an air-cooled, 740cc inline-triple and modern, Craig Vetter-designed bodywork. Sadly, the Hurricane didn’t final, with Triumph discontinuing the platform after only one 12 months and 1,200 models produced.

A half-century later, trademark filings trace at Triumph probably reviving the nameplate. This isn’t the OEM’s first try at repackaging the Hurricane for a brand new era both. In 2003, spy photographs revealed Triumph’s A13HC prototype that includes a 1,298cc four-cylinder engine and aggressive aerodynamics. Hopefully, the third time’s the appeal, although, as the corporate claims rights to the Hurricane moniker but once more.

Sadly, the paperwork don’t expose what such a mannequin may entail. Given the Hurricane’s historical past, we don’t anticipate Triumph to leverage an current platform (ought to the nameplate return to the model’s catalog). We are able to’t say the identical for Hinckley’s different trademark filings, nonetheless.

On February 28, 2023, the producer additionally known as dibs on the Triumph Avenue Tracker identify. Given the retro slant of the agency’s Bonneville sequence and incoming Bajaj-produced fashions, we wouldn’t be stunned if the Avenue Tracker debuts in both vary. Triumph’s Adventurer trademark submission is barely extra difficult, although.

Between 1972 and 1974, the TR5T Adventurer bore the title. The moniker’s second coming couldn’t be extra completely different than that twin-cylinder 500cc scrambler, as Triumph utilized the nameplate to the Thunderbird-based, cruiser-styled Adventurer 900.

Contemplating in the present day’s fashionable conception of the time period “journey”, we speculate that the British marque will save the title for a brand new ADV trim inside the Tiger household. An off-road-oriented Tiger 660 looks like a chief candidate, however as all the time, we’ll have to attend for Triumph to substantiate these suspicions earlier than we will say something for positive.
