Triumph Trophy TR6P 'Saint' 1967Before purchashing the Trophy, UK Police forces had sucessfully operated Speed Twin and Thunderbird models.
The 1967 Trophy, designated TR6P, had a model name of 'Saint'. When asked what it stood for, Sales Manager Neale Shilton said 'Stops Anything In No Time'.
Like the Thunderbird (and others) the tank had a recess for a radio, if required, as some were supplied as 'radio ready'. Various combinations of fairings, legshields, panniers and top-boxes were used, according to their duties. Most machines were now delivered in white, or more precisely, 'Motorway White' althought black and other colours could be supplied.
From 1966 production, all machines used 12volt electrics and the old 'Harmonica' tank badge of the Thunderbirds was replaced by the 'EyeBrow' design.
This model was sold between 1967 and 1973. Its sucessors also carried the same name.
Sales were as follows -
1967-570: 1968-977: 1969-852: 1970-1323: 1971-154: 1972-752: 1973-25:
Note that 1971 was also the year that deliveries of the Norton Interpol began.
