1959 TRIUMPH TIGRESS


1959 Triumph Tigress
ID# W17W606
Identical in construction the BSA Sunbeam and the badge-engineered Triumph Tigress scooters were launched in 1958 and built until 1964. (BSA, the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer had acquired Triumph in 1951). Two engines sizes were available, a 175cc two-stroke and a 250cc four-stroke twin-cylinder. This particular example has the 250cc version. The odometer reads only 312 km. Probably the best British scooter produced, the Sunbeam/Tigress was designed as a complete entity. It was not made up of modified motor cycle components, as many people had expected and was quiet, powerful and good to ride. Performance was superior to most standard scooters, with a top speed of 70mph (113km/h) for the 250cc version.
