The Hinkley assembly has only been there for promotional and maybe UK tax reasons for quite a few years. Those of us who do not live in the UK have been buying Thailand assembled Triumphs since about 2012. Situation normal no change as far as most of the world is concerned.

The latest announcement confirms all normal production will be Thailand and R&D / TFC in UK.
Does this mean my 2011 UK built is worth more??😁

The volume production has been at Thailand for several years, Hinckley have built the high cost low volume premium bikes eg 1050, 1200 & R3's.

They are saying Hinkley production will reduce from the current 6 - 7k down to 4.5k bikes so maybe just one of the three will go to Thailand.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.
