The paint shop, a major new investment at Triumph’s Leicestershire headquarters, will be pressed into operation in the spring of this year.
The Duke took a tour of the rest of the factory as well as Triumph’s Factory Visitor Experience (FVE), which was recently opened to the public. Later, he unveiled a commemorative fuel tank emblazoned with a Union Jack design which was hand-painted on site by one of Triumph’s official tank painters, to mark the visit and the opening of the FVE.
During the visit, William fixed a Triumph badge to the engine of a Triumph Tiger 1200 adventure motorcycle, one of the most recent new Triumph models launched. Known to be a keen biker, William tried out a Tiger 1200 for himself.
