From 1st June Triumph dealerships in England will be back open for business following advice received from the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA). Social distancing rules are being practiced by all the dealerships. No news for Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland but Dublin Triumph is back open already.
The MCIA have been in discussion with the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Skills and have clarified that the announcement about the car-dealer networks did also include motorcycle dealer networks. Other motorcycle businesses can also open in England from 1st June.
Selected workshops in Scotland and Wales are open for essential maintenance work only. If your machine needs essential maintenance then you will need to book it in, you can't just turn up out of the blue.
Triumph have relaxed the servicing requirements for time-based services (1 month / 3 months / annual) without it affecting your warranty provided the service is carried out as soon as practical when dealers re-open fully. However mileage based service intervals will need to be followed still.
Triumph are hoping that the re-opening of dealerships will allow them to start delivering machines that have been paid for but not been able to be transported. Currently they are being stored at Hinckley but from 1st June the dealers in England should be able to receive deliveries. Extra storage space had to be organised at Hinckley as it wasn't possible to stop the many machines that were already in transit.
For more information, please contact your Triumph dealer.
