Triumph Model W

From CycleChaos
Triumph Model W

Triumph introduced a number of new models for the 1927 season, including a two valve sports machine to replace the 'Ricardo' and a sporting version of the Model P, typed the 'Q', for those seeking less glamorous transport there was a new single cylinder side valve lightweight, the W. This machine is most notable for its unusual displacement of 277cc, adopted to maximise the engine size whilst remaining in the sub 220lbs tax bracket.
